  1. Soothe a flaky scalp with coconut oil. Due to the lack of moisture in the air, your scalp is going to be drier and itchier than ever. Help alleviate it with some coconut oil. All you need to do is heat up a tablespoon or two, massage it into your scalp, let it do its thing for about 30 minutes, and rinse it out with some shampoo. Your scalp will be thanking you!
  2. Apply a leave-in conditioner to fight frizz and static. So we’ve all been there – you take off your hat after coming inside and you look like a walking electrical shock. Tame your unwanted flyaways by utilizing a leave-in conditioner. My personal favorite is Frizz Ease by John Frieda. After conditioning your hair in the shower, spray this on still damp hair and style. Not only will it keep your locks looking smooth, but static will be a thing of the past.

    Oils are your best friend!
  3. Routinely treat your hair with a conditioning treatment. Because winter is so dry, you want to add moisture whenever you can to your hair. Once or twice a week, substitute your regular conditioner for a deep conditioning treatment. This simple step is guaranteed to leave your tresses looking and feeling amazing!
  4. Schedule regular trims. It doesn’t matter how long your hair is, the sad truth is that your ends are going to become dry and brittle. Get semi-frequent trims to get rid of these, manage your split ends, and help your hair grow faster. This easily overlooked tip is key to keeping your hair healthy.
  5. Finally, please do not go outside with wet hair. Drying can be a pain, I get it. But not only are your risking major breakage by throwing it into a pony tail wet, but even going outside without it fully dry can be seriously damaging. Plus your putting any color jobs at risk (it could potentially fade faster) and it’s going to take longer to dry anyway.

Winter doesn’t have to mean the end of your healthy looking mane. Just follow these tips and everyone will be asking how you keep your locks looking so lovely!

      1. Argan oil is the best! My hair can’t really handle heavy products (it starts to look limp and flat) but that stuff is amazing!

  1. Masks and deep treatments are my hair saviors! Typically I prefer the H’sua Wen Hua mask from Lush, because it makes me smell like a chai tea latte and leaves my locks smooth. However, because of where I live I can’t always access my beloved Lush. So I comb through a Hask deep conditioner twice a week.

    1. Hey lady! Lush is my favorite – seriously one store where I go in just to look around and I end up leaving with a bag of items. Gotta stock up while I can 😉

    1. I recommend starting with a smaller amount at first – a little goes a long way and you want to see how your scalp reacts first 🙂

    1. It makes it a little oily so you def want to make sure you get a good shampoo in afterwards (and no conditioner). I recommend starting with a smaller amount and seeing how your scalp reacts first and then add more the next time you use it if needed. Remember, a little goes a long long way 🙂

  2. I don’t usually use too many hair products but I may need to check out the leave-in conditioner since my hair tends to get dry in the winter. I also like the tip about drying your hair before you go outside. I tend to dry it until it’s mostly dry, but still damp. I will try to dry all the way when it gets cold! Thanks!

    1. If you do use the leave-in conditioner, let me know how you like it! And I am super guilty of not fully drying sometimes (it just takes so long) but during the winter you have to go that little extra amount to keep your hair healthy.
