Every season I like to switch up my hair routine a bit, especially during the winter months. The cold air is harsh, the damp weather causes frizz, and it could feel like one bad hair day after another, where you continuously find yourself reaching for a hat. Now a days there are so many hair products at our fingertips…oils, mousses, sprays, the list goes on. It’s hard to tell which ones are actually necessary and/or actually work. With the new year upon us, it feels appropriate to share an updated list of our go-tos that come in handy with the change of season, as well as a few “holy grail” products too.
My hair is curly naturally, which means to get loose curls like I usually style, a lot of heat is applied to my hair. First, I blow dry it straight, then curl my hair with a large curling wand. All the heat isn’t the best thing for my hair, but over time I’ve found a few go-to products and treatments that still keep it shiny and healthy.
To start, I only wash my hair every two days. This is for two reasons…one: I am a tad bit too lazy to blow dry and style it everyday, and two: the more you shampoo your hair, you strip away the healthy oils from your scalp. In between washes I use a dry shampoo. I just spray a little bit on my roots before bed and in the morning for a little refresher. Before blow drying and styling, I add a few drops of Moroccanoil Treatment, which is infused with argan oil, to the ends of my hair to fight off any split ends and add shine. I’ve discovered the benefits of argan oil in general. Pure Argan Oil has been a great multi-purpose product during the winter months. You can use it on your face, hands, and legs too.
Next I add a dime sized amount of Moroccanoil thickening lotion to the roots of my hair. This has been one of my favorite volumizing products…it smells so good and a little bit goes a long way! My hair definitely looks fuller.
Once a week I like to do a hair mask, to reverse any damage from styling. This hydrating mask is always a good go-to. I leave it on for about 20 minutes while I fold laundry or watch a quick episode on Netflix. When it’s time to rinse I use cool water to seal the cuticle and avoid any frizz.
