Noticed it or not, but your hair, as well as your skin, goes through a lot of problems during the cold season. The dryness, coldness, and various other factors harm your hair more than anything during this time of the year.
I have written before that as a family we have to look after the boys skin to ensure that their eczema doesn’t flare up, but we often neglect our hair. If you wish to have beautiful and healthy hair all year long and keep in mind a few basic tips. So bellow, you will find five most essential ones that will guarantee good results almost instantly and will make sure that your hair is 100 percent gorgeous. Use it not only to help yourself, but take additional care of your little ones too, and enjoy healthy and beautifully looking hair all together!
Wash less often
Every time we have a shower or bath we remove not only all the dirt from our bodies but natural protective oils our skin and hair produce too. And the more we bath, the more often we make it a bit harder to our bodies to recreate the right balance of such oils. Moreover, since cold air already dries out hair, practically there are no need to wash it every day and dry it even more.
Therefore, better skip a few head washes during winter and limit it to 1 or 2 times per week to help your hair deal with cold weather better. This way you will surely help to keep a good natural oil balance as well. Believe it or not sometimes the boys go a couple of weeks without shampoo (not water) and their hair smells delicious.
Try out colder showers
This sounds a little bit weird and not so pleasant during winter, but in fact, if you try out having a cooler shower during winter rather than hot and steamy one – you can see better results almost instantly.
To be fair, hot water tends to strip moisture and natural oils your hair needs so much then it is cold. So better, try to take a warm or even lukewarm shower instead. Do it for 10 minutes or less to prevent hair from becoming too dry and see the results almost instantly!
Use a deep conditioner
As you might notice, here we are mostly talking about how to keep your hair well hydrated, full of natural oils and healthy. So, another way how you can achieve that is very straightforward – to use special kind of hair conditioning that will hydrate your hair deeply and both from the inside and outside. Treat your hair like that once a week to refresh and lock in moisture lost from dry air and enjoy beautiful hair just like that.
If you don’t know where to get such conditioners, there are some pretty excellent and high-quality conditioners like that at Kohl’s stores.

Get regular trims
Another tip you should keep in mind if you want to have healthy hair (and not only during winter) is to cut regularly it. Regular trims are essential, and it is must do no matter the season or hair length. Regular trims are essential for my two boys who’s hair grows at an alarming rate!
In fact, it is the most efficient way to keep your hair healthy! Trimming your hair works well if you want to get rid of dry ends we might be having because of hat wearing or incorrect hair treatments. So book your next visit to the hairdresser and get a chance to renew yourself as well!
Be careful with heat treatment
And finally, during the cold season we tend to use heated appliances more. That might result in too much heat on the hair, and that might cause further moisture loss. So, the logical solution here would be skipping heat treatment until winter ends.
But if you can’t skip this procedure daily, better add a little extra effort and start to blow drying it. This will cut down a number of times you will apply heat to your hair and help you enjoy healthy and well-hydrated hair too! Therefore, just be cautious of heat treatment and if it is really so necessary to do it even during winter, do it carefully and with love.
