How to Combat Tangles and Breakage

Say bye-bye to breakage.

The colder months can often cause a host of problems for even the strongest of strands. Between the lack of moisture in the air, the frigid temps, and the scratchy, woolen hats, our hair can turn into a mess of tangles and even break off. This winter, learn how to protect your strands and combat against seasonal tangles and breakage. We share exactly what you need to know, below!

Style With Strength in Mind

Winter is known for its blustering winds-a leading cause of tangles. To combat tangle-causing wind, style your hair with strength in mind. If you walk to work, twists, top knots, and braids are great ways to shield your strands. Hats are another great option-but, just be sure to follow the necessary steps to keep static from ruining your style! When styling, reach for products that can help to strengthen your hair to prevent breakage and tangling. Absolut Repair Lipidium Dual Serum is a great place to start. This leave-in treatment-for all hair types-helps resurface split ends instantly.

Give Your Hair TLC At-Home

Dry, dehydrated hair is more prone to breakage, which is why following a hydrating haircare routine is so important...especially during the fall and winter. Swap out your favorite summer shampoo and conditioner for nourishing options like those found in the L'Oréal Professionnel Absolut Repair Lipidium range. The shampoo helps to strengthen weakened parts of the hair fiber while the conditioner leaves hair instantly nourished and repaired. You can also try to alternate using a shampoo and a cleansing conditioner. Absolut Repair Cleansing Conditioner is enriched with Lipidium to help strengthen the hair fiber, plus it's free of sulfates and parabens!

Once or twice weekly, incorporate a strengthening mask into your routine, like Absolut Repair Lipidium Mask. This deeply nourishing 5-minute mask helps to strengthen weakened hair fiber and leave your locks soft, shiny, and easier to detangle!

See a Professional

Sometimes the TLC we give our strands at home isn't enough to truly strengthen them. For more intensive care, make an appointment at the salon for a professional treatment-like Power Repair. Enriched with Lipidium complex, this powerful formula helps to nourish damaged strands from the inside, out. Hair will feel and look stronger and be more protected from the aggressors that can lead to split ends, breakage, and tangles.
