Protective Hair Styling for Afro Hair 

While wearing protective styles is always a good idea for keeping hair tidy, they work especially well in winter for protecting your hair from cold weather damage. Snow, wind and heat won’t be able to damage your hair as much when you keep it protectively styled in buns, topknots, braids, twists or rolls.

Beat Split Ends at Top London Afro Hair Salon

You cannot fully escape split ends, but during the winter your hair is more at risk of breaking. Central heating can dry hair out, which can disrupt the structure of your hair, whilst damaging the cuticles in the process. Rough cuticles can leave us with dull-looking hair, whilst smooth cuticles reflect the light and make hair appear smoother.

Wearing woollen hats in winter can also cause damage to afro hair, causing breakage and split ends. The best way to deal with split ends is getting a regular haircut at our London afro hair salon.

Prevent Itchy, Flaky Scalp During Colder Months

During the colder months, a bad hair day can cause huge problems, especially for afro hair. The colder weather can cause your scalp to become dry, itchy and it can start to peel. Whilst this issue is usually temporary, it is still an unhealthy scalp problem that you do not want. 

Apply a natural oil to your hair and scalp to ensure that it is well hydrated with essential moisture and nutrients, making sure that the oil is right for your hair type. Pop into our Edmonton afro hair salon for some advice on the best afro hair care products.

Focus on a Healthy Balanced Diet

The diet that you follow plays a significant role in promoting healthy hair. Ensure your diet gives you all the minerals and vitamins your hair needs by eating plenty of protein and omega 3.

Make sure that your diet includes lots of fruit & vegetables, which are packed with nutrients and vitamins. For healthy hair follicles, consume foods that are rich in omega 3 fatty acids that promote hair growth by keeping your scalp healthy, such as seeds, avocado or salmon. Salmon is loaded with strong hair supporters like vitamin D and protein to combat hair damage.

Prevent Dull, Damaged Hair In Autumn & Winter

During the colder months, most rooms indoors are centrally heated, causing our hair to become dry & brittle. Make sure that your hair stays hydrated, ensuring hair does not dry out and reducing the risk of hair breakage. Infuse your hair with moisture & treat your hair to a deep conditioning treatment at Afrotherapy Hair Salon in Edmonton, London.
