There’s no doubt that winter brings drying conditions for our hair. Cold weather and central heating can cause our follicles to break more often, turn brittle and lose sheen.
So we tapped into the brains of hair experts to get their top tips for surviving our winter hair woes. Here are the winter hair fixes you need to know…
Switch to a moisturizing shampoo as dry, straw-like hair is a common problem during the winter. The result of cold, windy weather, low humidity and extreme temperature changes are exacerbated by central heating and often cause hair to dry out.
‘Avoid shampoos that contain sulphate as they can strip the hair color and will leave your hair looking dull. A sulphate-free shampoo will ensure that your color lasts all winter long’ says Lisa de-la-Plain, Professional Beauty Therapist and Co-Founder of Beauty Flash.
Balmain’s Moisturizing Care Box is perfect for limp and dry, winter hair. The formulation contains pure organic argan oil, which has an abundance of antioxidants and vitamins A, C and E to help nourish and hydrate your hair back to life.

In Winter you may be tempted to turn up your heat in the shower or use your hair dryer more often, but overheating your hair is the main cause of dehydrated locks.
Expert hair stylist and salon owner, Limoz Logli, says, ‘Never apply heat to your hair without a thermal protector and try washing your hair in lukewarm water, if you can really brave it, blast with cold water for the last 30 seconds to help seal the hair cuticles’ and help retain its moisture.
Argan Oil is a great product to use during cold spells as it moisturizes the hair instantaneously. ‘Make sure the oil is not too heavy for your hair type. Ask your hair stylist who can recommend a light version’, says Lisa de-la-Plain, Professional Beauty Therapist and Co-Founder of Beauty Flash. We recommend Kahina Giving Beauty Argan Oil, which is 100% organically farmed and acts as a beauty multi-tasker for your hair, skin and as a luxury bath product.

Taking care of your hair in winter is just as important as looking after your skin. So for healthy, shiny tresses make sure to indulge in regular treatments to help replenish your hair’s moisture.
‘To stop your hair from looking dull, treat your tresses to a deep moisturizing mask at least once a week, Kerastase Masque Therapiste is a fab one to try’ says Logli. For added hydration, go one step further and follow with a leave in conditioner, like Kerastase Nectar Thermique.’
The last thing you want to do on a chilly morning is style wet hair, so why not prep your strands overnight? This way you can save time and wake up with perfect, frizz-free hair.
‘To achieve a messy wave look, braid your hair into a regular plait (you can do more plaits to achieve a tighter wave.) Twist the braids to the top of your head, pin and sleep.
‘The following morning you can release the braids and brush out with your fingers using Kerastase Serum Therapiste,’ says Logli.
For a more bouncy curl look, tip your head upside down twist the hair until it’s tight enough to twist into a bun, pin and sleep.
If your hair is bombarded by a continuous onslaught of blow drying, curling and straightening, not to mention colouring and generally anointing your tresses with chemical substances, it might be time to consider giving it a little extra nourishment.
By eating plenty of vitamins, minerals and proteins your hair will become more stronger and more vibrant. We got chatting to A.Vogel’s nutritional therapist, Alison Cullen to tell us everything we need to know about nourishing foods that feed our hair.
Buck up your diet with hair-supportive nutrients: Here’s what to eat…
- For extra protein: soy, eggs, fish, beans and brewer’s yeast (found in most fermented and baked goods)
- For extra iron: dried fruits, cherries, whole grain cereals, dark green leafy vegetables, eggs, dates and raisins
- For extra zinc: pumpkin seeds, oats, adzuki beans and eggs
- B vitamins: brewer’s yeast, wheatgerm and lecithin
- Healthy fats: Foods like avocados, nuts and seeds contain healthy, useful fats.
- If your hair frustrates you by growing very slowly, try a supplement like A.Vogel Urticalcin which can help maintain healthy hair and nails.
- If you want to try revitalizing your hair with a DIY hair mask, blend avocado and honey together. Massage the masque into your scalp and leave for a half an hour. Wash as normal. The result is sleek, shiny, hydrated hair.
- Protect hair from over-styling by using a heat protector and a good quality styler. The heat protector ‘must protect to at least 210 degrees’ says de-la-Plain. As for heating appliances, she recommends the GHD Platinum Styler which has patented tri-zone technology, helping to reduce hair breakage by over 50% and increases shine by 20%.

During the winter months, cold outside weather combined with dry indoor heat can wreak havoc on your strands, leading to split ends and breakage. That’s right: Breakage isn’t just a summertime sadness. It happens in winter, and to all manner of hair types. In order to have a fabulous mane all year long, there are a few precautions you should take throughout the year. SELF reached out to four top experts in the field for how to prevent winter hair woes for every texture.
1. Shampoo less often to help with itchy, flaky scalp.
Plaques of skin can smother the scalp, not only causing itch and flakes, but smothering growth as well. Jon Reyman, owner of Spoke & Weal Salons, recommends lightening up on the cleansing. “Shampoo a little less if you can. For those with flakes and more severe scalp issues, Aveda Scalp Remedy Dandruff Solution ($28; aveda.com) is great. It’s perfect even for oily or fine hair because it cleanses without weighing hair down.” Reyman also suggests watching your diet and managing stress as good solutions for scalp concerns.
2. Switch to an oil-based moisturizer to lock in extra moisture.
Blasts of dry air are not good for any type of hair. The only way to combat it: extra moisture. “Natural, curly, wavy, relaxed, and coiled hair is sensitive to cold weather, when it’s prone to brittle texture, breakage, and split ends,” explains Ron Williams, national educator for Phytospecific, who suggests using a heavier-than-usual oil-based moisturizer that will evaporate more slowly to protect textured hair.
3. Commit to weekly treatments to keep hair hydrated.
Dry air also means all hair textures should focus on weekly hair treatments to replace lost moisture. “Hair dries out in winter from not having enough moisture in the indoor air, which is when a good conditioner comes in handy,” advises James Corbett, owner of James Corbett Studio and global color consultant for Clairol, who recommends using the brand’s new color-specific Nice n’ Easy CC+ ColorSeal Conditioner ($5; drugstore.com). “Once a week, you should baby your hair: Slather conditioner on and take 30 minutes for the moisture to penetrate into the hair shaft.”
4. Use leave-in conditioner to combat static. Static hair little girlGetty Images/Flickr RF
Floating, fine strands are a common occurrence during winter, which Corbett says is a key sign of dryness. Corbett advises that, instead of the static guard/dryer sheet route, be sure hair is hydrated with regular conditioning, then lock it in with a leave-in conditioner.
5. Forgo platinum haircolor for a darker dye this winter.
According to Corbett, this might be a good time to dial down blonde ambition. “Anytime you can switch off is good. Platinum is awesome, but it’s so incredibly damaging for the hair.” He advises leaving the roots a little darker and applying a demipermanent hue until the weather is kinder. “That way, it washes out, and the process won’t be that detrimental when you’re ready to go back to platinum again.”
Williams also advises paring back on chemical straighteners. “Limit the amount of chemicals applied to the hair, which will improve moisture levels and decrease breakage. If not, use gentler products, and always see a professional for application.”
6. Cut down on your heat-heavy styling routine.
All that heat and dryness will result in split ends and breakage. Corbett advises avid use of heat protection, including leave-in conditioners, to prevent breakage. Try Klorane Leave-in Cream with Papyrus Milk ($16; sephora.com). Also try protective styles, such as braids, buns, twists, and ponytails, which give hair time off from the heat routine.
7. But never go outside with damp hair to bypass breakage.
Although time is of the essence in the morning, it’s critical to dry hair thoroughly before dashing into the cold. “Anything that’s cold expands, and that’s what can happen with your wet hair shaft in the cold weather, which puts you at risk for breakage and makes your color fade faster,” cautions Corbett. Take the time. Your hair—and your salon bill—will thank you later.

Along with the upsides of winter (Cozy layers, lit fireplaces, and hot cocoa with mini marshmallows, anyone?) come a few downsides, especially when it comes to your hair. (Can you hear the static in the air?) Don’t worry, though, there are ways to beat bad hair days when the weather is less than appealing. Here are some of the most common winter hair woes and how to fix them.

1. Straw-Like Strands
Much like with static hair, when the moisture levels in the air drops, your hair can tend to become dry and brittle and even feel a little like straw. This is especially true for curly-haired girls, since coiled hair is drier by nature.
The Fix: There are a few things that need to happen: (1) Chill on your hot tools usage and give you hair a break. (2) Implement more moisture into your hair care regimen with a hydrating shampoo, conditioner, and a mask with hydrating ingredients like coconut milk or argan oil. (3) Sleep on a silk or satin pillowcase, or use a satin-lined cap like this one to help retain any moisture you’re putting back into your hair. If your hair is still dry, apply a leave-in product onto your strands for extra hydration; for fine, straight hair, use Davine’s Dede Hair Mist, and for thicker, curly hair, use KMS California Curl Up Control Creme.
If you color your hair, colorist Aura Friedman at Sally Hershberger Salon in NYC suggests asking your colorist to apply Olaplex (a formula that strengthens broken bonds in your hair) onto your hair before dyeing it. She also recommended ordering a bottle for at-home use to saturate your strands before washing to keep your hair from becoming dry and to prevent breakage.
When temperatures dip, your hair picks up an electrical charge from the dry air, causing it to stand up, trichologist (aka hair doctor) Philip Kingsley says. And since it’s common in the chillier months because the air is less moist everywhere, you have to work extra hard to combat it.
The Fix: Keep as much moisture in your hair as possible so it’s less susceptible to the effects of dry air. That means switching to a more hydrating shampoo and conditioner that suits your hair type; using a tourmaline or ionic hair dryer, which won’t deplete your hair of its moisture like other regular dryers can; stashing a dryer sheet in your bag and lightly running it over your strands when you’re on the go; rubbing some hand cream in your palms and smoothing it over the staticky strands to calm them; and sleeping on a silk pillowcase (regardless of what your hair texture is, since cotton absorbs moisture and silk retains it).
3. Split Ends
The only way to really cure a case of split ends is to get a haircut, but there are ways to make them look better until you get to the salon.
The Fix: If you’re in a pinch and absolutely can’t wait for your stylist to snip your broom-like ends, you can twist your hair until the split ends pop out along the sides and trim them away. Otherwise, use a split end binding cream on your ends to fake the look of healthier hair. Nexxus makes one that actually helps repair the split by fusing it back to the strand with continued use.
4. Matted Hair
Chances are you know this strand sitch well: The moment you start wearing thicker collar jackets and scarves, the hair at the nape of your neck gets matted into a rat’s nest that basically looks like you rode a motorcycle sans helmet to wherever you’re going.
The Fix: Braid your hair to the back or side, or put your hair in a bun to keep all your strands contained and tangle-free. If you must wear your hair down, take the section of hair from your ears down and put it in a ponytail, leaving the rest of your hair over top of it. This will minimize the chances of any matting.
5. Dry, Itchy Scalp
Just like your skin gets dry in the winter from indoor heating and drier air, your scalp skin does too. And when it becomes dry, it’s likely to itch and even flake off.
The Fix: Friedman says to shampoo less (since they contain surfactants that clean your hair but can be drying), and instead use more moisturizing conditioners (Friedman suggests Plarmia Hair Serum Oil), cleansing conditioners, or by applying coconut oil on your scalp and massaging it in as a hair mask, then leaving it on for 10 minutes before rinsing it out. If your scalp is unbearably itchy, pat your head instead of scratching it, and talk to your doctor about using Scalpicin Scalp Itch Treatment to calm the itchy sensation.
6. Hat Hair
Hats are a must in the winter to keep you from freezing. But hats can absorb the moisture in your hair, leaving it dry and can also leave your style looking subpar.
The Fix: Since you aren’t going to stop wearing hats mid-winter, avoid the aftermath of hat head by using a leave-in conditioner on your hair to lock in moisture. Then, after you style your strands, make sure to wait until your hair cools (aka don’t put your hat on right after you’re done blow-drying it); if your hair is still warm and moldable when you put your hat on, it will be lifeless when you take it off. Finally, when you get to your destination, flip your hair upside down after you remove your hat to revive your hair. Since you waited until your style cooled, it will maintain its original shape.

We’ve battled dry scalp and now we’re here to help you fight winter’s double hair wrath—static and frizzy hair. If you’re prone to both (or either!), here’s our step-by-step guide for making these hair headaches a thing of the past. And to make it extra handy, we’ve compiled a pocket version of our trusty list with the key steps to combating frizzy, static hair.
Do A Conditioning Mask Once A Week
Be diligent about doing deep conditioning treatments once a week as frizz is a direct result of dry hair. Dry hair soaks up moisture in the air causing your strands to frizz . Deep conditioning for 10 minutes once a week, helps seal strands and prevent moisture from the air to seep in. This conditioning technique will fortify your hair with softness, smoothness, and manageability.
Try L’Oreal EverCreme Deep Nourishing Masque and Oribe Signature Masque.
Strategic Combing (For Dry and Wet Hair)
For Wet Hair: Use a plastic comb or your fingers when combing your strands. A plastic brush will eliminate tugging, tearing, pulling, and ripping. WE LIKE: The Wet Brush.
For Dry Hair: If it’s necessary to detangle your hair when its dry—avoid using a plastic brush or comb as it only makes hair static. A metal comb is better (it acts as a conductor) to help fight static. TRY THIS: Tifi Pro Titanium Carbon Infused Metal Comb
Dress Your Strands
To further prevent hair from acting like a sponge and soaking moisture in the air, dress your strands in a protective, soothing coat—regardless if your hair’s dry, curly, or straight. WE KEEP CALM WITH: Moroccanoil Frizz Control For All Hair Types FINISH WITH: Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Creme for added shine and smoothness.
Dry With Care
When drying hair with a towel, blot hair gently as you would your face—don’t twist or rub—as hair follicles can break and cause fly-aways. (Tip: Microfiber towels or a soft t-shirt are better alternatives as they cause less friction.) If you’re using a blow dryer, aim the nozzle down along the hair shaft to prevent frizz. Also, invest in an ionic, frizz-fighting blow dryer to lock out puff-inducing moisture on each strand. Try Conair Comfort Touch Tourmaline Cermaic Blow Dryer and Aquis Microfiber Hair Towels.
Cut Drying Time
Whenever possible, dry your roots on low heat and avoid drying hair tips to eliminate poof.
Sleep On It
We’ve personally discovered that drying our hair at night (either fully or slightly) and then sleeping on it, helps calm puffiness and frizz. Pro Tip: To preserve a blow-out, avoid tangles and eliminate frizz—place your hair in a high ponytail with a fabric scrunchie (yes, they’re back!). You’re hair will thank you in the morning!
Avoid Plastic Combs
As we mentioned above, the wrong kind of brush or comb can add friction to your hair. Opt for metal combs, as they reduce the amount of static present in your hair.
Rub Dryer Sheets On Your Hair
This is an oldie, but a goodie. Gently running dryer sheets over your strands or your brushes will work wonders to kill electric charges that have built up. Another cool trick: Rub a dryer sheet along your pillow before going to sleep.
Spray It Down
Weigh hair down with hair spray or a spray that’s designed to cut down on hair static
We like Oribe Cote d’Azur Hair Refresher or Tresemme Climate Control Spray.
How To Hydrate Your Hair In Winter & Banish Frizz When It’s Thirsty AF
In winter, the thirst is real. I’m not even talking about cuffing season. Your hair may become intensely frizzy due to plunging temperatures and dry, artificial heat. Or it might just feel like straw, snapping or breaking at any sign of friction. Either way, knowing how to hydrate your hair in winter is key.
My hair does not like any changes in weather. During the hot and humid summer months, it frizzes and falls flat. For the few short weeks during the pleasantly cool fall weather, my hair is slightly happier. It behaves for the most part, curling or straightening as I tell it to. But, when the fall air becomes a bit crisper, my hair gets crunchy just like the dead leaves under my feet. The frizz returns, but in a more manic, Albert-Einstein-esque fashion. If I don’t go out of my way to layer products on my hair, any and all heat styling is out of the question.
After years of intense research and dozens of product trials, I can honestly say I’ve learned to tame my frizz beast and give my hair the extra TLC it needs to thrive in the dry winter air. So if you’re feeling overwhelmed by the sheer amount of hair product choices out there, give these products a whirl to quench your strands’ thirst all season long.

IGK Low Key Cleansing Walnut Scalp Scrub
IGK Low Key Cleansing Walnut Scalp Scrub, $36, Sephora
The IGK Low Key Cleansing Walnut Scalp Scrub is a new favorite of mine. As the weather gets cooler, my scalp flakes and becomes overly sensitive. The apple cider vinegar and walnut shell powder exfoliate dead skin and shed product buildup while peppermint oil cools and rebalances my persnickety scalp. Though most scrubs can be stubborn and stick to the scalp, this one rinses out with ease. Use once or twice a week, just like any exfoliating scrub, and you’ll be glad you did.
Alterna Haircare Caviar Repair RX Instant Recovery Conditioner
Alterna Haircare Caviar Repair RX Instant Recovery Conditioner, $34, Sephora

It’s A 10

Sweater weather is here! As we snuggle in warm knitwear, tucking our feet in soft socks, are we forgetting something crucial? The winter season is here and that is most likely to result in frail, dehydrated hair and hair loss. But, these problems can be avoided with simple precautionary measures.
Here are 10 easy steps you can take to maintain your gorgeous locks this cold season:
Psst… Are you ready for a chemical-free hair care routine? Check out awesome products to keep your hair safe this winter season.
1. Keep shampooing to the minimum
Chemical shampoos are notorious for consuming essential natural oils from your scalp. And your hair is going to need all the oil it can get this winter season. First things first, switch to shampoos or shampoo bars that don’t have parabens or sulfates that exhaust all-natural oils from your scalp. Shampoo your hair only once or twice a week. And if you are prone to greasy hair (I understand the pain) and need to shampoo more often, then worry not as these all-natural shampoos will keep your scalp safe.
2. Oil ‘em before you wash ‘em
Oiling hair is a must in most Indian households. But this time, warm your hair oil and massage the scalp well. Leave it in overnight. Not only will the warm oil nourish your scalp but also give your hair a gorgeous smooth texture.
3. Never forget the conditioner
Your hair is going to need it the most during the cold days and freezing nights. Every time you shampoo this winter season, apply conditioner from the mid-length to the tips. Keep it on for a couple of minutes before washing it off. Pat dry your hair and voila! Frizz-free, silky soft hair!
If using only the conditioner is not working for you, try this deep conditioning hair mask. It has the goodness of amla, bhringraj, fenugreek, rosemary and hibiscus among other herbs and is sure to give your hair a new life!
4. Control the temperature this winter season
We know, we know. Hot showers are the best and especially in winters, they are irresistible. But the steaming hot water will strip all-natural oils from your scalp and skin. Take warm baths but avoid super hot showers.
5. No heat styling either
While we are on the topic of hot showers, don’t heat-style your hair either. Frequent blow-drying, straightening or curling damages your hair and make them brittle. While you need to control excessive styling all year round, winters make your hair especially vulnerable and so, you need to switch off the hair appliances.
Having said that, stepping outside the home with wet hair is also a bad idea. Pat hair with a soft towel and air dry them before heading out. Are you prone to frizzy hair? Worry not. We have natural solutions that actually work!
6. Keep dandruff away this winter season
Winter hats are in! Not only are they fashionable, but they’ll also protect your hair from pollution and dust that is likely to settle as the temperatures drop.
But with that, there’s also the chances of scalp sweat, itchy head and ugh, dandruff! How do you keep your scalp free from the flakes?
7. Not just your hair, you need to keep hydrated too!
It’s not just your hair that needs to stay hydrated this winter season. You need to too. Unlike summers, it’s easy to forget drinking water or juices in the cold months. But make it a point to stay hydrated because your dehydration will reflect on your hair too! Keep a bottle of water or juice on your desk and sip regularly.
