Hair vs Wintertime: Win the Battle!

Winter weather can cause your hair some of the worst damage it will see year-round. But don't worry! There are plenty of ways to avoid wintertime damage to keep your tresses healthy and beautiful.

Beat the winter weather to
maintain gorgeous hair!
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize - During dry winter weather, your hair needs more moisture than normal (even indoor heating can dry out your hair!). Use moisturizing shampoo and conditioners, deep condition at least once a week, and use a moisturizing styling product like Morroccanoil's Original Oil Treatment.

Turn Down the Temp - Adjust your water temperature in the shower. Extended contact with hot water can strip your hair. Try showering in warm water instead. And for an added moisture bonus, after conditioning rinse your hair in cold water. This shocks the cuticle closed helping your hair hold in the moisture.

Style Smart - Adjust your hair products. Avoid any product with a high alcohol content. This will dry your hair out further. Also, use styling creams as opposed to hair gels. Creams add moisture to the hair and allow elasticity.

The fight against winter hair damage may be a tough one, but with a little extra attention, you can win the battle!
