Baby, It’s Cold Outside

Winter can be a magical time of year. With the holiday lights, festive decorations, and family celebrations, there is much to enjoy. We all want to look our best, but sometimes winter hair problems can be a real downer on all the fun! Don’t let Santa catch you crying and pouting over winter hair drama… we have all the tips and products to keep your hair shining this time of year! 

Dry Scalp

Much like your skin, your scalp can become dry and itchy in the winter.   The buildup of dry skin can lead to a tight scalp and result in flaking.  Over time as this dry, flaky skin increases, dandruff, itchiness, and scalp sensitivity will occur.  Scalp care is extremely important in the winter.  Shampoo is meant to wash hair so you will need to target your scalp more specifically.  Aveda has an entire line devoted to scalp care.  Scalp Benefits is a shampoo and conditioner that balances hair and scalp needs.  It can help to cleanse the scalp of any irritants that may be drying it out.  To really target the dry scalp you may be experiencing this winter, try out Aveda Pramasana, which includes an exfoliating brush and purifying scalp cleanser.  Dry brushing will start the process by exfoliating the scalp to loosen the build-up and impurities, followed by a gentle cleanser to purify and remove pollution.  Prepare to feel invigorated and refreshed as you leave that dry, itchy scalp behind. 

Frizz and Split Ends

The dryness of winter is also to blame for split ends and frizzy locks.  It can be hard enough with a lack of humidity and changing seasons, but then add in hats, scarves, and sweaters for warmth…it’s a battlefield for healthy hair.  When hair is dry and dehydrated, it looks straw-like and frizzy. Friction then causes even more problems increasing the frizz!  Hair that once looked brilliant and shiny can quickly become dull and lackluster in the winter.  Smooth infusion is all you need to get back on track.  This anti-frizz line has the perfect plant-powered technology to create smoother, sleeker hair in just one use.  With all-natural ingredients, you will be able to smooth and condition from the cuticles for softness and shine. 


Winter wardrobe may also add to another common winter hair complaint, tangles!  The hair gets caught in all the layers, while extra static means by the end of the day, you are one matted, tangled mess.  A great new hairstyle is a huge help when dealing with tangles and what better time to try something new.  You can also try keeping your hair up and out of the way with a high ponytail or side braid. However, our best solution is conditioner! Rinse-out and leave-in conditioner can help with knots and conditioning treatment in the salon can be a real treat.  Aveda’s Nutriplenish line has everything you need.  These 100% vegan formulas will nourish and restore the softness to dry hair.  Products range from leave-in conditioners, to light moisturizers, to deep moisture and even a masque. Some of these products are even grouped in sets and are available as gifts.
