Even if you only have a passing interest in skincare, you’ll know that winter brings specific challenges that require a little extra TLC to keep our skin looking its healthiest when the mercury drops (see our blog on fall skincare for all the tea)
But many of us forget to give our hair the same love and attention that chillier temperatures call for.
The cold, dry air, coupled with indoor heating, can wreak havoc on our locks, leaving them brittle and prone to breakage. But with the right products, and by making a few simple changes, you can look luscious all season - even when the dreaded “hat hair” rears its ugly head!
HYDRATION IS KEY
Winter's cold air tends to be low in humidity, leading to dehydration not only for your skin but also for your hair. Combat this by upping the amount of water you drink every day, and incorporate hydrating hair products into your routine. Look for shampoos and conditioners that are specifically designed for dry or damaged hair.
MASAMI MEKABU SHAMPOO
Enriched with the nourishing power of the Japanese ocean botanical Mekabu, this luxurious shampoo is low foaming, adding shine and hydration for all hair types.
TRY A SERUM
That’s right. Serums are not just for your skin. They have the power to revive dry, dull-looking hair by infusing moisture into every single strand. Some also have light-reflecting ingredients, adding sheen and luster without making the hair feel greasy.
ILLUMINATI DIVINE SHINE HOLOGRAPHIC SERUM
Brilliant reflective illumination in a holographic treatment serum ideal for all hair types. Thermal and environmental protection smoothes frizz, and protects color with an incandescent shine that is truly divine!

Indulge in deep conditioning rituals
If you’re anything like us, you’ll be spending more evenings indoors, using the cold weather and dark evenings as an excuse to indulge in a little self-care. So use that time to pamper your hair with regular deep conditioning treatments to restore moisture and prevent split ends. Consider using a hydrating hair mask once a week to provide an extra boost of nourishment.
VELVET DIVINE HAIR MASQUE
This intensely deep conditioning masque eliminates damage caused by chemicals, heat appliances, and environmental stresses. It adds brilliant shine, moisture, combability, strength and manageability while eliminating frizz.
WASH YOUR HAIR LESS
While it's essential to keep your hair clean, over-washing can strip it of its natural oils, making it more susceptible to winter damage. Opt for a sulfate-free shampoo to maintain your hair's natural oils, and consider washing your hair no more than two to three times a week. If you feel your hair needs freshened up, try dry shampoo, or just wet it in the shower, add a little conditioner, and dry as usual.
VELVET DIVINE MOISTURE SHAMPOO
A sulfate-free shampoo ideal for chemically treated, frizzy, thermally damaged, dry, curly, unruly, coarse hair types or anyone searching for moisture, brilliant shine, smooth condition and manageability.

PROTECT WHILE STYLING
Heat styling tools can hurt. So protect your precious hair by ALWAYS using a heat-protecting spray.
