How to prevent the bird’s nest look now that the cold weather has arrived…
You know the feeling, you’ve blow-dried your hair perfectly, and you’re ready to face the day, but within five minutes of leaving the house, it’s tangled, frizzy, and lost all its bounce!
Well, fear not. Our in-house hairdresser, Kerry Capewell has a few tips to help you survive the season.
Number one on her list is a reminder always to make sure your hair is completely dry before you leave the house.
“As tempting as it is, when we’re rushing around trying to get everything done, it’s important to thoroughly dry your hair before you expose it to the elements,” she said.
“Remember, cold makes things expand; think of your house pipes bursting, and that’s basically what can happen to your hair shaft. This increases the risk of hair breakage, rough cuticles, and even colour fade.”
Invest in a leave-in conditioner before you use the dryer, and you won’t need to worry about damaging your hair, but it’s always a good idea to try to restrict your use of heated styling tools to special occasions.
Naturtint Anti-Ageing CC Cream is perfect for protecting your hair. Formulated with natural and organic plant and seed oils and extracts, it helps combat the main signs of hair ageing and protect your hair from damage, heat, UV, and pollution. Your hair’s natural keratin is restored, leaving it healthy and full of shine. It will also help to prevent colour fade caused by exposure to harsh elements.
If you are a fan of this season’s super-cute bobble hats, then look for one with a silk or satin lining.
Kerry explains why: “Wool, acrylics, and cotton can all contribute to split ends, so it’s worth either hunting out a hat with a softer lining, silk is perfect, or failing that you could always wear a thin silk scarf underneath to help keep your hair looking perfect.
“The natural properties of silk, including its smooth surface, can help reduce friction on your hair, which often causes damage, like split ends and tangled strands.”
But, if you do find yourself suffering from the dreaded “hat hair,” then pull out your favourite dry shampoo to add back the volume and bounce. Simply spray it at the roots and fluff your hair up a little with your fingers.
Try Naturtint Dry Shampoo, formulated with natural ingredients that freshen the hair while adding texture and volume. It contains oat extract, packed with lipids and ceramides to strengthen and moisturise your hair and scalp. Plus, rice and barley extracts will absorb excess oil.
It’s easy to use and fast-acting, so your hair is left looking soft, smooth, and manageable.
And, as you would expect from Naturtint, it’s non-aerosol and uses 100% natural ingredients.
It’s worth investing in an intense moisturising shampoo to give your hair the hydration boost it needs in colder weather and help combat the dreaded static frizz!
Kerry said: “There’s nothing worse than static hair but relax; there are many ways to deal with the problem. One of the main reasons our hair suffers from it is that it’s dehydrated.
“First of all, try swapping your usual shampoo for one that is extra moisturising for dry hair and invest in a conditioning mask; these will help to counter the dehydration caused by indoor heating and cold winter winds.”
