Exactly how to keep skin hydrated This Winter
- Dont ignore a dry scalp
With the cooler temperatures causing dryness, you might start to experience flakes, even if you don't have dandruff during the rest of the year. Thankfully, switching to a scalp-balancing shampoo or incorporating our Hair Growth Serum into your routine can help minimize the flakes.
- Switch to hair-hydrating products
It's true: your shampoo can be too good at cleaning your hair. While harsh cleansers like surfactants in shampoos make hair feel squeaky clean, they're also causing further dryness. Now, we know not many of us can’t just reduce our hair wash routine, so why not try our UKLASH Hair Vitamins for healthier hair this season?
- Try a silk pillowcase
Did you know that regular pillowcases can create friction on your hair, leading to dry and damaged ends which only tend to get worse in the winter? So, why not try switching out your regular pillowcase for a silk pillowcase? Better yet, why not try tying your hair up at night with a silk bobble and a sturdy Headband to ensure no flyaways can be irritated by your pillow?
Winter hairstyles perfect for the end of 2022
Looking for staple winter hairstyles for straight hair? The classic plat is back in full force. If you’re anything like us, we mastered our platting skills years ago, and it's time to put them to good use again.
Make a centre part in the middle of your hair and draw your hair back into a low ponytail. Secure tightly and spray some hairspray to set. Run our UKLASH Growth Serum through the ends of your hair to provide support and a glossy texture. Separate into three pieces, plat and secure with a bobble. If you like the wispy look, pull a few strands of the front of your hair out for an effortless winter hairstyle.
Curly hair can be tricky to style for winter, as the cold air and harsh weather can really dry out your curls. If you struggle with this, why not try the classic claw clip style? Yes, it works on curly hair too!
Make a centre part in the middle of your hair and decide which strands you want to leave out at the front. Pull out a few strands near your temples and tuck them behind your ears. Make sure you moisturise the left-out strands to ensure they retain their shape. Grab the rest of your hair at the back of your head, twist in an upward motion and secure it with your favourite claw clip.
Afro hair comes in so many different textures, making it perfect for striking winter hairstyles.
Part your hair in the middle and brush your coils back into a mid-low bun. Slick your edges and parted hair with hair gel to ensure it remains in place. You can either create a low bun, or leave your hair in a pony to create a gorgeous bushy effect. Going to an event? Why not add on some stick-on hair charms or add hair glitter for the festive season.
