Winter is Coming: Protect Your Hair

Winter is coming—or here already rather— and while that may mean pumpkin spice lattes, wrapping up in your favorite blanket scarf and putting up festive holiday lights, it can also mean harsh, abrasive winds, dry air and unfarily cold temperatures. These frigid factors, along with the long, hot showers we love to take in the colder months, can leave hair and skin desperate for moisture and susceptible to damage. Here, with fill your toolkit with ways to battle the almost-unbearable winter freeze. Trust us, your spring mane with thank you.

Stay Away Static
Hair gets more exposure to fabric in the colder months because it is in constant contact with hats, scarves and overcoats. More contact with thick materials means more static. Keep static at bay by adding a leave in-moisturizer (Supershine Moisturizing Cream) post shower or a spritz of finishing spray (Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray) before leaving the house.

Mask Your Problems
During the winter months, it’s a great idea to treat your to a once-a-week, deep conditioning treatment. This will help to replenish moisture to your strands, which tend to suffer in the elements. We recommend our Signature Moisture Masque and Gold Lust Transformative Masque.

Oil You Glad I Didn’t Say Banana
Everyone should use a leave-in conditioner when it’s blustery outdoors, but if a cream product isn’t for you, an alternative choice could be a highly concentrated hair oil. After you’ve suds and conditioned in the shower, apply a few protective drops of Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil to deeply condition, strengthen and smooth.

Lifted Away
For those who experience year-round limpness in the hair, the pesky problem may be more obvious in winter when humidity is no longer a plumping factor. Limpness is typically caused by overactive oil glands, which can weigh the hair down at the roots. To keep hair at its fullest, try Maximista Thickening Spray.

Wash You Talking About?
If you can, keep your winter hair washing to a minimum. Abandoning everyday shampoo sessions will prevent hair from drying out and will help retain moisture, which is key in the colder, drier holiday season. Check out our brand new Gold Lust Dry Shampoo, or cult classic Dry Texturizing Spray to make hair styles last as long as possible.

Beat the Heat
Curling irons can damage hair in the summer, fall, winter or spring, however, December through March your hair tends to be more dry and even more susceptible to damage from hot tools. Instead of using a curling iron, turn to Surfcomber Tousled Texture Mousse or Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray to enhance natural texture and waves with an added bonus of hydration. And if you already rock ringlets, forget the straightener and embrace the bounce with our Moisture & Control line.

Back to Black
While summer is the time for lighter hair and blonde highlights, you might want to avoid too many coloring sessions in the colder months. Bleach and dye is incredibly damaging and drying for the hair. But, if you must change you color up, use Shampoo and Conditioner for Beautiful Color to put back what the coloring process has stripped out. And, to make your dye job last longer between sessions, spray Airbrush Root Touch-Up Spray at the roots—your secret is safe with us.

Detangle Angel
Brushing your hair while it’s wet is always a no-no: Water causes hair to swell making it more fragile, so brushing when wet can cause major breakage. Consider adding a detangler (Run-Through Detangling Primer) to your routine. The extra conditioning will allow your brush to glide through hair seamlessly, avoiding a major break-up between strands.
