5 Hot Hair Tips: How To Beat The Winter Weather

The weather in Dallas has been just gorgeous lately--crisp fall climes, with lovely blue skies and very little humidity. But I know what's around the corner: cold winter nights, crazy hair-snapping cold, and dare I say it--messy hat hair. Eek!

This year, I plan to head off bad winter hair by being, as the Girl Scouts would say, prepared! Here are some top tips on how to best winterproof your locks from me.

1. Stock up on leave-in conditioners and protective oils: These act as a cozy coat between your hair and the heat. During the cold dryness of the winter months, damage from a curling or straightening iron can be worse than usual. If you're straightening out or curling up, coat your hair with a leave-in oil such as Moroccan oil. This product contains Argan oil, so it really works to protect your locks.It also has Vitimain A to improve elasticity, Vitamin E to protect against free-radicals, and Phenols to shield against environmental stressors . . so it means business!

2. Air-dry: If you're not freezing post-shower, try to let your hair air-dry before blow-drying it completely. The less hot air you infuse into your locks with the dryer, the more moisture you'll seal in from your shampoo and conditioning products.

3. Stay moisturized: Go to a salon for a professional deep-conditioning treatment at least once a month. This is a great way to keep your hair healthy and shiny in the winter months. If this isn't in your budget, use a Mask treatment you purchased from your salon as a Nourishing Treatment, such as Moroccan Oil Intense Hydrating Mask from the Moroccan oil series is a rich, creamy treatment designed to hydrate and repair damaged hair. Apply the product to clean, damp hair. Leave on for five to ten minutes and rinse out.

4. Keep frizz away: Frizzy hair is one of the worst things about the winter's dryness (think static cling, hat hair . . . ew!). Stop the problem before it begins. I love anti-frizz products and swear by them during the winter. My favorite is the Nano 9, an anti-frizz styling spray applied to towel-dried, damp hair. Still frizz-tastic? spray a small amount finishing spray on a hairbrush, and lightly brush it through your hair from top to bottom. Voila!

5. Be dirty: OK . . . not dirty, but wash your less frequently during the winter. Frizz is a result of dry, broken strands of hair--aka lack of moisture. Washing your hair every day does more damage than good, so wash your hair every third day or every other day if you must.
