1. Use as little heat as possible. Too much heat on its own can cause hair damage, but paired with the winter weather, it’s a recipe for the perfect disaster. Straightening and blow drying weakens your hair, so minimize your use of heat.

2. Cut your split ends. Now, you should do this at least twice a year regardless of season, but if haven’t, take this opportunity to do so. Split ends cause breakage, winter causes dry hair, without split ends there is less chance for unnecessary breakage.

3. Keep your hair hydrated and moisturized. You could use warm water as a spray, apply hair food and any other hair products that hydrate and moisture your hair.

4. Protective styles are important. Especially in winter because the conditions are so harsh, save yourself the effort and damage and put your hair in any protective style, just be careful not to keep it in for too long because your hair will loose moisture.

5. Don’t wash your hair often. If you wash your hair once a week, change it up to twice a month because washing it regularly strips it off its natural oils and makes it prone to damage.

6. Be careful of head wraps and beanies. While they will keep you warm, they might cause friction with your hair which will make your hair weaker, and your hair might get caught in the material and break. If you’re using them, try to have a silk something covering your hair first.
