The Essential Tips and Tricks to Keep Your Hair Healthy This Winter

Winter is here, and along with cozy sweaters and hot chocolates, it brings its own set of challenges for your hair. The cold, dry air can leave your locks feeling brittle and lackluster. But fear not! With the right tips, tricks, and products, you can keep your hair looking fabulous all winter long.  

Here are our top 10 tips to nail your winter haircare routine, featuring expert advice and product recommendations from our Oz Experts. 


1. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate! 

Winter air tends to be dry, which can strip moisture from your hair. Combat this by using a hydrating shampoo and conditioner like Kevin Murphy Hydrate-Me Wash and Rinse. These products are enriched with moisturising ingredients to nourish your strands and keep them hydrated. 



2. Deep Conditioning Treatments 

Treat yourself to a weekly deep conditioning treatment to restore moisture and elasticity to your hair. Look for a rich mask such as Olaplex No. 3 Hair Perfector to repair damage and strengthen your hair against the harsh winter elements. 



3. Protect Your Hair from Heat Styling 

While it's tempting to crank up the heat during winter, excessive heat styling can lead to dryness and breakage. Use a heat protectant spray like Bondi Boost Heat Protectant Spray before using any hot tools to shield your hair from damage. 



4. Limit Washing Frequency 

Avoid over-washing your hair in winter, as frequent washing can strip away natural oils. Extend time between washes by using a quality dry shampoo, our current fave is the Aveda Shampowder™ Dry Shampoo Light. It refreshes your hair, absorbs excess oil, and adds volume without water, helping to maintain your hair's natural moisture balance. 



5. Use a Leave-In Conditioner 

Add an extra layer of moisture and protection with a leave-in conditioner. Moroccanoil Treatment is perfect for taming frizz and adding shine without weighing your hair down. 



6. Switch to a Silk Pillowcase  

Protect your hair while you sleep by using a Shhh Silk Pink Silk Pillowcase. Unlike cotton, silk reduces friction and static, preventing hair breakage and tangles. This simple switch helps maintain your hairstyle and keeps your hair looking smooth and frizz-free in the morning. 



7. Combat Dandruff Effectively  

During winter, dandruff can become more prevalent due to dry scalp conditions. Combat flakes effectively with a targeted scalp treatment like the Alpha-H Healthy Exfoliating Scalp Treatment. It helps removes build-up and dead skin cells to relieve itching and flaking while leaving your hair soft and manageable. 



8. Avoid Hot Showers 

As tempting as they may be, hot showers can strip your hair of essential oils, leaving it dry and prone to breakage. Opt for lukewarm water instead, and finish with a cool rinse to seal the cuticles and add shine. 


9. Incorporate a Scalp Brush 

Introducing a scalp brush into your haircare routine will help stimulate blood circulation and promote scalp health. Not only does the Oz Hair and Beauty Scalp Brush feel amazing but it also helps to distribute shampoo evenly and exfoliate the scalp, removing buildup and encouraging healthier hair growth. 


10. Stay Hydrated 

Last but not least, remember to hydrate from the inside out. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your hair and scalp hydrated.
