BigBenIn Britain, we are famous for our harsh winters. We are either battling the sub-zero temperatures, ferocious winds and snow. Or if we’re lucky all at the same time. These weather conditions make it almost impossible to control the frizz and keep your hair hydrated. So here are my top 3 tips to keep your hair hydrated this winter, and a few products worth considering too.

Use leave in conditioner
Leave in conditioner is an amazing and easy way to ensure you keep every ounce of moisture throughout the day. The “OGX Nourishing Coconut Oil Hydrating Mist’ is a cheap and cheerful way to keep your hair hydrated on the go. coconut-milk-anti-breakage-serumIt comes in a handy spray bottle so after you’ve just come in from battling the savage storms, you just grab this out of your bag, give your hair a quick ‘spritz’, and you’ll have refreshed and moisturised hair. Perfect!

Hair Mask
I used to think hair masks were a complete no go for me, the thought of putting eggs in my hair made me feel slightly ill. But when I made a hair mask for the first time, it completely changed my life. hair maskWhenever I feel my hair getting a bit dryer than usual, or I notice that I’m pulling out clumps of hair in the shower, I know it’s time for a hair mask. I use quite a simple one, you can get much more complex ones, but I can barely even pronounce some of the ingredients they use in the more complicated hair masks so I don’t even try to make them.  I use ½ an avocado and 2 egg yolks. You apply this to your wet hair and leave it in for 15-20 minutes, then rinse it out. This really gives your hair a much needed boost of nourishment and it gives your hair a gorgeous shine, and it’s quick and super easy to do!

Avoid heat
We all know that blow drying and straightening your hair dries your hair out. This is especially the case in winter. So, instead of blow drying your hair after a shower, just leave your hair to dry naturally. This way you are not only locking in your natural oils, but you are sparing your hair from the heat which does damage your hair. Also, of course you don’t want frizzy hair, so you straighten it. But there’s nothing wrong with a bit of frizz! Embrace the frizz and own it. I personally love the look of naturally wavy and frizzy hair, it way more natural and it gives your hair movement and volume which is awesome.
