Winter hair essentials

Wednesday, 3 June 2015


Finding it hard to manage your hair in winter? Retail Box has compiled their list of winter hair favourites to keep the frizz at bay and keep your locks looking amazing and perfectly tamed through the winter months.

Shampoo: Kérastase Discipline Bain Fluidealise Sulphate Free
This shampoo is designed to protect your hair from frizz and humidity for up to 72 hours; it will gently cleanse away any impurities, whilst the pro-keratin formula will restore and re-establish the integrity of the hair. It is enriched with amino acids, a wheat protein derivative and ceramide R to smooth and strengthen your hair, whilst creating an even surface and a hydrophobic layer which protects the hair from humidity. Your locks will be left with natural movement, a soft texture and a frizz-free finish.

Conditioner: Kérastase Discipline Fondant
Say hello to soft, supple hair. This Fondant is created to go hand in hand with the shampoo and work together to create frizz-free locks for up to 72 hours.

Treatment: Redken Frizz Dismiss FPF 40 Leave in Treatment
We all need a good treatment in the winter months so by summer our locks are not frazzled dry sticks that we cannot get a brush through. Varying them is even better and add a moisture treatment to your collection and alternate with this new Frizz Dismiss range from Redken which provides up to 82% less frizz after one use. It provides intense discipline to knock down frizz with lasting control and humidity protection.

Styler: Veaudry iStyler
When the weather is playing into your palms and there isn’t a rain cloud in sight, take advantage and try the new salon- quality iStyler from Veaudry. It ensures the health and vivacity of your hair. The iStyler uses Natural Tourmaline Technology to ensure that your hair is protected and your style has a natural sheen and smooth finish. Veaudry’s Natural Technology ensures that your hair retains its natural moisture and shine through the use of the semi-precious crystal, Tourmaline.

Heat protect: Schwarzkopf Osis+ Flatliner
Designed to be used with irons, this heat protector is essential to protect your hair. It has heat stable ingredients and protects up to 200°C for ultimate heat protection and it has a humidity protector for 30% longer lasting results.

Control Frizz: Moroccanoil Frizz Control
Frizz Control by Moroccanoil is perfect for those of you who suffer from unruly hair, as it guarantees to tame the frizz and static, making your hair calm and manageable. Say goodbye to straw-like hair, whether it is naturally dry, curly or straight.

When in doubt, wear a hat or create a trendy high bun or braid, because some days the rain will get the better of you and no amount of product can save you from “minced” hair.

These bright and colourful Invisibobbles can help you create many different styles to get you through those grey rainy winter days. They have launched a few new colours to keep you on-trend with the winter colours and they have wonderful videos on YouTube you can watch and try recreate your own styles.

    I never ever use any heat on my hair without heat protect, so I can vouch for this being a must!

    I love my Invisibobbles. They’re great for putting my long hair into a secure bun when I shower and also tying it up into a ponytail so that I don’t have to deal with kinks later – big deal for me because my hair is naturally poker straight and long.
