Heading into the holiday season, there is a lot to be excited about, but winter frizz isn’t one of them! As the humidity drops, water evaporates quickly from hair often leaving it dry, frizzy, and electric. Luckily, there are many services and products that can help keep your locks soft and manageable all winter long, read on to learn more!
Hair Smoothing Treatment
Receiving hair smoothing treatments throughout the winter months help keep frizz at bay. Your hair’s outer layer is made up of overlapping cuticles that tend to separate from the dry air of winter. Deep conditioning helps tighten and seal the outer cuticles, leaving hair smooth and soft. Some treatments, such as Aveda’s Agave Smoothing Treatment, can even be done with a color treatment!
You can help avoid breakage and static in the winter by combing or brushing your wet hair with a plastic comb or brush. If it is necessary to detangle dry hair, stick to a metal comb which will help remove static while plastic will add to it. Applying a daily smoothing coat to your locks, like Aveda’s Dry Remedy moisturizing oil, can help keep them smooth and frizz-free.
How to Dry
Extensive heat on winter hair can make frizz worse, avoid blow-drying when possible. When towel drying hair, it is best to use a microfiber towel or soft t-shirt to avoid friction and more static. If you are skipping the hairdryer, Aveda’s Sap Moss conditioner will keep your hair soft and smooth without weighing it down. It isn’t always possible to allow hair to dry on its own, when quick drying is a must Aveda’s Speed of Light Blow Dry Accelerator spray can cut down the dry time by 50%, reducing the amount of heat your strands are exposed to. Use Speed of Light and be sure to aim the air down along the shaft of the hair to help keep those cuticles locked in.
