  • Winter hair, should I still care?

    Now that the winter months are upon us, you may be tempted to embrace the ponytail in an attempt to keep hair washing to a minimum. The thought of getting out of the warm shower with dripping wet hair only to be confronted by a cold blast is enough to send anyone running to Fiji for a couple of care free weeks in the sun. The days are much colder, and whilst we love a pony tail at Hamilton Brooks, it is time to start thinking about ways to protect your hair from elemental damage.

    Hair can easily become dry and brittle during the winter months, it is a good idea to indulge your hair once a week with a deep conditioning treatment. This will help to replenish some of the moisture that can be depleted due to repetitive use of styling tools and winter heating in the office and at home. Come into the salon for a treatment or take home Kevin Murphy, Hydrate Me Masque. This must have product is deeply moisturising, smoothing, repairing, and also adds elasticity and shine.

    A hair oil like Davines OI, is also a great option to run through the mid lengths and ends after you shampoo and condition. Oils are especially beneficial to colour treated hair and this gorgeous product adds extraordinary shine and softness. It has a strong detangling and restructuring action and anti-frizz effect.


    Continue to get regular trims throughout winter. A snip every six to eight weeks is recommended to reduce the chance of dry, splitting ends.


    Covering your hair with a stylish hat will protect, your beautifully styled locks from being blown about by the winter wind whilst out and about.

    Adopting these tips during winter will help your hair look its best all season long.
