For those of us that can’t avoid winter by escaping to warmer climes, hair winter blues are a harsh reality. If you have noticed that during the cold winter months, your usual hair care regimes are not having the usual rejuvenating effect on your hair, then you are suffering from ‘hair winter blues’ caused by the cold temperature. The dramatic drop in temperature from summer to winter can cause havoc with our hair, resulting in frizziness, dryness, dehydration, split ends and static hair. Also, because outside temperatures are so cold and dry and inside temperatures are so warm (the central heating cranked up), your hair is consistently exposed to dramatic changes in temperature, causing the moisture to be zapped from your hair aggravating the drying effects of winter.
5 Tips to Avoid Hair Winter Blues
- Wash Your Hair in Lukewarm Water
Washing your hair in hot water might seem appealing during cold winters but lukewarm water is best because it protects your hair and scalp from being completely stripped of its natural oils.
- Moisturise Your Hair Immediately After You Have Washed It
Damp hair seals in the moisture more than dry hair, so this will keep your hair hydrated, soft and supple.
- Protect Your Hair from Heat Damage – Avoid Blow Dries
The dry cold winter months makes your hair brittle and blow drying your hair during this season causes heat damage, aggravating the damage caused by the harsh, cold climate. If blow dries or any other form of heat styling are an absolute must, then use a heat protecting spray every time you blow dry, straighten or curl your hair.
- Get Regular Trims
Your hair is more prone to split ends during the winter months, so regular trims are vital, to keep hair healthy, preventing damage and breakage.

- Stay Hydrated
Because the winter has a drying, dehydrating effect on your hair, it is important to keep your hair hydrated and you can do that by drinking lots of water and washing your hair frequently.
