As the weather cools and dries out, your hair may start to look and feel a little different. No matter the season, having the right haircare products makes all the difference in the health of your hair and how it behaves. We’ve compiled a list of our favorite products for this time of year. Often as the weather transitions towards winter your hair will start to feel more dry, lose its shine, and feel less soft. All of the products on our list focus on hydration, softening, protection, and shine.
First up is Oribe’s Supershine leave-in moisturizer. As the name suggests, Supershine is ALL about adding shine to your hair. It achieves this by providing hydration, softening the hair, and sealing split ends. It can be used on wet hair (combed through for maximum moisture) or dry hair (as a smoothing finishing lotion), and is amazing for calming frizz, taming flyaways, and enhancing shine. It is amazing for extensions and also includes both UV and heat protectant.
Next up is a product that may seem a bit unusual. Oribe created a line of “power drops;” highly concentrated treatment serums that amp up certain effects when added to other styling products, while also being able to stand on their own. For the current autumn weather we recommend the Hydration & Anti-pollutant booster power drops.
They are deeply hydrating, seal in moisture, and protect against free radicals and moisture loss. Using these drops can also shield your hair from oxidation and damage caused by air pollutants. It includes hyaluronic acid, which if you’re familiar with skin care, is key for retaining moisture. They also enhance softness while restoring manageability. The best way to use them is either 5 drops in wet hair by itself or 2-3 drops mixed in with your favorite Oribe product.
When it comes to hydration, there is no better savior than Oribe’s Signature Moisture Mask. It can work well with any Oribe shampoo, but we love to pair it with the Signature Shampoo for super rich deep conditioning effects. We’ve chosen this product because it’s the perfect solution for the drier air outside. It restores moisture and softness leaving it super touchable.
It is also weightless so it can be used on all hair types and textures. In addition to the ultra rich hydration, the Signature Moisture Masque has reparative effects and preserves both your haircolor & keratin treatment. You use it as often as once a week in place of conditioner and should leave it on for at least 10 minutes, but it can really stay on as long as you’d like!
Don’t let the name of this one scare you away. Oribe’s Gel Serum is pure magic and nothing like a typical gel. It’s considered a “gel for flexible hold,” but it’s really more of a serum. You may be noticing a trend on this list—this product is also all about moisture and shine. It even has gold sparkles in it that illuminates the hair.
It provides a gorgeous, sophisticated hold with shine and absolutely none of the stiffness typically associated with gel. It’s both conditioning along with having styling agents. Altogether it’s pretty much liquid gold—anti-aging, moisturizing, reparative, provides great hold, great shine, and doesn’t weigh the hair down. Blown into the hair it leaves you with super shiny and very healthy looking locks.
No Garnish product list would be complete without a curl-specific product. We’re pretty much obsessed with Oribe’s lightweight glossing gel, Curl Gloss, and it works amazing for both curly and straight hair. It can be used when you air dry your hair or it can be blow dried into the hair.
Either way it provides definition, memory, and hold. Like everything else on this list, Curl Gloss hydrates and softens, leaving your hair defined, but still touchable. It has anti-humidity agents, UV protection, and it protects both your color and keratin as well. In addition to all of these effects, it also adds shine and controls frizz—both super important for curly hair, especially in this weather.
If you haven’t already gathered from reading this list, the most important factor when choosing you fall haircare products is moisture! Your hair may still be recovering from damage from the Summer elements and paired with the current drier air it’s super easy for your hair to become dried out and brittle.
Focus on moisturizing, repairing, and protecting your hair and the health and shine will quickly return! If you ever need a personal recommendation for haircare products, be sure to ask your stylist!
