Overcome the Long, Cold Winter and Fly-Away Hair

It seems fitting that on the first snow day of the new season in Edmonton, we would be looking to talk to you about hair fly-aways and how they are caused by cold, dry winter weather. With the weather taking a turn for the wintery, our follicles easily get dried out and the energy we put into styling our ‘do every morning can be put to waste if static electricity gets the better of it. Static electricity increases as the weather gets drier, as does one’s natural frizziness. It is important to stay on top of it or else the weather can have your cut and style looking a little more than funny when the toques come off.

As our hair gets drier from the dry air around it absorbing all of its moisture, friction is increased and the rubbing together of your strands causes the static electricity that leads to fly-away hair. Depending on the type of hair you have, you might want to be using products in a pinch that help tame those wild lock. A hair serum can keep hair moisturized and shiny, and will also prevent excess rubbing. Hairspray might also keep things in place but be sure to keep it to a minimum as we never want to get too overzealous with this one. If your hair is on the thicker side, a light-weight pomade could also trap moisture from escaping to the surrounding air. Make sure you only use a little bit though so you don’t have a greasy look.

This might sound a bit silly, but if you are really desperate, you can run an unscented dryer sheet over your hair since getting rid of static is what these inexpensive sheets are designed for! You will only want to use these in a pinch as the rest of the time it is just a good idea to stay preventatively moisturized to protect the long-term health of your hair.

Limiting how often you wash your hair in the winter is, generally speaking, a good idea. Over-shampooing is a recipe for a dried out scalp and dried out locks too so unless you work in a particularly greasy, sweaty or dirty place, you shouldn’t wash your hair every single day – especially not when the weather consistently dips below the freezing point. When you do shampoo, make sure you choose an anti-frizz shampoo if you are prone to fly-aways. These products tend to contain moisturizing agents to provide you with extra safeguards against dryness as well as being free of drying scents or essential oils. Lastly, make sure that every time you shampoo, you also use conditioner as conditioner is the foundation of any hair moisturizing routine to which leave-in conditioning products can also be added, as well as periodic deep-conditioning treatments. When hair is moisturized, it doesn’t make static electricity and you can live through the winter, fly-away-free!

Why You Need a Salon Deep Conditioning Treatment

Deep conditioning treatments seem like one of those salon luxuries that you add-on if you feel like pampering yourself, but they are actually an important and regular part of your hair care routine. In order to keep your hair hydrated and smooth, you need to have deep conditioning treatments done. This is especially true if you regularly apply heat to your hair – which, frankly, most of us do.

While there are a number of professional deep conditioning products you can purchase in the salon and use in your own home, consider booking yourself for a salon appointment on a regular basis and here’s why:

1) We know exactly what we are doing. There are countless articles on the internet about deep conditioning treatments and many of them contradict each other as to what you should use, for how long and what is the best time to do the treatments. Drop those worries in a second and leave this to the professionals. We have been in the industry for so long we can do these things in our sleep so come in, have a cup of tea and leave your hair to the professionals.

2) You will leave looking like a runway model. Deep conditioning treatments usually include a blowout and styling so you can take care of your hair and look fabulous too. You might want to schedule a deep conditioning treatment for special event or date nights where you know you need to look your very best. This will take care of two things at once by repairing damaged hair and feeding it nutrients to protect it in the future, while also getting that lovely hair styled to perfection.

3) It will prep you for your other treatments and hair styling. It might seem like an extra expense but deep conditioning treatments are done not only for the sake of the health of our hair, but also for other hair investments like colour treatments. Weak and dry hair cannot effectively hold colour. By adding moisture back to your hair, it becomes stronger, shinier and can hold colour better. It’s like a big dose of nutrients for your hair.
