5 ‘Redhead Friendly’ Winter Skin and Hair Products

Life changing advice and tips!

Updated: October 31st, 2023

Winter is here! Each year I notice my red hair and skin starts to dull. The cold air lacks humidity and without it, our skin and hair can dry out. It’s a recipe for disaster when you add brisk wind and heat styling to the equation.

If you’re like me, then you hate when your red hair lacks shine and vibrancy. Here are my five must-haves for winter skin and hair I personally use:

1. Invest in a shine shampoo

Finally Glossy® Shine & Luminosity Shampoo for Redheads

It took many years to custom-make the Finally Glossy® formula and we’re so excited for redheads to enjoy it. We’re thrilled to release another clean redhead beauty product. It is paraben-free, cruelty-free, sulfate-free, petroleum-free, mineral-oil, and vegan. It also contains no perfume, is free of gluten and is silicone-free, phthalate-free, formaldehyde-free and cocamidopropyl betaine-free. This clean formula is formulated with Vitamin B3, olive oil, coconut oil and green tea.

2. Invest in a good facial moisturizer

I have fallen in love with Clinique’s products after switching up my skincare routine. Clinique’s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion tackles my normally dry skin without any residue. My skin feels super hydrated and has a nice glow thanks to this miracle in a bottle.

3. Don’t skimp on the sunscreen in the winter

I’m serious, redheads! Not only do we need it, but so does everyone else. Although the sunburn causing UVB rays are weaker in the winter, the UVA rays are still strong. I switched to mineral sunscreens this past summer and it was such a great decision! I did a lot of research and Sun Bum just won over everything else. One of the complaints about mineral sunscreens is they’re so thick and hard to rub in. I found Sun Bum to be super easy to apply. Sun Bum Tinted Sunscreen Facial Lotion not only works great as a sunscreen but also as a primer! Double win.

4. Opt for full coverage foundations for extra moisture

Since I have dry skin year-round here’s another Clinique win. I prefer a full coverage foundation, but the trick is finding the right product because you don’t want to clog your pores or cause more dullness. An Ulta makeup consultant recommended Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation + Concealer because not only does it provide full coverage, but it’s also moisturizing. It’s super lightweight and I only need a small amount to get the look I want.

5. Boost your red hair with a microfiber towel

When drying your hair opt to use a microfiber towel! Introducing the How to be a Redhead Soft Microfiber Hair Towel for Redheads. Because wet hair is at its most vulnerable, this custom microfiber towel gently and carefully absorbs moisture from your red hair and dries it quickly, all while protecting it from stretching and breakage. This design is uniquely shaped to wrap all of your hair securely (no matter the length), with an elastic strap to comfortably keep things in place. Your hair journey starts here, redheads.

Take care of your winter skin and Rock it like a Redhead!
