Hot’n’Cold is the weather and damaged is now my hair
We all know that weather can damage the skin. Cold weather is the worst for it. But also for your hair. It thins it and makes it look damaged fast enough. Especially in the winter time. So November and December might be the worst time to change your hair color, but the best time to style it and make it look better and shinier.
So I’ve gathered some tips and tricks for this cold season in order to make your hair looks wonderful than ever.
When it comes to cold weather, hair should always be dry (I mean like not wet) and protected.
1. Always use a moisturizing shampoo, conditioner and a mask. Even if your hair is regularly oily. Because the heat from interiors will make your hair look very damaged after the periodical hot/cold shock .
2. Never get out of the house without a scarf around your head, and try if you can to use a hat. This will protect your hair from the harshness of the winter jacket, and will negate the static charge normally generated in the winter.
3. And get tons of fabric softener for your jumpers and knits. Don’t let your beautiful hair look like its out of control because of the wool.
Cold weather equals shiny hair
My hair has its periods. Sometimes it’s shiny sometimes it isn’t, like yours too, but this season I have found some miracle methods to make it look brighter and healthier than ever and yes, I do get trims and use treatments.
But nevertheless I use some other methods regularly too
– Use a simple mask every time you take a bath. You can do it! I suggest taking it slow with a natural mask with keratin and of course parabenes free and do not hope for a miracle from the first use.
– Vinegar does some miracles too! Yes I am talking about the condiment that maybe you use it for a salad dressing. This can be helpful on dull hair. Just rinse your hair before applying conditioner and don’t be such a brat because of the smell of vinegar, your hair will thank you. Really!!
– ALWAYS rinse your hair off with cold water, this helps close the hair cuticle and makes it look shinier.
– And maybe you should straight your hair without a flat iron. Instead just use a smooth brush and your old hair dryer. Take it slow, be thorough and patient and please do not try to fasten the process, it wont be the happiest result.
– And the last tip is to use shiny booster treatments and oils for damaged hair. I really love using them after a fresh dye. My hair looks amazing and very supple.
If your shiny hair isn’t the problem, maybe you have some other issues like the lack of volume or dryness because of the cold weather I mentioned before, or just it seems to deteriorate because of hormonal problems like i used to.
I want to tell you that these hormonal issues can be the problem and I feel I need to talk a bit about them.
Firstly, I know how it it’s like to have a pile of hair collected from my drain every time I take a shower. It feels not normal at all. In fact weather changes can do that, to us, women. It’s not really a problem, but if persists just get an appointment to your physician, because a hormonal disorder can do that too.
A good Blowout is what every women needs
Most of the times women just crave for a Blowout. Yes, it’s like an WOW factor we crave for. Mostly because of the TV commercials we’re overflowed with. Yes, men look at us, and yes, we get lots of smiles and other things for free.
And I tell you, it’s not that hard to do it at home. Just use your hair dryer and have a little patience..again!
You should also use a dry shampoo every time you think the hair looks a little flat for a fresh scent, if not the fresh look. I tend to get a reminder in my schedule to look at it and fix it quickly.
Another little trick I use to make my blowout last is to not touch it. Oils from the skin can flatten it and make it dull.
And another one is to put my hair in a loose pony tail. It helps it to stay dry. Ans it doesn’t flatten the hair at all. The blow lasts!
So here you have the best ways to make your hair look gorgeous in the cold season. Just need a little skill and patience. Try ease it up with some help from a friend and dry it down when you get out! It’s not cool to get a cold near the holidays!
