At Fabi’s Hair Studio, we know that winter weather can wreak havoc on your hair. During the winter months, cold temperatures and harsh winds can dry out your hair, causing breakage, split-ends, and limp strands. Our midtown NYC hair care helps you to escape that lackluster look, and maintain healthy, shiny hair during long winter months. We encourage you to give your hair a little extra care and treat it to a few styling tricks, and it’ll look much healthier throughout the season. Keeping your hair moisturized to protect it from dry air and cold temperatures is key during the wintertime. For a great moisturizing ingredient, use a shampoo or conditioner containing cetyl alcohol, which is a derivative of coconut, and shows wonderful results. For added benefit it’s beneficial to lock in moisture from your shampoo and conditioners by rinsing your hair in cool to cold water instead of hot. While hair is damp, using a leave in conditioner will not only keep your hair from drying out during the course of the day but also prevent static.
Our midtown NYC hair care specialists also recommend that you cut back on your use of blow dryers, flat irons, and other heated products during colder months. If blow drying your hair is a must, we suggest that you make some extra time for your styling so you can use a cooler setting. The high temperatures on blow-dryers definitely dry out your hair, making it more susceptible to damage from the cold and wind. Our expert stylists will makes sure that your hair is totally dry before leaving the salon and you should do the same at home as well. The cold winter temperatures can freeze even slightly damp hair, causing split ends and breakage. Keep the wind in check as well and wear your hair up on a particularly gusty day. Besides making it look disheveled and tangled, harsh, whipping winds can cause damage to your hair so best to wear it in a ponytail.
Not shampooing your hair too often is another helpful tip our midtown NYC hair care specialists will give since this is a common mistake many of our clients make. In cold weather, both the hair and scalp dry out more easily so try not to shampoo your hair more than once a day. When you do shampoo and condition, the type of products you use on your hair will make a big difference in the overall health of your hair.
