SWITCH UP YOUR HAIR PRODUCTS TO SUIT THE SEASON AND YOUR HAIR TYPE AND YOU COULD PREVENT SPLIT ENDS, DAMAGE AND FRIZZ FROM STRIKING.
Whatever time of year it is there’s always an impact on how behaved hair is and winter is no different. Instead of high temperatures and humidity outside sucking the moisture out of strands, it’s the cold weather and temperature fluxes from outdoors to inside that leave hair struggling to know how to cope.
Don’t even get us started on the side effects clothes can have on hair. Scarves that tug and could trigger breakage and split ends, woolly hats that cause static and frizz and could result in an overheated scalp…and then there’s festive season hair to throw in the mix.
Extra styling, heated tools and a shed load of products day in day out (that’s December socializing for you) and your hair is going to be vulnerable and in need of some time out.
But that doesn’t mean you have to ditch the polo necks and scarves and freeze to death, or you have to go out with wet hair. You just need to make sure you’re tweaking your routine to suit the temperatures.
If your hair is prone to frizz and is feeling weak, START your routine with KMS MOISTREPAIR Cleansing Conditioner. It eliminates the need for a separate shampoo, minimizing time in the shower and time rubbing your hair. It’s a bit like the ‘gentle wash’ setting on your washing machine – the one you use for delicates. Suitable for all types, once your hair is clean and conditioned, add a tailored Primer into the mix.
For dry or colored hair that’s showing signs of damage, stick with the MOISTREPAIR Style Primer that repairs the hair’s surface and improves elasticity, making it easier to style. For fine hair the ADDVOLUME Style Primer should be your go-to as it plumps from root to tip while those with frizzy and unruly hair that goes wild in winter should choose TAMEFRIZZ Style Primer to keep hair smooth and in check.
With all the styling commitments party season throws at you, throw in a wash using HEADREMEDY Deep Cleanse Shampoo followed by your chosen conditioner every now and then. A great re-set button for hair, it breaks down any excess product residue left on hair as well as rinsing away pollutants so it will automatically look and feel healthier. If your hair is really struggling, think about adding in TAMEFRIZZ Smoothing Reconstructor.
A hair mask that’s suitable for all hair types, even fine hair, it’s deeply conditioning but not heavy so it won’t weight down your hair. It will soften even the most deeply stressed and overworked hair. Plus you don’t have to leave it on forever, up to five minutes is enough to unleash its powers.
Talking of styling, while too many products can cause hair upset, it’s the time of year when you can’t just leave your hair to air-dry and hope for the best. Instead look for formulas that nourish your hair as well as mould it into your desired ‘do. For straight hair or styles that need a natural, fuzz-free finish, STYLE with THERMASHAPE Straightening Creme that reduces heat damage and breakage as well as helping hair keep it’s shape and hold. The CURLUP Perfecting Lotion eases curls into shape, provides frizz control and humidity resistance so anyone with wavy hair should scrunch this in post-wash.
FINISH with TAMEFRIZZ De-frizz Oil that smoothes flyaways and friction from that winter wardrobe, and a helping of HAIRSTAY Molding Pomade. With polymers that give a non-sticky feel and a flexible finish, its great for hold and definition. Or for longer hair, HAIRSTAY Firm Finishing Hairspray does the trick. Proof you can still look hot, even when it’s cold outside.
