Cold Weather is Just Around the Corner!

What products are you using to keep your hair moisturized and frizz-free?

Early mornings now require a sweater or light jacket to enjoy. Well, the same goes for your hair. You need a protective layer as the weather gets cooler. Cooler equals drier (hair and weather.) Who enjoys dry frizzy hair? Not me!

If you go for natural/homemade products, here are 12 Natural Hair Moisturizers that you can make at home with ingredients in your cupboard or your refrigerator. The best part is, you can make more than one application at a time. And, what you don’t use externally (on your hair), you use internally (in your tummy.) Did you know aloe is not just for burns anymore? There are two different recipes that use aloe; another place to double your benefit – moisturizing hair and skin. I love Tip #5 for silky smooth hair; mash those frizzies!

Now, it’s not just cooler weather that dries out and damages your hair. Your hair is damaged in other ways: extensive sun exposure, use of curling irons and hair dryers, not to mention the color we apply strictly to tame the frizzies…

I highly recommend that you ask your hair professional which products are best for your hair. I can, however, recommend the Davines product line. All of their products are great for dry and damaged hair . Start with the shampoo and end with just a smidge of Davines OI Absolute Beautifying Potion. It helps prevent hair aging and breakage. (And, who doesn’t want their hair to make them look younger?) Worth the prices and it lasts a long time. Davines Oi makes a full line of shampoo and conditioners. (See below.)

Davines Melu is another product line that repairs long or damaged hair. It repairs your split ends, hydrates your hair and hinders futures split ends. Davines Melu product line includes shampoo, conditioner, serum and shield (for protecting your hair from curling irons, flat irons and hair dryers.) (See below.)

Finally, if you’re venturing out to really cold parts, you can protect your head, and your scalp, with a beanie or other appropriate winter headgear. When you’re massaging your hair treatments into your hair, don’t forget to massage your scalp as well. If your scalp is dry and flaky, it won’t matter how shiny and smooth your hair is!

So, whether you try the home-made versions or the store-bought ones, let me know which one you preferred. Did you tweak one of the recipes or add something to the ready-to-use products?
