Cold weather is on its way and that means chapped lips, dry skin, and frizzy, static hair might not be far behind. But it doesn’t have to be that way! Whether you’re dealing with a lack of shine, tangles, dryness, or breakage - investing in the right winter hair products can keep your hair shiny, hydrated, and healthy all season long.
Today we’re sharing our favorite winter hair care products and how to use them, plus some helpful tips to combat the cold, dry air that can wreak havoc on your tresses.
6 Essential Winter Hair Care Products
A nourishing hair oil is ideal for combatting moisture loss during the cold winter months. Our Honey Infused Hair Oil attracts and retains moisture while also protecting the hair against breakage.
Incorporating Honey Infused Hair Oil into your winter hair routine will smooth and soften your hair, control frizz, and add shine. Try applying just a drop or two throughout the lengths of your hair at the end of your styling routine, or add a few drops to your weekly hair mask to amp up the benefits.
Leave-in conditioner is an essential winter hair care product for detangling and improving manageability. Our Honey Infused Leave-In Conditioner nourishes and moisturizes the hair without weighing it down. It also helps to soften the hair and smooth frizz while adding shine.
During the colder months when moisture loss is a major concern, try spraying leave-in conditioner evenly from the mid-lengths to the ends of your hair anytime it’s in need of a conditioning refresh. It can also be applied to damp hair before styling to lock in moisture and add shine.
Taking care of your scalp is important all year long because healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp. But if you struggle with dryness, itchiness, and irritation in the colder months, our Honey Infused Scalp Treatment can be a real game changer for balancing the scalp’s microbiome.
Incorporating our scalp treatment into your weekly winter hair care deeply nourishes the scalp to soothe away inflammation, redness, and flakiness while also adding long-lasting hydration. Apply it to your scalp at night on dry hair, massage it in, and let it work its magic overnight.
If you experience residue or oiliness in the morning, simply wash your hair - this will not impact performance since the active ingredients will have already penetrated your scalp overnight.
Getting your hair to behave in the wintertime can be especially challenging when dryness and static can be a problem. Our Propolis Infused Polishing Primer is ideal for adding manageability and workable hold to any style. It also helps to control frizz, add elasticity, and prevent breakage.
Applying a pea-sized amount of Polishing Primer to damp hair before styling will reduce drying time and help the hair look shiny and smooth. Your style will last longer and have more volume and definition, too. Our hair primer can also be used to refresh second-day hairstyles for those times when you’re trying to avoid overwashing and drying out your hair.
Hair needs a little extra TLC in the wintertime when the cold air leaves it more prone to dryness and damage. A weekly hair mask is essential for boosting hydration and moisture. Our Honey Infused Hair Mask is the ideal choice anytime your hair needs intensive nourishment.
To enjoy the benefits of Negin Mirsalehi’s signature mask treatment, add 3-4 drops of our Honey Infused Hair Oil to a generous amount of the Honey Infused Hair Mask. Work it through your clean damp or dry hair from root to tip and allow it to nourish and moisturize your hair overnight.
If you’re short on time, our hair mask can also be applied in the shower after shampooing and allowed to soak in for 5-10 minutes before rinsing. Follow with our Honey Infused Conditioner to seal the cuticle and lock in moisture.
Heat styling is a major contributor to dull, damaged, and dehydrated hair. Heat protectant is an essential winter hair care product for preventing damage and moisture loss when the air is especially dry.
Our Propolis Infused Heat Protecting Spray is fortified with botanical oils, vitamins, minerals, and flavonoids to help the hair retain moisture and promote overall hair health. Apply it to damp or dry hair anytime you’ll be using a heated styling tool or spending a lot of time in the sun.
Winter Hair Care Tips
Winter weather can take a toll on your hair. And just like skin, hair needs extra protection from wind and cold to remain healthy and soft. Follow these winter hair care tips to keep your hair in great shape - no matter what the season throws at you!
- Cover Your Head: Wearing a hat or scarf during the winter months is an easy way to shield your hair from moisture-robbing snow, wind, and dry air. A silk scarf is ideal because it won’t promote static or cause breakage to fragile winter hair.
- Invest in a Humidifier: Running a humidifier in the room where you spend the most time can help to rehydrate the air, which helps to keep skin and hair hydrated and healthy. This will also help to prevent static and keep your hair more manageable.
- Consider Regular Trims: Having regular trims is a smart way to keep your style looking fresh, especially if your hair tends to be dry and prone to split ends. Consider having your hair trimmed every four to eight weeks throughout the winter season.
- Skip the Hot Showers: A steamy shower might sound like a good idea when it’s freezing outside, but hot water can zap the moisture from your hair, leaving it dry and prone to breakage. A comfortably warm shower is a better choice in the dry, winter months.
- Bring some products on the go: Are you on the go but notice your hair suddenly getting static? Carry a Mini Hair Oil in your purse and apply a few drops of oil to smooth out any stubborn static hair.
Answering Your Questions About Winter Hair Care
How Can I Hydrate My Hair in Winter?
Honey is a natural humectant that pulls water from the air and draws it to your hair and scalp.
Incorporating honey-infused products into your winter hair care routine will keep your hair hydrated and less prone to breakage and frizz throughout the colder months.
Honey hair products are also ideal for promoting scalp health and healthy hair growth. It’s beneficial for all hair types, especially during the winter when hair tends to be dry and brittle. Its regenerative proteins and other nutrients are extremely beneficial for keeping the hair and scalp healthy during extreme weather.
Which Shampoo is Best for Winter?
Sulfate-free shampoo is usually the best choice for the winter months. Sulfates are detergents that break down dirt and oil, but they also strip the hair and scalp of their natural oils, contributing to dryness and scalp irritation.
Our Honey Infused Hair Wash is ideal for winter because it’s sulfate-free and infused with honey and other beneficial ingredients that nourish the scalp and hair. It cleanses the hair gently but effectively to remove buildup that can contribute to dullness and scalp irritation.
