During winter, cold weather is the number one threat to your hair. Just like the sun and salty water can damage it during summer, the wind and the cold air can also make your hair dry and brittle.

Here’s how to prevent winter hair damage.

Less Shampooing

Your hair will probably get less greasy during the winter, so you won’t have to wash it as often as you did in the summertime. Often shampooing leads to itchy scalp and dry ends.


It’s important to keep your hair moisturized by using hair masks and leave-in products that will take care of it. If your hair is naturally dry, you may even want to incorporate hair oils into your hair care routine.

Go Darker

Platinum shades of blonde look great, but if you can’t, opt for a darker shade this winter. Your hair will regenerate when you stop bleaching it and it has plenty of time to completely recover until spring.
