Bye Winter Hair, Hello OLAPLEX Nº.8

Bye Winter Hair, Hello OLAPLEX Nº.8

Right now, you’re experiencing the side effects of winter hair. While we’re a month into winter, usually, our haircare ritual doesn’t adjust until we notice the damage. Winter hair symptoms include dryness, flakiness, lack of shine, and decreased manageability. Here are some ways you can use the internal bond-building moisture repair from OLAPLEX, along with some lifestyle hacks to bring hydration back to your mane:

1. OLAPLEX Nº.8 Bond Intense Moisture Mask- Nº.8 is a unique moisture mask and the only of its kind to rebuild broken hair (disulfide bonds) simultaneously. It’s safe to use as often as needed as its professional quality, non-toxic, vegan, and free from harmful chemicals that dry out your hair. While using this moisture mask weekly will increase the moisture in your hair, the winter months may call for a bit more attention. If your hair craves the extra boost, raise the number of times you mask during the week. 

Your hair doesn’t just become dry because of cold weather. It’s drier during the winter because there is less moisture in the hair, which is how your skin and hair dry out. You might notice an itchier scalp, flakiness, and overall less touchable hair. You wouldn’t skip your moisturizer, so adopt the skincare as haircare method by equally moisturizing your mane. 

Along with OLAPLEX bond-building technology, Nº.8 comprises ingredients also found in skincare like Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Jojoba, Hemp Seed Oil, Rosehip Oil, and Ceramides.

2. Water Temperature- It’s winter, and likely you’re raising the shower water temperature because of how cold it is, but resist the urge. Just as thermal styling fades and damages hair color and integrity, so does the hot water to your hair. If lowering the temperature isn’t in the cards for you, compromise by wearing a shower cap until it’s time to do your hair. 

3. Moisturize Your Hair Regularly- News flash: hair oils are to your hair what moisturizers are to your skin. One in particular rebuilds broken hair while adding shine, moisture, and heat protection up to 450ºF. OLAPLEX Nº.7 Bonding Oil is the perfect size to keep in your bag for moisture touchups throughout the day or your morning and evening hair ritual. 

4. Humidifier- While you’re sleeping, your hair is idly receiving the effects of intensely dry, colder air. Consider remedying the elements by adding humidity into the air with a humidifier. It works like a charm for skin and hair!
