Is there no end to a girl’s hair dramas? It seems the minute we are finished with the summer humidity frizzies, that winter comes snapping at our heels bringing with it a whole new set of challenges.

Keep you hair in check this winter with these essential styling and care tips from one of the world’s leading hairdressers, Andrew Collinge.

moisturising shampoo & conditioner

Combat dryness

What most people don’t realise is that what hair really lacks in winter is moisture. Not only is the cooler winter air more drying and less humid, but we spend more time inside where heaters create a drier climate. The result – hair is dry, frizzy and loses its healthy look. Combat winter dryness with andrew collinge moisturising shampoo & conditioner. The super rich moisture balanced shampoo will cleanse and moisturise hair, whilst the rich conditioning formula of the moisturising conditioner will replenish lost moisture and re-hydrate for great condition and shine, without heaviness.

Curl up like Kate

For a head of tumbling curls like Kate Hudson, apply styling moussing gelle to towel-dried hair. Section the top half and twist into a bun at the crown. Do the same with the bottom half, securing the bun just below the top one, and allow to dry. Once dried remove pins and gently separate hair with the fingers. Scrunch through a small amount of andrew collinge shape up controlling wax for extra body and hold.

My little pony

The ponytail is the ultimate style for winter – quick, easy and weather resistant. For a supersleek and elegant look pull hair into a low ponytail (a favourite of Jennifer Lopez) at the nape of the neck and secure. Remember texture and volume however are still the key for winter, so don’t let your ponytail hang limp. Dampen hair with water, work through a small amount of andrew collinge messed up moulding gum and use a hair dryer to create volumous tousled waves.


Fast Hair Tips for Winter

Whenever it hits winter my hair goes into the worst case of the uglies. I don’t know if it is the cold temperatures or the constant wind blowing it everywhere and anywhere. Since I don’t really want to wear a hat all winter I needed to get some fast hair tips. I spoke with hairdresser Jason from Valonz, Sydney who was willing to give me a few good pointers on looking after my hair and getting back some lustre.

Make sure there is plenty of moisture in your apartment. Cause it’s cold outside we tend to sit indoors with a heater on. Invest in a humidifier or just put a pot of water somewhere in the house. If you check that bowl frequently you will notice how much water has evaporated. Imagine what it is happening to your hair – scary stuff!!!

Get your hair cut regularly. Try to go at least six to eight weeks. Although it does vary from individual to individual.

Do frequent deep conditioning on your hair. You can get some great deep conditioning treatments from the chemist or from your hairdresser. Put one in, wrap your head in plastic and plonk yourself in front of the television. The longer you leave it in your hair the better it is.
