During the holidays you are probably seen by many friends, family and colleagues. You need to make sure you are showing up with healthy and rich looking hair! Here are some helpful hints to combat against dry and brittle seasonal hair. A healthy trim will start the season on a good note. A deep conditioning treatment is in your best interest to avoid a dry and damaged look. Call and book a conditioning treatment prior to a haircut service. Arriving a half hour early for this type of treatment will restore and hydrate your hair. Washing your hair during the winter months to frequently will lead to more damaged looking hair. Alternate washing your hair every other day but condition each time. I recommend Doyle Designed "Rehydrating Shampoo". It is designed to moisturize your hair and scalp, and is sulfate free so it is gentle on color treated hair. This will ensure healthy and shiny hair. Doyle Designed "Instant Conditioner" is a instant conditioner that will restore moisture and help to smooth the strands of your hair and will aid in combating winter static electricity. Rinse hair with a lukewarm water temperature not with hot water. Rinsing you hair with cool water at the end will help to lock in the moisture from your conditioner. Doyle Designed "Thermal Protectant" sprayed into hair after towel drying will help to protect your hair from the damaging effect of heat styling. Static in the hair can be helped with the right product. Applying Doyle Designed "Shine repair" will help to smooth fly away hair and add shine to dry hair. Always try to avoid leaving the house with wet hair. With the cold weather, air drying is not a good option. Since you find yourself grabbing the blow dryer more often, you must blow out your hair properly to avoid dry dull winter hair and overusing additional styling tools. Gently pat you hair dry with a towel after showering, removing any excess water. Brush and detangle your locks by gently brushing with a wide-tooth comb. Try blow drying on a medium heat setting so you are not burning your hair. Thoroughly dry your hair to avoid damage when wearing a winter hat. If you are wearing coats that have wool collars be sure to have a silk scarf or cotton scarf over the collar so you do not create friction and reduces the rubbing on your hairline which can result in damaged hair. I hope you have a wonderful holiday and wish you a healthy new year!
