In the winter time we're exposed to more heating, the air outside isn't as humid, and add in those extra hot showers, it's a recipe for a general state of dehydration. Dehydrated hair tends to be more brittle and therefore more prone to breakage. The scalp can become dry, itchy, flaky and irritated too, compounding the hair dehydration. Keep your hair healthy, moisturised & smooth all season long with these winter haircare tips from Apotecari.

> Focus on ways to incorporate more moisture into the hair and lock it in- for example more regular deep hydrating treatments, heavier products and using hydrating serums will help.

> Reduce the water temperature when you're washing your hair.

> In winter time, our thirst reflex is reduced so you can forget to hydrate properly. Increase your water intake via smoothies and soups to accommodate for a reduced thirst reflex.

> Consume more omega fatty acids from foods like fish and nuts. Apotecari Crowning Glory is loaded with plant-based omega fatty acids that provide deep nourishment and supports a calm, balanced, fertile scalp for hair to flourish.

> Use a hydrating treatment weekly, and if you have a little extra time up your sleeve, leave the treatment in and pop a shower cap over the top for an added hydration boost.

> Give your hair the structural reinforcement it needs to prevent breakage with Apotecari Hair Atelier and Apotecari Mane Event. Hair Atelier is contains 74% plant-sourced proteins to fuel the production of strong, healthy and resilient hair and Mane Event contains both Cysteine and Methionine, the main building blocks of the hair.

> Consider supplementing with Vitamin D to account for reduced sun exposure during winter. Vitamin D is a potent anti-inflammatory (so it’s great for those over-dramatic scalps!) and is intimately involved in the hair follicle cycle. You’ll find this in Crowning Glory.

> Slough away dead skin by using scalp scrubs such as Apotecari 5-in-1 Scalp & Shampoo Brush.

As seasons shift, our environmental exposures change along with our diets and the types of activities we enjoy.

Adjust your haircare products and routine with the seasons, and with the evolving needs of our scalp and strands. Skintellectuals do it with their skincare routine. Hairtellectuals should be doing the same.
