SILKY SMOOTH, PROTECTED HAIR IN ALL WEATHERS
Humidity and cold are a real challenge not just for our hair's health, but its good looks too. Discover how to guarantee gorgeous smooth hair and avoid frizz, whatever the weather.
How does frizz happen?
Two important factors are your hair's condition and the climate. The cuticle of healthy hair has tight, smooth scales – that's why it looks shiny and under control.
On the other hand, dehydrated hair has a porous cuticle with loose scales. It swells up when the weather's humid and gives hair a dull, puffed-up appearance.
Dry, damaged locks are especially likely to get frizzy, but whatever your hair's condition it's important to take special measures in winter: The cold, rain and wind always dehydrate hair.
How can I keep my hair smooth and shiny?
Hydration and protection are your top solution. Stephan, the Institut Leonor Greyl's color specialist, explains that “smooth hair has perfectly aligned scales which reflect light like a mirror. The healthier and more hydrated your hair is, the more beautifully reflective it will be.”
So hydrate your hair regularly using products which offer deep treatment that slowly penetrates and repairs hair fiber. Masks are rich in water and oil and an easy way to give hair the nourishment it needs. They are your best ally in the fight against dehydrated hair. Every time you shampoo, remember to apply a hazelnut-sized amount of your mask root to tip afterwards to give your hair an instant softness and shine and make it easier to control.

If you're not quite ready to wash your hair yet, Tonique hydratant plumps it up by providing the energizing ingredients it needs to look healthy. This leave-in hydrating mist is easy to use, making it perfect for very dry or curly hair.
Do you usually use a hairdryer or straightening irons? That's not a problem so long as you protect your hair first. Heat and wind dry out hair fibers in an instant, so you always need to apply a styling product to avoid that “straw” look and get healthy, silky hair.
And for the final touch before you go out, your styling product guarantees that your hair stays hydrated and protected from static and frizz all day long.
Which styling product should I go for?
When you need shiny, smooth hair whatever the weather, you can rely on the film-forming proteins in styling products. They create a protective barrier around individual hairs and instantly smooth scales.
If you've got fine or normal hair, opt for Sérum de Soie sublimateur and its hydrating silk proteins. They instantly highlight your hair without giving it that heavy look.
If you've got thick or curly hair, choose Éclat naturel: Because it's rich in shea butter and jojoba oil, it tames even the most unruly hair.
Our extra tip
Be careful when using silicone-based styling products: They give hair a heavy, coated look. Favor natural products which use oil bases and plant proteins when you want to protect and smooth out your hair. They are usually less greasy and more effective long-term.
