How To Avoid Hair Breakage This Winter

We all know that the late fall and winter usher in colder dryer air, and that the lack of moisture in our homes and offices can wreak havoc on your carefully coiffed hairstyles. Let us help maintain your natural moisture when the gales of November start blowing, and you can avoid the dreaded dehydrated winter look for your hair. 

Trim Your Hair Often

Healthy hair is happy hair. And whether the weather is cold or hot, if your hair is freshly trimmed it will naturally look and feel better. Getting rid of the split ends will keep your hair from looking frizzy and flyaway as the winds begin to blow. Have your stylist use Protective Prep and Primer, which gives your hair a nice even template for a great cut.

Use A Humidifier

As you turn on the heat in your house, the air will become drier and will leech the moisture from your hair. But if you use a humidifier in the late fall and winter months, you will be able to counteract the lack of moisture in the air. Add an essential oil to your humidifier to brighten the mood of the late fall darkness.

Go Easy On The Heat

When the air is dry and cold, overdoing it on heat tools will make your hair more damaged and brittle. Experts advise staying away from curlers and straighteners as much as possible, and this is a great time to experiment with braids and other hairstyles that do not require a blowout.

If you do need to dry your hair for a big meeting or a fun family event, consider the 2000 Salon Pro Hair Dryer so that you can at least cut down on the time used to heat your hair. With its high-velocity AC motor that cuts the drying time in half, the Salon Pro will give you the perfect blowout every time but will take it easy on your hair.

Condition Carefully

With two parts of silk protein and one part hydrolyzed silk, this luxurious conditioning treatment will keep your hair moisturized even in the coldest of winter winds. With its weightless formula, Satin Finish Conditioning Treatment will smooth, condition, and leave your hair frizz-free.

The beauty of this formula is that you can also use it to moisturize your skin when the gales of November start to blow.

Wear A Hat Outside

Although the thought of wearing a hat might terrify some, this is the best way to protect your hair from harsh cold air and swirling winds when you are outside. If you choose a hat with a silk or satin lining, this will give you the best result in terms of not experiencing breakage, because a wool lining will cause more pulling and breaking. 

Use Quality Products

As the old saying goes, you get what you pay for, and this is especially true for hair care products. During the harsh, cold winter months, using store brand products is especially hard on your hair, as they can contain harsh chemicals that strip your hair of its natural moisture at an already-precarious time.

FHI Heat has set you up for success as far as products go, and we use only top-quality ingredients to get you the products and look you deserve. There are several categories of products that will help as the weather cools down. If you need some deep condition treatments in the cold fall months, try our Serums and Treatments, which will replenish and re-moisturize what is lost with the dry air.

If you have to use heating tools in the winter, you absolutely MUST use our Hair Care Prep and Protectants in order to achieve the best possible results. Whether or not you use heat, once you get the perfect look, maximize your results with our Volumize and Style products, which will take your look to great heights even as the cold winds blow. Finally, try one of our variety of Finishers to hold your look in place. No matter which part of the process you are in with your hair, the FHI Heat products all work together to keep your hair hydrated, shiny, and healthy.

Eat A Balanced Diet

When you want to have moisturized, luxurious hair, you need to start from the inside out. By eating a healthy diet, you will be helping your hair to be moisturized, supple, and resilient. A balanced diet is high in zinc, iron, B vitamins, and Vitamin C will promote both healthy hair and skin and lock in moisture even in the winter months.

Gordon Lightfoot’s ballad is a stark reminder that the air is about to turn colder and drier, and the northern winds are about to blow. But with a few easy tricks and a plethora of FHI Heat products, you will be able to maintain your moisturized, flexible, and beautiful hair well into the winter months.
