Silky, glossy hair is the hottest thing right now but the temperature is really not, which means Maintaining a good mane is a hell much more difficult. Cooler climate, dry air and increased indoor heat can dry our hair, due to the fact that our hair is hygroscopic. Hygroscope-what? This means that our hair matches the moisture content in its environment, so if the air is dry, your hair will be as well. Your hair will actually expel moisture until it matches the environment so it can be dehydrated which makes it more prone to breakage and damage.
But winter does not mean wrinkling, brittle hair; You just need to customize your hair routine to compensate for lack of moisture. Here are our top tips to keep your thirsty hair looking flawless.
1. Pay attention to your hairbrush
Many people underestimate how effective a hairbrush may be on your husband, but we are here to set the record straight – that's important. Depending on your hair type, choose a brush that does not damage the outer shroud: We love a brush that has soft plastic or bear brushes with a padded base, like the cult classic Mason Pearson Brush (check this post to find its $ 20 duper). And always remember to brush your hair from the top and gradually work upwards, as it will create less friction on the hollow shaft. Check out this post to find the correct brush for your hair type.

2. Take care when you towel dryers
As much as we love to sit around in a bathrobe with our hair wrapped in a towel, living our #bestlife, it can actually prevent your hair play. If you twist your men in your towel, you will call the hair follicles, potentially causing damage. The best way to wipe your hair is to gently push your hair with a soft towel or an old t-shirt, blow it with the hairdryer on the cool and let it air dry. You should also never tie your hair when it is wet or damp because wet hair is heavier, so again you will create tension that can lead to crimes.
3. Stack up on the drying plate
It sounds crazy, but drying the bed is the easiest way to tame the escape routes and get rid of frizz while on the move. As you slide them over the hair in the hair follicle direction, the positive charge of the tumblers will neutralize any static in your hair which makes it super smooth. As we said, they are a bag essential.
4. Use a heat-resistant spray
In an attempt to avoid flu, we always learn to never leave the house with wet hair (which VAT is myth), but that means we are more likely to blow our hair and expose it to heat damage on a daily basis. This means that it is important to protect your hair with heaters. Just think of it as a sunscreen for your hair, the spray protects your hair from damage and helps the hair to retain its natural oils and thus the natural shine. We use TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray, $ 7 each time we expose our hair to warmth, as it contains keratin proteins and marula oil that protects your hair, ticks frizz and increases shine. If you have an hour before leaving the house, IGK No More Blow is our savior because it increases the air drying time by 46%, read the full review here.
5. Limit heat exposure
There is nothing better than jumping from an ice-cold bathroom to a steam shower, but long hot showers are another sinner for dry damaged hair. Extreme heat will remove the hair from the natural oils that keep it soft and shiny, so try and reduce heat exposure as much as possible. As hard as it can be, finish the shower with a quick blast of cold water on the hair, as this releases hair in the hair, so it's less likely that it's frizz and more likely to get shiny.
6. Make regular hair masks
In winter there is a chance that you will stay with a bowl of ice cream and Netflix, which is the perfect opportunity to make a DIY hair mask. We like to make a weekly mask to nourish our thirsty hair and feed it with antioxidants, minerals and vitamins. Check out our three favorite DIY hair rifles here.
Our fave hair rescue mask:
This mask also restores the most damaged, brittle hair. It contains essential fatty acids as well as omega-3, which enhances the hair follicle to protect against future injuries. Coconut oil has high levels of lauric acid, which increases growth as it supports hormone levels and cellular growth.
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons argan oil (supplement with olive oil or canola about argan is not available)
2 drops of peppermint essential oil or lavender oil
Combine the ingredients and whisk until they are well mixed. Apply the mask evenly over damp, dirty hair (think of the towel-dried texture), pay attention to the ends of your hair. Then shampoo and condition as usual.
