The right shampoo – sets you right
Cold, wet winter weather can take its toll on your hair. The best way to protect your hair from the elements is to cover your head with a hat or scarf it can also lead to a build-up of dirt and sweat that could irritate the scalp. So make sure you use a good shampoo that prevents dandruff and protects and nourishes the scalp before flakes start to appear. We recommend AVEDA Scalp Benefits.
Dry shampoo – to keep it light when times tight
Other than static, winter brings the thought of coziness, and sometimes, that turns into laziness. For after a workout, during a day of travel, or for those looking to save water, Shampure™ Dry Shampoo can handle all those scenarios. Not only does using a dry shampoo between washes save water, the Aveda Shampure™ Dry Shampoo uses a non-aerosol mist to revive hair, so it’s respectful of the Earth as well. As a non-aerosol spray, Shampure™ Dry Shampoo absorbs natural oils of hair. Of course, being Aveda, the Shampure™ Dry Shampoo is a blend of natural powders with ingredients like oat and cassava, among other plant extracts. We recommend AVEDA Shampure™ Dry Shampoo.
Lock in moisture – cold rinse, blow dry on low
Wash with cold after conditioning (and resist over drying with the hairdryer). After you condition (or deep condition) your hair in the shower, turn the faucet to cold (at least cooler if too cold) and finish with a cool water rinse. This will quickly seal the cuticle and help your strands retain their moisture. And, instead of blasting your hair with high heat, spend an extra ten minutes and dry your hair on the low-medium setting. Together these steps will prolong your hair’s suppleness and shine.
Shine & Control Fizz – fights static and provides vitamin A
With dry winter weather, what’s the best way to prevent flyaway hair? A typical hairspray can keep hair in place, but can also add extra weight. To have soft-to-the-touch hair that is styled to perfection, Aveda’s Brilliant™ Spray-On Shine is the best hair care product for the job. Designed to give hair an instant gloss, Brilliant™ Spray-On Shine is meant for all hair types. The Vitamin E is a powerful anti-oxidant which helps protect hair against environmental aggressors. This will keep your hair static free and look fresh throughout the day. We recommend AVEDA Brilliant™ Spray-On Shine.
Salon maintenance – keep hair healthy and trimmed
Whether you have long or short hair, winter weather can make the ends of your hair dry and brittle. Regular trims will keep your hair in good condition and reduce the chance of split ends. So, make sure drop in, and we’ll nourish, care and shape your hair to be fabulous this winter.
