Winter wreaks havoc on lovely locks, turning soft and silky post-summer hair into a frizzy, brittle mess by March. The lack of moisture in the air, combined with blow drying (a must when dashing out after a shower in freezing temps!) leads to especially thirsty tresses. You could try a store-bought deep-conditioning treatment, but why not stay warm and cozy at home – and skip the sulfates, SLS and artificial fragrances – and make your own with coconut oil? This tropical treasure is brimming with healthy fats that hydrate and nourish hair while also soothing your scalp.
