Winter is not your hair’s best friend. The wind, the rain, central heating, and so on can take it’s toll on your tresses. But fear not, because there are ways to keep your hair looking fabulous this Christmas, apart from making sure to carry a brolly when it downpours.
Hairdresser, Lorraine Vaillant, gives us her top tips to keep your hair glossy and gorgeous.
“An age-old tip that works – After washing your hair, rinse with diluted lemon juice to seal the outer cuticle of the hair shaft. The condition of this outer layer indicates the state of the hair’s health. Lemon juice is particularly beneficial for those with greasy hair. Just makes sure you apply it to the roots.”
“Hot oil treatments are a treat for dry, damaged hair. Why not try Vo5 Give Me Moisture Hot Oil Pack? Moroccan oil is wonderful, and there’s no need to heat it up, just apply it directly to dry or damp hair. Using a natural vegetable hair dye like Henna can provide a great conditioning treatment.”
“I’ve got naturally curly hair and I use John Frieda’s Frizz Ease, Curl Reviver Styling Mousse to calm down it down and boost shine. This product is also a favourite among my curly-haired clients. Even if you are growing your hair, regular trims are necessary to keep your hair in optimum condition. Chopping off split ends is the only way to get rid of them!”
“Investing in a quality pair of ceramic straighteners is worth it. They are a must have tool to achieve that super-sleek, shiny look, whether you choose to style it poker straight or not. I’ve test many straighteners and I have to say GHDs are the best. Blow dry your hair down the hair shaft. This will achieve a smoother finish.”
