The best hair products to survive winter

The cold and dry season of the year can cause problems that will follow you into spring and summer, so you’d better take special care of your strings now to avoid having to chop your locks off later. It is normal during winter for hair to become especially fizzy and brittle, not to mention the dry scalp, the statics and flyaways. The dry air, wind and indoor heating have a terrible toll on your strands. Curly hair suddenly becomes straight and loses its volume; straight hair grows dull, no longer shiny. So what can you do to control the frizz, the static and avoid the bad-hair days that will last all winter?  Because, let’s face it, you may look very glam with your Hermès scarf tied around your head, but how many days can you pull off this Grace Kelly look? And wearing a beanie to hide your hair day and night is obviously not the solution either.

We’ve selected some great hair product to counteract the adverse effects of winter on your hair.

Dry and curly hair

The best against dry, brittle hair is oil. There are many great hair products with oil in their formulas. Coconut oil, olive oil or Argan oil are especially effective. I like to massage my scalp with coconut oil and leave my strings soaking in it for some minutes before washing my hair. It nourishes and strengthens your hair and prevent split ends and those annoying fly-a-ways.


1- Hydrating shampoo

Start with a shampoo that will lock the natural moisture into your locks instead of stripping it away, reviving dehydrated and brittle ends.


2 – Moisturising conditioner

Besides the regular conditioner that you use after washing your hair, try also getting an everyday conditioner, that you can spray over your locks before leaving the house. It is essential to find the right one for your hair so that it doesn’t weight down your curls. For extra dry hair, get something a bit more powerful such as a leave-in conditioner.


3 – hairspray

It will fight frizz and leave your curls looking beautiful, flexible and light.


Oily hair

The more you wash your hair, the faster it becomes greasy again. 

1 – Light shampoo

Garniel honey strengthening shampoo is a honey-infused shampoo that will revitalise your locks.


2 – Dry shampoo

Try not washing so often your hair. A dry-shampoo can help you against flat, greasy hair.


3 – Shine spray

A good shine spray that adds moisture to the ends and avoids frizzy hair is a solution against lifeless and dull looking hair. Just mist a little on your tresses after drying or styling.


For all hair types

1 – Serum

Onira Organics serum that leaves your hair shiny and smooth without weighing it down.


2 – Mask treatment

A deep penetrating conditioning mask, at least twice a month, will keep your hair healthy and shiny even in the driest months.
