Now that the nights are drawing near and the days are becoming colder, it’s time to start thinking about ways to protect our hair from the damage that the winter elements can cause. Here are our top tips that will help you maintain healthy, beautiful hair during the colder months, brought to you by the hair experts at Esente Hair Salon in Wimbledon...

The Healthy Winter Hair Care Experts





Beat Split Ends During Winter

No matter how well you take care of your hair during the winter, you cannot entirely escape split ends. Central heating can cause your hair to dry out, disrupting the structure of your hair, causing frizz and damaging the cuticles.

Rough cuticles can leave our hair looking dull and lifeless, whilst smooth cuticles reflect light better and make hair look shinier. Additionally, woollen hats and scarves worn in winter can cause friction and static in our hair, which can lead to split ends. The surest way to deal with split ends and ensure your hair looks healthy throughout the winter is to book in for a regular haircut at Esente Hair Salon in Wimbledon.  

Prevent a Dry Scalp During Winter

As the winter weather creeps in, your scalp can quickly become dry, peeling and feeling itchy. While this is usually only temporary, it is still a problem you do not want to have to face. 

To avoid a tight, dry or itchy scalp, you should ensure that you use targeted products to ensure that it is well hydrated with essential moisture and nutrients. At our hair salon in Wimbledon we stock only the very best hair products which we can match to your hair type, perfect for your everyday hair care and styling needs. Pop in to see an Esente expert anytime for some advice on the best hair care products.

Look After Your Hair With a Healthy Diet

A healthy balanced diet packed full of vitamins and minerals is essential to keep you feeling well, and is important for the health of your hair too. To ensure that you are getting all of the nutrients that you need for healthy hair you should be eating plenty of protein and omega 3 AND drinking at least 2 litres of water per day to hydrate your body, brain and hair. 

Fish like salmon, sardines, and mackerel are packed with healthy omega-3 fatty acids, which your body needs to grow hair and keep it shiny and full. Salmon is loaded with strong hair supporters including vitamin D and protein to promote hair growth by keeping your scalp healthy. 

Prevent Dry, Damaged Hair This Winter

As the weather turns colder, the setting on our thermostat goes in the opposite direction! We spend much of our time during the colder winter months in centrally heated rooms, which can dehydrate our hair, causing it to become brittle and break. 

Consciously hydrating your hair throughout the winter will ensure that it doesn't dry out and can help to reduce the risk of breakage. Treat yourself to a weekly deep conditioning hair treatment to help to replenish the moisture in your hair, ask your Esente stylist for our recommended conditioning treatments or book in for a relaxing in-salon treatment with us!

One of the most important ways to ensure that your hair looks sensational during the winter is to use tools that are specifically designed to protect your locks. We are proud to stock the Manta Healthy Hair Brush at our Wimbledon hair salon. The patented technology of the brush gently frees knots and prevents breakage.
