The holiday season is officially over and as sad as we are to see all the discarded Christmas trees on the curbs of the city streets, there is something nice about getting back into a regular routine. The holiday party season is officially done and we can now take the time to settle into the new year and form habits that will make this year one for the books. That being said, if you’re anything like us, your hair has been seeing its fair share of wear and tear over the last month. Hair recovery from party season is no joke—after a marathon of chic updos, holiday party curls and lots of back and forth between the icy weather outside and overheated stuffy NYC apartments for celebrations, everyone’s hair is tired out, and we could all use whatever help we can get!
Take a look at some of our top hair recovery tips and learn how to revive your strands post-party season:
Hair Recovery: The Basics
Most of the work that goes into reviving your strands is included in the usual effort you exert caring for your hair. But by swapping out your shampoo and conditioner for a hydrating and reviving duo and choosing a hair mask geared to your needs, you’ll be infusing your hair with ingredients that will restore it to tip-top shape in no time.
Love Beauty and Planet Purposeful Hydration Shea Butter & Sandalwood Shampoo and Conditioner are one of our go-to wash and care systems that we pull out when our hair needs a quick dose of hydration. As the name suggests, these formulas are filled with nourishing ingredients like sandalwood and Shea butter that moisturize each hair shaft for full-coverage hydration. Wash and condition your hair as you normally would and enjoy the luxurious scent of this moisturizing duo.
Bed Head by TIGI Resurrection Treatment Mask is a must-have for this time of year. Much like a cup of coffee and greasy breakfast is the perfect hangover cure the morning after a night out, this resurrecting mask will be the cure-all for tired, limp hair after a month of over-styling. Apply this mask to freshly washed hair and leave it in for a few minutes to fully let it work its magic. Rinse it out and then style your hair as usual – you’ll be amazed by how soft and nourished your strands feel.
