How to Fight Winter Frizz

I love Winter. It brings Holiday Cheer, time with friends and family and beautiful snowy landscapes. If I could curl up by my fireplace al day long with a hot toddy, life would just be perfect! But I digress, there is just one thing that really isn’t so great about this time of year, and that is the extra FRIZZ in my hair!
The dryness in the air, especially inside where heaters are blazing, can be blamed for all this mess. Luckily, I have prepared some of my best frizz fighting tips for winter to share with you today!
One of the very first things you can do is invest in a good humidifier for the house. When your heat is on most of the time the air inside gets really dry. This will not only cause your hair to dry up and frizz, it can also cause dry sinus and skin.

Conditioning is key! I always use more conditioner in the winter, like a leave in or deep conditioner. This helps add the moisture back in that has been taken away by Jack Frost. Coppola makes a great Vanilla Bean Deep Conditioner that is perfect for users of the Keratin Treatment.
I love to wear cute hat and scarves when it’s chilly outside, but that always leaves me with a brillo pad on top of my head once I step inside! My trick? I simply step into the ladies room and lightly dampen my hair to add the moisture back and smooth it back out. Don’t drench yourself, just a sprinkle. A misting bottle works really well too. Keep one at your desk if you can.
One more thing I have for you involves drying your hair after you have washed it, which by the way you do not need to do everyday in the winter. Once I am out, I NEVER rub my head or hair with the towel. This causes more frizz! Use a nice fluffy towel and gently blot water from your hair. Also, and I shouldn’t have to tell you, never go out in the frost with wet hair. It will freeze and can cause breakage, splitties and all kinds of crazy frizz!
Well, there you have it, gals! My tricks for keeping this head of hair as smooth as possible during these cold times. I think I am going to go and curl up by that fire now!
