Not only does our skin require some additional care once the mercury drops, but so does our hair. Being exposed to low temperatures, heated interiors and headgear can take a toll on our tresses. It's thus essential to care for our hair and twerk our hair care routine during the colder months of the year.
A basic requirement, no matter which season we're in, is a mild, sulphate-free shampoo which does not strip the hair strands of their natural oils. Remember to focus on the scalp when shampooing and massaging the skin to free it from any debris or build-up. There is no need to cleanse the lengthens of the hair since the shampoo flows towards the ends, thus cleansing them in one easy swoop. Our tip: Officina Naturae's Shampoo for Stressed & Damaged Hair. It not only nourishes and strengthens the hair follicle but mends and protects the strands as well.
For more manageable tresses, opt for the conditioner by greenatural. It provides intensive nourishment and is highly moisturising thanks to the inclusion of organic virgin olive oil and aloe vera. For added volume, balance and shine.
Hair masks are vital during winter as they provide the hair strands with added moisture and nourishment for a shinier and healthier appearance. The Aubrey Organics Hair Mask is a deep conditioning product that is enriched with blue-green algae, aloe vera and shea butter that boost moisture, shine and suppleness restoring dull hair to its shining glory. Simply apply to clean, damp hair, leave on for 15 minutes and rinse with shampoo. If you suffer from split ends or damaged hair, we recommend trying the CMD Naturkosmetik Rio de Coco Hair Care range which is packed with natural coconut oil to counteract breakage and shield the strands from dryness.
