Winter-Proof Your Hair

Our top tips for keeping your hair
healthy & hydrated all season long

When the warm weather starts to cool, it’s important to be extra careful about keeping your hair hydrated. Can we all agree that dry hair isn’t cute…..at all?

When hair is dry, your scalp can become itchy, and your tresses can become more prone to breakage – and let’s face it – no one wants that! 

 

Winter weather and other seasonal changes can leave your hair
feeling dry and damaged. Here, we’ve outlined the best advice
for helping your hair not just survive but
thrive this winter.

Start with a clean canvas.

Clear off crispy summer ends with a fresh new haircut. Not a fan of same length hair all over? Scared you’ll end up with a bowl cut?  Don’t fret! Texture is in! Carefully curated texture is much healthier than overdue split ends.

Make conditioner your best friend.[wc_divider style=”dashed” line=”single” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=””]Going into the dryer months, your hair needs moisture. Prep hair with a moisture-rich shampoo and conditioner like the Balance Treatment System.

Washing your hair regularly with moisturizing products can help combat the damage dry winter air does to your hair and scalp.

Pro tip: Apply Rejuveniqe™ Oil Intensive from the mid-shaft down to coat each strand (for at least 10 minutes) with healthy hydration before you shampoo and condition your locks.

Step it up a notch with a hair masque.

Don’t be afraid of over-hydrating – even those with fine hair need moisture to prevent dull color and static. Incorporate the Replenish Masque into your weekly hair care routine for added moisture and vibrancy.

If your hair is on the greasy side, concentrate the treatment on the bottom half of your strands, focusing on the dry ends.

Deep conditioning treatments are also a great way to prevent and reduce hair static (dry hair is prone to static in the winter months because of the lack of moisture in the air).

Beware of toxic chemicals..[wc_divider style=”dashed” line=”single” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=””]
Chemical styling products are tough on hair any time of year, so use them with caution.

Color treatments, relaxers, chemical straighteners and curlers can dry out the hair and render it brittle and limp.

In some some people it can even cause permanent hair loss(YIKES!). Steer clear from toxic chemicals on this list, and instead opt for products that are non-toxic instead.

Finish in the shower with a cold water rinse.

[wc_divider style=”dashed” line=”single” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=””]

A cold water rinse leaves hair glossy and oh-so shiny. It’s not make believe, it’s science! Colder temperatures in water constrict hair cuticles to make strands smoother and more reflective.

Cold water also prevents dirt from accumulating on the scalp and makes hair stronger.

So next time you wash your hair, finish your treatment off with a cold water rinse.

OPERATION CANDY CORN

Helping Foster Children One Costume at a Time

Everyone loves Halloween, especially kids! Halloween is one of the most fun experiences in a young child’s life. It provides lifelong memories, develops self-worth, and allows kids a day of pretending. Unfortunately, many children are unable to participate in this fun, annual experience because they do not have a costume.

 

In a Halloween costume drive, the MONAT Gratitude Squad‬ collected over 100 new costumes. These costumes were then donated to the Miami Dade County Foster & Adoptive Parent Association during a fun-filled Halloween party that included candy, cookies, chips and refreshments.

 

For close to three hours, foster parents and their children were able to “shop” and pick out the costume they wanted to be this year for Halloween. While this was an exciting and fun day for the children, the parents were just as thankful as the kids. Collecting Halloween costumes allowed foster parents to save time and money. With some foster families having 5+ children under the age of 10…that’s a lot of time and money saved!

 

Like you, we want the future to be even bigger! We hope you have enjoyed this first year as much as we have, and we can assure you, this is only the beginning. Together we are unstoppable.

 

It was a great day of giving back to the community for the MONAT Family. It was spooktacular evening of gratitude!
