Cold Weather Haircare Heroes

Saturday, March 6, 2021

Hair evidently behaves differently in contrasting seasons. Each season holds a unique set of environmental stressors and elements which impact the overall condition and health of the hair. In winter, lack of moisture in both the scalp and hair itself becomes a predominate issue which can be troublesome if ignored. Combating these sometimes uncomfortable seasonal consequences with effective treatments and products can help revive stressed tresses and aids in the maintenance of healthy, strong hair. Whether it's revitalizing a suffering scalp or repairing a damaged mane, here are four beneficial products resolving winter's greatest hair woe. 

Before we tend to the tresses, it is crucial that we assess the root of the issue. In this frigid season, the scalp can unsurprisingly grow drier and flakey, which creates a frustrating itchy and inflamed response. Tacking on incorrect shampoos or styling products to the strained area can sometimes dry it our further which only compounds the initial concern. Reaching for a scalp-specific product with essential ingredients that work to flush out impurities while balancing scalp disruption is key. Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal & Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo is an ideal solution as it consists of charcoal, a powerful cleansing ingredient known to drive out pesky impurities and works to rid the surface of dead skin cells and grime, successfully creating a healthy foundation. An expertly blended product, this shampoo is chock full of healing ingredients, similar to those found in effective skincare. Hygienic ingredients like tea tree oil formulated with a refreshing duo of mint oils (spearmint, peppermint) heal itchy scalps while dehydration is remedied by a deluxe dose of coconut oil. Massaging in this nutrient-laden shampoo onto the troubled scalp, working well through the hair (don't miss the ends!), provides a comprehensive soothing solution. 

Regardless of hair type, an intensive weekly mask concentrating on restoring moisture is a greatly effective element in a lasting strategy to maintain healthy hair and revive damage. Wavy and curly hair textures crave more moisture so opting for a richer formula promoting deep conditioning and softness is imperative. Oribe Moisture & Control Deep Treatment Masque is a recurrent favorite as its various botanical ingredient-rich blend tackles common hair stressors while infusing hair with smoothing, moisture-rich oils. The masque's potent multifaceted approach to healing hair revives it by strengthening strands from root to tip, sealing in moisture without added weight and protects against the wear of natural keratin while combating dryness causes by numerous harmful factors. With extended use, this impressive mask is sure to leave you with strong, envious locks ready for the season ahead.

With smart solutions to cleanse and treat tresses ready to be implemented, how can we amplify hair hydration between washes? This once tricky issue is easily fixed by impressive hair oils developed to provide hydration without unsightly greasy results. Leonor Greyl Huile Secret de Beauté, a decadent body and hair oil, delightfully works on both styled and damp tresses and provides hydration and shine to dull winter hair. Packed with a fortified mix of nourishing vitamins and essential fatty acids, this natural beauty oil protects hair while sealing in much needed moisture ultimately leaving locks lusciously healthy. 

Interestingly, delaying a hair wash can offer a beneficial break that can be helpful to the overall health of hair. For certain hair types and textures, over-washing can lead to drier conditions which only leads to further complications during the cooler months. Shhhowercap, the ultra-chic eco-friendly cap is the perfect shower companion that protects hair on days a wash is skipped. These boldly colored, beautifully designed reusable shower caps are constructed with durable, lasting materials which help reduce waste caused by disposable alternatives. In an effort to further minimize waste, using these stylish yet useful sustainable caps limits water usage and additional electricity pulled from damaging hot hair tools used to dry and style freshly washed hair.
