As anyone who’s ever retreated to, say, an Alpine spa town or a Japanese onsen resort in winter will attest, this season can bestow beauty on a great many things. Hair just tends not to be one of them. Wherever you find yourself surrounded by cold outdoor air and heated indoor air, parching is sure to follow, likely accompanied by static, brittleness and dullness. To help you offset all of the above, we’ve rounded up some of the most hydrating, nourishing and soothing products the clean haircare world has to offer.
Infused with the likes of morete and sacha inchi oils, Rahua’s new Enchanted Island Collection not only helps restore moisture and shine to your hair but also helps support conservation in the Galapagos Islands—and takes you on a mini-getaway in the process with scents of guava and coconut.
To address the twin seasonal issues of itchy, flaky scalp and desertic strands, Ceremonia pairs the beloved Papaya Scalp Scrub and Babassu Deep Conditioning Hair Mask into the Sunday Reset Duo, though you clearly need not wait for the weekend for this home spa indulgence.
Among the simplest and most moisturizing regimens in existence, Innersence Organic Beauty’s Hydrate Trio helps you combat seasonal woes with Hydrating Cream Hairbath, Hydrating Cream Conditioner and Sweet Spirit Leave in Conditioner with the likes of shea butter and monoi.
For start-to-finish moisture, frizz-fighting and luster, JVN Hair offers a Deep Hydration Routine, but the products are sold a la carte as well, so at a minimum—if you haven’t yet tried the widely beloved Pre-Wash Scalp Oil or Nourishing Shine Drops (silicone-free)—now’s the time.
Having first made its name in science-driven clean skincare, Augustinus Bader has turned its high-powered lens on haircare, where the new (and already award-winning) The Hair Oil (strengthening, detangling, softening, shining and frizz-controlling) is particularly winter-worthy.
A year-round cult favorite—but a particularly handy tool for winter—La Tierra Sagrada Hair Treatment packs copious coconut oil (a factor to consider when you’re storing and opening the jar) along with palo santo essential oil, meadowfoam seed oil and other wellness wunderkinds.
