How to Keep Your Hair Healthy Throughout Winter
When it comes to my hair, I’ve always been pretty low maintenance. It wasn’t even until a few years ago that I decided to color it for the first time (I won’t count the botched dye job I attempted in my dorm room in college), and before then, the most drastic thing I’d done was gone from really long hair to really short hair. After I had my hair colored, my stylist reminded me that I needed to be using a color safe shampoo. I responded with a quick, “oh yeah, of course!” when in reality I’d never even considered it.
Just a few weeks before, I’d started using Living Proof, so I ran home and checked the bottle—perfect! It was completely color safe, and for the next few years, that’s what we’ve been using. Yes, Rob too!
In early January, I noticed that my hair was feeling drier than normal, parched really. I wasn’t totally surprised. We’d had a few weeks of bitterly cold weather and since getting bangs, I’d been blow drying my hair with every wash. I used to just let my hair air dry, but with bangs, that is no longer something I can do—believe me, I tried, and it’s not pretty!
As I’m sure you can imagine, I was super excited to try a different line of products from Living Proof, meant to rehydrate and restore your hair. My favorite product is the newest product in the Restore line, Restore Perfecting Spray. You simply spray it on your damp hair before styling and it helps to detangle and protect against damage from heat styling, while also hydrating my hair. After a couple of weeks of using it, I’d noticed that my hair was silkier, softer and smoother. In tandem with the Restore Perfecting Spray, I’ve been using Living Proof’s Restore Shampoo and Conditioner, as well as their Restore Instant Repair—which is almost like lotion for your hair. I’ve been applying it to the ends of my hair which always have the most damage, and it’s worked wonders—no more damaged ends! I’ve also been using the Restore Instant Protection, which protects against heat and UV rays. I haven’t had to worry much about UV rays during Chicago’s grey winter, but it’s been great for protecting against heat since I’ve been blow drying and straightening my hair so frequently.
If you’ve been dealing with dry winter hair or damaged dry ends from too much styling or coloring, I can’t recommend this line more. Just adding the Restore Perfecting Spray to your routine will make a visible difference and give your hair more strength and shine! It’ll be perfect for summer too when I’m spending more time outside in the sunshine and swimming in the pool.
Does your hair get dry and brittle during the winter? Have you tried Living Proof’s products before?
