Fix Your Winter Haircare Woes
Dry, bone-chilling air can take a toll on your body. If you’ve updated your skincare routine for the season, why not your haircare routine? As you courageously face the remaining winter cold, check out these fixes for all your haircare woes!
While washing your hair every day may seem like the normal thing to do, it's actually giving you major dry hair. Especially with the winter dryness, you need all the hydrating natural oils that your scalp can get! Washing your hair too frequently will strip your scalp of its natural oils, which are necessary for keeping hair hydrated and protected from the elements. Try to extend the period between your washes as much as possible until you find the perfect wash cycle for your hair. For example, if you usually wash your hair every other day, try every two days. If you find your hair is still lacking moisture, try every three days. Brushing your hair is helpful for distributing those natural oils throughout your hair.
To combat dry hair, try WOW Skin Science Morrocan Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner. It is the perfect hair duo for adding strength and shine in one step. If it is moisture you are after, try WOW Skin Science Coconut Milk Shampoo and Conditioner. It's an ultra-nourishing and gentle duo featuring Lauric fatty acids to replenish that dried out winter mane.
If your roots aren't too oily, try washing your hair with conditioner only and alternating use of the shampoo to every other wash. This method will ensure that your natural oils have more time to shine.
Fighting static electricity? Dry hair is prone to having more static electricity, which results in frizzy, unmanageable hair. To combat frizz, add the WOW Skin Science 10-in-1 Hair Miracle Hair Oil to your hair care routine. This will help strengthen and tame hair to bring back control over your hair.
During these colder months, the lack of moisture in the chilly air can dry out your scalp. Even when you're avoiding the cold for a comfy night in, climate-controlled heat can severely dry out your hair by zapping all the moisture out of the air. A dry scalp can leave you feeling uncomfortable and itchy, how do you fix it?
If you are suffering from a dry, itchy scalp, look for products with soothing, hydrating oils that can help combat dryness. Some great conditioning oils to look for are Moroccan Argan Oil, Castor Oil, and Jojoba oil.
In your hair care routine, add hair oil before and after hair washing to combat dryness. Apply a few drops of WOW Skin Science 10-in-1 Miracle Hair Oil every day to the ends of your hair to deliver essential moisture, leaving it soft and shiny. This multitasking oil features 'liquid gold' Moroccan Argan Oil, and Jojoba Oil for intense hydration in just one step.
If you suffer from more severe dandruff due to a dry, flaky scalp during the winter months, apply a heavier oil treatment like WOW Skin Science Castor Oil directly to the scalp. Let the oil absorb and go to work for 20-30 minutes to deeply moisturize the scalp, then wash your hair as usual.
Hack: Get bonus hydration penetration if you wrap your hair with a hot towel after applying castor oil, to open the hair cuticles for added shine!
If you have colored or damaged hair, winter can be a rough time to show off your shine. Weekly hair treatments can make all the difference when dealing with hay-like hair. They are a great deep conditioning treatment to promote hair health and boost hydration in less than 30 minutes.
For very dry or highly processed hair, try adding a few drops of Lavender, Peppermint or Rosemary essential oil into your shampoo or conditioner to rejuvenate and repair your hair. Curly hair will especially benefit from this added moisture, as the smooth hair cuticles will make your curls look defined, bouncy and healthy.
