Along with winter comes harsh cold winds, rain and snow. All of these environmental stresses can cause damage to your hair if it is not properly taken care of. Hair can become dry and brittle thus more prone to split ends, frizziness and dull looking hair.
To keep your hair healthy and strong during the cold months try changing some of your hair care products to hair products that will help nourish and protect your hair.
Try a Smoothing Hair Condtioner for dry, unruly hair as this can help manage frizz and fly aways. Curly Hair? Opt for a conditioner such as KMS California Curl Up Conditioner For Dry Curls. KMS Curl Up Conditioner is an intense moisture treatment to help keep curls soft and tangle free.
Hair damage prevention is also a must. Don’t forget about the hair damage that heated styling tools and UV rays can cause to your hair as well. Aveda Brilliant Damage Control for Damaged Hair is perfect for all hair types and works to protect hair from such harsh factors.
A weekly hair care treatment is also a must have all year round. However, the hair care treatment you use should change with the seasons. For winter, opt for a hair treatment that will add moisture, nourish and protect your hair such as a hair mask, hot oil treatment or deep conditioner.
Always be sure to choose products that are meant for your hair type as well. If you color your hair check for color protection, if your hair is over processed then you want a hair care product that will protect and repair. These days with thousands of hair care products to choose from, their are hair care treatments for every every hair type.
There’s only a week left to go before Christmas. Have you finished your shopping yet? In the frenzy of the holidays, it is so easy to forget one or two gifts, or think that you got something for that special someone, when really you forgot. Or maybe you’re one of those people who leaves all their shopping to the last minute. Whatever your shopping style is, if you find yourself in the situation of needing last minute Christmas gifts there is nothing better than giving the gift of style this holiday season by gifting quality hair styling tools.
There are so many choices when it comes to giving hair styling tools, and everywoman on your list will appreciate a quality hair styling tool. If you are stumped on what type of tool to buy, go with a hair straightener. A quality hair iron can be used for so much more than simply hair straightening. Yes, of course you will be able to create sexy, sleek styles, but you can also flip hair out or in, and even add glamorous curls. Yes. Curls with a hair iron.
A quality hair iron also acts like a hair treatment for hair. Instead of damaging hair, like cheaper hair straighteners, a quality iron that is made with ceramic plates and utilizes the power of tourmaline and far infrared heat will actually nourish the hair creating glossier, healthier looking hair than before. The tourmaline and far infrared heat infuses each hair, sealing in the natural oils and moisture to keep it looking healthy, while at the same time sealing the cuticle so that each hair lays flat on the head. So you can say good bye to those frizzy fly aways.
Another great choice for anyone on your gift list is a quality hair dryer. Because even if you have a hair dryer, everyone can use a high quality dryer that cuts their drying time in half and creates healthier hair. Who wouldn’t want that? Choose a hair dryer that uses ionic technology. Negative ions go deep into each hair to dry from the inside, out. This means that hair dries faster. Much faster. In fact, by using an ionic dryer, you can get your hair dry up to 60% faster. How’s that for a Christmas gift? Not only are you giving an awesome dryer, but you’re also giving the gift of more time in the morning. I’m sure you know someone on your list that could use an extra cup of coffee in the morning instead of drying her hair.
If you are stuck on what to buy that special someone on your gift list, take a good look at quality hair tools, because everyone likes to look good and if you can look good with healthier hair in the process, well that’s just an extra. So wrap up a little style this Christmas and give everyone on your last minute shopping list something that they can really use – all year long.
