The winter months always bring a different weather climate that we need to adjust to. Sure we experience the same seasons every year, but it always tends to catch us a bit off guard at the start of the season. Typically, the winter months bring more wind throughout a lot of the country. The downside to that wind isn’t just the cooler temps, but also the fact that it can wreak major havoc on our hair. Let’s be honest, it’s pretty frustrating to end up with a tangled mess with your hair when you’ve dealt with a lot of wind. To keep you informed, we’re sharing some of the best tips to protect your hair from wind damage.
Keep Your Hair Moisturized
The wind can really put a beating on your hair, causing it to get tossed around and tangled. But that mess is even worse if your hair isn’t well moisturized. Many experts suggest that there’s major importance to making sure that you keep your hair super moisturized (especially as we’re in the dry winter season) to help protect your hair from wind damage. The thing is, typically when your hair gets blown around by the wind it’s more prone to tangles and knots that can cause more damage to your hair, instead keeping your hair moisturized you can make sure that your hair is healthier and when your hair is healthier and more moisturized it’s less likely to develop unruly knots.
Another great way to protect your hair from wind damage is to actually put some hair accessories to good use…to literally protect your hair from the wind altogether. Adding and wearing things like hats and scarves can be a great way to keep your hair down so it’s not so exposed to the wind. In fact, wearing a hat or a scarf over your hair is a super easy way to not have to deal with your hair getting tossed around and damaged because your hair is literally under the accessory. Pretty simple, right? The great news is there are a ton of trendy and fun accessories that you can wear on a regular basis when it’s windy out so you don’t have to worry about the accessory ruining your outfit – in fact, it may make it even better!
Wear Your Hair Up
Of course, if you’re not much of a hat kind of woman you still have options. Wearing your hair tied up and back is going to give you a similar effect as the hat – meaning, tying your hair back helps allow you to not have to worry about your hair getting tossed around and damaged. Try out different hair styles, there are plenty of easy hair styles that won’t take much time, will protect your hair, and still give you great style. Try out some of the trendy braided hair styles, or throwing your hair back in an effortless low bun. The options are endless, and your hair will be well protected.
