Winter conditions – rules for winter hair care! Fortunately, NiKEL has a solution for everything!

Your hair can become damaged by the dry air in closed, heated rooms and cold air outside, mixed with snow and other forms of precipitation. The most damaging is the stress it suffers from being exposed alternately to one or the other on a daily basis. That is why different rules apply in winter.

Here are a few simple tips to help retain moisture as well as prevent your hair from drying out and being damaged by cold air.

Mild shampoos with natural ingredients

In the winter, it is especially important to use mild shampoos with as many natural ingredients as possible because frequent shampooing removes natural oils from the skin and leads to dry hair and scalp. You will provide extra relief for your hair by applying a dry shampoo and using it to replace at least one hair wash a week.

Avoid using a hairdryer

Just as it is better to use shampoos with natural ingredients, in the winter it is better to let your hair dry naturally. This means not using a hairdryer and leaving the hair to dry on its own. It is clear that hot air can damage hair.

Make sure to use a conditioner

It is always important to use a conditioner, but in winter it becomes essential. The reason is very simple – dry hair is prone to breaking, and conditioner will make it elastic and prevent static electricity buildup.

Wash your hair with lukewarm water

Hot water damages and dries out both the hair and the skin. After washing it in lukewarm water, rinse your hair in cold water to help it retain moisture, which will also give it a special glow.

Regularly trim the ends

Regularly trimming the ends will give hair volume, making you look fresher and feel better.

Use hair care oils

A warm oil treatment before washing is ideal for dry, dull hair.
One of the best remedies for dried-out, lifeless hair, which is often caused by colouring or stress, is a coconut butter mask. Thoroughly rub a few spoons of coconut butter into your hair and wrap it in a warm, damp towel. The heat provides energy that accelerates the absorption of oil by the hair. Wash your hair after half an hour. After this treatment, your hair will be extremely soft and shiny. You can use NiKEL Coconut Butter for this mask! This balm is rich in natural oils and vitamins, which makes it the ideal care product throughout the year.
