Trim Hair Regularly to Beat Split Ends

On average hair grows around half an inch every four weeks but some people find their hair grows faster during the winter. However, all hair, whatever length, needs regular trimming to keep split ends at bay. Long and coloured hair is most prone to splitting, as the older hair gets – the more likely it is to break. Trimming short hair every five to six weeks is ideal and seven to nine weeks for longer styles.

Prevent Dry, Damaged Hair In Winter

To keep your hair glossy and healthy during winter it is important to prevent dryness. You can achieve fabulous looking hair all year long by purchasing a wide variety of hair care products from our hair salons.

With a Matrix Bond Ultim8 treatment, you can ensure your hair gets the repair it needs.  After just one treatment, Bond Ultim8 can dramatically improve your hair’s condition.  It can be applied during the hair colouring process to eliminate hair breakage on even the most over-processed hair. It is designed to repair the hair’s structure which can be broken during the permanent hair colouring and lightening process and through years of heat and environmental damage.

Condition Hair Regularly During Winter

If your tresses feel dry, use plenty of good-quality conditioner to restore their natural moisture and glossiness. This will also help deal with annoying early morning hair tangles. Conditioner should be gently massaged into dry hair and worked upwards towards the roots. We stock the full range of luxurious Balmain Haircare products to give you manageable soft, shiny, healthy-looking hair. 

Improve Your Hair From The Inside With a Balanced Diet

Make sure that this winter you fuel your body with the correct balance of nutrients and minerals to ensure your hair has all that it needs to remain shiny, lustrous and strong. Healthy hair foods can help you achieve better, stronger, shinier and thicker hair from the inside out. By following a healthy, balanced eating plan, get hair that looks and feels in great condition, glossy & resilient, a mane you have always dreamed of.

Preventing a Dry & Flaky Scalp

It is important to protect your hair from the cold weather, as your hair risks breakage when it becomes too dry and cold. You can try wearing a hat, although this may lead to scalp irritation or breakage. This can further cause your scalp to peel and become itchy. If you find that your scalp becomes too itchy, speak to your REEDS stylist about Biolage R.A.W.  This range of products, available in our salons, contains many natural ingredients packed full of anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-bacterial agents to balance your hair and promote a healthy scalp.  Your hair will feel silky soft, smooth and shiny, plus it can help to tame unruly or frizzy hair and protect against heat damage from blow-drying and friction caused by brushing and headwear.
