Best Winter Hair Tips





Cold icy weather and chilly winter temperatures can wreak havoc on the health of your hair, drawing out precious moisture and leaving your locks dry, frizzy, and brittle.  Rhonda Johnson, owner of Crowning Glory Salon, offers fabulous winter hair tips from her Woodstock hair salon.    No need to wait until spring to have healthy hair again!  Follow the tips below to keep your hair soft and hydrated through winter’s harshest chills.   

TIP #1:
Combat frizz and add additional moisture to your hair by using a smoothing serum such as Kenra's Silkening Gloss. The serum can be applied to your hair after towel drying so that your hair can absorb it more easily.  This product can also be applied to the hair before flat ironing, which will add shine, smooth hair, and protect it from damage.

TIP #2:
Try to keep heat styling to a minimum.  Blow dryers, flat irons, curling irons, and other heat styling tools can dry your hair and cause damage to the hair cuticle.  If you do blow dry your hair, use the warm setting instead of high heat.  Keep the blow dryer moving as you use it so that it does not concentrate heat on a particular spot for too long.  When possible, air dry your hair instead of blow drying.  Never use a flat iron or curling iron on damp or wet hair as this can cause damage to your hair. A heat protecting spray or serum can also help to seal the cuticle of your hair and protect it from heat styling damage.

TIP #3:
Use warm water for shampooing instead of steaming hot.  Hot water can dry your hair and also cause scalp irritation.  When possible, even use cool water to rinse your hair after a shampoo.   A cool water rinse helps to close the hair cuticle, which keeps hair smoother and adds shine.  If you have color-treated hair, rinsing your hair in cool water has an added benefit of keeping your hair color from fading as quickly.  The more your hair is shampooed and rinsed with hot water, the more the hair cuticle is opened allowing color to wash out.



TIP #4
Use a high quality shampoo & conditioner such as Color Wow's Color Security Shampoo and Conditioner.  Both of these product lines will help to add moisture and conditioning ingredients into your hair without causing buildup.  An amazing leave-in product can also have positive benefits.  Color Wow's Dream Coat Supernatural Spray or for curly hair is a lightwight leave-in that has virtually no smell and leaves hair soft and silky without the crunchy feel for curls. For straight hair, Dream Coat adds shine and unbelievable manageability, which lasts up to 3-4 shampoos.

A quality, deep conditioning treatment from the salon can also help replenish your hair with the moisture it craves.  Keratin Complex Vanilla Bean Deep Conditioning treatment contains ingredients that will add moisture, manageability, and intense conditioning to your hair while repairing damage.  The results are soft, hydrated, shiny, and healthy hair.  A Shades EQ glaze can also provide outstanding conditioning agents and shine to the hair.
