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.  

Prevent Flaky, Itchy Scalp During Winter

In winter, a bad hair day can easily become a few terrible hair months. As the weather gets colder, your scalp can become dry, start to peel and become itchy. While this is usually only temporary, it is still a problem you do not want to have to face. 

Applying a natural oil to your hair ensures it is well hydrated with essential moisture and nutrients. At our hair salon in Thornton Heath, Croydon, we stock only the very best hair products which we can match to your hair type, perfect for your everyday hair care and styling needs. Pop into our salon anytime for some advice on the best hair care products.

Adopt a Healthy Diet

Healthy eating for healthy hair, Karen Wright Hair Salon in Thornton Heath, CroydonA healthy diet is essential to keep your body nourished, and is important for the health of your hair 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.

Salmon is loaded with strong hair supporters including vitamin D and protein, alongside omega-3 fatty acids to promote hair growth by keeping your scalp healthy. 

Prevent Dull & Damaged Hair In Winter

As the weather turns, so does the setting on our thermostat! We spend much of our time in winter in centrally heated rooms, 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.
