How to Winterize Hair with Cezanne


We protect and winterize our cars, homes and even our skin—why wouldn’t we do the same for our hair? After all, constant dips and spikes in temperature can really take a toll on hair’s moisture.

This winter, cure your client’s blues with Cezanne Express Smoothing Treatment. Express is a fast service for on-the-go clients that will hold them over through the festive season. Not to mention, the treatment starts a conversation about the importance of protecting hair during colder months.

Most people don’t stop coloring their hair in the winter, why would they stop doing treatments to protect and keep it healthy during the harsh winter months? Recommend these tips and tricks from Cezanne on how to winterize hair:

Banish Dry Hair

Indoor heating can be like spending the afternoon under a hair dryer, causing extreme dryness and even dandruff. Hot water also causes dryness, breakage and strips natural oils from the hair. Mind your water temperature—don’t crank your water to as hot as it goes. Use our nourishing Keratin after care products that work from the inside out to keep hair healthy and strong!

Did you know? Cezanne Express reduces exposure to heat by reducing time spent blow-drying and flat ironing by 50%. The less time required to heat style your hair, the better. Heat equals dryness, which can be good for cozying up to the fire after a long hike in the snow, but not so good for your poor, stressed strands!

Protect Hair from Hat Head

Pull a hat off your head in the winter and you’ll likely hear the familiar crackle of static electricity. Static occurs more in the winter time because of the lower levels of moisture in the air. Wool and cotton caps, coupled with rapid changes from hot to cold, also suck out moisture, causing the cuticle to lift and produce static.

The key to banishing static is to hydrate the hair, whether it’s with our Express treatment or Leave-In Crème Conditioner. Cezanne Express eliminates static and dullness by keeping the cuticle flat and sealed with moisture. Sericin cements the hair’s Keratin fibers together, reducing split ends, attracting and holding moisture and adding incredible shine.

If you’re still having trouble with hat head, sandwich a thin silk cap between your hair and the hat before braving the cold. Install a humidifier in your home to cut down further on this “shocking” winter problem.

Prevent Brittle Strands and Breakage

Snow, rain and biting cold create brittle, dry hair. The Aloe Vera in our Express formula rejuvenates dry hair and scalp all while adding elasticity to your strands, meaning you can style your hair with confidence. The Keratin in our formula also bolsters strength, so you can experience a little wear and tear without complete breakage.

If you’re experiencing extremely brittle hair, remember that hair products used in the summer may not work as well in the winter. Switch to extra moisturizing products that are a step up on the hydrating scale and try wearing hair masks overnight with your head wrapped in a silk scarf. Have you tried Cezanne’s nourishing after care products yet? They are Keratin-infused to keep hair healthy and strong.

Say Goodbye to Split Ends

Windy weather causes tangles and snags in long hair. Brushing and detangling these unruly snarls can put extra stress on your hair, causing split ends.

Our low pH formula in the Express treatment prevents undo stress to the hair and lessens the swelling of the cuticle during application. Why is this important? When your cuticles are stressed, they can become damaged. Damaged cuticles cause split ends.

The Glycolid Acid and Soybeans/Phospholids in the Express treatment also add softness, sheen, and pliancy to resist breakage during the winter—it’s like a built-in conditioner that prevents these problems in the first place.

Certain shampoos can also strip natural oils from your hair, causing split ends. We recommend our Perfect Moisture Shampoo, which is free from sulfates, parabens, gluten and phthalates.

After receiving an Express treatment, stylists will trim split ends from the hair, ensuring that you can walk out the door 100% protected from the winter wind.

The key to keeping your hair winterized is by staying hydrated! Drink water, wear a loose braid that protects your hair from tangles and lock moisture into your hair with the Cezanne Express Smoothing Treatment. After all, prevention is the best medicine.
