WINTER PROOF YOURSELF #1 HAIR

I don't know about you guys, but the Winter time does nothing for my skin/ hair so I have to take extra care of everything to make sure I don't end up with super dry skin and hair in the winter. So I thought I'd do a mini series of three or four posts talking about what I do to make sure my face, body and hair stay soft and healthy throughout the colder months!
I'm going to start off with hair. My hair, being a not so natural shade of blonde, is prone to getting very dry, but much much more so in the Winter! I know some people say the hotter weather dries their hair out but for me it definitely seems worse in the winter. So these are some products I use and things I do to make sure my hair stays as soft and healthy as possible.

The top photo is all the products I'm loving at the moment for keeping my hair in great condition. I'm trying to grow my hair out at the moment so I'm trying to keep it as healthy as I can. The first product (left to right) is the TRESemme split end remedy serum, this of course doesn't really mend split ends, but it seals them and stops them splitting further. My hair isn't actually very split at the ends, but it is very dry and this is great for smoothing down the dry ends and making my hair look more healthy and bouncy! I also use the TRESemme Split Remedy Leave In Conditioner, which you can check out here, but I can't actually find it to photograph right now!
The next product is a re-inforcing treatment by L'Oreal, this is a scalp treatment, I rub it into my scalp every evening, this is to help stimulate the scalp and encourage hair growth. I don't know for sure how much this helps my hair, but scalp massage is great for hair growth and I definitely want to keep the hair at my roots in the best condition I can.
Next is a Dove heat defence spray, I'm not too fussy with heat defence, especially as i'm trying not to use heat on my hair right now, but I do think this is a particularly nice one. It makes my hair really soft and it smells lovely too! I cannot stress enough how important heat defence is. I used to have suuuper long hair when I was about 14 years old, but I never used heat defence and about 5 inches of it was just totally dead, you do not want to make the same mistake as me!!
Argan Oil is the hair God. This is fact okay? Oils in general are amazing for your hair, I've heard coconut oil is really good, morrocan oil is another good one, even olive oil is great! You can look this up yourself but I swear by this one. This has done wonders for my hair, love love looove! You can get this one in Boots or Superdrug, I'm not sure about anywhere else! It's about twelve or thirteen pounds but it lasts ages so it's definitely worth the money.
The last thing in the photo is Silica Capsules! I tried taking these a while ago for about 3 weeks however I forgot about them! I did notice the difference in my hair a little while taking them, it definitely felt better, but I noticed the difference in my skin and nails much much more! You've got to wait it out to see a real difference in your hair with these I think but I've heard so many great things about them so I'll have to see! I also take a multi-vitamin every day to ensure my body's getting all the essential vitamins as this is probably the most important thing for the health of your hair.
The next thing is brushes! Nothing kills your hair more than a bad brush. I use the tangle teezer to get out the knots, then I use the bristle brush to smooth it out. Bristle brushes are great to distribute your hairs natural oils all the way through, which will help dry ends.
I also try not to wash my hair every day, I'm washing it every other day at the moment but I'm going to try to push it to every three days soon, as too much washing drys your hair out a lot.

Hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know if you have any healthy hair tips!
