CHICOPEE, Mass. (Mass Appeal) – The winter can wreak havoc on your hair. Hairstylist PJ Hurtado from De Ja Vous Salon in Wilbraham shared tips on how to care for your locks in the wintertime.
Repair Winter Damaged Hair
Leave your conditioner in for an extra 5 minutes in the shower then rinse. This will ensure it penetrates the cortex ( inner most layer of hair)
Before drying put a liquid treatment or styling oil to help protect the cuticle (outer most layer of hair)
Do not go outside with your hair wet.
Use a thermal protectant after the hair is dry and before you use an iron.
Wash your hair less! Our body produces great natural oils that the hair needs.
