Looking after your hair and making sure it is in the best possible condition is an all year-round process. The warm weather in summer throws up certain challenges as do the colder months of the year. Here is some handy advice on how to keep your hair in great shape through the winter months.
Eat Your Way to Healthy Hair
A healthy and well-balanced diet can make all the difference when it comes to the condition of your hair and scalp. Try to make sure that you are eating protein rich foods such as eggs, along plenty of fruit and vegetables that contain vitamins and minerals. Spinach and broccoli, for example, contain iron which helps maintain the flow of oxygen to all parts of the body – citrus fruits will help absorb the iron and give you a Vitamin C boost.
Other foods that will help include nuts and seeds for Omega-3 and wholegrains as a source of biotin. For great looking hair during the winter months, eat well.
Hair Care Products
The sheer range of hair care products can be overwhelming, but choosing the right products plays an important role in helping you look great in winter. To save time and confusion try looking to Capital Hair & Beauty, where you will find everything you need all in one place.
A gentle shampoo used alongside oil treatments, that contain macadamia, will act as a great foundation that will help give your hair body and vitality. Depending on the type of hair you have, you may also look to a detangling spray or conditioning mist to increase manageability and reduce frizz.
Using three or four good quality products is all that it takes and anymore could lead to your hair looking overworked – it’s about choosing the best products for you, your lifestyle and hair type.
Show me the Honey
To lock in extra moisture, a weekly treatment using raw honey will give your hair that extra boost it needs through the cold months and beyond. Start by brushing your hair to stimulate the scalp and eliminate and tangles, then apply honey, tips to roots. Then leave for around half an hour before rinsing with warm water.
The ultimate way to pamper yourself through the winter and to revitalise your hair and scalp is to book yourself in for a head massage. This helps with blood circulation and foods the hair with nutrients, leaving you feeling great and your hair looking fantastic.
