When it comes to winter beauty, I’m all about upping hydration levels. From sipping on countless herbal teas throughout the day, to adding a few drops of oil to my moisturiser in the morning, I try to baby my skin and hair as much as possible during colder months. Whilst it’s easy to see winter’s effect on skin – redness, dryness and irritation all show up pretty instantaneously, it can be easy to overlook the damage which is wreaked on hair until it’s too late. Hats, scarves and roll necks can all cause friction with delicate lengths and ends, whilst central heating and continual styling can cause serious dryness too. This year, unless I’ve got an appointment or meeting, I’ve been trying to heat-style my hair as little as possible. I’ve not turned my back on my hairdryer yet, but my use of straighteners has all but ceased, and I’m pretty sure that upping my haircare game alongside this has resulted in much healthier hair.
One of my new favourite routines has been enjoying Innersense’s Hydrating Hair Masque once or twice a week to really give my hair a bit of much-needed TLC. It’s a super thick masque, which I thought was actually going to be too thick for my hair. I couldn’t have been more wrong – Innersense’s Hydrating Hair Masque instead leaves hair seriously shiny, bouncy and soft. I’ve used the Masque in a variety of ways – as an overnight treatment I smoothed it into ends, and left it to soak in, shampooing it out the next morning. As a regular masque, I smooth it onto wet hair and leave it to work it’s magic for as long as I’m in the shower.
With a formula which is full of great for hair ingredients; flax seed, shea butter, coconut, monoi and tamanu oils and quinoa, the masque transforms hair from the first use. My ends, which can feel dried out, are immediately softened up. The masque makes hair incredibly shiny too – it’s really soft, and it doesn’t get so knotty when I wear my hair down with a scarf too. As if the results weren’t wonderful enough – it’s a cruelty-free product, with all it’s ingredients ethically sourced. As you can probably tell, it’s become a weekly treat I can’t live without!
