Your hair can suffer as you move from the warmth of indoors to the chilly outside.  The change in temperatures can dry out your hair which can lead to static hair, split ends and breakage.

To keep your hair in tip-top condition the team at Karine Jackson have come up with some top tips for healthy winter hair.

Tip 1:  How to prevent static hair 

Dryness is the main cause of static hair. As the air temperature drops and becomes a lot colder, our hair suffers with the change of atmosphere. Turning on the heating in our houses has the same effect, drying out the moisture in our hair causing it to become dehydrated and static. Karine Jackson recommends The Protector treatment from her latest range. The light cream helps shield hair from heat, dryness and daily pollution damage.

TIP 2: Avoid over-washing your hair 

Keep hair washing to a minimum.  Wash your hair two or three times a week rather than every day. If you can bear it, wash your hair in cool water rather than hot water as the heat will dry out your hair.

TIP 3: Reduce the use of heating appliances on your hair

Cut down on the use of hairdryers, styling wands and tongs because these can dry out your hair and cause it to break. If you have to style your hair, smooth some heat protection cream through it first. Split ends love to be treated with a frizz serum or, even better, have your hair trimmed at Karine Jackson.

TIP 4: Dry your hair before leaving home

Make sure your hair is completely dry before you go outside into the cold air. The cold air will dry out your hair and make it more likely to break.

Give your hair further protection by hiding it away beneath a hat or scarf.   Silk scarves are a great way to protect your hair and your hairstyle should remain pretty much intact underneath it!

TIP 5: Eat plenty of fruit and vegetables

We all know now that we should be eating at least five servings of fruit and vegetables a day for a healthy diet… but did you know that the vitamins in your 5-a-day will also help your hair to become shinier and stronger?
