Winter is the absolute worst time of year when it comes to my hair. My normal ‘so-oily-I-need-dry-shampoo-by-5pm’ takes a bitter turn and my hair is dry and brittle. During the winter I follow a few holy grail guidelines to protect my mane and keep it healthy.

Wash Less

Yes, believe it or not. Less shampoo means more moisture, so to keep the suds away and turn to dry shampoo to get you through an extra day or two. Make sure that you are doing it right and check out my post on the biggest dry shampoo mistakes people make.

Add the Moisture

Opt for a moisture rich shampoo and conditioner combo like the Aussie Moist shampoo & conditioner. These will help lock in the hydration in a time where the moisture is slipping away. Make sure you focus in on the roots!

Deep Condition

Opt for an at home treatment like Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Strong Conditioning Treatment. I’ve been using this since I discovered it in high school. I use it once a week with special attention in the colder months. The 3 Minute Miracle is a deep conditioning treatment will restore your hair to summer brilliance and a few short minutes. I like to use it in the beginning of my shower and then rise towards the end. (I get mine at Amazon!)


These are a few of my favorite things to do to keep my hair healthy this time of year. Taking care of your mane is so important, and these products are a must-have especially if you have any holiday travel on the horizon. What are your favorite tips for keeping your hair strong through the winter months?
