Putting the spring back ahead of the season change
Gusty cold winds, woollen beanies, scratchy blankets and indoor heating, not to mention the unprecedented rainfall – it’s all been wreaking havoc on our hair follicles of late. But, as we prepare to farewell winter, Enigma Hair and Body Newcastle director Kate Brown says there are ways we can get a head start on the next season.
When you’re putting together your spring clean list, here’s her top three tips for a great head of hair as you come out of hibernation.
- Invest in a silk pillowcase
Cotton pillowcases can snag and tear your hair while you toss and turn, which causes split ends. It draws moisture from the hair, causing it to become dehydrated and break which causes frizz. The silky surface of a silk pillowcase allows your strands to glide smoothly no matter how rough you sleep. It also helps to retain moisture and keep your locks hydrated.
- Cheat root lift
After you wash your hair use a hair oil and a good anti-gravity spray. Begin by blow drying your hair upside down. Once your hair is dry (and still upside down) blast your hair with cool air until it feels cool to the touch. This will set the style in place and will give you an instant root lift.
- Dry shampoo
Most people don’t know that you should actually use dry shampoo before your hair gets oily. After washing and blow drying your hair, use dry shampoo on your roots. Continue to use dry shampoo each day before you wash your hair again – you will be surprised at how much volume and bounce your hair will have.
