Trim Hair to Beat Split Ends In Winter 

Irrespective of how well you take care of your locks, during winter you cannot entirely escape split ends. Central heating can cause your hair to dry out, disrupting the structure of your hair and damaging the cuticles.

Rough cuticles can leave us with dull looking hair, whilst smooth cuticles reflect light better and make hair look shinier. Additionally, woollen hats worn in winter can cause friction, leading to split ends. The surest way to deal with split ends is getting a regular haircut at Karen Wright salon in Thornton Heath, Croydon.

Nourish Your Hair From Within

Drinking enough water is essential to keep your body healthy, your skin clear and your hair moisturised. The recommended amount to drink each day for an adult is 8 glasses per day - you can get this by swapping dehydrating coffees for herbal teas if the thought of drinking lots of cold water in the winter isn't appealing!

A healthy diet is essential to keep your hair healthy too. To ensure that you are getting all of the vitamins and minerals that you need for healthy hair you should be eating plenty of protein and omega 3. Fresh fish, nuts and plenty of fruit and vegetables will not only fuel your body in a healthy way, they will start to show in the health of your hair too!

Prevent Dull & Damaged Hair In Winter

As the weather cools, the setting on our thermostat goes up! We spend much of our time in winter in centrally heated rooms, and then stepping out into the cold, which can cause our hair to dry out and become brittle.

Consistently hydrating your hair will ensure that it doesn't dry out and can help to reduce the risk of breakage. Treat yourself to a weekly deep conditioning hair treatment, to help to replenish the moisture, which tends to get depleted from things such as the dry heat in your home and the cold winter air.
