Top 12 Tips for Avoiding Dry Hair This Winter

E0_(EN)

 

The seasonal change to winter usually brings up thoughts of brisk winds, freshly fallen snow, and holiday cheer — all wonderful things. One not so wonderful part of winter is the pain that it can inflict on our hair. Since the winter months can be really harsh on your locks you should have a different hair care routine when it’s cold. Dry hair can become an issue during the winter for those who don’t normally have to deal with it.

 

Even if you don’t live in an area where blistering winter winds are a problem, you could still benefit switching up your routine as temperatures begin to dip. No matter how low the thermostat drops where you are we have you covered. We’ve gathered our best tips to avoid dry hair and damage during the winter.

 

Winter Hair Care Tips

 

E1

 

  • Nutrition – avoid dry hair during the winter by making sure that you are feeding your hair from the inside. Fill up on protein rich foods or even better – add HAIRFINITY Healthy Hair Vitamins to your routine. They will give your hair a boost of vitamins and other good stuff you need to keep your hair beautiful even when all you want is to stay indoors.

E2

 

  • Keep it covered – covering your hair with a cute hat is a great first step at protecting hair from winter elements. Avoid “hat hair” and frizz by wrapping your hair with a silk scarf before you put on that beanie or wool cap.
  • Deep Condition – nothing restores hydration and fortifies your hair quite like deep conditioning. To avoid having dry hair during the winter up your deep conditionings to once a week (unless you’re there already). If you have dry hair try incorporating a protein treatment to keep your locks strong and healthy.

E3

 

  • Less washing – it may seem counter-intuitive to wash less and deep condition more, but too much washing could cause dry hair without you realizing it. However, using a gentle cleansing product, like Essentious Hair Care, will leave your hair clean without stripping much needed moisture. When you do wash your hair avoid hot water. Hot water will dry hair and make managing your hair during winter a little more difficult.
  • Trim it up – keeping your ends trimmed during harsh winter months is a great idea for maintaining health and growth. Avoid the need for a “new look” in spring because of months of damage and neglect.
  • Wet hair is a no no – Your mother has told you not to go outside with wet hair – winter is not the time to disobey. In places with below freezing temperatures wet hair could actually freeze and break off.

E4

 

  • Stay hydrated – your body needs hydration all the time no matter what the season. Keeping your insides properly hydrated is great for your hair as well.
  • Oil it – dry hair is a bummer, dry hair in the winter is a double bummer. Find a natural oil that will keep your strands moisturized without weighing them down.

E5

 

  • Skip on the heat – heated appliances can be very drying any time of year. If your goal is to not have excessively dry hair during the winter keep blow drying, flat ironing and other heated treatments to a minimum.
  • Avoid chemicals – chemically treating your hair is not a sin. During the winter chemical processes can be harsh especially if they are peroxide heavy. Pay close attention to the ingredients in your chemical treatments to avoid having dry hair.
  • Less brushing – dry hair during the winter can become very brittle. Excessive brushing can damage dry, brittle hair. Avoid unwanted damage by using a wide-tooth comb for detangling.

E6

 

  • Protective styling – buns, updos, ponytails or braids are great styles for winter. Keep your hair protected from tangling (turtlenecks should be called hair tanglers) by putting hair up during the winter. These styles also serve as a way to keep your hands, brushes, and heated appliances away from your hair.

 

 

Remember that the needs of our hair are as different as our personal needs. Adopting any or all of these tips during winter will help you win the battle against dry hair. Even if you don’t suffer from dry hair during the warmer months winter protection for hair is important.

5 Awesome Tips for Moisturizing Dry Hair

Dry_Hair_E_September_title_1

 

Managing dry hair is no fun, but it is possible. It is important to understand what dry hair needs and what you should be doing so that it can be manageable. We have put together our best tips for giving moisture to dried out tresses.

Moisturizing Naturally

The first line of defense against dry hair is a healthy scalp. Our bodies are a wonder, there’s no doubt about it, one of the many anatomic wonders is the hair growth process. Our skin produces a waxy substance called sebum. If you produce excessive amounts of sebum, your hair is probably what is considered oily. Very little sebum production will leave you with dry hair. If you have dry hair you should be using a hydrating shampoo. Essentious Exonerate is a gentle cleanser with an aloe vera base that fully takes advantage of the plants’ healing and moisturizing properties. There are ways to encourage more production of natural sebum, and increasing your hair’s natural moisture should be your first step toward managing dry hair.

Healthy Hair Tips for Less Porosity

 

Healthy-Hair-Tips-POROSITY-1

If someone asked you to explain the way your hair looks you probably can come up with dozens of descriptors – but would porous make the cut. As we think of our hair in terms of length, thickness, and overall health we rarely seek out healthy hair tips for managing the porosity of our hair. In a previous post we explained the importance of maintaining a smooth closed cuticle, well porosity is the result of cuticles that have been too open, for too long.

Certain hair types are more prone to porosity than others, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t work to minimize the amount of porosity in your hair. But the way to repair hair that has become porous is different depending on the degree of porosity. Don’t know how to determine whether or not you have porous hair to what degree it is damaged? There are a couple of simple tests that you can do at home to understand whether or not your hair is porous. Place a shed hair (don’t pull or cut) into a glass, the degree to which your hair sinks in the water shows how porous your hair is or isn’t. Hair that has high porosity will sink, normal porosity will float in the water, low porosity hair will remain unmoved on top of the water. Don’t have a glass of water handy? Try rubbing thumb and index finger down a strand of hair. If you descend down the strand smoothly you have low porosity hair, a bumpy ride down indicates high porosity.

Over the course of our lives many of us will use or have used a cocktail of serums, gels, moisturizers, cleansing products and an array of styling tools to get anywhere near the look that seems so easily attained at the salon. Try as we might most of us will fail miserably because we don’t understand the key to having amazing looking hair. Luckily, we’re in the sharing mood so here it is. Great hair has three major characteristics no matter the length, color or texture of your hair – it has a closed cuticle, smooth hair shaft and minimal frizz.

Why is it that we are not able to maintain the gorgeous style that we get at the salon. Well the simple answer is that most things are better left to a professional.

How much time are you willing to put into finding (or making) products that give you the desired end result while not breaking the bank.

Whichever of these are your priority we can give you a few pointers on how to maximize the results of your hair care processes.

How to Use a Curling Iron: 13 Essential Tips

Hair-Care-USING-A-CURLING-IRON-1Do you want to know how to use a curling iron? A curling iron can be a girl’s best friend, especially when prepping to attend a special occasion. In fact, for some, a curling iron has become a part of their everyday hair routine. It is a magical tool that can easily add texture to the hair. However, it can also cause hair damage and breakage if not used properly. To get gorgeous curls, they are not really that easy to use. When watching hair tutorials or hair stylists do it, it looks like a no brainer. But when you start doing it on your own hair, it is actually harder than it looks.

So, here are some tips on how to use a curling iron:

1. Moisturize your hair

Curling irons can be drying, so it is important that your hair is well-moisturized especially if you are using it often. Some hair stylists though prefer skipping the conditioner on the day you are curling your hair. In this way, the curls will not slide and will just stay in place. You can also do this once in a while. But if the curling iron is your best friend every single day, do not skip conditioner. Heat can be ultimately damaging so you need to moisturize your hair to prevent dryness and frizz.

How To Get Rid of Oily Hair: 11 Secrets Revealed

Hair-Care-Tips-GET-RID-OF-OILY-HAIR-1Are you on a quest to learn how to get rid of oily hair? Before going to work in the morning, you spent a lot of time in front of the mirror styling your hair. By the time you meet your friends for dinner, you’re surprised to see how greasy your hair is, as if you did not take a shower. Oily hair is due to an oily scalp. The sebaceous glands on the scalp produce oil, which is not a bad thing at all. In fact, it keeps hair protected and moisturized. For some though, there can be an overproduction of oil. As with other things, anything in excess is not good. Hyperactive sebaceous glands can be caused by genetics, diet, hygiene, and sometimes sickness. So, if you have oily hair, what are the things you can do? According to our natural hair care expert here are some tips:

1. Use shampoo specifically for oily hair

There are a lot of shampoos to choose from, but you have to get a product that targets the problem. You can also use a sulfate-free shampoo like Exonerate Gentle Shampoo. It is a moisturizing shampoo that uses organically based emulsifiers with a base of Aloe Vera gel, taking advantage of its healing and moisturizing properties. Some people with oily hair are not comfortable seeing the word “moisturizing” in a hair product, thinking they would be left with oilier hair. In reality, you still need a little moisturizer on your scalp because leaving it too dry can lead to your sebaceous glands working double time, which means secreting more oil.  Choosing the right shampoo is an important part of how to get rid of oily hair.

Mistakes To Avoid While Washing Your Hair

Hair-Care-Tips-MISTAKES-TO-AVOID-WASHING-HAIR-1Are you looking for tips on how to wash your hair? Who would have thought that the way you wash your hair everyday could affect the health of your hair and your overall style? Well it’s true – according to our hair care expert washing your hair is much more of a science than we thought and there are many of us out there who have been doing it wrong all along.

The most common hair blunders are revealed below, along with solutions so that we can all avoid making the same mistakes in the future!

Washing your hair every day

Stylists generally recommend washing your hair every other day as hair tends to look best when the natural oils that start on your scalp are allowed to reach the ends. If you can, waiting until the third day is even better! If you’re worried about your hair looking greasy, try spraying your roots with dry shampoo and restyle with a blow dryer.

Changing shampoos too often

While it has been said that changing your shampoo often can make your hair look healthier, it turns out that’s really not the case. In reality, your hair doesn’t know the difference between brands and doesn’t “get used to” a certain shampoo. Our hair’s texture does change with the seasons, however, so it is a good idea to use
