Conquer the Cold Giveaway #PGMom

Are you dreaming about lazing on a tropical beach, listening to the waves crash on the shore? It’s Winter in Canada, folks! Many of us love the outdoors and activities that Winter brings, right? Snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, skating, hockey, sledding, snow fort building, snow angel making, and snow ball fights! Right?

As fun as all of the above are, we all know that unforgiving Winter conditions (Brrr! Freezing temperatures, windchill, and yikes…harshness on our hair with dryness of air from furnace or electric heaters!!!) all make our skin dry and itchy, and make our hair frizzy and uncooperative. Tell me you love the way you get static from removing your tuque?

To conquer the cold, P&G would like to share the following:

The Issue: Kinky, curly, wavy and unruly frizz

The Cause: Some hair types, like curly and coarse tresses, are just naturally prone to frizz, but more often than not, frizz is a sign of damaged hair. The combination of outdoor air and indoor heating can do a number on your strands, causing frizz, fly-aways and dryness.

The Solution: Moisture. Start by using a shampoo and conditioner designed to fight frizz.  Don’t be afraid to skip washing daily – it’s unnecessary and hard on hair.  Try to air-dry your hair when possible to help reduce split ends from heat damage.  And always use heat-protecting products before heat-styling to help protect your hair from high temperatures and unnecessary breakage.

Product to try: Herbal Essences None of your Frizzness Shampoo and Conditioner’s serum-infused formula moisturizes hair with the right amount of conditioning ingredients for lusciously soft and shiny hair.  $4.49* each

The Issue: Delicate hair

The Cause: Blow-drying and heat-styling tools can contribute to more breakage during the winter. Blistery snowy weather also tends to wet and freeze hair in the cold leading to additional breakage.

The Solution: To help avoid winter breakage, it’s important to get regular trims every eight weeks. Split ends split upwards, so the less one trims, the more breakage they will experience. It’s also important to practise a good at-home daily hair routine in between cuts to avoid breakage and keep hair moisturized. Protect hair against damage from the cold outdoors and styling heat by applying a moisturizing mist that’s designed for daily use.

Product to try: Pantene Pro-V Daily Moisture Renewal Moisture Mist strengthens dry fragile hair against damage and preps it for styling.  Try the Pantene Daily Moisture Renewal line (Shampoo, Conditioner and Silky Moisture Whip) for added damage control. $5.99* each

The Issue: Parched skin from battling ‘Old man winter.’  
The Cause: Dry furnace air, wind burn and warm clothing can lead to dry, flaky and itchy skin. 
The Solution: In the winter months you should moisturize at least once a day and more if you’re prone to dry, flaky skin. Look for moisturizers with petrolatum or mineral oil to prevent evaporation and water loss from the skin.  
Product to try: For an immediate burst of moisture, try Olay Ultra Moisture Lotion. This lotion contains petrolatum and replenishes and nourishes skin’s moisture barrier to break the cycle of dry skin. In one week, your skin will feel noticeably soft. Pay special attention to areas that are prone to dry out quickly, such as hands, elbows, knees, ankles and toes. Adults need about 20 ml – approximately a shot glass – of lotion to cover their entire body. $10.99*
My Thoughts:
I’ve been a fan of Herbal Essences since I was in high school. I love the one that adds volume to my hair. Plus, I love the way it smells! I’m excited to have these as part of my Winter arsenal!
I have also been a fan of Pantene because it always makes my hair feel smooth and silky. I switch between Herbal Essences and Pantene. I guess you can say I’m a loyal brand user, but I not monogamous when it comes to hair products. Sometimes my hair needs Pantene, other times it needs Herbal Essences. 
The one product I absolutely love and cannot live without is Olay Ultra Moisture Lotion. I get extremely dry, cracked skin in the Winter. My feet are an issue. So dry, cracked, and unsightly. My four year old daughter LOVES getting out the Olay Ultra Moisture Lotion and giving her Mama a “foot massage”! Her idea, not mine! 
The Olay Ultra Moisture Lotion really works in moisturizing skin well and leaving it feeling soft and smooth.
You know how I feel about the products. Do you want to try them too?

    My biggest problem in the winter months is dry hair and skin. I have to use moisturizing products in my hair because I want to minimize split ends. My skin needs constant moisturizers. I moisturize my face morning and night and use hand moisturizers throughout the day. Can’t wait for Spring!
