How to keep your hair looking frizz-free and healthy

Cover Media logo Cover Media 17/1/2018 covermg.com

Winter can play havoc on our hair with car heating, radiators and cold air all contributing to dry frizzy hair and split ends.

But you don't hide away your locks under a hat. Read on for five simple tips from the beauty experts at Revlon which will leave you with beautiful, healthy-looking hair in no time.

Deep conditioning

With our hair losing so much more moisture during the colder months, it's a great idea to treat your hair to a weekly deep conditioning treatment. Avocados are rich in vitamins, essential fatty acids, and minerals that will restore lustre to your hair. Mash a ripe avocado with one egg and leave for 20 minutes on your tresses before rinsing with clean water.

Regular trims

Keeping your hair trimmed is super important when it comes to maintaining a healthy look, especially if you're trying to grow it out. In winter, it's more important than ever to book yourself into the hairdressers and have your ends removed. Try not to leave it any longer than eight weeks between cuts to maintain strong healthy locks.

Fight the flakes

Due to the lack of moisture in the air, your scalp can feel drier than usual. Try massaging two teaspoons of warm coconut oil and a teaspoon of lemon juice into your scalp, leaving for 30 minutes and washing out with shampoo and conditioner to replenish the skin.

Keep heat to a minimum

When styling, heat should be kept to a minimum to avoid damaging your already fragile hair. Try the Revlon One Step Hair Dryer and Volumiser, which dries hair in half the time of a normal appliance, and works to control frizz - leaving you with a salon-worthy blow dry from the comfort of your own home.

Maintain your vibrancy

Winter is particularly problematic if you have coloured hair, due to the increase in washes to try and combat dry hair. Try cleansing your strands in lukewarm water rather than hot, and blast at the end with cold water to help close and seal the hair cuticles.
