Winter Hair Tips

As you battle the January blues it can be hard to keep the cold winter weather from affecting more than just your mood! Often it’s your hair that takes the hit from cold weather and central heating so we asked one of our fabulous Millimetre stylists to share her secrets on how to look after your hair in these long winter months.

Jenny has been working in the hair industry for over 25 years and joined Millimetre in May 2017. With extensive knowledge and experience in this industry, she tells us her top tips and products to get strong, lustrous, healthy locks…


1) Don’t wash your hair too much
Nioxin Dry ShampooDuring wintertime, you need to be especially careful about washing your hair too much. The temperature changes from outdoor to indoor can dry out your hair, so over washing and overheating can cause dry, brittle ends.

To avoid too much damage and to keep your hair looking fresh in-between washes, we suggest using a dry shampoo like NIOXIN Instant Fullness Dry Shampoo. Working to absorb excess oils and neutralise odour, it’s powered by Nioxin’s exclusive FUSION FIBRIL technology that works within seconds to build additional body and fullness. Locks are left feeling revitalised and looking denser.


2) Use the right shampoo and conditioner (and why not try a mask as a treat)
It is important to use the right products for your hair type to fight dryness and cold weather. The System Professional Hydrate hair care range is a great choice for most hair types. Working deeply to hydrate hair without weighing it down, its replenishing properties help to restore lost moisture and nutrients to leave hair balanced and incredibly shiny

Thoroughly quench dehydrated hair with the System Professional Hydrate Mask, a moisturising hair mask designed to intensely nourish and hydrate extremely dry and damaged hair.

Top Tip: For best results, use a hair mask twice a month. It will make your hair smooth, healthy and soft.

3) Watch your diet!
Healthy VegetablesEverything we put in our bodies is reflected on the outside. Now that the party season is over you might be feeling the effects of one too many Christmas parties. January is a great time to add some extra vitamins into your diet – Vitamin B6 and B12 are great for healthy hair.

And don’t forget to drink enough water, keep your hair and your body hydrated!


4) Use thermal protection
Sebastian Professional TrilliantUsing heat protection sprays and serums is an excellent way to protect your tresses, especially if you colour your hair.

Try Sebastian Professional Trilliant, a lightweight shine and thermal protection and shimmer spray, with a lovely aroma of melon. Packed full of rock crystal extract, this light-weight spray is designed to gently condition and protect hair, whilst adding body and a sparkling shine.
