We’re about to get another snow storm here in New York City.

Yes, it’s winter, and yes, that’s to be expected this season. But at this point of year, we just want winter to go away and the sun to reappear.


But until then, here are a few simple tips from Gatsby Salon Senior Stylist Maria Confalone that will allow you to keep your hair happy and healthy, even if the rest of us aren’t.

“The cold winter weather combined with indoor heat causes our hair to become overly dry during the winter months. The extreme temperature changes stress hair, resulting in unruly static and dryness. The most effective way to combat winter dryness and static is to use a deep conditioning mask on a weekly basis. First, use a clarifying shampoo to remove build-up in order to allow the mask to penetrate the hair follicle properly. For optimal results, leave the mask on your hair as long as possible, approximately 20 minutes. A leave-in conditioner will also keep the hair moisturized throughout the day.”
