Winter Haircare 101: Tips & Tricks to Improve Your Winter Hair

Winter has well and truly arrived, bringing with it colder weather, lower humidity, and more time indoors.

While we often think to take extra care of our skin, body and ourselves during winter—with more moisturiser and warming soups—it’s also important to give our hair some extra TLC when the mercury drops. Read on to discover top tips to improve your winter hair game.


Deep condition more often

During the colder, drier months, adding more moisture to your hair is one of the best ways to improve its health! Our top tip is to add a deep conditioner into your routine more frequently. Or, if you don’t currently use a deep conditioner, now is definitely the time to start!


Use a humidifier

Another tip to combat the dryness that winter brings is to use a humidifier. Adding extra moisture to the air (especially if you regularly use your heater) will help your hair to retain more moisture in general. This means less frizz and healthier winter hair.


Avoid heat styling

Winter weather can cause all hair types to become brittle and drier, meaning your heat tools can actually cause more damage than usual. Try easing off the heat this winter and styling with nourishing products instead.


Use a leave-in conditioner

For an extra moisture boost, add a leave-in conditioner to your post-shower routine. HASK’s collection of 5-in-1 Leave-In Sprays also protects against environmental damage and heat tools, with seven different versions to choose from.


Lower your shower temp

While it may be tempting to blast the heat, try turning your shower temperature down—at least when you are rinsing out your conditioner. This will help to seal your hair cuticles, prevent heat damage and help your hair to retain more moisture.


Add hair oils into your routine

Hair oils help to seal your hair cuticles and protect your hair against environmental damage (wind, sun, pollution, etc). They also replenish moisture—of which so much more is lost during the winter months from everyday activities.
