Cold weather, overly heated apartments, wool hats, and hot showers mean one thing for your hair this winter, a too dry, frizzy, static mess. Protect your hair from the elements, and avoid looking like a Tesla science project, with these rich, creamy shampoos and conditioners. When styling your hair, avoid gels with alcohol, substitute with enriching pomades that won’t dry out your already beleaguered mop.
