Winter Hair 101: How To Prevent + Heal Winter Hair Damage

By Alexis Wolfer

As the weather continues to dip and the air becomes drier and drier, it’s not just our skin that feels the effects; it’s our hair too! Dry, brittle hair, though, isn’t merely less attractive, it’s also more prone to breakage and damage too – the damage of which you’ll feel for months to come… which is why it’s so important to take care of your hair this winter… and here’s how!

Neutrogena Triple Repair Shampoo + Conditioner ($6.49 each)
The first place you need to upgrade your hair care routine is in the shower! Neutrogena® Triple Repair line is clinically proven to instantly repair the 3 leading signs of hair damage, reducing breakage by 80% and split ends by 97% so hair is left stronger, smoother, and more nourished all year long.

Mark Hill Miracoilicious 2 Minute Intensive Treatment ($11.99)
The extreme elements of the winter season can strip your hair of essential moisture and natural oils, leaving it dry and parched. To rehab and revive hair, use Mark Hill Miracoilicious 2 Minute Intensive Treatment, a sulphate and paraben-free miracle treatment filled with an exotic mix of 14 of essential oils and plant extract that infuse protein back into weakened and damaged tresses leaving it feeling stronger, healthier and shiner than ever.

René Furterer Karité Intense Nourishing Mask ($47)
When your hair needs some extra TLC, use this deeply hydrating mask! It contains Fair-trade Ethical Shea butter (Karite is French for Shea) to provide intense, long-lasting nutrition to restore suppleness, softness and natural protective mechanisms to the driest, most damaged hair types. Even better: in November and December, René Furterer is donating a percentage of proceeds of sales from the Karite Intense Nourishing Mask and Intense Overnight Nourishing Treatment to a woman-run organization in Burkina Faso that produces fair-trade Shea butter.

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk – Natural Tint ($19.50)
During the winter, the last thing you want to do is leave the house with wet hair. But when your hair needs a revival, dry shampoo is your best friend. I especially love the Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk, Natural Tint because it not only gently revives hair, ridding it of excess dirt, oil, build-up and odor (while leaving hair soft, clean and full of volume) but also because this new version contains mineral pigments that result in a natural beige shade that blends easily into darker shades when brushed out. It’s no wonder it’s a cult favorite among celebrities such as Karlie Kloss and Cindy Crawford. 

HASK Exotic Macadamia Oil Moisturizing Lightweight Shine Oil ($2.49)
This is the ideal styling tool for damaged that this winter. Packed with rich essential fatty acids, omega 7, vitamin E, and powerful antioxidants derived from the miraculously moisturizing macadamia nut, it mimics our scalps’ natural oils to hydrate dried locks and keep hair soft, supple and shiny. Apply to wet or dry strands to instantly add healthy shine to – and a delicious vanilla nut scent – to dry, damaged or over-processed hair.
