10 Products To Have On Hand For Perfect Winter Hair

Instagram/@lacandco

Just like different seasons call for new makeup and skincare routines, the changing seasons also requires incorporating different techniques and products to maintain healthy hair. And as we enter into some of the coldest months of the year, you may have already noticed the drop in temperature and simultaneous blasting of indoor heaters has started to take a toll on your locks, leaving you with staticky hair, a dry scalp, and serious styling problems. During the winter months, your locks need a lot of tender loving care, as the cold, dry air can cause the cuticle layer of the hair to lift, and as a result, moisture doesn’t stand a chance of staying locked into the hair shaft, leaving you with dry and frizzy tresses.

To ensure you know how to protect your hair and your scalp during the winter months, we rounded up our favourite 10 products that will leave you with stunning hair, regardless of the weather.

This styling tool doesn’t just dry your hair, it also quickly creates frizz-free volume at the root, and beautiful curls at the ends with a single pass.
