Dry January? We Don't Think So


We are officially in the midst of the winter months, and unless you’re one of the lucky ones with a flight to somewhere exotic, it unfortunately looks as though the cold weather may be sticking around for a little while longer. But this isn’t always bad. Free diaries after all the madness of December, means you can cosey up in your new lounge wear, or visit frost-covered locations with stunning views on your January winter walks. What’s not to love?? Well, there is one thing – the effects of these cold months on your hair. Trust us, if you’re one of these people, you’re not alone. Constant changes in temperature and the weather can leave your hair feeling dry, brittle and even damaged. However, don’t panic – this isn’t permanent! There are loads of ways you can restore your hair, lock in that moisture, and feel fabulous once more. We are here to let you in on some easy changes you can make to help deal with your dry hair this January. Just like with anything else; your skin, nails, your hair just needs a little bit of extra TLC!


As you would’ve guessed, using heat to dry and style your hair (just like too much exposure to the sun) can seriously dry out your locks and cause breakages. Letting your hair dry naturally on occasion or rocking the au-naturel look on a night out can really help your hair to retain its strength. However, we know this is easier said than done! You should always go out looking and feeling fabulous, with a sleek straight style or classic curls. I mean, why not? Luckily, we have just the products to help - using a salon-quality heat protection can shield your hair and leave it feeling sleek and shiny.


Product pick: Neal & Wolf Miracle Rapid Blow Dry Mist

This Blow Dry Mist is simply a MUST have – it’s ideal for use with all heat styling. Not only does it protect your strands from thermal damage, it reduces frizz, static, it even helps to refresh your colour.

Simply spray onto wet or dry hair from the roots to the ends and you’re good to go!



When you do come to wash your hair (reminder, not as frequently!), using a professional, good quality conditioner can help combat those brittle ends. Commit to using a leave-in conditioner once a week, this will work wonders to regain healthy and vibrant hair.


Product pick: Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Replenishing Priming Leave In Conditioner

If you haven’t felt the effects of this product yet, then trust us, you and your locks are missing out.

Say goodbye to dry frizz and hello to glossy, liquid hair!



When you kick back, put your feet up and treat yourself to a face mask – why not also add in a hair mask too? Using a mask once a week will contribute to the overall health of your hair, they are extremely easy to use and take no time at all and give you an excuse for a good pamper session.

Hair oils (in our opinion) aren’t spoken about enough and are our stars of the show for Dry January. There is often the notion that oils will leave hair feeling greasy, but rest assured – there’s no grease around here – just shine! If you do nothing else for your hair this January, invest in a good hair oil!!!

They can be used in so many ways; to touch up your locks throughout the day or as part of your nighttime routine – well who says you need to be awake to look after your hair? You can even team them up one of the hair masks we mentioned earlier. Combining a mask with an oil makes a killer due in helping your hair combat dryness. When you’re sitting down for your next hair mask session, why not take it one step further and mix it with your favourite oil. Simply add a couple of drops with your mask and distribute throughout your hair – the results will be amazing!


Product pick: Amika Glass Action Universal Elixir

And finally, don’t neglect your stylist!

Even though there are wonderful products to use at home, nothing is better for your hair than a salon cut. Make sure you book regular appointments to prevent split ends and you'll leave feeling completely refreshed and fabulous.
