Why does winter wreak such havoc on our hair? Between the blistering winds, frigid temperatures and dry indoor heating, it’s no surprise that the chilly season is prone to stressing out our strands, leaving many of us with frizzy ends, dry scalps and lack-lustre shine.
Just in time for winter, essano has launched some exciting new haircare products that will help protect scalp and hair health, minimise the harsh effects of the cold weather and keep your hair in top shape all winter long.
Turn down the heat and dial up hair and scalp health
Extra hot showers mean extra heat on our scalps! While it might be tempting during the colder months, hot water strips moisture from your hair and leaves it feeling brittle while cold temperatures dry out scalps leaving you itching and flaking. Specially formulated with powerful natural ingredients to combat the root cause of dandruff flakes, these products will cleanse itchy, flaking scalps without over-drying, reduce irritation and rebalance the scalps natural sebum production leaving hair stronger, healthier and rejuvenated.
Protect your colour
Opting for a darker hair colour to match the season? Be sure that salon investment doesn’t run down the drain and protect your winter tones. The Colour Lock and Shine due is formulated with caviar lime extract – known for its rich levels of antioxidants and vitamins – to protect hair from fading while locking in colour pigments and shine intensity.
For the blondes, essano’s Weekly Repair and Tone Mask neutralises brassiness and restores blonde, silver and grey tones back to their former glory. Natural ingredients including Violet Leaf Extract and organic Macadamia Oil smooth, soften and hydrate the hair.
Opt for a deep conditioning mask
Cold, windy days and dry air conditioning can wreak havoc on your hair, so indulge your tresses regularly in a deep conditioning mask to restore moisture and keep hair strong. Choose from either essano’s Keratin 2 Minute Hair Repair Mask designed to deeply penetrate the hair fibre to restore and protect from within or if its deep hydration you need, try essano’s Intense Hydration Mask with Argan Oil. This 5-minute miracle treatment will infuse moisture and restore softness to dull, dry, and lifeless hair. Add in essano’s Keratin Shampoo and Conditioner for that extra keratin boost.
