A Guide To Winter Hair Care

winter hair

Winter hair, right? With cold weather and central heating causing a lack of moisture in the air, exposure to the elements can cause your scalp and hair a lot of stress and damage over the winter months. Luckily, there are several things you can do to combat these dry winter hair concerns. With our healthy hair tips, you can flaunt shiny and nourished hair in winter while you wait for the weather to warm up.

Why is My Hair So Dry in Winter?

Your regular hair care regimen won’t always do the trick when it comes to caring for dry winter hair. Hair in winter often becomes dehydrated and needs a little extra TLC, so it’s important to switch up your routine to help combat dry strands and an itchy, flaky scalp. 

From finding the best shampoo for dry hair to using a leave-in conditioner for dry hair, here are our winter hair tips to keep both your scalp and tresses looking healthy and beautiful all winter long.

How to Get Healthy Hair: Top Winter Hair Tips

1. Switch to the best shampoo for dry hair to lock in moisture

When it comes to finding a dry hair shampoo, it’s hard to go wrong with our Argan Oil & Shea Moisture Rich Shampoo. Fruit stem cell complex and argan oil deeply nourish and condition while moisturising shea butter supports elasticity and strength. The result is noticeably softer, smoother hair with an amazing sheen.

2. Add a weekly dry hair treatment to your routine to deeply nourish hair

Using a weekly dry hair treatment can deeply nourish and condition to boost hydration, soften, and tame unruly tresses to leave hair sleek, smooth and with a luxurious shine. 

Look for products that contain nourishing ingredients like marula, rosehip, argan, and pomegranate oils.

3. Use a dry hair leave-in conditioner to combat frizz and dry strands

The perfect companion to our Argan Oil Shampoo, our Argan Oil & Shea Moisture Rich Deep Leave- In Conditioner is enriched with fruit stem cell complex and argan oil to deeply nourish and condition. Meanwhile, moisturising shea butter supports elasticity, strength, and manageability to help minimise the look of split ends and frizz.

4. Deeply hydrate dry winter hair overnight with a hair oil

Applying a hair oil though the ends of your tresses at the end of your haircare routine is a great way to nourish dry winter hair. Look for products rich in argan or pomegranate oils to give your hair a hydration boost.

5. Prevent dry hair by turning down the temperature on your shower

When the temperature drops outside over the winter months, it can be tempting to turn up the heat in your shower. However, a steamy shower can actually dehydrate your tresses and cause a dry and flaky scalp. Instead, opt for a lukewarm shower where possible to help promote shinier hair in winter. 

Similarly, try to keep hair washing to a minimum over winter to prevent stripping your strands of their all-important natural oils. If you are a loyal daily washer, then use a hydrating and gentle cleansing formula, like our CannaCell Vitamin Shampoo and Conditioner, to prevent dry winter hair. 

If you are trying a product or ingredient for the first time, we always recommend a patch test first.
