The cold weather can give anyone serious bad hair days. It can make your hair dry and brittle, forcing women to put their hair up in ponytails or buns (even when you really want to let your hair down).

Fight your hair woes this winter by making sure that your mane is in perfect shape, especially during the holidays. Here are some tips on how you can prep your hair for the ice-cold weather:

Boost Your Hair’s Moisture Level

No one wants frizzy hair. Balanced moisture in the inner structure of the hair strand is necessary to achieve this. When the hair shaft has the right amount of moisture, even the harsh winter cannot cause your hair strands to frizz. So how do you achieve that perfect moisture balance? The first thing you need to do is repair any damage from previous hair processing like coloring, perming, and more. You can try shampoo and conditioner that can bring proteins deep into the hair shaft instead of just piling them on top.

Address Your Limp Locks

Dry winter air can leave your hair lying flat against your scalp. If you want your favourite hairstyle to last the whole day (or night!) you should find and use products with style memory. If you love wearing hats during the cold season, using a style memory spray can help you avoid deflated hair.

Nourish Your Hair with Natural Oils

Very few things can beat natural oils when it comes to nourishing hair and giving it that salon-worthy shine. You can try argan oil, almond oil, or good old VCO and see what suits you best.

Finish with a Cold Rinse

We know it’s the last thing you want to do, but a final shot of cold water when you wash your hair is really worth it. It helps minimize frizz and make your hair shinier.

Eat Your Way to Stronger and More Beautiful Hair

Load up on food rich in vitamins and healthy fats. Avocado is a good choice as this superfood has biotin or what’s known as the hair growth vitamin, as well as vitamins A, C, D, E, K, and the B vitamins.

Skip the Usual Heat Styling

You want to avoid dehydrating your hair before and after the holiday season. Lessen your use of hot tools like straighteners and curlers. If you have to, make sure you apply products that are meant to protect your hair first. If you want to make your hair look fuller and more stylish, you can always wear your La Crowne Clip & Go!

Almost all of us dread winter for the troubles it brings to our hair, but that doesn’t mean we can’t beat it, right? Just follow these tips and you’ll realize you don’t always have to hide your hair under a hat!
