With cold weather comes static, limp strands and split ends. Give your hair some TLC during colder months. Chelsea Callaghan, master colorist at Hopscotch Salon in Greenwich, CT, gives her best advice:
Skip the heat.
“Extra moisture and less heat styling are key. If you do have to heat-style your hair, make sure that you’re using a heat protectant beforehand, such as Kérastase Nectar Thermique,” advises Callaghan.
Do a weekly hair masque.
Callaghan recommends using a high-quality hair masque, such as Kérastase Masquintense, once or twice a week to lock in moisture.
Consider darker color.
Swap out bright blonde highlights for a deeper, richer color to give your hair a break. “If you absolutely can’t give up your bright summer blonde, just make sure you’re caring for it with extra moisturizing products,” says Callaghan. She recommends in-salon express conditioning treatments (like Fusio-Dose by Kérastase) after every color session “to pack in the protein and moisture,” and don’t wash your hair for 24 hours post-color.
Products can help.
Callaghan loves Bumble and BumbleHairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer.“It detangles, defrizzes, protects from heat, softens the hair just perfectly, smells amazing and also has UV protection,” says Callaghan. Use it at the midshafts and ends of your hair to“ add shine and protection from dry cold weather.”
