Wanna Win $50 & Get Great Hair???


Winter is right around the corner ya’ll!  I love this time of year…yummy food, the holidays, scarves, boots, and a dry, itchy scalp.

What? Huh?  A dry itchy scalp!  Yes, you heard me; I am a victim of dry skin and an itchy scalp. Lack of moisture in the winter can lead to super dry tresses.  No one likes to admit it, but it happens sometimes.  I don’t want to walk around with flakes in my hair when it’s not snowing outside!

I recently got to try the new Head & Shoulders Eucalyptus Itchy Scalp Care.  I have never been a one brand kind of gal when it comes to shampoo and conditioner, so I welcomed the Head & Shoulders Eucalyptus Itchy Scalp Care with open arms.  I have extremely curly hair and it’s hard to manage sometimes.  I usually have to put a lot of product on it to moisturize and smooth it down.

I have been using the Head & Shoulders Eucalyptus Itchy Scalp Care shampoo and conditioner for a couple of weeks.  My hair feels soft, my scalp is itch free, and my hair smells fresh and clean!  In the winter we have hot conditions indoors and cold conditions outside, this causes your hair to lose moisture and become dry and dull.


Head & Shoulders collection of soothing products promises to ease your scalp and dandruff problems. With 84% of surveyed scalp issue sufferers concerned about these issues, head & shoulders has combined the effectiveness of their HydraZinc formula to alleviate these conditions leaving your hair beautifully flake free*. (* Visible flakes with regular use. Up to 100% Flake Free.)
If you suffer from dry, itchy scalp I challenge you to try the Head & Shoulders Eucalyptus Itchy Scalp Care.  And if you don’t have a dry itchy scalp I promise you'll love it too! 

How does an extra $50 sound?  I'd love to hear your answers to the question:

“How do you change your beauty routine in the colder winter season from the warmer seasons?"  Leave me a comment to be entered for a chance to win a $50 Visa Gift Card, generously provided to one reader by BlogHer!

I have to use an extra rich conditioner for my hair and also Pond's extra dry cream at night and in the morning for my face! I have very dry skin, especially in the winter!

Andrea said...

I load up on the chap stick and love me some clinque face cream!

Amber's Life said...

I switch to an extra moisturizing conditioner and only wash my hair every other day. I have very curly hair and if I don't do that I tend to look like I stuck my finger in a socket! I also have to change to a more moisturizing lotion. And I have to make sure I put it on the small of my back. If I don't that spot gets very dry and sometimes cracked. I can't ever seem to get enough moisture in the winter!

Anonymous said...

I use a color specifc for dry processed hair and then spray on root lifter plus sleek spray to help with static and then hairspray, shwew!

Lots of lotion plus foot creme for cracked heels.

Cuticle creme my hands dry out so bad.

Multiple lip balms, I especially love Burts Bees this time of year!

I have to use a lot more lotion, lip balm & moisturizers!!

Becky said...

Honestly, my beauty routine is no different for me in winter than it is any other time of the year. That's not to say the weather doesn't change---it does, drastically. I might use a bit more lotion and Chapstick in the winter, but that's about as changing as I get!

Kristin said...

During cold months I use a heavy facial cream at night!

KaHolly said...

I usually have to switch to a different shampoo...this one looks great! I use more lotion and moisturizer, and lip balm.

Karina said...

i use hairspray to keep my hair from getting static-y

Jules said...

My hands gets really dry with the cold of winter, so I slather on the cream. I especially love the one I have from Bliss.

Lip balm is also something I use year-round, but apply several times a day during the colder months.

I seem to moisturize more (hair, face & body) in the winter time. In the summer, I still moisturize, but just not as heavily. I'm a greasy mess in the warmer months, but come cold weather & I'm one dried up, flaky mess. Ha ha ha!

Maria said...

I try to go longer (more days) in between shampooing my hair since it is already pretty dry. Also, use Pond's cream daily and the closest lip gloss I can find.

Joy said...

I use lots and lots of lotion, especially on my hands and feet!

Kelly Massman said...

use much more moisturizers!

thanks for a chance to win!
And, have a GREAT day!

I noticed in the winter my scalp gets super dry and itchy at times. I hate it. So I use moroccan oil or olive oil and wrap my hair in a towel or a plastic shower cap and sleep with it. Maybe once a week I'll do it but usually I forget to or don't wanna deal with the goop

Kelly said...

In the winter I use baby oil gel on my itchy scratchy legs and load up on extra thick moisturizer for my face and hands. I also let my conditioner sit longer in the shower to help make my hair nice and shiny.

Gina M Maddox said...

I use more lotion on my skin to fight the dryness and continue using a great moisturizing conditioner. Thanks for the chance to win!

I REALLY dislike the feel of lotion, but I use some at night...but basically I dry out and chapped for the winter.

karenmed409 said...

My feels drier in winter, and flat from wearing hats..Wash my hair and use a deep conditioner in the winter,
Hardly ever wear eyeshadow during the summer, when winter hits I start wearing again
I change my nail polish a bit and wear more glittery golds, green, or reds for the Holidays.

We all have dry skin around here and the furnace makes it worse, so we switch to really heavy skin creams, usually with nice winter scents (spicy things like gingerbread and cinnamon) and wash hair less frequently and try to shower in slightly cooler water.

Loui♥ said...

with very dry cracked hands and feet,heavy heavy moisturizers in the winter..even sleeping with gloves and socks to get the full effect..
makeup change to a softer lighter shade, still using same basic purples and greens in eyeshadows (i have very greenish hazel eyes) soft peachy coral blush, and a softer coral lipstick.. and of course the magic trick is to drink more WATER to keep hydrated!
the product is interesting.. will definitely check it out! will it work for color treated hair?
hugs..

I need lip balm and lotion almost daily; also drinking more water or hot beverages.

angie lilly said...

The only change I really make is using a humidifier. If I don't use a humidifier in the winter, my forehead gets crazy flaky/peely and no amount of lotion or cream or oil will rehydrate it. But as long as I sleep with my humidifier going, all is right in the forehead world! LOL
