Why It May Be More Important to Get A Conditioning Treatment In The Winter.

You are probably used to getting the occasional conditioning treatment in the summertime. Rising temperatures mean that  the hot summer rays are more likely to damage your hair and lighten your fresh salon color, but did you know that it may be even more important to get a conditioning treatment in the winter?

Anyone who has spent the season in Arizona knows that our winters are incredibly hard on your skin. Guess what? It is hard on your hair too. Arizona winters are characterized by extremely dry weather and fluctuating temperatures which can also be true for many parts of the country. This is a recipe for disaster when it comes to your precious  locks and it arrives just in time for your holiday photos. In the valley of the sun these conditions are exacerbated by the simple fact that it is generally freakin beautiful outside. We do more hiking, golfing, and other outdoor activities. The suns rays, though less intense, are more likely to do damage. 

So what’s a girl to do?

The dry weather this holiday is the perfect excuse to pamper yourself and your hair. Try giving yourself the gift of a conditioning treatment at your next salon appointment. It’s the most wonderful time of year and you deserve it. My salon offers a holiday peppermint and pine conditioning treatment. The Peppermint Shampoo and scrub invigorates, lifts of buildup and impurities to prepare the hair for deep hydration:  The Pine conditioning treatment heals, hydrates and repairs dry and damaged hair. 

Homecare options include upgradeing your regular conditioner to a more hydrating formula. Try Purology Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner. The peppermint aromatherapy will wake you up and make your holiday extra special. 

Another idea is to add a Leave-in-Conditioner to your daily routine. I recommend Bumble and bumble Hairdressers oil Primer and Pre-styler. It’s made with a blend of six different oils that hydrate the hair and protect it from heat and UV exposure. 

Fish oil is fantastic for your hair, skin, brain, and heart. Why not eat low murcury fish twice a week and take a fish oil suppliment? Increasing your water intake can make a huge difference as well. I am not a Doctor so it is important to speak with your physician before making any changes to your diet or starting any new supplements.
