Top Tips For Healthy Afro Hair During Autumn & Winter

Top Tips for Healthy Hair During Cold Weather from Junior Green Afro Hair Salon Kensington

Now that the nights are closing in and the days are much colder, it’s time to start thinking about ways to protect our hair from the damage that the elements can cause. Here are our top tips that will help you maintain healthy, beautiful hair this season, brought to you by the afro hair experts at Junior Green afro hair salon in Kensington.

Trim Hair to Beat Split Ends In Autumn & Winter

Irrespective of how well you take care of your hair during cold weather, you cannot entirely escape split ends. Central heating can dry hair out, which can disrupt the structure of your hair, whilst damaging the cuticles in the process. Rough cuticles can leave us with dull-looking hair, whilst smooth cuticles reflect the light and make hair appear smoother. Wearing woollen hats in winter can also cause friction, leading to split ends. The surest way to deal with split ends is getting a visiting our West London afro hair salon for your regular haircut.

While wearing protective styles is always a good idea for keeping hair up and out of the way, they work especially well in winter for protecting your hair from weather damage. Snow, sleet, and heat won’t be able to damage your hair as much when you keep it styled in buns, topknots, braids, twists or rolls.

Prevent Dull & Damaged Hair In Colder Weather

It is common for many of us to spend much of our time in centrally heated rooms during the colder months, causing our hair to become dry & brittle. Consistently hydrating hair ensures hair does not dry out and reduces the risk of hair breakage. Replenish lost moisture & treat your hair to a deep conditioning treatment at Junior Green Hair Salon in Kensington. 

Prevent Flaky, Itchy Scalp During Autumn & Winter

In winter, a bad hair day can become a few terrible hair months, especially for afro hair. The colder weather can cause your scalp to become itchy and peel. Whilst this is usually only temporary, it is still a scalp problem that you do not want. 

Apply a natural oil to hair to ensure that it is well hydrated with essential moisture and nutrients. You should make sure that the oil is right for your hair type.

Focus on Your Diet

Vitamins can be obtained naturally from the food you consume, primarily from fruit and vegetables such as oranges, which are a great source of Vitamin C. For healthy hair follicles, opt for foods that are rich in omega 3 fatty acids that promote hair growth by keeping your scalp healthy, such as avocado or salmon. Salmon is also loaded with strong hair supporters like vitamin D and protein.
