It’s that season again, where the days are short and the nights are long. The weather change means that your hair will change too. It’s important to nourish and hydrate your hair, especially if you’re colouring it. Here are 6 hair care tips to remember for winter hair, so that you don’t get stuck in a rut this winter.
1. Trim your hair regularly
It’s easy to neglect your hair routine because you’re just too cold to do anything. You want to wake up in the morning and get dressed, and then get into your pyjamas as soon as you get home. Sound about right? Despite how lazy you are, give your winter hair the TLC it needs. Trim your hair to protect it against split edges to keep it growing beautifully. Treat your hair like royalty, even in the middle of the coldest day of the year.
2. Don’t wash your hair with hot water
If you’ve tried Renew Intense Naturals, keep it vibrant by not washing it with hot water. Rather wash it with lukewarm water. This will help your scalp retain its natural oils and keep your hair moisturised.
Turn the tap to lukewarm when washing your hair.
3. Leave the home with dry hair
Wet hair might be the in thing, but frozen hair isn’t. The change of temperature means that your hair may not dry as quickly as it would have in the warmer seasons. Leaving the house with wet hair is most likely to leave you with brittle hair that could break off – not a good look.
Don’t freeze your locks off.
4. Keep your hair moisturised
Be good to your hair by investing in a quality shampoo and conditioner. Ensure that it’s infused with essential oils to keep your hair moisturised. The air is drier in winter, so your hair is more likely to dehydrate.
You’ll be happy to know that the Renew Intense Naturals range is infused with three oils; Baobab Oil, Palm Oil and Brazil Nut Oil. Baobab Oil is known for its replenishing, nourishing and moisturising abilities. Palm oil is rich in Vitamin E, which is famous for protecting hair. Brazil Nut oil is known for its smoothing effect. It’s clear to see that your winter hair will be nourished with a natural-looking colour, from the root to tip.
5. Go easy on the heat
The frizz may be getting you, but if you can, try to stay away from the hair iron and dryer. Heat dries out your hair and compromises its health. Keep your hair at its optimum level by not straightening it as often as you usually would.
Let the frizz be.
6. Protect your hair against the harsh weather
Come rain, shine or snow, your hair doesn’t have to get the brunt of it. Cover up by accessorising with a hat or beanie. Just remember that if you’re going to tie your hair up, don’t tie it too tightly. Good circulation in your scalp promotes better hair growth.
If you’re rocking a beanie or hat, wear a silk scarf to protect your hair.
Now that you know the dos and don’ts of caring for your hair this winter, go for a colour that nourishes. The Renew Intense Naturals range gives you that natural-looking colour with 100% grey coverage. Look forward to a deep, rich hair colour that’s also ammonia-free.
