Leonor Greyl 'Winterproof Your Hair' Blog Post
Your hair deals with incredible stresses, daily. It is exposed to the elements – sun, wind, rain, heat. It is wrapped in bands, pushed under hats, clipped up, subjected to heat tools and more.
“We need to pay attention to our crowning glory,” says Caroline Greyl, President, Leonor Greyl. “Instead of piling it on top of our heads as we read a book or binge watch our favorite show, this is a time to apply targeted treatments, such as leave-in conditioners, pre-treatments or scalp treatments, no matter the season,” she adds.
After an exceptionally warm summer and mild fall, a wicked winter may be just around the corner. Your hair has undoubtedly been affected by the extreme elements and could possibly be dehydrated right now. Before the chilly winds and snowy skies make their appearance, it’s time to winterize your hair.
Rethink your regimen. If you are using a shampoo for normal hair, change to one formulated for dry/damaged hair, for a few months. Instead of heat tools and hairsprays, try a leave-in conditioner and let your mane air dry. Hair will feel softer and appear more textured.
Condition. Condition. Condition. “We tend to give our hair the basic treatment. We shampoo, but not every day and, if time allows, we condition our hair,” states Greyl. “Neglected hair becomes dry, dehydrated and lifeless. Product builds up on the follicle, weighing it down. It is definitely not ready for the harsh conditions of winter”.
“Our beauty award-winning conditioning masques are deeply reparative and powered by essential oils and extracts; the foundation of the Leonor Greyl brand. Deliciously indulgent, they deliver crucial nourishment and moisture to hair, and are formulated to treat extreme damage, whether hair is thick, thin, frizzy or just stressed from neglect or the environment”, she adds.
