Don’t let winter’s chilly bite get you down! Even though the weather can be frightful, your hair can still be quite delightful, as long as you give it the special care and attention it deserves. As the temperature drops outside, you’ll have to be extra careful not to expose your wet hair to the elements, especially when the temperature is below freezing.
If you want to beat the frizzies, you can try a number of styling products and special shampoos and conditioners to give your hair a silky sheen. To combat coarse hairs you’ll want to soften your hair, and to defend against dryness you’ll want to lock in some moisture. To accomplish all of these goals and more, try a moisturizing hair masque!
Treat your tresses to a spa-like makeover, sans scissors. Set aside some time for yourself, whether an extra two minutes in the shower for a quickie hair masque or go all out with a professional or homemade remedy out of the shower. If you opt for the latter, don’t forget to keep a shower cap or some plastic wrap and a towel handy. If you opt for the former, merely set aside between two and ten minutes for the conditioning treatment to seep into your hair.
While products typically recommend that you allow a certain span of time for the product to soak into your hair, I’ve found that keeping the product in your hair for even just a few moments still produces positive results. Many deep conditioning treatments suggest that consumers apply these treatments to their tresses a maximum of once every two weeks, so using a less potent treatment every once in a while may also benefit hair.
Even if you’ve never applied a deep conditioning masque to your hair, it’s nothing to be afraid of, and something you should try at least once. Honestly, my first time using a hair masque came about completely by accident. I thought I’d picked up a facial masque at the store and upon returning home, I learned of my folly. Too lazy to take the product back and exchange it for the one I’d wanted in the first place, I decided to give the hair masque treatment a go. Much to my delight, the potion did improve the condition of my hair – on the first try!
Many herbs and naturally occurring ingredients can positively impact hair’s condition. Try a product like John Frieda Kelp Help deep conditioning masque. The product usually sells for between five and seven dollars and it relies on the protein-rich sea kelp to renew and revitalize hair, leaving it soft, silky, shiny and smooth. This restorative hair treatment also works to repair damaged and dehydrated hair with a smart blend of algae and sea kelp. By penetrating dry, coarse or damaged hair, these components restore hair’s strength and natural glow. The directions instruct that the solution should be massaged into wet hair post-shampoo and left on for ten minutes, though other products may differ in their instructions.
To find a product that is best suited for your hair, you may have to sample a few different brands. Visit your local drugstore and check out the entire hair products aisle for the best selection, or consult your hairstylist. For less than $10, you can restore your hair’s vitality in ten minutes or fewer. Why face a costly trip to the salon? Give your hair the boost it needs with a leave-in or rinse out deep conditioning treatment that you can easily do at home while you shower or as you relax at night. Forget about imprisoning your tresses in a ponytail all day. Don’t let frizz and dryness control your hair….Take charge and let your lovely locks shine!
