Breakage, frizz, split ends, oh my. We all know the winter months can take a massive toll on your strands, but master colorist Samantha Harman is here to help.
Whether you’re looking for ways to revive dull, color-treated locks or just need a good hydration boost, check out the products below to help you avoid cold-weather mane destruction.
1. Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream: $34.00
What better way to nourish those tired, thirsty strands than with a styling cream packed with vitamin E? “I love mixing this with the Morrocanoil Treatment Light for the ultimate kick of moisture,” Samantha shares. It also contains behentrimonium chloride, which we know, sounds frightening, but is simply an amazing anti-static conditioning agent that perfectly combats dry weather frizz.
2. Moroccanoil Treatment Light: $34.00
Samantha’s other Moroccanoil fave, the Treatment Light, is a great pick for finer hair. It’s loaded with Linseed Extract which helps to improve the health of hair over time, another critical feat during the colder months to avoid breakage and split ends. “Both the Treatment Light and Hydrating Styling Cream are infused with Argan Oil and the combination [of the two] is going to leave you with smooth and shiny hair with a soft hold,” she says.
3. Schwarzkopf BC Bonacure Hyaluronic Moisture Kick Spray Conditioner: $24.95
She had us at ‘spray conditioner.’ “This is great for a daily boost of moisture. The formula fills in gaps in the hair’s outer layer for a healthy looking shine,” she adds. A great option for textured hair as it instantly lifts brittle curls that are more prone to dryness in the winter.

4. Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask: $38.00
We’re just going to keep saying it, everyone needs a solid deep conditioning mask, especially during the winter. Samantha opts for this glorious one from her beloved brand Moroccanoil. “This five minute hair mask is great for the cold months. It’s going to hydrate the hair while improving the texture, elasticity, shine and manageability. I like to use this mask once a week. If you are needing deeper conditioning, you can even add a few pumps of the Treatment Light into the mask!”
5. Moroccanoil Mending Infusion: $28.00
If you’re in a hurry and need a quick fix, Mending Infusion is exactly what you need. “This is probably my favorite product,” Samantha shares. “It’s a super lightweight formula that mends split ends, tames frizz and prevents further damage. I also love using this to prep my clients for photos in the salon.”
