Six Tips for Healthy Winter Hair

Thursday, January 17, 2013 | Tips & How-Tos

Along with snow, winter often ushers in lackluster locks and untamed tresses. Fortunately, you don’t have to suffer a head full of unruly hair. Use these simple tricks to keep your locks lusciously hydrated, frizz-free and beautiful all season long.


Switch Up Your Shampoo

Switching up your shampoo once a week can help nix buildup and to give your locks a dose of beneficial ingredients.


Use Leave-In Conditioner

During the dry winter months, moisture is at a premium. Lock in vital hydration by using a leave-in conditioner at least once a week.


Shampoo Less

Washing hair every day can be incredibly drying, so skip a shampoo (or two).


Eat For Healthy Hair

Stock up on salmon, beans, dark leafy greens and nuts for beautiful hair, skin and nails. If you’re into taking supplements, look into biotin and fish oil (but make sure to speak with your doctor first).


Colder, Shorter Showers

Prolonged exposure to hot water can dry you—and your hair—out. Spend less time in the hot shower this winter, and your body will thank you.



Switch on a humidifier in the colder months to help retain moisture and reduce static in hair and clothing.
