Hat Hair: How to Deal with It!

Cute Hats Can Mean Crazy Hair – What to Do?

 This Fall I’ve seen a ton of cute and crazy winter hats parade through the salon—with hat hair tagging along for the ride. Cold air equals dry hair—add the static of a hat to the equation, and you’re looking at a flat, frizzy, flyaway mess! And it’s so disappointing to see that lovely braid or ponytail you worked so hard on turned into a birds nest. To keep your child’s hair looking great (girl or boy) when the hat is off, remember these two words: Hydration and Moderation!

• Swap out your summer shampoo for a richer 2-in-1 shampoo with conditioner.
• Because dry hair is most prone to static, use a leave-in conditioner spray after the bath to keep hair hydrated. Use a spritz in the morning before bundling up.

• If you usually use a styling product in you child’s hair, make sure that you don’t use too much. Use less styling cream or gel in “hat weather” to avoid flat, cling-to-the-head hat hair.
• Shampoo you child’s hair less frequently in cold weather.

In cold weather, hats are necessary accessories, and arming yourself with the right products is the key to preventing hat hair.

My favorite winter picks:

So Cozy Conditioning 2-in-1 Shampoo in Tropical Fruit

So Cozy Fruity Delight Leave-in Conditioner.
