Protect Your Hair From Winter | Simple Changes to Make

protect hair from winterWatch out! The cold winter weather is coming to strip your hair of moisture. You’re going to need to know how you can protect your hair from winter wildness.


Doesn’t only the sun dry up hair?


The air is very dry during the winter and it wants the moisture from your hair.


Do you notice how your hair becomes all brittle once the temperature starts to drop? When your hair strands gets dried out, breakage occurs and causes your whole head to look frizzy-bad. Winter shows no mercy.

You can’t just hide out in your house all winter… unless you work at home like I do. So learn how to protect your hair from winter weather so you won’t be a victim.


What you should do to protect your hair from winter breakage:


Don’t you dare go outside with wet hair. If it’s cold enough, your hair strands could literally freeze and break. If your hair takes too long to dry, you can read an article on how to dry it quicker.



♦ Switch it up from fashionable hats to cute up-dos/braids. Touching or playing with brittle hair can cause intense breakage. Getting it up or covered is the way to go.

Hats will protect your hair from the elements and look adorable while doing it.

Cute up-dos and braids are an easy way to style your hair and not have to mess with it anymore that day.

Brush your hair with a Morrocco Method boar bristle brush every night, like I do. These brushes stimulate the scalp by increasing blood flow and evenly moisturize your hair with the sebum secreted. There are two sizes of these brushes. It’s not necessary to order the bigger size unless you really want it; the cheapest one is fine. If you decide to order a brush, add in a scalp massager too for extra scalp stimulation. (Both of these also help your hair grow faster)

♦ You’re going to need to moisturize your hair on the inside and the outside, with these three ways:

1. Try making it a goal to drink 8 glasses of water a day. Staying hydrated inside is very beneficial to your hair.



2. Look into some pre-poo coconut oil deep conditioning treatments.

3. Shampoo and condition your hair with Acure Organics products. They are everything you could ask for in a shampoo and conditioner, plus more. Acure Organics products are free of all the bad things you don’t want touching your delicate hair.

♦ It would be a good idea to start using a leave-in conditioner if you already don’t. Only use a small amount if your hair is thin or gets oily quick like mine.



You should now be an expert on how to protect your hair from winter weather.

  1. First let me start by saying I know nothing about hair care. Finding your site was very informative and increased my understanding of the issue 100%. My wife is always talking about her hair and I really never understand what shes saying. This site has given me a nice view of her problem. Thanks again.

    • Darren,

      You’re welcome. It must be hard for men to understand what problems women go through. It isn’t easy taking care of our hair!

  2. Hello Gina,

    Great article. You have a special niche as well as a lot of competitors surrounding you, but you have a unique layout and amazing helpful tips. My wife tried the coconut oil, she purchased it from Thailand and she was very happy with the results. I shared this article with her so she can check out the other tips. Keep the good work.

    • Ehab,

      Thanks for the compliments on my website.

      I’m glad your wife likes using coconut oil, it’s such a great natural product.

  3. Hi Gina, thanks for the tips even though I am a guy. I believe many men also would like to know how to take care of the scalp to prevent hair loss?

    I have an oily scalp and had hair loss recently. I had therefore switched to using caffeine shampoo and hair tonic for past 2 months. Had not seen any positive results.

    Do you think I can reverse the situation to make my hair grow again or I am just preventing hair fall?

  4. Hi Gina,

    Lots of neat tips there. My favourite that I do myself if the hat and scarf, which is nice and cosy. Also, super-easy 🙂

    The link to faster hair drying was interesting too. The other thing to watch out with going outside in winter with wet hair is hypothermia! Not recommended, so your tips are really handy.

    I guess I do some similar things with a towel, i.e. extract as much water out as possible by careful squeezing but without damaging the hair by trying to scrub it dry.


    • Robert,

      Yes, a hat and scarf are easy ways to protect your hair.

      What you do is the perfect way to dry it. I’m glad you know not to scrub your hair with a towel.

  5. Hi Gina, I love your tips and the easy mode that you have presented them. They can also be applied on kinky hair. Thanks and keep it up.

  6. Hi Gina,

    Great article, especially for me living in Canada – our winters in Alberta are brutal!! These are very helpful tips – things that you don’t necessarily think of, but make total sense and are well worth following!!

    I do have a question. I never know what shampoo / conditioner is best for colored hair – I use department store products but there are so many to choose from. Which brands would you recommend most?

    Thanks for the help!

    • Anna,

      I’m so glad I could help.

      For shampoo and conditioner I recommend the brand Just Natural. That link has some of their products but if you click to go on their website they have more options to choose from including specifically made ‘color care’ shampoo and conditioner.
