Winter is coming! Just kidding, winter has already arrived, as I’m sure you know.
I take extra special care of my hair during the colder months. The harsh weather can be very drying. With the new season upon us, I honor the weather shift and reassess what my hair needs to prevent it from looking sad and dull.
Plus, it’s nice to start with a clean slate by using new products to freshen things up!
So today I’m sharing my Winter Prep Hair Care Routine featuring the Avalon Organics® Smooth Shine Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo and Conditioner, with my favorite morning and pre-shower activities, too, which help to keep my skin from looking lackluster as well. The problem I face with my hair in the winter is dull, dry strands (and sometimes a lot of static). It helps to use a smoothing shampoo that amps up the shine to keep my long hair from looking tired.

Step One: Dry Brushing
Before showering, I dry brush to exfoliate dead skin cells and stimulate my lymphatic system to drain lymph fluid. Dry brushing feels energizing, supports your immune system and encourages natural detoxification (read this article if you haven’t). It’s great to do first thing in the morning to wake you up! Your lymphatic system is made up of organs, lymph nodes, ducts, and vessels that transport lymph fluid throughout your body, helping to kill off infection, get rid of toxins, and filter out waste. Many of these lymph vessels run just below the skin, so dry brushing can help encourage lymphatic drainage through the skin. (see this article here).
Step Two: Smooth Shine Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo
After gently brushing out my hair, I hop in the shower and lather up with the Avalon Organics® Smooth Shine Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo. This formula clarifies and restores hair that’s overworked or weighed down by product build-up to its natural pH balance to reveal shiny, renewed hair that is silky smooth! I love the light, clean and fresh scent and don’t worry, the formula is not overpowered by the apple cider vinegar! After rinsing, I’ll move onto the Smooth Shine Apple Cider Vinegar Conditioner to further lock in shine and reduce flyaways for a smooth look.

Step Three: Daily Apple Cider Vinegar Shot
Apple Cider Vinegar doesn’t have to end at your hair care routine. Keep the theme going by drinking 1 tablespoon of raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar (with the mother) on an empty stomach to further encourage detoxification and prime your digestion. It’s been shown to aid in weight loss, help balance the pH of your body, and boost energy. The natural enzymes can assist your body in ridding of candida, too! The benefits are endless.
