Top Tips to Keep Your Locks Luscious and Moisturised During the Winter Months
As the winter chill peaks, it brings with it the need for extra care in maintaining healthy and moisturised hair. The cold weather, combined with indoor heating, can strip your locks of essential moisture, leaving them dry, brittle, and prone to damage. 

1. Hydrate from Within
Start by ensuring you stay hydrated. Drinking plenty of water is not only good for your overall health but also reflects positively on your hair’s moisture levels. Hydration from the inside out is the first step to combatting winter dryness.

2. Use a Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner
Switch to a hydrating shampoo and conditioner like the System Professional Hydrate Duo to replenish moisture lost during shampooing. Look for products with ingredients like argan oil or glycerin, which can help lock in moisture and keep your hair soft and manageable. Our best selling Sebastian Dark Oil shampoo and conditioner or System Professional Luxe Oil range are packed with all the ingredients you need for smooth, hydrated locks

3. Limit Washing and Use Lukewarm Water
Frequent washing can strip your hair of its natural oils. Try to wash your hair less often during the winter months, and when you do, opt for lukewarm water instead of hot water, which can be drying.

4. Deep Conditioning Treatments
Introduce deep conditioning treatments into your hair care routine. Treat your hair to a nourishing mask once a week to provide an extra boost of moisture and don’t be mistaken that all hair masks weigh your hair down. For finer locks try out Wella Ultimate Repair conditioner followed by the Ultimate Repair Miracle Hair Rescue, and for normal to thicker hair, the Chris Appleton + Color Wow Money Masque weightless formula is our go to mask for strength, repair and renewed suppleness.

5. Protect Your Hair from the Atmosphere
Wear a cool hat or scarf to shield your hair from harsh winds and cold temperatures. This not only keeps your head warm but also prevents your hair from becoming dry and frizzy from the typical British weather!

6. Avoid Heat Styling
Reduce the use of heated styling tools such as straighteners and curling irons. If you must style your hair, use a heat protectant spray to minimise damage like the Sebastian Trilliant 3-in-1 heat and shine protector or the Eimi Thermal Image Spray.

7. Trim Regularly
Regular trims keep your style looking great and help get rid of split ends, preventing them from traveling up the hair shaft and causing more significant damage. Aim for a trim every 6-8 weeks to keep your hair healthy and vibrant.


With a little extra care and attention, your hair can remain moisturised and healthy throughout the winter months. Implementing these top tips into your hair care routine will help you combat the challenges posed by the colder weather, leaving you with gorgeous, well-nourished locks all season long.
