Winter can be harsh. There’s no reason to sacrifice warmth trying to avoid dreaded hat hair. There are more ways than a wet towel or quick dunk in the sink to revive matted down locks. These styling tips will keep you looking good when you come in and the hat comes off. Go ahead, and don your favorite knit watch cap, baseball or cowboy hat. We’ve got your hair covered.
Your hair can get extra dry during the winter months. Dry hair attracts an electric charge. Adding a knit hat to the situation can be truly hair raising. Get out in front of static cling and crazy flyaways by using a leave in treatment like Bumble and bumble Quenching Conditioner. You should also make sure your hair is completely dry before putting your hat on. $34
