How to take care of your hair in winter

In winter, the condition of the hair changes: it becomes dry, brittle, loses its shine and colour saturation. It may be challenging to keep even healthy hair looking good during the cold season. This article discusses some pieces of advice on taking care of the locks in winter to maintain their beauty.

There are some key tips to looking after your hair

● Do not use a deep cleansing shampoo. It washes away dust, dirt, and a natural protective layer. The scalp and locks remain vulnerable.

● Use thick conditioners from Nivea or other brands available in the MAKEUP online store.

● Apply nourishing and moisturising masks at least once a week.

● Use leave-in products and hair antistatics. They reduce electrification, facilitate combing, give hair shine and tame frizz.

● Dry with a hairdryer at a low temperature. It's better than leaving your curls to dry naturally. Hair does not like moisture, and it is better not to keep it wet for a long time. In winter, it will not dry out soon, and if there is a choice between going to bed with damp locks or drying them with a hairdryer, it is better to prefer the second option.

● Do not wash your hair with hot water. This is an all-season rule, but it is especially crucial in winter. High temperature stimulates sebum production, clogs pores, and hair gets oily quickly.

● Wear a hat. The blood vessels constrict from the cold, and the body begins to secrete more sebum to prevent hypothermia. The layer of subcutaneous tissue increases and inhibits blood circulation. The hair does not receive sufficient nutrition and dies. It falls out, and a subcutaneous fat layer does not allow a new one to break through. Choose a hat made of natural materials and remove it indoors so that the head does not sweat. Synthetics do not allow air to circulate and create a greenhouse effect.

Winter hair care components

To comfortably survive the winter, hair needs moisture, enhanced nutrition, and products that seal the structure and reduce static voltage. Here are some components to include in your winter hair care:

● Collagen. The collagen production slows down with age, and the hair begins to fade. Add the stress from temperature fluctuations, and the hairstyle starts suffering a collapse. For the hair to remain strong and beautiful longer, it requires additional nutrition with collagen.

● Panthenol. It wraps the hair with a weightless film, protects from dryness, and does not weigh the locks down.

● Vitamin E. It nourishes and strengthens the follicles, stimulates growth, heals the scalp, fights dandruff, improves blood circulation, and delivers nutrients directly to the follicles.

● Chitosan. This product is found in the shells of crustaceans and the outer skeleton of plankton and corals. It serves as a strengthening element for living organisms and gives elasticity and strength to hair. It also restores hydro balance, relieves static stress, and adds shine to hair. The locks are less electrified and easier to comb.

● Hyaluronic acid. It penetrates the deep layers of the skin, saturating the follicles with moisture. Hyaluronic acid is produced by the body less and less with age. Therefore, over time, it is recommended to take it additionally as part of care products and food supplements.

● Wheat proteins. They have a similar composition to the hair and skin proteins. They fill voids and irregularities, restoring the damaged structure. They envelop the curls with a weightless film that maintains water balance and protects the hair from drying. Wheat proteins thicken the structure, increase density, elasticity, and relieve static voltage. Curls behave obediently and look well-groomed.

Hopefully, these pieces of advice will help you keep your locks looking beautiful and healthy throughout the cold season.
