Surprising Tips for Taming Pesky Winter Hair Flyaways


Surprising Tips for Taming Pesky Winter Hair Flyaways

Few things are more frustrating about winter than dry, chapped lips and frizzy, flyaway-prone hair. And while we can’t really advise you about your lips, we’ve definitely got a drawer full of easy tips for taming pesky winter hair flyaways in a jiffy!

Whether you suddenly find yourself dealing with a case of the frizzies, or you know ahead of time that they’re bound to happen, at least one of these tips should help you keep your winter hair looking sleek, styled, and stunning as ever.

Dry Your Hair With a T-Shirt

More than likely, your towel is not doing your hair any favors. And especially in the winter, when your hair is already suffering from lack of moisture and increased static—it can be a total nightmare to rub your hair down with a fluffy, snaggy towel.  

Don’t make your winter hair breakage worse by ripping your hair out with harsh towel rubbing. Instead, try drying your hair with a soft, old T-shirt. The cotton fibers are smaller and therefore less likely to tear at your delicate strands.

Rub a Dryer Sheet on Your Hair

If you’re already out and about and your hair starts to frizz and fluff in all the wrong directions, you can always rely on this standby flyaway taming trick.

Hair gurus have been pulling this one off for ages. All it really takes is a single dryer sheet, tucked discreetly away in your purse or jacket pocket. When you feel the frizz coming on, tame those pesky winter hair flyaways with a simple swipe of the dryer sheet.

We advise sneaking off to the powder room to maintain the air of chic, effortless flawlessness.

Make Use of That Hair Dryer Nozzle

Okay, who here threw out all of those extra attachments that came with your blowdryer? Don’t be ashamed; we’ve all done it at one point or another.

But the truth is: you probably could have used at least one of those attachments to help you fend off those pesky winter hair flyaways. The more concentrated the airflow from your hair dryer is, the less likely it will be to frizz up and become unmanageable.

So, if you don’t have an attachment that focuses that airflow, now is the time to invest in one!

Indulge Your Hair in a Moisture Masque

Last, but certainly not least, 2-5 minute moisture masques may only take a few minutes out of your day, but they can add months’ worth of style, beauty, and health back into your hair.

Winter is a dry and unforgiving time for your hair. Show your hair some love this winter by indulging in a 2-5 minute moisture masque. Locking in that essential moisture is what will keep your winter hair from frizzing up and flying away.

Take the time this winter to take care of yourself and take care of your gorgeous hair.

When your hair looks fabulous, you feel fabulous. Make sure you’re looking and feeling your best all winter long—and Always Be Fantastic!
