Raise your hand if you consider beautiful, bouncy hair one of the best natural accessories. I absolutely love the look of healthy, shiny locks, and a good hair day even makes me feel confident enough to skip makeup. However, if I had to pick one season when having a good hair day is problematic for a number of reasons, that would be winter.
Those of you who have fine, flat hair like me are probably familiar with the “dandelion head” or “Einstein hair”. That crazy frizz is commonly caused by static electricity and dry indoor air, which, by the way, makes your skin and nails dry and brittle, as well. If you’re looking for tips on avoiding the dreaded fluff, I have a few tricks up my sleeve that I’d love to share with y’all and they’re all budget-friendly. I bet most of you already have some of these products in your kitchen! but let’s start from the beginning…
Staying hydrated is probably the most important thing on this list because it’s good for your well-being in general. Your skin, nails, and hair are actually the last organs to receive the water you consume, so the amount you drink daily should be increased during the winter months. I didn’t know this until about 2-3 years ago, but ever since I became more conscious about my water intake, I feel like my skin and hair don’t look so lifeless anymore.
As a rule of thumb, every day you need to drink half of your weight in fluid ounces to make sure your body is properly hydrated. Everything over that amount will go to hair, nails, and skin. There are numerous apps for your smartphone [lots of free ones, too!] that will remind you to drink regularly and stay on top of your daily goals. But there’s such thing as overhydration, so just make sure to consume enough salty foods to prevent mineral loss and don’t drink too much at a time.
I bet most of you have heard of hair oils and serums, and many of you own one or more of these. Hair oils work wonders to tame the frizz, but using them on fine hair can be a tricky thing, because our hair type tends to become easily weighed down by too much product. The result: hair that looks greasy and dirty, even if you literally just washed it.
My solution: rub no more than 2-3 drops between wet palms, then quickly run the fingers through your hair while it’s freshly washed and still soaking wet. There are a number of oils that can be used for this, the runnier the better, but grape seed, olive, and coconut seemed to work the best for me personally. Regardless of which one you choose, you will notice the difference immediately once your locks are dry.
I raved about this NOURISHING TREATMENT a few weeks ago, but I wanted to bring it up again here, because it’s seriously a lifesaver during the winter months! Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Strong Conditioning Treatment is one of my favorite Aussie products, and I’ve been loyal to it for a long time now. I get to try a lot of high end hair products, and of course I end up liking a number of them, but in the end I always come back to this one because it’s affordable and very effective. If you want to achieve salon-quality hair on a budget, this is seriously the best product for the task. I feel like it will work for any hair type, whether it’s fine and flat or coarse and thick, and it does a beautiful job making sure the strands look smooth, shiny, and nourished without weighing them down.
