Thinking about ways to protect your hair from the damage that the winter elements can cause? If so, you will want to consider these 5 tips for protecting your hair in the winter months.
Deep Conditioning Treatment
During the winter months, it’s a great idea to treat your hair once a week to a deep conditioning treatment. This will help to replenish the moisture, which tends to get depleted from things such as the dry heat in your apartment and the cold winter air. I recommend something like the Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Moisture Lock One Minute Mask or Bumble & Bumble Quenching Masque. These products are quick and easy ways to lock moisture back into your hair.

Protect Your Hair Outside
Whenever you are stepping outside in the cold, keep your head/hair covered. If you’re using a knit cap to cover your head, wrap a silk scarf on your hair first. This will provide a protective barrier from your hat and an extra layer against the elements. Use hats with a satin or silk lining wool, cotton and other fibers not only absorb moisture but also rub on the hair strands, which can be damaging. Hoods are also a great option.

Cover Your Hair at Night
Some people wear satin wraps or bonnets to prevent friction with the hair and pillowcase; others sleep with a satin pillowcase. However during the winter the air is colder at night, covering your hair at night will help keep the moisture in, if you want to you could try covering your hair with two satin scarves or bonnets.

Avoid Taking Hot Showers
Avoid taking hot showers or washing your hair in hot water. Use warm or cool water instead. That way the heat won’t dry out and/or damage your hair and skin. Source: http://www.beinggirl.com/article/winter-hair/
Use Argan Oil
Argan Oil is a great product to use during cold spells as they moisturize the hair instantly. Make sure the oil is not too heavy for your hair type. Ask your hair stylist who can recommend a light version. Source: http://www.hellomagazine.com/healthandbeauty/hair/2013120916051/top-winter-hair-care-tips/
