Spring isn’t getting sprung for a few more weeks, so the thirst is real for our brittle strands. If your dry winter hair is getting you down, our team has put together a few tips to combat the effects of winter on your luscious locks.
Don’t forget to deep condition. It is so important to use a creamy, deep conditioner once a week to reintroduce moisture into your thirsty tresses. We love Kopari’s Organic Coconut Melt made with 100% pure, organic coconut oil from the Philippines. Slather it all over your head, put your hair up in a bun, and rinse it all out after 40 minutes. Even better, the Melt can be repurposed into a makeup remover, moisturizer, under eye cream and shave oil.
Invest in a Humidifier. Chances are both your hair and skin could use a boost of moisture, and what better time to do it than when you are asleep? We’re digging this cute little mini humidifier that plugs into your computer and can be placed on your desk or bedside table.
Trade in those scratchy cotton pillowcases for satin. Dry hair means brittle hair, which leads to split ends and breakage galore. Turns out cotton absorbs moisture, leaving your dome dry as the desert. Satin or silk, on the other hand, retains moisture, leaving you with less of those natural oils on your pillowcase and more dew in your do.
Wash your hair fewer times per week. We know you’re hesitant, but hear us out. By washing your hair daily, you are stripping your hair of natural oils that it produces. Try to limit your washes to three times a week at most, and your hair will thank you. To hold you over between washes, spritz some dry shampoo on your roots.
Add some oil to your routine. If you live where winter gear is actually a necessity, those knit hats – while adorable and warm – are causing unruly flyaways and so. much. frizz. Do away with your fuzzy feels by running a few drops of oil onto your ends. We use Kopari’s Coconut Sheer Oil. Be wary though, a little goes a long way!
