Winterize… your hair? Protect your style from a seasonal slump

(Continued)

Culprit: Hats

Condition: Hat head a.k.a. limp locks

Your defense: Texturizing paste and heatless rollers

Hair has a tendency to head south for the winter, thanks mostly to hats and scarves that flatten tresses. Consider using a texturizing paste to add thickness at the roots. Finally, if you're really serious about breathing life back into strands, use three to five Velcro rollers on the front and top parts of your hair in the morning for at least 30 minutes.

Culprit: Heat-styling products

Condition: Split ends

Your defense: Deep conditioning masks and regular trims

Another benefit to washing your hair every-other day is minimizing exposure to hot styling tools like a hairdryer. Treat your mane to a deep-conditioning mask, applied to hair then tucked in a shower cap for overnight, one to two times a month. Stay on top of your scheduled hair trims. Most stylists recommend cutting your ends every 4 to 6 weeks during winter months.

Culprit: No sun

Condition: Dull, lifeless color

Your defense: Professional glaze

Lack of sun can leave your tresses looking lackluster -- and you all washed out. Consider getting a professional glaze treatment, which rejuvenates and brightens hair by adding gloss and a hint of semi-permanent color.
