4 Ways to Protect Your Hair During Winter With Rikoko
From snow and wind to indoor heating, winter weather damages hair in a variety of ways—which is why it’s important to give strands some extra loving care. Rikoko is a line of luxury hair products born in the exotic Seychelles Islands, design to heal and strengthen all tress types during even the harshest weather conditions. Rikoko founder Richy Kandasamy shares four ways to protect your hair during winter with a few of his favorite products:
1) Seal hair cuticles. Dry hair can actually cause the cuticle of the hair strand to lift ever so slightly. As a result, moisture doesn’t stand a chance of staying locked into the hair shaft, causing breakage, frizz, static hair, split ends and color fade. Rikoko Lock Reset+Seal immediately seals and smooths the hair cuticle, locking in color to keep hair vibrant during the harsh, unforgiving months. This treatment was created with years of knowledge to produce the ultimate reset, seal and shine.
2) Protect hair color. One of the best things you can do to protect your hair this winter is to hit it with a dose of Rikoko Lock Shampoo. That will not only nourish your hair, but will also preserve the natural oils your scalp produces to moisturize your hair and keep it healthy. Complete the journey with Rikoko Lock Conditioner for a lustrous finish. Key ingredients include coconut oil, vanilla, cinnamon, hibiscus and wild ginger.
3) Fight damage. In addition to your hair being zapped of moisture during the dry weather months, high winds can also cause damage—especially with thicker hair types, naturally curly textures, and long hair that easily snags and tangles. The Prism range of lightweight leave-in conditioners are made to seal, heal and protect against heat, color fade and tangled knotty hair.
4) Prevent static. Let’s not forget the unpleasant effect cold air can have in terms of static. A combination of dryness creates the perfect static conditions. KOKOBALM multitasking solid coconut oil works like a weightless pomade to control flyaways, tame frizz and eliminate static cling.
