With the change from hot and humid weather to cooler and dryer temperatures, there can be a lot of stress put on our skin and hair.

Depending on your hair length and texture, with the changes can come issues like dry, brittle ends and dreaded static.

Now that winter is on its way, we chatted with Roger Medina, a celebrity hairstylist and Garnier Canada hair expert, for his top tips on dealing with the challenges that come with tackling the cold weather.

According to Medina, some of the biggest issues that come up throughout the fall and winter include static, matted hair, and dry strands.

“When temperatures drop, your hair picks up an electrical charge from the dry air causing it to stand up,” he explained. “It's common in the chillier months because the air is less moist and you have to work extra hard to combat it.”

As for dry strands, much like with static hair, when the moisture levels in the air drops, hair can become dry and brittle and even feel a little like straw. This is especially true for those with curly-hair, since coiled hair is naturally drier.

Frizzy hair is another major cause of concern, especially as we begin layering heavier fabrics knits made from polyester, nylon, or acrylic that cause static electricity.

“Frizz is caused when hair is dry and lacks moisture, Medina said. “When your hair is dry, the cuticle is rough and humidity causes the outer layer of the hair to take in moisture from the air, causing the hair to swell.”

To help prevent dry and frizzy hair, Medina recommends introducing more moisture into your hair care regimen with a hydrating shampoo and conditioner.

“For colder months, I’d suggest looking for products that contain any of the following ingredients to help nourish hair: almond cream, argan oil, honey, coconut oil, cocoa butter, avocado oil, or shea butter.”

If, like me you’ve been dealt fine hair that gets oily easily, Medina recommends looking for a product that’s less dense and won’t weigh hair down.
