The Winter Hair Mistakes You Could Be Making

You are here

It is not just your skin that suffers from the cold, dry winter weather. Unsurprisingly, your hair is under seasonal assault too.

Centred. Creative Director, Kieran Tudor says,

The combination of cold temperatures, central heating, and a few common habits can leave your hair dry, brittle and prone to breakage. To maintain strong, healthy, hydrated hair, all year round, avoid these common winter haircare mistakes.

Skimping on Moisture

The dry, cold air outdoors and the central heating indoors can strip the hair of its moisture, leaving it dry, dull, and open to damage. Winter is not the time to skimp on moisture! Instead, double down on your hair hydration using an intensely nourishing conditioner to seal in moisture, soften, and strengthen.

  • We recommend Centred. Daily Calma Conditioner (£22 / 250ml) - A luxurious blend of Jojoba Oil, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, and Castor Oil combined with magnificent Squalane to rebalance moisture levels, rebuild hair from the inside out, and smooth the cuticle layer for healthy shine and protection.
Forgetting Protection

Our hair becomes more vulnerable to mechanical damage during the winter due to the lack of moisture. Vigorous brushing, friction from styling, or any unnecessary snagging or pulling causes the hair structure to become weaker over time, leading to breakage. Do not forget to protect and prepare your hair before styling with a moisturising leave-in treatment.

  • We recommend Centred. Unwind Detangling Hair Primer (£18 / 100ml) - This superfine mist, enriched with vitamins, tames unruly knots, locks in moisture, and protects your hair from damage without weighing it down. Orange flower water, aloe vera, and chamomile condition the hair and calm and soothe the scalp. Glycerin and panthenol help detangle and retain moisture.
Ignoring Your Scalp

The scalp often gets overlooked when it comes to haircare, but a healthy scalp is the foundation needed to grow strong, beautiful, healthy hair. Just like your skin becomes drier in winter, so will your scalp! Incorporate a weekly scalp treatment to deeply nourish and detoxify the scalp and fortify har.

  • We recommend Centred. En-Root Scalp Treatment (£36 / 100ml) - Deeply nourishing olive, hemp, and lavender oils replenish moisture to dry brittle hair, whilst detoxifying salicylic acid exfoliates detoxes the scalp to remove product build-up. Soothing rosemary and peppermint oils stimulate blood flow to the hair follicles maximising hair growth potential.
