There's no doubt that the onset of cooler temperatures and fewer hours of sunlight bring with them a new set of hair demands. As well as the bitter temperatures outside, central heating and other heated appliances are just as detrimental to our hair.  The lack of moisture in the air both indoors and outdoors can leave ends dry, brittle and difficult to manage. Luckily, there’s plenty of time to treat your hair ahead of the cold snap.   

Tidying up your hair prior to the bitter winter conditions is extremely beneficial. Head to your nearest Sassoon Salon for a trim and deep conditioning treatment to give your hair the TLC it deserves and by following the below simple tips from Sassoon UK Creative Director Bruce Masefield, your hair will look as it should throughout winter……luscious, glossy and healthy. 

1. Avoid shampooing hair in hot water. Instead use warm or cool water as the heat can damage and dry hair plus rinsing in cold water adds extra shine whilst locking in vital moisture which hair lacks during the winter season. 

2. Keep hair well-conditioned throughout winter months and use a treatment such as Sassoon Professional Intense Restore weekly in addition to your regular conditioner as it’s vital to replenish and retain moisture. If possible, visit a Sassoon Salon on a monthly basis throughout the winter time for a super moisturising and revitalising treatment to keep your hair looking radiant and healthy.

3. Before blow-drying use a heat protector such as Sassoon Professional Halo Hydrate and apply a serum such as Sassoon Professional Diamond Polish before using straightening irons. Both products will protect the hair from the heat as well as shielding hair from the harsh winter elements. 

4. Don’t go outside with wet hair as it will become susceptible to breakage. Ensure your hair is dry thoroughly before facing the cold weather. 

Make sure you keep these hair tips at the forefront of your mind during the winter season if you want manageable hair that whispers effortless shine.
