HAIR CARE IN WINTER: HEALTHY AND BEAUTIFUL HAIR DESPITE WINTER WEATHER

Caring for your hair in winter - cold, wet weather and heated air are a challenge for your health every year - and also for your hair. To ensure that your hair survives the cold season well, it is worth optimizing your hair care routine in winter. You can find out what your hair needs when the days get shorter and other winter tips here.

HOW WINTER AFFECTS HAIR

The mix of wet cold and dry heated air is a challenge for the hair. It loses moisture more quickly. This makes the hair appear dull and lackluster, the ends become brittle and the risk of split ends and hair breakage increases. Luckily, with the right hair care and a few tips, you can prevent such hair problems. The most important thing is that the hair does not dry out too much and is protected from exposure to very cold or very warm temperatures (blow-drying, styling).

WHAT WILL PROTECT MY HAIR IN WINTER?

Moisture is important for healthy, shiny and supple hair. In the cold season, consciously choose a shampoo that is moisturizing. A moisturizing conditioner like Renaissance Conditioner for stressed hair is also a good addition in winter. Care products with a moisturizing effect strengthen and protect the hair from the inside out during the cold season. Since washing your hair can have a negative impact on the hair's moisture balance, you should wash your hair a maximum of three times a week in winter. Wet hair is particularly sensitive. It is therefore better to avoid brushing and combing until your hair is at least two-thirds dry. Before blow-drying or styling with a straightener or curling iron, it is advisable to apply heat protection to your hair. This protects the hair from drying out.

A head covering is ideal to protect your hair from cold, snow and rain. Just make sure the hat or cap isn't too tight. If caps and hats are too tight, the friction is so great that the hair can break off. It is also important to never go outside with wet hair. This also applies if you put on a hat. Wet hair is the most vulnerable and can be damaged by headgear. By the way, hats and caps that are lined on the inside with a very smooth material such as silk or satin are ideal.

Special silk turbans and satin sleeping caps protect your hair from dry heating air and friction at night. Alternatively, use a satin or silk pillowcase and braid or tie your hair in a bun to sleep. This means that long hair in particular is optimally protected from friction, hair breakage and tangling.

WHAT HELP AGAINST DRY HAIR IN WINTER?

If you tend to have dry hair in winter or simply want to prevent your hair from suffering, you should switch to moisturizing care. This means that shampoo and conditioner should provide the hair with extra moisture. In addition, a hair mask or hair treatment is a good addition. It is also good to massage hair oil into your hair. The tips in particular benefit from this.

It is also recommended to cut your hair in the cold season. Because dry, brittle ends tend to split ends. Unfortunately, split ends can travel up winter-battered hair and affect several centimeters. Then the hair looks dull and lifeless. At the hairdresser, the ends are cut and brittle ends with split ends are removed. The cut hair is therefore healthier and the risk of hair breakage is reduced.

WHICH HAIR TREATMENT IN WINTER?

In winter, the hair mask or hair treatment should be particularly rich. Many moisturizing and greasy ingredients like the Renaissance Mask for stressed hair are ideal for hair in the winter. To ensure that the hair treatment or mask has a particularly intensive effect, it is a good idea to wrap a warm, damp towel around your head. The heat helps the active ingredients penetrate deeper into the hair.
