Anyone else suffering with that sweet Winter frizz-chic hairstyle? I start my day with freshly washed, styled hair and by the time I get into work, I look like I’ve stuck my finger in a plug.
The glossy purple packaging certainly looks great in the bathroom. After blow-drying my hair, it definitely looked silky and smooth when using the John Frieda Frizz Ease products, but by the time I’d got to work in the morning, it had frizzed back up in this weather. So my hair did feel looked after and looked smooth as promised and I’d buy the products again because of that, I just don’t think we can ever expect miracles from it, such as a utopian frizz-free life.
However, I have found some ways to keep my hair looking semi-decent during this crazy British weather! Don’t expect to see it every day though!
Keeping your hair in top condition can go a long way to helping fight the frizz and keeping it looking great, whatever the weather. I always get compliments on the condition of my hair by hairdressers so hopefully this will help some of you too.
How to look after your hair in Winter
Use conditioner. Likely obvious, but just in case. You only need to condition from the mid-length to the ends of your hair.
Use a hair mask once a week. It’s like walking out of a salon each time. Most that I’ve tried are fine, I don’t have a favourite – yet.
Air dry your hair until 90% dry. Blow-drying can damage your hair so the minimum time spent doing so is best. Blow-dry for the last 10% of drying time needed.
Use a lower heat when blow-drying. High heat = high damage. Take it down a notch and you’ll definitely feel the benefit.
Use heat spray. Always protect your hair when using heat on it. It’s a tiny extra effort that really helps look after it.
Use a finishing product. My favourites are Percy & Reed Finishing Polish and John Frieda Frizz Ease Shine Spray.
Wear a low pony/bun. If you’re getting nowhere, or you’re in a rush, pull your hair into a low pony or bun. Make sure your hair is smoothed down rather than up like in a high pony otherwise the wind will make everything stand on end.
Give your hair a break. While I advise using product when needed, don’t forget to give your hair a day off sometimes. Everyday products and heat can also have adverse effects on the condition of your locks. We all need a break sometimes!
Wear a hat. I don’t wear hats often, but have finally found a big woolly hat that I love and when taking it off, find I don’t have hat hair, but flat hair! It’s my new go-to!
These few small changes to my usual shampoo, condition, and go ‘routine’ have definitely helped me look more like a normal person than a frizz beast this Winter.
