It’s official. The groundhog saw his shadow and graced us with 6 more unwanted weeks of winter. That means 6 more weeks of delayed school openings, canceled dinner plans, and puffy coats and snow boots covered with that annoying film on dirty snow covered cars. Bleh.
It also means 6 more weeks of dry hair and scalp. The winter weather and dry indoor heating can wreck havoc on hair, especially ethnic hair, making it brittle and dry, thus more susceptible to split ends and dandruff.
The solution? Moisture. Moisture. And moisture. That’s why I was excited to try Head & Shoulders new line of hair care specifically formulated for textured hair. The Head & Shoulders Moisture Care Collection includes a shampoo, 2-in-1, co-wash and scalp soother.
The co-wash is great for when I wear my hair naturally curly. Co-washing, if you’re unsure of exactly what it is, is washing your hair with conditioner to ensure that dry/curly hair isn’t stripped of the precious oils it needs that washing with regular shampoo can cause.
Although my hair is naturally curly, in the winter I tend to wear it straight so the 2-in-1 wash is perfect for me. It contains vitamin E rich almond oil, coconut essence and dandruff-fighting ingredient zinc pyrithione (ZPT), which help combat the damage constant use of the hair dryer can cause. Before washing, I also used about 15 pumps of the scalp soother to cool and moisturize my scalp.
I had great results with the 2-in-1. I never thought that I could just use one product for washing and conditioning, but I could with this one. My hair was flat, limp, and dull beforehand, and afterwards my hair felt soft and smooth, but I still had great body and shine.
While I wish tomorrow I would be waking up to 75 degree weather instead of black ice warnings, good hair days help ease the pain. Thanks Head & Shoulders 🙂
