My Winter Hair Care Routine: How I Keep Dry Hair Hydrated

Press Sample I Bought This

In the Winter months dryness is the biggest issue for me when it comes to my hair, ESPECIALLY living in inland California, closer to the high desert areas... It is DRY, DRY, DRY and using the central heating on top of that. Also the tendency to not wash my hair for days (it's cold!) and ball it up in a bun adds tangles and rough texture to the equation. So, what to do when your hair looks like the rat's nest from hell and it's so dry that you can practically hear it crackle? You (or er.. more specifically *I*) start adopting a moisture-filled hair care routine which incorporates a range of hydrating products. One thing I have to be careful of is using products that leave my fine hair feeling greasy and heavy and these ones (when used the way I use them) leave my hair feeling soft and smooth, without the added grease.

1. nuNAAT Garlic Magic shampoo and conditioner

Use: Every 2/3 days

I've reviewed these before, and they've become my regular shampoo and conditioner. I just love the way they leave my hair feeling clean and soft and get rid of any oil or product build up without being too harsh.

2. Coconut Oil

Use: Once a week

You may have seen my Ombre Hair post where I use Coconut Oil to protect my hair from being fried by bleach. As well as being a wonderful protectant, it's also a great deep conditioning treatment. I usually saturate my hair until it's well coated, but not dripping, wrap it in saran wrap and either leave it in overnight or leave it in for a few hours and hit it with my hairdryer so that it really penetrates. Then I wash it out thoroughly with shampoo and conditioner.

3. Parnevu Hair Mayonnaise

Use: Once or twice a week

This is a beautifully thick and creamy product that I use as a mask or deep conditioning leave-in treatment. The main ingredients are Olive Oil, Egg Protein and African Herbs and you can see the little bits of herbs in there. This is a heavier treatment, so I try not to put too much on at once. I leave it in for a few hours and wash it out, or use a little bit as a leave in treatment on damp hair. It gives my hair that extra boost of moisture during the week.

4. Parnevu Extra Dry Leave In Conditioner for Normal Hair

Use: Daily

I use this leave in for every day styling, I put a little bit in damp hair and comb it through before applying heat or letting it air dry. It detangles, gets rid of frizz and my hair feels soft and smooth. I've noticed less hair in my comb when using this, so I do believe it helps with breakage. I also use this when I dye my hair, I mix it with the dye and apply it to my hair. It locks in the colour, gives me an extra conditioning treatment without being too heavy.

These are the products I've been using regularly throughout the Winter and they've helped my hair stay in good condition, shiny and soft even through all the dry weather, indoor heating, bleaching and dyeing!
