8 Top Winter Hair Care Tips For Healthy Locks

Eat and drink wisely

Eat monounsaturated fats for healthy locks from the inside out. Eat extra fish, almonds, flax seed, sardines, avocados, and olive oil. 

Don t go outside with wet hair

As you may have heard, cold hair and freezing temperatures cause frozen hair. Split ends and breakage result from frozen hair. 

Cover up

Try a hat, scarf, and gloves made of non-hair-grabbing fibers. These will keep your hair warm and your body healthy in cold weather.

Coat your hair with healthy oils before shampooing

Consider it pre-conditioning (don't skip your conditioner!). To restore scalp oils and minimize static, massage Vitamin E, olive, coconut, or tea tree oil.

Use a moisturizing shampoo

Use a hydrating shampoo or one for really dry, flaky scalps. We adore Aveda hair products.

Wash your hair less often

Try every other day if you shampoo daily. If you shampoo two or three times a week, space out your washes to retain moisture.

Take cooler, quicker showers

There's nothing like a hot shower on a cold day, but it will dry up your hair and skin. Warm or lukewarm showers for 10 minutes or less.

Get a professional deep conditioning

Monthly professional deep conditioning treatments improve hair vibrancy. Try homemade leave-in conditioner between visits.
