The festive season is in full swing. All those fun holiday parties are the perfect excuse to glam it up, rock that new glittery sweater and wear your hair all curled up, straightened down or twisted around. It’s a blast - if only by the end of it your shiny and soft hair hadn’t turned into dull, dry straw! Couldn’t we just avoid that for once?
Yes, it's possible. Here are three simple tricks to avoid straw head and keep your hair soft and shiny all through the entire festive season… and beyond:
Condition, Condition, Condition
Baby, it’s cold outside… The freezing winter weather loves to suck all the moisture out of your hair. And it’s not the only enemy you have to deal with at this time of the year. The heat from styling tools is another moisture-sucker. Using conditioner every single time you wash your hair will only take you so far.
Go the extra mile and use a protein treatment a couple of times a month. Protein treatments like our Pure Protein Filler Treatment contain the same protein hair is made of and gives that life-giving conditioner something to hold on to. Keratin strengthens weak hair, softens dull hair and fixes heat damaged hair. It’s a true miracle worker!
Use Heat Protectants
Never let a hair curler or straightener near your locks before you’ve put on heat protectants. The heat is just gonna fry them! From split ends to breakage and dryness, there’s no end to the damage high temperatures can wreak on your hair.
You can use cream, spray or gel heat protectants or go down the natural route - that’s our fave way, too! Moroccan Organic Argan Oil is a very moisturizing oil that keeps your hair safe from heat and gives it plenty of shine, too!
Give It A Break
I get it, you want to rock those waves or that sleek and straight look every night. But know this; using heated styling tools every single day will literally kill your hair.
Why not try a chic chignon (it's a hair bun), or don a sparkling hair barrette? There are so many ways to glam up your hair without heat. Give your hair a break and let your imagination run wild!
Who said the holidays must destroy your hair?
