Protect Your Hair Through Winter in Perth
Winter is coming! How can you protect your hair through Winter in Perth?
When it comes to hair health, prevention is key. You can replace lost moisture in hair but you can’t usually fix damage.
What’s the difference you ask?
Hair is made up of two main things that you need to worry about, moisture and strength.
Moisture is kinda obvious right? Keep your hair well looked after with the right techniques and great products and this should sort out moisture.
This is where we always advise what we refer to as the foundation products. Foundation products are what you NEED for your hair. A good quality shampoo, conditioner AND a leave in conditioner or hair moisturiser (they’re the same thing, just different names).
Strength is different, although completely linked with moisture for hair health. You have to look after both aspects.
Strength is how strong your hair is, how are the bonds in your hair holding up to all that you throw at it? Things that affect the strength of your hair are over use of hot tools and too much colouring leading to sensitisation.
OK now that you understand the basics, let’s get back to the question at hand…
How can you protect your hair through Winter in Perth?
Concentrate during the cooler months on moisture. If you can keep that under control, then you should have fabulous hair ready for next summer.
Here’s some steps to help you through
- Cool your shower slightly just for the hair part, then turn it back up and sear your skin till you’re pink!
- Treat your hair once every 1-2 weeks depending on how frequently you shampoo your hair
- Try and cut down on hot tool use, every time you don’t pick them up, your hair will thank you.
- Great foundation products, shampoo, conditioner and leave in moisturiser/conditioner
- Get regular trims even if you’re growing it, 6-10 week between visits, max!
Good luck and remember that your hair is the piece of clothing you never take off!
