The colder months can be a lot to manage, both from a beauty routine perspective and just in general. The harsh weather can do a lot of damage to our hair and skin, the shorter days mean less sunlight and oftentimes more stress, and everyone’s just trying to navigate their days inside their puffy, down winter coats. It’s not that enjoyable and it’s no wonder that most of us can’t wait for this season to be over.
With all of that in mind, we have to make sure that we’re being even more careful with how well we’re taking care of ourselves. Chances are, we could all use a little extra love. That’s why we’re bringing you our top beauty editor-approved winter hair tips.
From the best way to keep your hair moisturized and happy to a secret for sneaking in an extra dose of self-care, these are our top editor-approved winter hair tips. Read on:
Editor-Approved Winter Hair Tips
Keep your hair (and your body) hydrated.
It can be hard to remember that even in the cold months we need to make sure that our hair and bodies stay hydrated. When it’s sweltering outside and we’re sweating all day, it’s much easier to remember to hydrate. When it comes to keeping your hair moisturized, we suggest switching your usual shampoo and conditioner out for a hydrating duo. This is the easiest way to add some moisture into your routine without adding any extra time-consuming steps. TIGI Copyright Custom Care Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner are a winter staple in our beauty editors’ showers. This wash and care system delivers real moisture and will keep your strands hydrated and happy.
There’s nothing worse than pulling off your hat to a head of hair that’s full of static. One of the best-kept secrets in the beauty industry is that you can cut down on static by running a dime-sized amount of hair oil through your strands. We keep Nexxus Oil Infinite Nourishing Hair Oil around all season long for some static guard insurance and for this product’s nourishing benefits.
Treat your hair (and yourself) with love.
Many people feel a dip in their moods this time of year. Schedule in some extra time for self-care this season—it won’t solve everything but it will definitely help! Love Beauty and Planet Blooming Color Murumuru Butter & Rose 2-Minute Magic Masque is one of our go-to hair masks for exactly this purpose. It works its magic in just two minutes which means there’s always time for at least a quick moment of self-care.
