Chasing Davies: Winterizing my hair for colder months ahead

Winterizing my hair for colder months ahead

I always think of my skin come the colder months, stocking up on lotions and moisturizers for every part of my body and face.  I dig out my sweaters and coats, rearranging my closets.  I pull out all my warm living room throws and heavier comforter for my bed.  All that preparation for winter, I find myself forgetting about my hair.  

Dove has a new line of products that nourishes your hair without weighing it down or making it feel greasy, yet leaves your hair 5x silkier when using the complete system!  I've been using the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil trio of shampoo, conditioner and treatment (African Macadamia oil and Coconut oil) and love the way it feels, smells and makes my hair shinny despite the drier and colder weather. Come winter, my hair won't dry out and I'll be ready!

My night time hair routine starts in the shower with Dove Pure Care Dry Oil shampoo and conditioner.  After the shower, I dry my hair with a cotton t-shirt!  Just whatever is clean in my drawer (I'll use a few times in a row before washing, hanging it to dry with my towel). This is one of my hair tricks to lessening the frizz.  Terry cloth towels just pull at your hair in all the wrong ways.  Since switching to a t-shirt, I've had to combat less frizz after each wash.  I continue to smooth and nourish my hair by applying 2-3 pumps of Dove Pure Care Dry Oil treatment.

Then I sleep on it.  On wet hair.  My husband thinks I'm crazy - but it seriously saves me time in the morning (by showering at night) and alleviates my hair from too much heat by cutting out the hair dryer altogether.  And since this treatment oil is proven to absorb quickly, I don't have to worry about getting it on my pillow case. :)

In the morning, I fix my erratically curly and crimped hair with a curling iron, creating soft waves and use a small flat iron to smooth down all my short hairs from post-baby hair loss.
