As we leave Autumn and head into Winter, it’s the perfect time to give your hair the extra hydration and nourishment it's craving. The cooler months are a typically drying time for skin and hair and you’ve probably started to notice your hair just doesn’t have the same lustre and radiance it had in summer. At this time of year it’s best to er on the side of less is more, when it comes to heat-based styling. Over-styling with blow dryers or straighteners, combined with the drying effects of indoor heating and the outside elements, can dry hair out further. The solution! A natural hair treament. Using a natural hair treatment once a week (or as you feel your hair needs it) can help to calm a flaky or scaly scalp, lock in moisture, nourish dry ends and provide extra protection when our hair needs it the most. Here's our picks for the best natural and organic hair treatments for healthy, silky Winter hair.
