OUR BEST HAIR CARE PRODUCTS FOR DRY HAIR IN WINTER
During winter, the low moisture in the air can lead your hair to feel a little dry. So, look for a nourishing system of hair-care products—including a shampoo, conditioner, and hair serum—like the L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourish Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris EverCreme Deep Nourish Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Deep Nourishing Treatment Serum. Our EverCreme Deep Nourish system gently cleanses and conditions dry, brittle hair, replenishing vital nourishment and deep moisture for silky-soft texture and shine without weighing your locks down. Use the hair serum as needed to give your strands nourishing hydration. Apply it post-shampooing, focusing on lengths and ends. You can also use the hair serum before shampooing to nourish and protect your strands or after styling as a finishing touch.
OUR BEST HAIR CARE PRODUCTS FOR DAMAGED HAIR IN WINTER
Damaged hair could use a little extra love—especially during the colder months. Look for a system of hair-care products—shampoo, conditioner, hair mask, and leave-in treatment—formulated for damaged hair. Try the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Repairing Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Repairing Conditioner, L’Oréal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Damage Erasing Balm, and L’Oréal Paris Total Repair 5 Protein Recharge Treatment. Our Total Repair 5 system helps care for damaged hair without weighing it down. Once a week, use the hair mask in place of the conditioner, leaving it on for three to five minutes, then rinsing out. You can use the leave-in treatment after shampooing and conditioning. Apply a small amount to wet hair, then style as usual. If you notice your strands are in particular need of TLC, you can swap the conditioner for a daily deep conditioner, like the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Rapid Reviver Deep Conditioner.
OUR BEST HAIR CARE PRODUCTS FOR FRIZZY HAIR IN WINTER
Static, frizzy hair is a common complaint in winter—so look for a system of shampoo, conditioner, and hair serum formulated to address frizz and smooth your strands. The L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Smooth Intense Frizz Taming Serum does just that. This system helps soften and tame rough textures, leaving hair ultra-polished and frizz controlled. After shampooing and conditioning, apply one to two pumps of hair serum to damp hair, distributing evenly, then style as usual. You can also use a small amount on dry hair to smooth flyaways and add shine.
OUR BEST HAIR CARE PRODUCTS FOR COLOR-TREATED HAIR IN WINTER
If your hair color is looking a little dull these days, it’s time to switch to a system of hair-care products formulated for colored hair. Our Color Vibrancy Protecting system, including the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Protecting Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris Elvive Color Vibrancy Repair and Protect Balm, helps protect hair color to keep it from fading so quickly. Use the hair mask in place of the conditioner once or twice a week. Apply it after shampooing, leave it on for three to five minutes, then rinse out thoroughly with lukewarm water.
