As the temperature drops and the winds get stronger, we spend more time indoors with the radiator on thus leaving our hair in need of some major TLC. If you color your tendrils then you need something to protect it from the drying heat of the hair dryer, radiator, and cold harsh winds.
My hair tends to get fried if its been color processed but it also looks really oily if I put too much product in it. My solution: Paul Labrecque’s Hydrating Hair Lotion. The hair lotion is a leave-in conditioner that doesn’t leave any oily residue or weigh my limp, fine Asian hair down. It also doesn’t smell like a chemistry experiment explosion or treatment. If my olfactory senses agree with the product, I am more likely to use the product more than once. Upon some research, the product contains aloe vera, seaweed extracts and lavender for hydration. A little product goes a long way. I use 1-2 pumps on my palms and then rub most of the product on my ends and color processed sections.
When it comes to shampoo, I rely on volumizing shampoos to spruce up my fine and limp hair. I change it up with a repair hair wash in the winter a couple times a week to make sure that my hair does not get brittle. Upon reading about the ingredients of Paul Labrecque’s Repair Shampoo; egg, milk, silk proteins, jojoba, and lemongrass – it sounds like an exotic cookie recipe! I had to try it out and it does smell like cookie dough. What a festive treat!

Now my shower smells like a Christmas Bakery because I shower with my Peppermint Hot Cocoa Shower Gel by Philosophy which is surprisingly not sickeningly sweet as it sounds. I am a sucker for anything with peppermint, eucalyptus, mint, and cocoa. Peppermint Mocha from Starbucks here I come!
