It’s no surprise that wintertime can wreak havoc on your hair. With the dry air, comes dry locks that may become weak and brittle and more prone to breakage…plus frizz, flyaways – you get the idea. But, you can easily protect your hair during the winter. Here are our top three tips to keep your hair looking beautiful all winter long (and beyond!).
Tip 1: Invest in the Right Hair Dryer
There are plenty of hair dryers to choose from, but it’s important to choose a hair dryer with technology that can help restore moisture in hair. The Panasonic nanoe™ Hair Dryers do just that!
The secret is in nanoe. Panasonic nanoe™ technology works by using a high voltage charge to capture invisible moisture in the air, generating nano-sized, electrostatic water particles (nanoe™), that are infused into each hair shaft during the blowdrying process. These ultrafine, invisible water particles contain 1,000 times more moisture than regular negative ions. Brilliant!
Although many hair dryers use ionic technology that emits a negative charge to ions on your hair, breaking down water particles into smaller sizes, these are still too big to penetrate the hair cuticle efficiently. Nanoe™, on the other hand, are much smaller and can penetrate the openings in the hair cuticle directly, strengthening and moisturizing from within.
The result? Replenished moisture content and smoother, shinier hair with less frizz. See how our nanoe technology works here.
Tip 2: Make Deep Conditioning a Routine
Sure, you probably already condition each time you shampoo, but a weekly mask can go a long way for the health of your hair. Look for treatments that contain good moisturizing ingredients, like jojoba oil, argan oil or sesame oil, among others, are great for adding moisture; Shea butter is super nourishing and helps hair retain water too. And, you don’t need to use the pricey deep conditioners, a lot of household items can be used as a hair mask too, either coupled with a few ingredients or on their very own (think avocado, honey, coconut oil and more).
Tip 3: Dry Hair Before Going Into the Cold
Raise your hand if you’ve ever left the house with damp hair during the winter (*raises hand*). During the winter, this may be the worst thing you can do to your hair. The dry winter air will suck out any moisture it can get, leaving you with dry hair, that’s way more prone to breakage and split ends. So, make sure your hair is fully dry before stepping into frigid temperatures. Not even a hat will be able to protect those strands if they’re wet!
