Winter Blues, and Static Too

17 Jan

The beach, the cool ocean breeze, the smell of salt water, skin that glows, ahhhhhhhhh.  Not only has the warm summer sun left us, but apparently our hair’s sanity has too! What’s with all the static?! The air is cold and dry outside, warm and dry inside, and where does that leave us? With hair standing on ends!! Going from one extreme to the next hot to cold, cold to hot, generates static in the hair which we all know can be pretty stubborn and unruly. How do we rid our hair of this clinging mess? You have probably heard the one with the dryer sheet, rub one across your hair and you are set free.. 

Static hair

Errrrrrrrrrr, wrong. 

Your locks need extra love in the winter.

Just as our skin begins to dry out in the winter and we reach for those heavier hand and face creams, we should be reaching for something

Vitamino Color Shampoo and Conditionermore for our hair. Up your hair regimen to include a slightly heavier shampoo and conditioner. A personal favorite of mine is the L’oreal Professional Vitamino Color Shampoo and Gel Masque. You may even try opting for a sulfate free shampoo, like L’oreal Professional Delicate Color, which tends to smooth out your locks more so than a regular shampoo due to the lack of sudsing agents in the shampoo.

If you don’t already use one, when you come out of the shower, blot your hair dry with a towel, and apply a dollop of leave in conditioner. I love the L’oreal Professional Vitamino Color Care Leave-in Condtioner. Loaded with nutrients and designed for color treated hair!

Use some type of ceramic round brush to dry your hair, as doing this will further help to smooth the cuticle out, thus eliminating frizz. Finally, finish off with a few drops of light oil or polish. Always working from the ends up.
