Let’s embrace the Chill: Our Ultimate Winter Haircare Guide for 2023

Winter has arrived, and with it comes a chill that tingles the senses. While we love the Winter Wonderland, our hair often faces the harsh reality of the cold season. Winter proofing your hair care routine is key to keep your hair healthy and shiny. From winter hair colour, winter hairstyles, winter haircuts to winter hair trends in 2023, finding a balance between keeping your locks healthy yet stylish throughout the colder months is the key. Our expert stylists at Lazarou are here to guide you through the winter hair trends of 2023, ensuring your hair radiates beauty even when the temperatures drop.

I. Winter Hair Care Routine: Nurturing Your Hair in the Frosty Embrace

Let’s get the foundation of your winter haircare right: Moisture is Key

In the winter months, the dry air can suck the life out of your hair, leaving it brittle and dry. Begin your winter haircare routine with a hydrating shampoo and conditioner to replenish lost moisture. Look for products rich in natural oils like argan and jojoba for an extra boost. 

Our current hero products are:

The MoroccanOil Hydrating shampoo* is sulfate-free, its forumla combines high-performing cleansing agents with antioxidant-rich argan oil. Suitable for all hair types from frizzy, curly hair types to thick or thin strands.

KMS TameFrizz* range improves the hairs manageability and provides up to 100% frizz reduction. Its formula includes Babassu for healthy looking and nourished hair as well as Acacia which is known for its moisturising properties.

Goldwell’s Rich Repair Range* is ideal for dry to damaged hair. Its IntraLipid Complex repairs the hair from the inside out as it regenerates the inner hair structure.

Weekly Indulgence: Deep Conditioning Delight

Pamper your hair with a luxurious deep conditioning treatment at least once a week. This intensive conditioning treatment helps to repair and nourish hair that may have been exposed to harsh weather conditions. Opt for masks infused with nourishing ingredients like shea butter and vitamin E to restore vitality and combat winter-induced damage.

Our current fave is the Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask*. Formulated with organ oil and nourishing ingredients, the deep conditioning mask restores moisture, elasticity and adds shine to dry hair.

Combat the Static: Leave-In Conditioner Magic

Static hair can be a winter woe. Combat it with a leave-in conditioner that tames frizz and imparts a silky finish. A lightweight formula is ideal to avoid weighing down your locks.

Invest in a quality leave-in conditioner or a nourishing hair oil to create a protective barrier against the cold, windy weather. These products not only add an extra layer of hydration but also assist in preventing breakage and split ends. 

Our hero products are the:

Moroccanoil Leave-In Conditioner: Suitable for all hair types, this lightweight spray instantly detangles, hydrates and protects against heat damage. It is proven to reduce breakage by 49%. It contains a superfood blend of sunflower oil (moisturising and conditioning), quinoa extract (smoothes the hair and increases shine) and barley extract (antioxidants).

The KMS Moist Repair Leave-In Conditioner* is ideal for normal to dry hair, it instantly detangles and conditions the hair without weighing it down. Aloe Vera adds extra nourishment to the hair and Vanilla adds to healthy looking hair. 

*Available in our Lazarou Duke Street/Cardiff Castle store.

In addition to your product choices, consider these additional steps:

+ Adjusting your washing frequency: Washing your hair less frequently during the winter can help maintain its natural oils, preventing excessive dryness. When washing, use lukewarm water instead of hot water, as hot water can strip your hair of essential oils.

+ Don't forget about your scalp health. A dry scalp can lead to dandruff and itchiness. Incorporate a nourishing scalp oil into your routine to keep it moisturised. Look for ingredients known for their soothing and hydrating properties, like argan oil or rosemary oil for example.

+ Protecting your hair from the elements is crucial. When it comes to styling, opt for hairstyles that minimise exposure to the elements. Braids, buns, stylish scarves or other protective styles can shield your hair from the harsh winter winds, reducing the risk of damage.

By incorporating these additional steps into your winter hair care routine, you can create a hair care routine that shields your hair from the harsh winter conditions and ensures it stays healthy, shiny, and resilient.

II. Winter Hair and Beauty: A Symphony of Elegance in the Snow

Typically winter is not associated with trying new hairstyles or scavenging the shops for new accessories but winter hair in 2023 promises to be exciting:

Accessorise with Elegance: Winter Hair Jewelry & Hair Bows

Elevate your winter style with the season's hottest trend: winter hair jewelry and hair bows. Think delicate snowflake hairpins, crystal-embellished headbands, or ponytail cuffs to add a touch of glamour to your hair. Bows are another easy buy yet sophisitcated way to elevate your hair game this season.

Protect and Shine: Silk Scarves and Satin Pillowcases

Cold weather can strip your hair of essential oils, leading to dullness. Wrap your hair in a silk scarf when braving the cold to minimise damage from the elements. Additionally, using a satin pillowcase reduces friction, preventing breakage and preserving your hairstyle while you sleep.


III. Winter Hair Colours: Painting the Season with Vibrancy

Have you ever wondered which hair colour is best for winter or what is the winter hair colour trend for 2023? Let’s divide into the winter hair colour trends in 2023.

Winter Hair for Blondes: Icy Elegance

Blondes can embrace the winter vibes with icy hues. Shades like platinum blonde, silver, and cool beige are one of our all-time favourites. These shades not only complement the winter landscape but also convey elegance and sophistication at once.

Winter Hair for Brunettes: Rich, Warm Tones

For brunettes, winter is the perfect time to indulge in rich, warm tones. Deep chocolate browns, chestnut, and caramel hues add depth and dimension to your hair, creating a cozy and inviting look that mirrors the season.

Winter Hair for Reds: Adding hot to the cold

Whether you are a natural or chosen by the colour tube, redheads can play around this winter: from customizable colour blocking to a highly customizable modern aubern, there is no limit to the red shade our team can mix.

IV. Winter Hair Styles 2023: Runway-Inspired Elegance

Frosty Braids: Ethereal Elegance

Intricate braid styles aka sculptural braids capture the magic of the season. Whether it's a loose fishtail, a French braid or a crown braid mixed with hair accessories, the style options are endless.

Sleek Elegance: Winter Sleek Ponytail

For a sophisticated winter look, opt for a sleek low ponytail. Add a twist by wrapping a strand of hair around the hair tie for a polished finish or a velvet bow to elevate the look. This style effortlessly complements winter coats and cozy scarves, making it a go-to for chilly days.

Pixie Perfection: Winter Ready Short Hair

Short hair doesn't mean sacrificing style in the winter. Subtle layers and strategic texturing can really elevate the pixie cut this season. A low-maintenance style that is chic and sassy throughout the season.
