Winter’s cold and brittle days not only impact your skin but they can lead to wild flyaway hair. Follow our easy steps to help you combat the Winter chill.
Work with your hair not against it
If it’s pouring outside and straightening your hair takes too much effort, now is not the time to fight it. Instead embrace your natural texture. If it’s curly, try pulling it into an on-trend messy updo, while straight-haired girls look great with a simple pony.
Stop any brittleness
The healthier the hair, the better it will hold up in the rain and wind. The easiest way to keep your strands in good condition is with hydration. Switch to a moisturising shampoo and conditioner, and use a rich treatment at least once a week.

Beat static frizz
Because dry hair is more prone to static frizz, a leave-in conditioning treatment or oil can help strands stay smooth. Try styling products with silicone, which seals the hair cuticle so water can’t get inside. For flyaways, spray hairspray onto a brush and smooth over the top of any naughty bits – it’s old-fashioned but it works.

Stop hair going limp
If your hair tends to fall flat, try using a volumising spray before you blow-dry to help create body. Even if your hair is clean, you can blast roots with a dry shampoo to add texture.
