Battling Dry Winter Hair

After a hot and humid Southern summer, the cooler temps and dryer air are a bit of welcome relief. But when it comes to our hair, it feels like we trade off frizzy, humidity-tormented strands for a dry and static-laden mane.

While we can slather on lotions and oils for our dry skin, taking care of our hair can be a little more complicated. Fortunately, there are plenty of options for showing your hair some extra love this season.

First, let’s talk about a great washing routine. I generally suggest washing every other day during these dry months, and using a little bit of dry shampoo on the roots on those in-between days. A moisturizing shampoo and conditioner system will help prevent further dryness; and be sure to avoid taking long, hot showers to avoid both dry skin and hair.

When styling, be sure to use a heat-protectant to prevent damage, and finish with a light moisturizing oil to banish static and boost shine. I highly recommend Aveda’s Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil because it instantly conditions brittle hair and ends. It really is your secret weapon year-round, but especially throughout winter.

Another way to keep your hair healthy in the dry weather is keeping up with regular trims, and getting a deep conditioning treatment at the salon. At Bella Vita Salon, we offer Aveda’s Botanical Therapy treatments that are specialized for dry or damaged hair and provide lasting, healing results for your strands. Deep conditioning treatments are a super easy way to revitalize your hair, and there are even fantastic options for treatments that you can do at home as well.
