Have you ever noticed that your hair gets tangled more easily when your wear a scarf or leave it tucked into your jacket? There are a few reasons for this, notably a combination of friction when the strands rub against the fabric, and the knot-inducing dry air that Old Man Winter bestows upon us every year.
While there isn't much you can do to alter the laws of physics or stop winter in its tracks, you can help your hair to stay as tangle-free as possible with a few simple tricks.
Heaters suck all of the moisture out of the air, meaning that your hair is more likely to become dry and brittle, and thus more prone to tangling.
Take the time to deep condition your hair a couple of times a week, and make sure to use hair oil on the ends to keep them nourished and hydrated between washes.
When styling your hair, make sure it's knot-free right from the very beginning. For blowouts, use L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream to smooth the cuticle and reduce the risk of tangles later on.
To smooth your hair during the day, mist it with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to banish flyaways, add shine and leave it feeling touchably soft.
How to deal with knots when they happen
Knots can't be avoided completely during the winter, so keep a boar bristle brush and a wide-tooth comb on hand to eliminate them when they appear. For really stubborn tangles, work them out in the shower after applying a conditioner.
