Winter will be here before we know it! Winter brings cold, dry weather. This change in seasons can make your hair prone to static, dry it out, or create split ends. Luckily, there are some ways to prevent this from happening. Get prepared for the harsh weather conditions by following these tips!

  1. Don’t go outside with wet hair. Cold air causes your hair shafts to expand, making it more prone to breakage. It is important to always let your hair dry completely before stepping out in freezing weather. It is best to avoid using heat on your hair throughout the winter months but, if you’re crunched for time, blow dry your hair completely before going outside. When you must use heat tools, always use a protecting heat spray by Oribe hair. 
  2. Get regular trims. Whether your hair is long or short, winter weather can make the ends of your hair brittle. Dry hair is more prone to breakage and split ends if not regularly trimmed. To prevent this, we recommend scheduling a trim at your local hair salon every six weeks. Your local hair stylist should be able to provide you with product recommendations to keep your hair healthy between cuts, even in harsh weather conditions. We love Oribe hair care for hydrating options!
  3. Protect your hair against the elements. You should always wear a hat when you go outside in wintery weather, but not just any hat! Most hats are made of polyester that can cause friction that will lead to damage. Cotton caps whisk out any moisture in your hair, leaving it dry and lifeless. The local hairdressers at Razberri’s recommend a silk-lined hat or wearing a silk bonnet underneath a favorite cap you already own!
