introThe harsh extremes of biting winds, frigid temps and dry indoor heating can take a toll on tresses. Fight back against the frosty conditions and get gorgeous.

Just Deserts

The in and out of indoor heat and outdoor frost can make for moisture-sapping mayhem, leaving hair as dry as the Sahara Desert. Rejuvenate straw-like strands with moisturizing shampoos, conditioners and treatments loaded with Essential Fatty Acids. Try running a humidifier at night while you sleep. Your hair, skin and sinuses will thank you in the morning.

That cute little hat looks so adorable and keeps you toasty outdoors, but once you step inside, your hair can be a matted, flat mess. To keep strands tangle-free and full, choose a looser-fitting style like a beret or a stylish fedora. Not only will you look modernly chic outside, but your hair will still be perfect when you shed the topper inside. Opt for natural materials like wool, cotton or even cashmere, which are kinder to your tresses than synthetics.

Fine, thin hair is often the first to succumb to static electricity. A silicone-based conditioner or light conditioning oil can work wonders to keep static at bay. You can also spritz hairspray on your fingers to lightly tame flyaways into place. The key here is to use very lightweight products or you could end up with flat, limp hair. One quick, perfectly portable remedy is to use an unscented dryer sheet. Whisk it over the winter wispies and watch your locks fall in line. And watch out for those comfy, rubber-soled shoes. They just might whip up more of a static charge.

The lack of moisture in the air can leave hair limp and lifeless this time of year. To boost your mane, try a volumizing styling treatment, particularly at the crown. Skip the conditioner on your scalp and focus the moisture on the ends. An ionic hairdryer will give you great lift without the frizzies. Try parting your hair the opposite way for a fresh new look and a little boost. Another trick for volume is to flip your hair upside down, give a quick hairspray spritz at the roots, then flip back for luscious bounce.
