How to treat your hair during the harsh winter months

Anne Veck, ( multi award-winning hairdresser, offers her expert advice on how to treat your hair during the harsh winter months.

The intense cold, harsh winds and effects of central heating during the winter months can play havoc with your hair. The general lack of moisture in the air during the cold weather can lead to your hair becoming dehydrated and therefore more prone to frizziness, split ends and even breakage. Also doing its bit to dry out your locks is the unnatural heat of central heating and hot air conditioning. Both are enemies to healthy looking hair, static and split ends.

So, as dry hair appears duller and less healthy, and no one wants that at the height of the party season, here are my top tips to ensure your hair stays looking and feeling fabulous.

The best way to protect your hair is to prepare it in advance. Often, it's the measures we take to combat the cold that leads to lacklustre hair. Hats and scarves can lead to flat hair, and, depending on the material they are made from, add to the static! But don't panic! There are a range of products you can use throughout the winter months to keep hair healthy and gorgeous looking:

Get your hair ready to combat the elements with an intense treatment, such as Revlon Orofluido Mask. The Revlon Be Fabulous Shampoo and Conditioner will also keep your hair smooth, sleek and shiny, making it more manageable and protecting it from the elements for long-lasting results.
To avoid that flat hat-hair, try spritzing some Revlon Volume Elevator Spray into your hair after towel or blow-drying for added volume.

To combat dryness and dehydration, I recommend the Revlon Uniq One Spray as it repairs, hydrates and seals in one. It's great to keep in your handbag or gym bag for that quick fix. It's like giving your hair a glass of water when it's been exposed to the heating in your house and car, and the harsher elements outside.

To help beat static and dullness, I would suggest the Revlon Orofluido Oil, which is infused with essential oils to add shine and keep frizz away. It keeps hair supple and creates a protective shield so that hair is not as exposed to the negative aspects of winter.

Always apply heat protection when using an electrical tool on your hair. Revlon Double or Nothing Heat Protection Spray adds beautiful shine and protects up to 230c/446f, keeping it in the best condition possible for when you head out into the cold.

Finally, never leave the house with wet hair during cold weather. The last thing you want is tiny icicles forming in your hair, weighing it down and potentially causing breakage.

Just because its cold outside, doesn't mean your hair can't look hot!
