Tips for Taming Winter Hair

How to eliminate frizz this winter with Actsyl

Now that winter is in full swing, you may have noticed some significant changes to the look and feel of your hair. It may feel dry or frizzy, it may be difficult to tame - you may even feel like chopping your hair off!

It is easy to think that hair has a break from the frizz-causing summer humidity during the cold winter months, but the impact that cold air has on hair creates other potential problems. The weather, regardless of the season, impacts hair year-round, so you need to be caring for your hair year-round. Before you reach for the kitchen scissors, read our advice on preventing dull winter hair.

What causes dull, frizzy hair

Cold, Dry Air

Cold air generally contains less moisture than hot air, limiting the amount of moisture your desperately needs. Dry hair often leads to brittle hair, which can cause hair breakage along with static buildup leading to frizz and flyaways. Unfortunately, the heat we use during the winter to keep us warm, like car heaters, is a dry heat that sucks the moisture out of your hair.

Styling Habit

The winter months are filled with holiday parties and more social gatherings, and hair strength is put to the test. The amount of blow drying and styling can increase during this time for some, and you need to be aware of the products you are using. To eliminate frizz, remove any products from your routine with high alcohol content, like hairsprays. Look for lighter products that include oils and essential amino acids that help hair maintain hydration and shed excess static. Also consider using a metal bristle brush, as the metal will help remove the static charge from hair leading to less frizz and fewer flyaways.

How to deal with it

Deep Conditioning

Since you are losing moisture during winter, an easy way to make up for the lost moisture is with deep conditioning. By setting aside 15 to 20 minutes a week to give your hair a deep conditioning treatment, you will be on the right track for beautiful, moisturized hair and a non-itchy scalp this spring. We recommend adding Actsyl-3 Advanced Treatment Conditioner to your deep conditioning routine. The oils in Actsyl-3 help to restore and maintain essential hydration needed to keep hair soft, shiny and static-free.

Give Your Hair a Break 

Make it part of your hair health routine to give your hair a rest from styling products and hairdos and try something new. This gives your precious strands a chance to recover and grow. Also try using softer materials for hair ties, like a scrunchie. Substitute the slicked-back bun for a loose half-up look. Another easy way to eliminate frizz is sleeping with a silk pillowcase or wrapping your hair in a silk bonnet. Silk reduces friction that occurs while tossing and turning during sleep – less friction equals less static buildup.

How Actsyl can help

It is important to find well-formulated products that are designed to replace and maintain the moisture hair requires during the winter months.
