Winter hair care – get ready for the cold

As much as Aussies try to deny the existence of winter, there's no shying away from the fact that a drop in temperature can wreak havoc with your hair.

So what are some ways to tame your tresses when the cold comes to town?

Moisturise

This is the most important of our winter hair care tips. While moisture is important all-year round, in winter your natural hair is even more prone to dryness due to exposure to harsh elements like wind and cool temperatures. If you feel like your hair is already feeling damaged from exposure to the elements, consider swapping to a restorative shampoo and conditioner like .

Hydrate

Yes, we realise this is very similar to moisturise... but did you know that drinking water actually has an effect on your hair? Start your hair hydration from the inside and get your recommended serve of H2O per day (warm water is fine if you're feeling cold!), and your locks will thank you for it. The recommended amount is roughly 2 litres, but can vary slightly depending on your size and lifestyle.

Protect

A great way to protect your hair is to seal the ends with an oil based product as an added layer of defence against the elements. Introduce a leave-in conditioning product like Nutrifier DD Balm from L'oréal Professionnel in the cooler months. Apply to the ends of your dry hair as needed and style as usual before heading out. Formulated with Glycerol and Coconut Oil this dryness defense balm from the Serie Expert range offers just the right amount of nourishment to dry hair.

Treat yo'self

Winter is the perfect time to treat your tresses to a little TLC with a nourishing hair masque. We adore the Nutrifier Masque from the Serie Expert range for dry, undernourished hair. The Glycerol filled mask nourishes hair and leaves it full of lustre, shine and softness. It's also great for preventing further breakage and split ends.
