Autumn & Winter Hair Care at Sixth Sense Hair Salon, Sutton Coldfield

winter hair tips, sutton coldfield hair salon Summer can play havoc on your hair, leaving it dull, dry and brittle, so now is the time to give your locks some tender loving care to get it in super shape for the autumn and winter months.  

Check out our top tips for healthy hair…


Have an in-salon deep conditioning treatment once a week

Dry and brittle hair needs an injection of moisture. You can buy some good conditioners over the counter, but if you’re looking for longer-lasting results, have an in-salon treatment such as our incredible hair smoothing & conditioning Nanokeratin treatment.

Keep hair washing to a minimum

Wash your hair two or three times a week rather than every day. If you can bear it, wash your hair in cool water rather than hot water as the heat will dry out your hair.  A final blitz of cold water will give your hair extra shine too! 

Avoid over-using heating appliances

Cut down on the use of heating appliances- hairdryers, stylers, tongs, curlers – because these can dry out your hair and cause it to break. If you have to style your hair, smooth some heat protection cream through it first. Split ends love to be treated with a frizz serum or, even better, have your hair trimmed at Sixth Sense.

Dry your hair before leaving home

Make sure your hair is completely dry before you go outside into the cold air which tends to dry out your hair.   Give your hair further protection by hiding it beneath a hat or scarf. Silk scarves are a brilliant way of protecting your hair and your hairstyle should remain pretty much intact underneath it!

Eat plenty of fruit, vegetables & oily fish

We all know now that we should be eating at least five servings of fruit and vegetables a day for a healthy diet… but did you know that the vitamins in your 5-a-day will also help your hair to become shinier and stronger?  Salmon, peppers, avocados, fresh fruit and nuts are all great sources of food for healthy hair.

Avoid stress and have some fun

Stress can have a detrimental effect on our lives.  It can raise our blood pressure, give us a sallow complexion, bring us out in spots and give us hair that is dull and lifeless.  Anyone who’s visited Sixth Sense Salon before, know what a fun and welcoming bunch we are.  We want you to relax and enjoy your experience with us, so give yourself some well-earned ‘me time’ and book your appointment with us soon.  Call us on 0121 448 0760 or book online here.
