19 deep conditioners that will bring your dry, straw-like hair back to life
We all know how harsh the winter weather can be on our precious hair. Whether your hair is straight or super curly, the harsh temperatures can leave it feeling like straw and looking lifeless. Going to a stylist to receive professional hydrating treatments can be a hassle (and costly!), especially when you’d much rather stay at home snuggled up.
This season, keep the salon trips to a minimum by trying a deep conditioner treatment at home. Your hair and wallet will thank you. Not only will you beat dry winter hair, but you can use it as an excuse to have an extended wash day.
