Hello cupcakes! So the time has come – the winter is right around the corner and it’s time for us to start taking better care of our hair. As it is being exposed to numerous harsh weather conditions, we need to step up our hair care game and try to maintain our beautiful, luscious locks. Here are the products I swear by and which prevent my hair from getting dry and brittle during the colder months. :)
Shampoo and Mask
Obviously, our hair care routine should start under the shower. The combination of great shampoo and conditioner, or a mask in my case, is absolutely essential for my hair. I love it to be as nourished and conditioned as possible, as well as be very well cleansed and I’m happy to announce that my trusty Macadamia products are doing the job perfectly. My favorite hair duo consists of MacadamiaNatural Oil Rejuvenating Shampoo (review here) and Macadamia NaturalOil Deep Repair Mask (full review here). The shampoo completely restores my hair, making it very well hydrated and shiny. It gets rid of all the dirt and product build up and I am left with lovely silky, voluminous locks. As the shampoo is specially made to bring back moisture into the hair and to protect it from the harsh environmental conditions, I think it is perfect for the colder days when my hair gets ridiculously dry and lifeless. :) Next, we have the Deep Repair Mask, which I am sure you’ve all heard about before. This cult beauty product definitely stands for its name and does absolutely wonders to my hair. It is the one product I always have at home and if I can urge to go buy one thing – this would be it! The mask is enriched with Macadamia and Argan oils, which are known for their miraculous properties for the hair. The product brings life back to the hair and nourishes it deeply. It makes my locks look so healthy and my ends less frazzled. Also, when I use this mask my hair is SO soft and silky, it doesn’t tangle as much and the annoying frizz is long gone. Absolutely winner and if you have dry, damaged hair like myself this would totally save your life. <3
Three words – absolute must have! I can ramble on and on for the incredible things that hair oils can do to your hair but then this post would be endless! Let’s just say that they are essential if you want to improve the overall condition of your hair and take great care of it. Since I’ve started using hair oils (about two years now), my hair has become so much healthier, shinier and generally better. It is now less brittle, it’s silky, the tangles are a lot more manageable and what’s more – my hair has grown SO much that it’s not ever real! The two products I have to thank for that are Macadamia Healing Oil Treatment (review here) and Morrocaloil Treatment. They are pretty identical in the way they work for me and they are incredible. The only difference I’ve noticed is the scent (love them both btw) and maybe the fact that Morrocanoil is a little bit better as far as detangling goes. Apart from that, they both deeply nourish and rejuvenate the hair and inject moisture into it. They make it silky soft, prevent it from getting all tangle-y and tame it down while getting rid of the frizz (which is vital for my hair during the rainy months). I absolutely love that the oils make my ends look so well maintained and not at all frazzled or brittle. If this is not enough to convince you that you need to invest in good hair oil, let me tell you that it helps the hair dry a little bit faster as well! Brilliant! Oh, forgot to mention that neither of these two oils weight the hair down, so if you struggle with the volume of your locks – fear not! :)
Two additional steps I always try to incorporate into my hair care regime, especially during the chilly days are using leave-in conditioner and heat protectant. I know, I know – it is essential to protect the hair from the heat and I always preach that, but sometimes I just forget… When fall and winter roll in though, I get extra cautious with this step, as I don’t want any more moisture to leave my hair. It sounds ridiculous but I even made a sticky note reminder, which I put in the mirror of my vanity, so every time I’d use heat, I would remember protect my hair beforehand haha. Now that I am back on track, the protectant I’m using and loving, is L’Oreal Elnette Heat StylingSpray for volume. I have heard loads of great things about this and I am happy to tell you - it’s all rue! This gem protects my locks brilliantly, without feeling heavy or weighing down the hair. It also adds some volume so it’s a win-win situation! <3 Surprise surprise, next we have yet another Macadamia product and this time it is their Nourishing Leave-In Cream. This lovely product is enriched with special oils that tame down the hair and add beautiful softness and shine to it. I love using the cream before I start brushing through my wet hair and it makes the biggest difference. Also, the cream is prefect for the colder months because it adds a lot of moisture to the hair, which is fab for my dry locks.
So there you have it lovelies, my favorite little saviors that help me battle the harsh weather conditions and help me keep my hair look healthy and beautiful. I hope you enjoyed this post and I really recommend all of these products as I’ve found massive difference when using them! They are all amazing and definitely worth checking out! <3
