Winter may be great for cozying up to a fire, but the season can
wreak havoc on our hair. Particularly in colder months, most of us tend
to have parched skin (thanks to dry, indoor air and frosty outside
temperatures), which extends to a mane and scalp that tend to become
brittle, flake and easily irritated. The prescription: Tresses need
extra TLC, beginning with hydration.
Treat your locks to deep conditioning oil treatments filled with
powerful essential oils that restore hair's strength and shine.
Incorporating regular, at-home treatments into your routine will help
keep hair protected from weather, overstyling and daily damage.
To make sure you're maximizing the benefits of a deep conditioning
oil treatment, Marina Perkovic, a technician at hair-and-scalp salon
Phyto Universe in New York City, recommends using a treatment at least
twice a month. Apply throughout the hair, making sure your mane is
evenly saturated (the front top area of the scalp needs extra
attention, since the hairline tends to take more abuse from styling and
the environment), then clip it up and finish with a hot wrap or towel.
Leave the treatment in for at least 20 minutes (for an extra boost,
leave it in overnight), then wash and condition. Check out a few of our
