Hair Dressers in Durham - Is Your Hair Winter Ready?

The winter months can be notoriously difficult for your hair for a number of reasons. If you live in the UK, where winter weather occurs very strongly, then you’re likely familiar with the toll it takes on your hair. Just like skin, hair needs protection from the cold to remain soft and healthy. Defend your locks throughout the colder months, and reap the rewards when you can showcase beautiful, flowing hair in spring. In this blog we will be discussing some of our top tips for preparing and protecting your hair with Belle Amé, a hair dressers in Durham.

Regular Trims

The recommended interval between hair trimming is four to eight weeks. This is a good way to maintain the health of your hair throughout winter and keep your locks looking fresh. It is suggested that half an inch is taken off the bottom to reduce the opportunity for split-ends and dryness which are very common in colder weather. Visit our team at Belle Amé to book.

Hair Washing

One of the most important and easy tips that we can provide is to not over wash your hair. Although it may be difficult to resist the urge to jump in a nice hot shower after a long day, it may not be the best idea for the health of your hair. Washing your hair too often can damage your scalp which can cause flaking and frizziness. Something that absolutely no one wants. Alternatively, opt for a warm not hot shower and don’t wash your hair excessively.


Wrapping up warm is always a go to for coping with the cold. It is very important to cover your hair during the winter months to protect it from the elements. The dry air, snow, wind, and rain do not mix well with your hair. Lining a hat with silk or satin will help prevent damage from wool, cotton, and other fabrics. You can also fight static by using a dry oil spray. Warmth and protection are a great combination.
