First things, first. The weather messes with your hair. You probably know this if you have curly hair in the summer (humidity, amiright?), but the cold also does a number on your strands. The cold outside, plus the heating inside cause your scalp and your hair to become very dry. We spoke to Kérastase hair expert Colin Ford for some cold weather hair tips and—bonus—he’s also sharing winter-proof hairstyles that will work with your warm weather wear.
Moisture, moisture, moisture
If there’s one thing your hair needs during the winter, it’s moisture. “You may find that in the winter, your current shampoo and conditioner might not be as nourishing as you require,” says Ford. “Switch up your conditioner to something that is more nourishing and moisturizing.” As an added dose of hair care, add a mask that will also nourish your scalp and help to prevent any discomfort and irritation caused by the weather. Ford recommends Kérastase Specifique Masque Hydra-Apaisant ($58, available at professional salons).
