So, winter hair is real. My skin and nails are suffering and my hair gets so dry it breaks. Uggg. I talked extensively to my hair girl that I’ve seen for 15 years and love. Here’s a few things that I’ve started using/doing religiously the past two months and it has helped big time.
I do an Oliplex Treatment at my salon every few months to strengthen my hair. I use the in-home treatment every day and leave it in my hair.
I shampoo and condition daily with Keratase Resistance, the (blue) bottle. Keratase also makes a mask that I use every other day.
Caster Oil is supposed to be great for skin and hair. It is super thick like honey. I found this one at Whole Foods and use it at night w/ a dropper. A little goes a long way and I massage it into my scalp and hair before going to bed. I will either then braid my hair for the night or use an inexpensive shower cap – it’s quite sexy!
Then, about three/four times a week I use a thickening shampoo. I started with Nioxin for color treated hair then recently read some good things about this brand sold at Nordstrom. I noticed a difference in one use with it! Big fan.
When I get out of the shower I pat my hair down with my Aqua Hair Towel and do not brush it until I absolutely have to (like, I need to leave the house!)
I first read about this hair towel on Goop. It is especially made for hair and is very gentle. Apparently regular towels are not good for weak hair. Lastly, I spray with leave in conditioner. I use It’s a 10 Miracle Leave in Treatment.
Also, instead of hair bands that can pull, I use hair coils. My favorites are from Emi Jay.
I baby my hair in winter and rarely blow dry it. I am also going to skip my highlights until it’s healthy and not so dry. I know it’s alot of products, but after all, hair is important. Right Bear?
