The Solution To Your Winter Hair Care Obstacles
That time of year has arrived - some love it, others not so much. The winter season is known for affecting your day-to-day travel, routine, and even your mood, but the one thing it affects that may not be immediately obvious are the changes to your hair.
Our editors know that living in the Zoom-age means that our hair and face are on display all day, and we want to look our best. Typically in the winter, you could get by hiding under hoods and cute beanies… not anymore. Your hair is front and center, but that doesn't mean the winter weather is taking it easy on you or your hair.
Are you getting straw-like strands? Totally normal! Temperatures dropping leads to low air moisture, ultimately drying out your locks.
What about a drier, itchy scalp? Well, all that extra heating in your home is not just drying out your skin but also your scalp (it's skin too after all). And hat hair gets us all this season. Even though you're indoors, who doesn't love accessorizing? That is until you have to deal with hairstyling challenges afterward. On top of this, the store-bought shampoo and conditioner you've been using have been doing you no favors- they're packed with harmful sulfates and parabens that wreak havoc on your hair.
With all of these seasonal obstacles, we've been on the hunt for the best hair care brand to take some of the weight off your shoulders. Thankfully, we found Hairstory, a new way to wash your hair that actually works and is better for you and the planet.
Hairstory is debunking the shampoo and conditioner routine with their New Wash cleanser. This single product cleans hair without stripping your scalp of its natural oil barrier, and as a result not over-drying it. Your hair needs this restoration of balance in the winter, but more importantly all year round.
The problem with traditional shampoos is that they've got detergents that strip this barrier, leading your scalp to overproduce oils and sending you back to wash your hair sooner. New Wash breaks the wash, grease, repeat cycle with one powerful solution.
New Wash works on all hair types (thick, fine, curly, or straight), using essential oils and naturally-derived ingredients to both cleanse and condition. On top of that, Hairstory is sulfate-free and is transparent about any ingredients they use no matter how small the amount.
Your hair-needs change with the winter weather and New Wash Original is perfect for keeping your hair in tip-top shape, no matter the season. However, if you're looking for a formula more tailored to your hair type, Hairstory's got New Wash Rich to provide extra conditioning for dryer hair types, and for those out there with extra oily concerns, New Wash Deep gives you a deeper cleanse by adding argan oil and apple cider vinegar.
Hairstory's the most convenient option out there thanks to their Refill Club. Save 5-10% on their 20oz or 32oz pouches when you subscribe and have your shampoo delivered to your door every 6, 8, or 10 weeks. Plus, you get a free travel container, free shower container, and free shipping always.
While Hairstory has your washes covered for these chilly times they also have styling solutions to add extra moisture. Our go-to is Hair Balm, helping us tackle dryness and frizz. Plus, it's great for curl definition without leaving a sticky, crunchy trace like other products.
Hairstory also has two other winter hero products: Dressed Up, a heat protectant lotion, and Wax. Dressed Up is perfect for these cold months where we find ourselves constantly blow drying our hair; it provides the heat protection your locks need with an innovative lotion. Wax is another tool in our belt to combat that dreaded "hat hair" and reduce frizz. Styling in winter is difficult but not impossible thanks to Hairstory.
We know how hard it is to find a haircare routine that works for you through all the tough weather. Hairstory is our new go-to, especially this winter.
