I have a lot of hair, and it’s very thick, so it’s easy to assume I get pretty frizzy hair. Thus, my blow dryer was my enemy for years, as was winter dryness. Now, however, I believe I’ve found a good combination of products to help tame my frizz and give me great hair. So feel free to read below about what I’ve been doing so far this winter. I feel like my hair has been dramatically different, and definitely in a good way. If you get frizzy or dry hair, how do you keep it hydrated during winter?
Desert Essence Coconut Shampoo and Conditioner
I believe this stuff has dramatically changed my hair for the better. I’ve been using them for about six months now, and I love them. Coconut is supposed to be good for dryness, so I was excited to try this out. First off, it smells amazing, obviously. Secondly, it does a great job of hydrating my hair and scalp. I got these at Swanson Health Products, but I’ve also seen this brand at TJ Maxx before as well.
Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle Deeeeeep Treatment
About once a week, I like to use a hair mask to really moisturize my hair and scalp. I had some samples of various masks I was using up, and then I saw this at Target for $2.99 and knew I had to try it. It’s amazing! After using shampoo and conditioner, I use about a quarter-sized amount and work it through my hair. I normally listen to music when I shower, so once a song is over I know it’s been about three minutes and I rinse it out. My hair instantly feels smoother, fuller and just luxurious. I seriously love this stuff, and I highly recommend it.
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day
This stuff is also amazing, and I know I’ve mentioned it in my favorites posts before. You only need about a dime-sized amount, and then you just work that amount all over your damp hair and comb it through with your fingers. It’s pretty pricey at $26, but you only need a tiny amount each time you use it, so it should last a while.
No heating tools (at least not right away…)!
Generally I shower at night, follow the steps above and then let my hair air dry before going to bed. I may straighten or curl my hair in the mornings occasionally, but I don’t use any heating tools on my hair after a shower, at least not most of the time. I think taking a little break from using heating tools all the time has been great for my hair. Like I said, I still certainly use them, but with much less frequency than I used to.
