How to Amp Up Your Winter Hair Care Routine!
Peter Beckett, the celebrity/editorial stylist, breaks down his cold-weather haircare essentials.

If you enjoyed our winter skincare routine, keep reading to maintain those #hairgoals all year long. And, yes, you guessed it, hydration is equally essential for your skin and your hair, so try to go for products that offer that desired boost. Hair expert and celebrity/editorial stylist Peter Beckett breaks down his haircare essentials here for creating the ultimate cold-weather hair routine. 

Is hair more prone to damage during the cooler months?

During winter months, hair is more prone to damage due to being in cold weather and heating (such as dry air). Also, we tend not to let our hair air dry as much, relying on heat styling more.  

What are your top products for keeping hair hydrated during this time?

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer is the go-to for winter that tick all the boxes. Perfect for all hair types, this pre-shampoo treatment hydrates and strengthens the hair whilst giving shine and bounce.

Color Wow Dream Cocktail – Coconut Infused is one of my favourite leave-in treatments to hydrate and silken hair – it's the perfect pre-treatment solution before styling.

Winter hair essentials?

The elephant in the room in winter is that flaky scalp. The Philip Kingsley Flaky Itchy Scalp range is a must-do routine to control any of those scalp problems throughout the winter months. The range has a shampoo, conditioner, scalp toner, and the first-of-its-kind dry shampoo explicitly made for flaky, itchy scalps. It has aloe vera to relieve itchiness and irritation and a range of other great ingredients to target the cause of dandruff, as it absorbs excess oil and sebum. And it's super light, so it doesn't weigh the hair down.  

Are there any easy go-to styling tips for chic hair when it's pouring outside?

A classic sleek pony at the nape is a timeless and chic look for wet weather. Because it's tucked in tight and clean, it is something that can easily travel under a coat.

How do you escape frizzy hair from rain and humidity?

The answer to frizzy hair is Color Wow Dream Coat Supernatural Spray. This has a hydrophobic matrix technology that is not only weightless but can repel moisture and lasts for up 3-4 shampoos in the hair. It's the key to that icon, glass-like, silky straight hair without all of the heavy products – no nasties, just brilliant, shiny chic hair.

What are some winter hair care trends we can easily replicate at home?

As far as hair care trends go during winter, it's about being able to achieve results without having to go through unnecessary hair washing. I mean, who wants to have wet hair in winter more often?!

A way around this is to invest in Color Wow One Minute Transformation. This is rich in Avocado Oil and Omega 3's, which instantly absorb into the hair, nourishing and transforming the texture of the hair into being controllable and more polished. 

One Minute Transformation is perfect for plaiting into hair and leaving overnight for a clean, natural tousle. Or I often apply a small amount and brush through for a blow-dry finish without the heat to tame frizz and add hydration to the hair.

Besides Peter's expert recommendations, the below are a round-up with some of the picks we think you need to add to your winter hair regimen.

Gisou Honey Infused Scalp Treatment

If I think about hair goals, the first person that comes to mind is Negin Mirsalehi, Gisou's founder. So, it’s no wonder why their oh-so-loved honey-based range made it to the list! This lightweight, fast-absorbing, intensive leave-on serum targets the signs of an unbalanced microbiome, aka your itchy, irritated, and flaky scalp, and instantly helps balance and protect it, resulting in healthier-looking and shinier hair.

Christophe Robin Purifying Pre-Shampoo Mud Mask

As obsessed as me with the Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying scrub? Then you need to try their latest Purifying Mask with Thermal Mud, which works as a pre-wash detox treatment. The new formula delivers a spa-like muddy mousse texture to cool the scalp for the utmost sensorial experience whilst having the purifying range's reinvigorating and emblematic fragrance. 

Briogeo Farewell Frizz Rosarco Milk Leave-In Conditioner

On our quest for that glossy hair, even when the temperatures drop off, we found the perfect product for nourishing and detangling strands right out of the shower. This lightweight leave-in conditioner does everything you wish for and more as it locks in hydration and removes the humidity that causes unwanted frizz. With a blend of rosehip, argan, and coconut oils, it seals the hair cuticle, minimises frizz, and enhances smoothness, shine, and manageability.

essano Scalp Refresh Concentrated Serum

Are serums only for the skin, you ask? Not entirely; they are the perfect addition to any winter haircare routine for that extra boost of hydration! This is a beautiful salon-quality formula developed with efficient and effective high-strength ingredients that help remove dead skin cells and dandruff and deliver optimal scalp health.

Bounce Back… Curl Enhancing Cream

As a curly-haired girl, I find that frizz is an everyday battle, so if you are in the same boat, just wait until you try out the DunGüd Bounce Back, a true cure for curls! You choose if you want to apply it onto damp or dry hair to create definition and enhance shine while eliminating frizz.
