This extended polar vortex has done a serious number on our hair. And now that Groundhog Phil has informed us that we're stuck with six more brutal weeks of winter, we've decided to pull out the big guns—as in restructuring our usual cold-weather haircare regimen to include more oil-based deep-conditioning treatments and intensive leave-in stylers. Here are four we've recently found ourselves reaching for.
For Supreme Revitalization: Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Omega+ Nourishing Hair Oil, $38
Formulated with great-for-your-hair nutrients, botanicals, and fatty acids such as omega-3 and C-22, this highly concentrated miracle in a bottle gives deeply damaged manes a mini-makeover from the inside out.
For Sleeker Strands: DryBar 100 Proof Treatment Oil, $35
A veritable must-have for DIY blowouts, this dry oil helps tame errant wisps and pesky flyaways while sealing jagged split ends for a smooth, silken finish. Palm a dollop throughout damp hair just before drying and/or heat-styling.
For More Manageability: Carol's Daughter Monoi Oil, $30
Derived from a blend of coconut oil and tiare flower (native to Tahiti), this exotic lightweight concoction is quite nourishing and moisturizing. Just a pump or two helps eridicate extreme dryness to leave limp, lackluster locks looking—and feeling—rather revivified.
For Added Shine: Phyto Subtil Elixir Intense Nutrition Shine Oil, $38
If your hair feels rough and brittle to the touch, massage this conditioning remedy from roots to tips prior to shampooing. It instantly softens strands so your locks look lustrous (and not at all greasy).
