My biggest winter beauty issue is my hair. I live in the Cape, and spend 6 months of the year looking like What-a-Mess.
Firstly, for those of you who didn’t have an English granny who read to you, What-a-Mess is a naughty, slightly chubby Afghan hound created by author Frank Moir. He was up to no good most of the time, and filthy and scruffy all of the time.
Frizz is a big bugbear for CT ladies, as all that rain acts like a damp crimping machine. The best way to stop frizz in its tracks is to apply just a drop or two of serum to your hair. Rub between your hands, and smooth over towel-dried hair. Applying it to damp hair means that you won’t over-load the hair, and end-up with a greasy ball.
If you have very thick hair, look for anti-frizz creams instead. These will give you a moisture boost as well as sealing the cuticles.
Style your hair as usual, and them finish with an anti-frizz spray.
Ladies based further inland should also pay a bit more attention to their locks in winter too. That cold wind is incredibly drying, so treat your hair to an intensive treatment mask once a week. For an extra-strong treatment, apply the mask, and wrap your head in a warm towel –this will help the product penetrate your hair cuticle.
