Dushi Winter Hair Tips

As the temperatures take a nosedive, and you start stocking up on body butter and moisturizers to keep your skin happy, don't forget about your fabulous hair! Winter can be tough on those luscious locks, leaving them dry, static, and prone to damage. But fear not, my friend, we have the solution to rescue your tresses from winter woes!

Picture this: the cold elements outside and the cozy heated indoors play a sneaky game with your hair's moisture, leaving it dull and susceptible to breakage. And if that wasn't enough, your scalp might throw a dandruff party during these drier months. Yikes! But don't fret, because Dushi, the superhero hair brand from Melbourne, has some epic advice to share.

Listen up! In winter, those sneaky UV rays turn super harsh and mean. They not only mess with your skin but also attack the protein in your hair, making it fragile and prone to breakage. We can't let that happen, can we? Absolutely not!

So here's the deal: with just a few tweaks to your hair care and styling routine, you can save your strands from winter's wicked ways. Prepare for the ultimate hair rescue mission, my friend!

Let's dive into the fun-filled adventure of protecting your hair and keeping it fabulous all winter long. Are you ready? Here we go!


1. Switch to moisturising formula 

The simplest thing to do is to use a moisturising shampoo and conditioner. Coconut oil will work wonders but also richer oils that penetrate quickly into the hair such as almond, castor and pomegranate might work better for dry, cold climate, Other things to look out for? Wintertime products must include strand-strengthening ingredients like Keratin Amino Acids & Proteins.


2. Schedule a weekly deep-conditioning hair mask

Commit to a weekly deep-conditioning hair mask. We recommend argan oil-infused masks as they work the best in moisturising the hair. Hair masks are quick and easy to use and leave the hair hydrated soft with additional shine. Hair masks are more nourishing than regular conditioners and are formulated to penetrate deeper into the hair shaft.


3. Use heat judiciously

Heat tools like straighteners and curlers can fry the strands, causing already dry and brittle hair to get that much drier. While air-drying might sound like the best solution, it may not be. Anything that is cold expands, and if you walk out of the shower with soaking wet hair, the hair shaft expands, putting it at risk for breakage. We suggest blast-drying strands on the lowest heat setting for optimal results.


4. Massage your hair often

A head massage stimulates the scalp and promotes blood circulation, which in turn impacts hair growth. What better way than to use a derma roller  to stimulate blood flow. This process also improves the absorption and efficacy of solutions like our Rapid Hair Growth Serum


5. Protect your strands from fabric damage

Are you wearing a woollen cap on your head or a scarf around your neck? All that rubbing up against hair can cause split ends, breakage and static. Pros suggest using a silk scarf if you have to wear wool over it, and moisturising the hair with a serum before stepping out.
