Good morning! And how about that snow, huh? One minute we’re basking in a lovely fall and the next? BLAMMO. Snow on snow on snow on snow.
They say the first snowfall of the season tends to be the worst – maybe that’s just because we’ve forgotten about the white stuff over the past few months – but no matter what the saying is, this was definitely intense.
And, while we can’t technically say that winter is here (officially it arrives in a few weeks!) but it’s definitely safe to say that the wintery season is upon us, and today’s post focuses on a topic that is near and dear to our hearts. And that is, winter-proofing your hair!
The Living Aveda blog has an extremely timely post for those of us here in the northern hemisphere all about saving your hair from the harshness of winter.
Think of Aveda products as snow tires for your hair! Um, okay maybe not exactly, but it’s always a good idea to plan ahead for potential disasters and rough patches, right?
They offer “why didn’t I think of that” kinds of tips like switching up your shampoo and conditioner to one that is more moisturizing. This is key in the cold, dry air of winter. The shampoo and conditioner that got you through spring and summer with flying colours just might not cut it from now until the snow melts. They also recommend using leave-in conditioner on a day-to-day basis now, just for a little extra protection.
You are also encouraged to become familiar with the dry remedy family as we head into static season. The daily moisturizing oil is designed to treat fly-aways and provide moisture to dry hair without weighing it down. It smells amazing too, just what you need in the dark early hours of the morning for a little winter wake-up!
Rely on our Shampure dry shampoo for hat head – a few puffs of that miracle powder can fix your ‘do so that no one will ever know you just took off your hat/hood/hairband!
As a little aside, we found this handy little article that has some fantastic tips for preventing hat head in the first place!
No doubt we’ll be returning to these tips time and again over the course of the next few months. It’s good to have a little assistance when you’re struggling with dryness, static, and all those other fun* winter conditions.
Wishing you a lovely weekend, friends. Please do drive safe, walk safe, stay safe in this early seasonal snow. We’ll be back Tuesday with more info and a pretty exciting announcement. See you then!
