Summer humidity seems a distant dream, but winter brings a whole new set of hair woes: Indoor air sapped of moisture and painfully low temps outside. Fear not – with some bright new products and some good old standbys, beautiful holiday hair can still be ours.
John Frieda Frizz Ease Hair Serum Extra Strength Formula ($9 at drugstores) uses silicone, aloe, and vitamin E to make breakage and frizz things of the past.
For the Earth mothers among us, Head Organics Hair Serum ($14.40 at headorganics.com) delivers the similar benefits without parabens, sulfates, glycol, gluten, and animal testing.
Put Argan oil, the latest wunderkind of the beauty world, to work on your hair with Moroccan Oil’s Oil Treatment for All Hair Types ($13.99 at sleekhair.com) The light oil absorbs quickly into strands and imparts a brilliant shine on top of all that moisture.
Amikole’s Hair Butter ($11 at sheabutter.net) taps shea butter and rosemary to treat hair to a hydrating escape. Unlike the leave-in treatments above, this sweet-smelling paste can work as a conditioner, mask, or a styling aid. A little goes a very long way.
