Hair Hydration

February 17, 2015

If you follow me on Instagram (& if you don't, you SHOULD! @molliebellezza) then you know I got a little bit of Bayalage in my hair. Since my hair hasn't been lightened for at least a decade, the ends of my hair are feeling a little bit crispy.
Regardless of if you color your hair or not, the winter time always takes a toll on hair. Not only is the weather dry, but added heat styling, especially from the holiday parties, can tend to dry out your scalp and the ends of your hair.
Here are some of my favorites hydrating hair products for all year round, but especially for the winter:

Not Your Mother's Lock Luster Oil Treatment
This argan & macadamia oil enriched oil is alcohol free which right off the bat is incredible, because so many hair oils are not. This oil is really rich, but not heavy, and I apply it on the ends of wet hair and dry hair, all of the time. Plus, you get a TON of product, and it's effective and inexpensive. Also, I can't put my finger on the smell.. but it is diiiiviiiine.

L'Oreal Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm
This is the all-star of the group. It's an amazing, deep treatment for your hair that helps reverse damage, and I've got to say, I've seen my split ends dramatically decrease since using this. I use it about once a week and slather it on my hair from the ears down. To make it most effective, I leave it on for about 5-10 minutes. This balm honestly beats the heck out of weekly treatments that I've used in the past for over double the price of this one. This makes me and wallet, smile.

It's a 10 Miracle Leave in Product
This product really does 10 things, but I think the most important are that it works as a heat protectant, a leave-in conditioner, and a detangler (to prevent your split ends from splitting even further). It's easy and effective. If you're going to pick one thing from the post to try, try this because it really does it all.

Coconut Oil (for hair masks)
Coconut oul is natural and super hydrating and moisturizing. Once in a while (I would say roughly once a month) I will douse my hair in this, from root to ends. It will make your hair soft and moisturized like you can't believe! I like to warm up the oil, which starts as a solid, in my hands and soak my hair in it. Leave it on as long as you want (probably no more than three hours) but don't forget to put your hair up after application so it doesn't get everywhere!! Also wash your hair verrrry well after using the mask, to ensure there aren't any oily spots left once dry. For an extra surge of hydration, add some avocado to your hair mask!

What are your most favorite hair treatments to prevent the winter crispies?
