Between the blustering wind and the drying effecting of artificial heat, winter weather can wreak havoc on your hair. But, thankfully, by following a few simple steps in your haircare routine, you can ensure your locks stay luscious and hydrated all season long. Before this winter arrives with a vengeance, read this!
Step 1: Swap
Your lightweight shampoo and conditioner were great for summer-and even during the early transition to fall-but as the colder weather approaches, you're going to want to swap them out for more hydrating options. L'Oréal Professionnel Nutrifier Shampoo is a great silicone-free option for the season ahead. This nourishing shampoo is ideal for hair that feels dry and undernourished. Formulated with glycerol-a humectant that helps to maintain the hair's moisture barrier-and coconut oil-a perennial cult favorite-the shampoo cleanses hair without weighing it down, leaving it feeling softer and looking shinier. After shampooing reach for silicone-free L'Oréal Professionnel Nutrifier Conditioner to help hair feel softer, more supple, and easier to detangle.
Step 2: Style
Since hair can feel and look more dehydrated during the colder seasons, its imperative to protect your strands before subjecting them to a drying activity. Case in point? Heat styling. The fact is, air drying your hair when it's cold outside isn't always the best option, but neither is reaching for the blow-dryer day in and day out. Whether you plan to diffuse your curls or straighten your hair, reach for a heat protectant and then once dry, use a hydrating leave-in product like L'Oréal Professionnel's Nutrifier DD Balm. This dryness-defense balm-like the other products in the Nutrifier range-is formulated with hydrating glycerol and coconut oil. Used on your hair's mid-lengths and ends, it helps to leave you hair feeling nourished and looking seriously shiny.
Step 3: Sleep
During the dead of winter there's almost nothing as cozy as curling up under the sheets after a long day. Make that trip to dream land even better by caring for your hair while you sleep! A hair mask is a great weekly addition to your haircare routine. Use one like Série Expert Nutrifier Overnight Mask. This silicone-free, fast-drying overnight treatment helps to transform the appearance of dry, undernourished hair. Distribute a golf ball-sized amount of the foam treatment through dry hair before bed and upon waking your hair will look and feel softer, shinier, and more supple.
