THE IN-TRAY

How to protect your hair in winter

As the mercury drops and central heating goes into overdrive, there are certain considerations that need to be made for your crowning glory. A cold snap (and the dry air that comes with it) can cause breakage, frizz, a dry scalp (and dry hair!), dullness, split ends and all manner of sins that even a wardrobe of woolly caps can’t begin to cover. This winter, protect your hair with nourishing, hydrating and restorative products to reverse the cold weather effects.

Gisou Honey Infused Scalp Treatment

This lightweight — yet intensive — leave-in serum targets the signs of a dry scalp (think: itchy, flaky and/or irritated). It’s a scalp moisturiser that harnesses the power of Mirsalehi bee garden honey and natural oils to soothe and hydrate — and it contributes to shinier, healthier-looking hair, too!

Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Shampoo

Noticed your strands are drier, coarser, frizzier or more brittle when the mercury drops? In general, there’s less moisture in the air during the winter months — which means less moisture in your hair, too. Try swapping your usual shampoo for this rich, oil-infused option that aims to soften, de-frizz and protect against environmental damage.

Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Conditioner

In tandem with a hydrating shampoo comes (no prizes for guessing this one)… a hydrating conditioner! Shea butter, grapeseed oil and sweet almond oil are just a few of the rich, nourishing ingredients in this post-wash powerhouse that works a treat — particularly if your hair is already dry and flyaway-prone (bleach fans, we feel your pain).

OLAPLEX No. 9 Bond Protector Nourishing Hair Serum

Satin-y softness, bouncy, defined curls (or sleek, straight hair) and smooth-as-silk, hydrated strands from root to tip? If that sounds like your ‘hair goals’ in winter – and year round – this serum is a gamechanger. A multitasking marvel, it helps to not only rebuild, but to also protect hair from environmental pollution and heat styling.

Aveda Botanical Repair™ Strengthening Overnight Serum

If your hair is in need of a little extra TLC in winter — and whose isn’t? — let this weightless treatment do the heavy lifting for you. Plant-derived actives and oils work to soften, smooth and strengthen hair while you sleep — and best of all, it sinks in quick smart (ideal for the fine hair-havers among us!).
