Sulfate-Free Shampoo and Conditioner
Sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners tend gentler on your hair and scalp than those with sulfates. These products also guard against friz and protect hair from dryness while maintaining its color. Sulfate-free products can be especially helpful for those with curly hair textures. Organix Renewing Moroccan Oil Argan ($5.79)
Intense Moisture Treatment
Extreme weather conditions (hot or cold) can take a toll on your hair. But, with the proper treatment, your hair can be healthy and vibrant throughout the year. Intense moisture treatments repair damage and prevent further breakage by nourishing strands with much-needed nutrients. These hair masks will keep your cuticles closed, which means healthier hair, less frizz, and more vibrant color! Try Hair Food Moisture Hair Mask ($11.99)
We associate essential oils with soothing scents, but they can also enhance the overall health of your hair and scalp. For example, tea tree oil moisturizes and frees the scalp of bacteria and fungal problems. Lavender oil treats dandruff and itching while controlling breakage and stimulating hair growth. Lemon oil helps control excess sebum (for those with extra oily scalps). Try The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil ($8)
Carrier oils got their name because they carry the essential oils onto the skin. The most widely known carrier oil is coconut oil, which contains Vitamin-E and K as well as iron. It softens your hair, conditions the scalp, and helps re-growth after nourishing damaged hair. Try Nutiva Coconut Oil ($9.34)
Yogurt is a key source of protein for damaged hair. Protein is essential to hair growth as well as your nails and organs. Without enough protein, your body will only distribute the little it has to support your organs, thus leaving nothing for your hair to grow. A protein-filled diet will keep your body and your hair strong and healthy! Try Chobani Greek Yogurt ($2)
