Q: Tips to keep your hair from getting overly dry in the winter

A: Whether it’s holiday parties, Christmas or even weddings – winter months bring along exciting opportunities to dress up and look your best, which often means we are thermally abusing our locks with excessive heat-styling tools paired with a drier environment, you have dry frazzled hair. Winter takes it’s toll on our hair and inhibits us from looking our best. Dry hair is a minor irritation of the season but it is completely preventable. Here are a few tips to keep your hair healthy, radiant and hydrated during the winter months:

Moisturizing Shampoo/Conditioner: Winter is the time to switch your regimen to a more moisturizing formula. We recommend trying UNITE Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner. Together these noursish your moisture starved hair and radiate your natural health and shine without weighing your hair down.
Thermal Protector: If you’re using a curling iron or flat iron, be sure to use a thermal protector like GHD Thermal Protector. The heat-deflecting ingredients in GHD form a protective coating around the strands of normal to fine hair. Each formulation provides added control for unruly hair while adding sustained moisture when used with heat styling tools.

Leave in Conditioner: For your own at-home use, use a leave in conditioner every time you wash your hair. UNITE 7-Seconds Conditioner is great for fine to medium hair and AG FastFood works wonders on course, dry hair.

Deep Conditioner: If you can do one thing, treat yourself to a deep conditioning treatment once a week. A great option is Keratin Vanilla Bean. This weekly deep conditioning treatment is amazing for improving moisture-loss. Keratin Complex Infusion is another deep conditioner option that is reconstructive and weightless, particularly good for those who need to manage curl or have fine hair.

To maintain a gorgeous shine while reconditioning your hair, try MoroccanOil before or after you blow-dry. You’ll never guess it’s the middle of winter by the looks of your hair! We guarantee you’ll love it.

Simonson’s also offers two different deep conditioning treatments in our salons, Keratin Complex Infusion and Keratin Intense Rx. Your stylist will know which one is best for you by analyzing what your hair treatment needs are. These treatments add moisture and shine while strengthening and restoring your hair to a healthier condition.
