Since your hair is much drier during the winter months, it is also prone to getting limp. Your first instinct is to reach for your dryer and then curl it to add volume to your hair. Keep in mind, though, that hot tools can cause even more damage, especially since your hair is moisture-starved.
Keep as much moisture locked into your hair as possible. Opt for a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. For extra hydration, apply leave-in conditioner onto your strands.
Our hair tends to pick up an electrical charge from the dry air when temperature declines; thus, causing our strands to stand up. Frequent use of heat styling tools can also cause static hair since dries out our hair even more. That said, you might want to take a chill on the hot tools usage.
Use hydrating products to keep your hair soft and smooth. Dab a hydrating serum onto the palm of your hands and apply it to your hair.
