When it comes to winter, some people don’t realize your hair still needs that extra care. You might even have to switch to a certain hairspray to keep your style in place. Everyone’s hair is different, some people may require a light hold spray, medium hold, firm, or extra strength, While others might need a super hold or freeze. This all depends on your texture, the moisture level, and static level in the winter time.
With so many different hairsprays out, which one do you choose? Do you have to spend a fortune on one can? Well, first you need to decide on the type of spray your hair will need in the winter. For instance, if you wear a style like the messy look opt for a flexible hold, so you can run your fingers through it. Going to a winter wedding, your hair might need a Freeze, in order to keep it in place.
Now that we have a few types of sprays you might need, don’t forget, there are other things to consider. Even though it’s winer your hair still needs protection from the sun, so think of a spray with a UV protection. This type will also help with frizz, humidity, or wind damage to the hair.
Here are my top 5 hairsprays to keep the hair in place in the winter, which will give your hair protection, shine, and help with static, frizz, and moisture.
