The Two Products That Guarantee Endless Good Hair Days This Winter

Sign. Us. Up.

Whether you love or hate winter, there’s one thing we can all agree on: It can wreak havoc on your hair. From the icy temperatures outdoors to the drying heat inside, the winter months are arguably the worst for Canadians in terms of our strands. In fact, over 50 per cent of Canadian women say that their worst hair days occur during the winter.

The main reason for winter hair woes is dryness: the combination of the elements, lack of moisture in the air and winter environments (not to mention heat styling and colour jobs) causes moisture levels in your strands to deplete, leading to dullness, split ends and breakage. And since winter air often has low or no humidity, static is often significantly worse in the winter, resulting in fly-away strands that are extremely difficult to maintain – especially with winter hats that create friction. Staticky hair is so dreaded that 60 per cent of women would prefer to avoid wearing a hat in the winter, choosing the cold over the risk of a bad hair day. #WeveAllBeenThere.

While having good hair days in the winter may seem impossible, there is a solution: Pantene’s Repair & Protect collection. As the number one conditioner brand in Canada, it’s no surprise that the brand has created the perfect remedy for winter hair stress.

The Repair & Protect collection is designed to protect your hair from the winter elements by using a blend of nutrients, antioxidants, and micro-moisturizers to hydrate every strand, thus reducing hair friction and that dreaded static. The carefully balanced moisturizing ingredients in the collection include lipids small enough to penetrate deep into the core of each strand — even more than common conditioning ingredients. This helps retain moisture from the inside out, and the additional moisturizers mimic your hair’s outermost layer to seal in all that hydration.

The formula itself is non-greasy and very hydrating, but won’t weigh your hair down. In other words, you won’t have to compromise volume. In fact, it’s so powerful that it has been proven to help repair six months of hair damage with just one use.
