While the days may be getting longer, winter is still very much upon us. Cold winter temperatures often dry our hair out, creating static and frizz. Luckily, from quick fixes to more intense measures, we have some ways to help you calm the winter frizz and have smooth silky hair all year long!
Wash your hair less
When you wash your hair, the naturally produced oils are washed from the hair. Washing your hair less will allow those natural oils to work their way back into the hair which will calm frizz and help dryness.
Brush your hair often
Along with washing your hair less frequently, thoroughly brushing it will help to distribute oils in your hair. If you shy away from washing your hair less because your roots get oily, you may need to brush your hair more often. This will redistribute the oil from your roots, and help with the frizz and dryness at the same time.
While washing your hair will strip the natural oils, conditioner helps to replenish moisture to the hair. Living Proof’s No Frizz and Kevin Murphy’s Hydrate Me lines are essentials for fighting dryness and they are light enough for daily use. The Living Proof No Frizz line will also help fight frizz.

Sometimes using extra conditioner just won’t cut it. While they are too heavy for everyday use, moisture masques are great as a weekly treatment to restore moisture to dry, damaged hair. These treatments are often left on the hair for 5-15 minutes before rinsing, so they are easy to throw on before you get in the shower! Living Proof’s Restore Hair Masque and Kevin Murphy’s Born Again are both fantastic options.

After you get out of the shower, you can add extra moisture to your hair with the help of a few products. There are different products for every hair type, but Living Proof’s Nourishing Styler (cream for thicker hair or spray for finer hair) and Kevin Murphy’s Smooth Again are good go-to products.
