Redhead Beauty Writer Update: My 10 Skin & Hair Must-Haves This Winter

Essentials from a Redhead Beauty Writer

In July 2022, I shared 15 of my all-time favorite redhead-approved beauty products. While I still love and use all those products, I wanted to share my redhead skin and hair must-haves for winter before spring comes. It gets quite cold in the wintertime where I live, so keeping my red hair and sensitive skin hydrated and nourished is priority number one.

Here are 10 products I’ve added to my redhead beauty skin and haircare routines for the colder months of the year.

Must-Have Winter Skincare

1. Peach & Lily Super Reboot Resurfacing Mask

During the winter, my skin seems to be extra sensitive and sometimes I find myself with little bumps, dry patches, and overall uneven skin. This resurfacing mask has been a game-changer. I use it once a week and it totally refreshes my skin.

2. Handmade Heros Vegan Conditioning Coconut Lip Exfoliator

Another struggle I often have during the winter months is dry lips. Keeping my lips hydrated helps, but it’s essential to get off the dead skin, and I love this vegan lip exfoliator

3. Dr. Bronner’s Organic Lip Balm Naked

Speaking of keeping lips nice and soft, this is my absolute favorite lip balm for year-round use. It keeps lips soft and hydrated for hours.

4. Biossance Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Firming Oil

I find myself adding a facial oil into my skincare routine more often in the fall and winter months and this season I am loving this firming oil with vitamin C and rose

5. Modelones Cuticle Cream

When the weather is cold and dry, my cuticles really struggle so I’ve started applying this cuticle cream morning and night and it’s made a big difference!

Must-Have Winter Haircare

6. Pureology Hydrate Shampoo & Conditioner

In my last essentials post I talked about how much I was loving Olaplex, and I still really love how it makes my hair feel, but for the wintertime, I need more hydration than it can offer. So I’ve switched over to Pureology and my hair is softer than ever.

7. Olaplex No.3 Hair Perfector

I like to switch up the hair masks I use and this winter, the Olaplex hair protector has been great for keeping my hair soft and hydrated.

8. Crown Affair The Leave-In Conditioner

Hydration doesn’t stop when you leave the shower and I’ve found that I need an extra boost from my leave-in conditioner during the wintertime. This leave-in makes my hair super soft and accentuates my natural waves.

9. Verb Ghost Weightless Hair Oil

I love hair oil for styling as well as adding hydration to damp hair. I like running this through the ends of my hair in combination with my leave-in products whenever I airdry.

10. Color Wow Dream Coat Anti-Frizz Spray

I love letting my hair air dry, but when it’s cold out I tend to blow dry it a lot more often. This dream coat gives me silky soft hair and preserves my blowout look which I love. Plus, it’s formaldehyde-free which is really important to me.
