Combating Winter: How to Protect Your Hair This Winter

The weather in Boston isn’t a joke. With the Nor’easters going through there, the long winter and all of the snow, they take hair protection seriously! I got a few tips on how to avoid damaging your hair in the winter weather from Alex Safar, master stylist and owner of Salon Acote in Boston.

Thick/Coarse Hair
Thick, coarse hair needs extra help during the winter season. Hydrating your strands will help make them more manageable and soft.

Alex recommends trying MoroccanOil Intense Hydrating Mask to repair dry hair in the cold.

Normal/Medium Hair
Thin to normal hair can easily dry out, especially in the winter. Shampooing your hair can strip the strands of its natural oils, so try washing less. To keep your hair looking great in between washes, Alex likes using Rene Furterer Naturia Dry Shampoo.

Color-Treated Hair
Protecting your hair color from the elements is so important during the winter months. Oribe Shampoo for Beautiful Color is a gentle cleanser and moisture treatment. Oribe Conditioner for Beautiful Color restores and extends your dye while protecting your hair from future damage.
