Are you hiding under hats this winter due to a perpetual bad hair day? Winter is tough on your locks, and it certainly doesn’t help that the Texas weather can’t make up its mind. One minute it’s cold and dry, causing brittle hair full of static, and the next it’s cool and humid, causing unmanageable frizz. You don’t have to retreat under a beanie to face the outside world. At Kinetico San Antonio, we have the answers. But before we even touch on the miracle products that exist to tame winter hair, let’s get back to the basics.
If you have hard water squeaking through your showerhead, your hair is in for a rough winter.
Just like with your glassware and shower door, hard water mineral scum will cling to your hair, robbing it of shine and bounce. Those deposits can also clog up your pores, blocking essential oils from reaching and moisturizing your hair. By making the smart switch to soft water, you can wash away the hard water grime that clings to your skin and hair.
Did you know that you weren’t meant to be squeaky clean? In fact, that squeak is the sound of hard water scum rubbing across (you guessed it) more scum! Soft water leaves nothing behind, allowing your body’s natural oils to moisturize your skin and hair for optimum shine and strength. There are plenty of energy-efficient and affordable water softener solutions for your home with Kinetico San Antonio.
Fight the frizz.
The first step to fighting frizz is a blank (or fresh) canvas. Broken hair is frizzy hair. Start the new year right with a quick trim or a great new haircut. Ridding your hair of split and broken ends is a step in the right direction.
Next, avoid heat damage. Hair dryers and straighteners run rampant in the winter. Whether you’re trying to keep warm or tame rogue hair, you should always, always, always use a heat protectant when blow drying, straightening or curling your hair. This minimizes damage and products like argan oil even add vitamin E and omega 3 and six fatty acids for smoother, shinier hair. If you can, add some argan oil to your damp hair and let it dry naturally for revitalized results.
Lastly, treat your hair to a little R&R. This doesn’t mean shelling out big bucks for spa treatment. You can breathe some life into your hair in three minutes flat, and for under $5, with Aussie’s DEEEEEP 3 Minute Miracle Moisture Treatment. Aloe and jojoba oil will smooth your damaged hair in between haircuts.
There you have it! With the right water and a few inexpensive products, your hair can be camera-ready this winter. What are your favorite tips and tricks for fabulous winter hair?
