Top 12 Tips for Avoiding Dry Hair This Winter



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




  • 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.



  • 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.



  • 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.



  • 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.



  • 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.



  • 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.

Solutions For Bad Hair Days

Hair-Care-Tips-SOLUTIONS-FOR-BAD-HAIR-DAYS-1How we wish our hair was always as gorgeous and looked like we just stepped out of a salon. Too bad because it just doesn’t work that way. With our unpredictable weather, our hair can sometimes be uncooperative. What’s even worse? It would fall during those important meetings, festive events, romantic dinners, and other occasions where we need to look our best.

Fret no more. Here are some remedies for your bad hair day problems:

Shampoo and Conditioner. The best way to keep your hair healthy and looking good is by washing your hair. Since shampooing can also dry hair, use a sulfate-free shampoo 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. It has a rich lather and a light, refreshing scent. Just apply one to two tablespoons to wet hair, making a lather. Repeat if necessary. Then, follow with conditioner. Use Rejuvenate Strengthening Protein Treatment followed by the Hydrate Conditioning Treatment. Concentrate the conditioner from the middle section of your hair all the way down to the tips. If you have time, let the product stay for a few minutes to let the hair absorb the moisturizing ingredients.

For those who have no time to shower, it’s time to put your hair up, or pull it back or to the side and still look fab.

Here are some stylish hair techniques:


Flawless Hair For Your First Date

Hair-Care-Tips-FLAWLESS-HAIR-FOR-FIRST-DATE-1Below is a list of things that you can do to beautify yourself without breaking the bank in preparation for a first date.

1.Get enough sleep

Sleeping has a lot of benefits for the mind and the body. It makes you more alert and sets up your mood which will be important for your first date. It is good for the body because it energizes you. It makes your skin look younger and more radiant at the same time, spares you from getting unwanted eye bags. And did you know that it can also save you from getting dandruff?

Dandruff, which is our hair’s mortal enemy, is often caused by too much stress. When you get enough sleep, you are letting your body recover from fatigue, which in turn prevents dandruff from occurring.

2. Eat a healthy diet

Your diet is essential in getting a flawless hair. Your hair is basically made up of proteins and collagen. If you are eating the right food sources of those, like eggs, chicken, nuts, and avocado, you are helping your hair to repair itself.

When you have enough nutrients to repair your hair it means


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


Pretty Hair After a Hard Workout!

Hair-Care-Tips-PRETTY-HAIR-AFTER-WORKOUT-1You’ve worked up a sweat at the gym and now it’s time to go out and see the world. So how exactly do you go from sweaty mess to beautiful babe? With a few simple tips and tricks, you can easily transition from hot mess to perfectly gorgeous in no time at all!

Here are some tips and tricks for your post-workout hair:

  1. Wash sensibly

Instead of using both a shampoo and conditioner, try a cleansing conditioner that’s made of ¼ cleansing ingredients and ¾ conditioning ingredients. Not only will this save you time, it will also prevent your strands from drying out. When you’re done washing your hair, squeeze excess water out of your strands, and then comb in a styling product with your fingers.

  1. Practice time management

Before you start styling your hair, check the clock to see how much time you actually have. Don’t start blow-drying your hair if you don’t have enough time to finish the job. Stopping halfway through can lead to frizz and flat hair. If you don’t have enough time, work a styling cream into your hair and let it air-dry. To add texture to hair that’s been air dried, try twisting your hair in two-inch pieces away from your face with a bit of styling cream.

  1.  No time for a shower?

Why You Should Avoid Alcohol in Hair Products


If you’re steering clear of all hair care products containing alcohol, don’t be too hasty. Some alcohols are definitely drying, but others are beneficial. Alcohols to avoid include SD alcohol, isopropyl alcohol and denatured. All of those, especially in high concentrations, can cause dryness. They’re often found in hair gels and sprays.

Fatty alcohols, however, are fine to use. If you see cetearyl, stearyl or behenyl alcohol, these ingredients are typically used as thickeners. They don’t evaporate quickly like the alcohols you should avoid, and you’ll often find them in shampoos and conditioners. Knowing the nature of different alcohols will help you select the best products for your hair.


Cold Weather Hair Care

Hair-Care-COLD-WEATHER-HAIR-CARE-1As the fall season fades away, and winter brings its icy chill your way, you want to make sure that your hair care regimen addresses the changing environmental conditions. Harsh winter weather can wreak havoc on your hair. Cold weather can pull natural moisture from your locks, creating frizzy, flyaway hair and split ends. So how do you keep your hair safe from the cold? First, look for a moisturizing, sulfate-free shampoo to restore some of that lost moisture. Essentious Exonerate shampoo is loaded with moisturizing ingredients such as aloe vera, vegetable glycerin, and vitamin E. Next, an intensive conditioner application with heat is recommended. Some ingredients to look for are panthenol/ pro-vitamin B5, and wheat or keratin proteins that will help add strength and shine to your hair; many of which can be easily found in Essentious Hydrate Conditioning Treatment. During the winter, your hair may require an increased number of deep conditioning sessions, 1-3 times per week is usually sufficient. Lastly, never leave out your leave-in conditioner! Leave-in conditioner packs your hair with moisture and protects against split ends. Get the products you need to protect your hair from the cold from Essentious Hair Care.


Caring for Relaxer Burns

Hair-Care-RELAXER-BURNS-1Every woman dreads relaxer chemical burns, and most of us have battled with a relaxer burn in our lives. Though they tend to happen frequently, relaxer chemical burns are not a normal part of chemical relaxing. In fact, a properly applied chemical relaxer should never cause a burn. Chemical burns can only occur when protective petroleum layers on the scalp are breached. When relaxer chemicals are left on the hair beyond the suggested processing times, or the scalp is not based well prior to relaxer application, scalp burns and hair breakage from over-processing will occur. When the scalp is burned, it often becomes tender. Scabs soon form, and hair can become caught within the scab and become “glued” to the scalp. So what can you do to treat chemical relaxer burns? Because the scalp skin is like other skin on the body, typical burn ointments like Neosporin will help heal and condition it. Additionally, you may apply Vitamin E oil or Aloe vera gel to the burn to calm redness and irritation. If your hair is stuck within the scab, apply petroleum jelly to help soften the scabbed skin and gently attempt to free a few strands at a time. Lastly, deep conditioning the hair will also help soften your scab so that it gently falls away.

Go Grey Gracefully – Keeping Yellow at Bay

Hair-Care-GO-GREY-GRACEFULLY-1Grey hair is fast losing its negative image. The tide is turning and many women are embracing their grey, white and silver hair with pride. With care and confidence grey hair really can be an older woman’s crowning glory. Still, silver or grey hair can sometimes develop a yellowish tinge because of pollution in the air or water. Aging hair needs special attention and there are now many products on the market that reflect this.  But remember to use these sparingly, or alternate weekly with your usual shampoo. Look for blue- or violet-based shampoo that will help to neutralize the yellow. Lastly, keep your grey hair in good shape by using conditioner regularly, as grey hair often becomes dry and brittle due to lack of natural oils in the hair.

Seamless Combs for Healthier Hair

Hair-Care-SEAMLESS-COMBS-1Take your comb and inspect the teeth. Is there a line down the middle? If you can’t see it, can you feel a raised edge in the middle? That’s the seam. With every pass of that comb through your hair the seams can catch and snag on the hair causing splits and breakage. If you’re having a problem with split ends that seem to appear from nowhere you might benefit from investing in a seamless comb. Not only does it help detangle hair, but it prevents damage to the cuticles that cause mid shaft splits as well. Regular combs have seams that wreak havoc on your hair strands causing both mid-shaft splits and split ends. So don’t put in all the hard work to grow long, healthy hair only to have it compromised with the wrong equipment!  Sure! They are more expensive than regular combs as they are often handmade. But isn’t your hair worth this small investment for a lifetime of reward?
