Healthy Holiday Hair Guide
Ready to beat dry, dull and frizzy winter hair but don’t know where to start? Tempted to hang on to your toxic hair products for those holiday parties out of fear natural products won’t perform?
Whether you’re struggling with buildup, thin or limp hair, unruly curls or a flaky scalp, LPO’s thoughtful selection of clean, non-toxic and cruelty-free hair products includes REAL DEAL solutions from Under Luna, Innersense and others to cure your every winter hair woe. Here’s what to reach for this holiday season, depending on your hair care needs. Who knew natural could look so good?
If you need to… Detox and Revive Your Hair
The pH-balanced Revive conditioner from Under Luna isn’t known as the green juice of hair products for nothing! Stimulate growth while strengthening, de-stressing and de-frizzing your hair this winter with this all-in-one detox essential. Use Revive as your daily conditioner if you have medium thick to wavy or curly hair, or use it as a hair mask if you have thinner, straighter hair. Revive by Under Luna is safe for color-treated hair, Reiki infused and made with all-natural ingredients.
Don’t let dullness and buildup get the best of your holiday hair. Ideal for all hair textures and types, the Detox Hair Mask by Innersense will have your hair clean, shiny and ready to impress in no time. Charcoal, kaolin and certified organic white vinegar work to draw impurities to the surface of your hair without stripping your hair of its beneficial natural oils. Just leave in for 3-5 minutes and drift away, immersed in the mask’s dreamy sage and vanilla aroma while shea butter, olive fruit extract, quinoa and vitamin B5 work to help you get your glow on.
For extra support, try Holi (mane) by Agent Nateur and Dr. Will Cole to get the healthy hair you’re wishing for this Christmas. Designed to transform dull, fragile hair, Holi (mane) wraps up luxury ingredients like pearl powder, marine collagen, and over 30 trace minerals including silica, magnesium, calcium and potassium to bring you shiny, flowing hair.
If you want… Soft, Fresh Hair On the Go
With options for light and dark hair, Captain Blankenship dry shampoos are the MVPs of our cold winter mornings. Organic arrowroot powder and glacial marine clay absorb oil, boost volume and refresh hair while essential oils of rose, geranium and palmarosa offer an uplifting, coastal aroma to start your day. With the convenient powder sprayer for easy application, a Leaping Bunny certification and recyclable packaging, we’re all in.
Dealing with dry flakes? Flowers in Her Hair dry shampoo from Living Libations is filled with scalp-soothing, flake-banishing ingredients to increase shine and save you time. Putting arrowroot, kaolinite clay, baking soda and silk peptides into action, Flowers in Her Hair brings a calming, spa-like aroma to your day with chamomile, lavender, jasmine and magnolia blossom.
When you’re ready to brush your hair out, grab Tek’s big oval brush. The gorgeous pink lacquer makes for a cheery morning as the handcrafted Italian brush massages your scalp, deters static, improves blood circulation and absorbs excess oils and impurities. Tek brushes are hypoallergenic, 100% FSC-certified and crafted following sustainable principles.
If you’re searching for… Gentle & Effective Color Care
Color Awakening Hairbath by Innersense is safe, gentle and effective for medium texture chemically-treated hair. Raw coconut oil, shea butter, cucumber and avocado provide much-needed nourishment while honey delivers luster and pumpkin seeds preserve your ideal vibrant color. If you love the feel-good aroma of citrus, you’ll enjoy notes of orange, lemon and tangerine in this vegan, gluten free wonder-worker.
If you have… Sensitivities or Scalp Issues
Dealing with postpartum hair loss or an irritated, dry scalp? Grabbing Under Luna’s Warrior shampoo is a must. Encouraging growth and elasticity, Warrior helps revitalize your hair and bring your scalp back into balance with chamomile, aloe and wild yam while promoting a sense of harmony with therapeutic sage and lemon essential oils. Warrior is non-toxic, safe for color-treated hair, and Reiki infused.
Perfect for babies, kids and people with sensitivities to fragrances and strong ingredients, Luna Clear shampoo and Luna Clear conditioner are packed with nutrients like nettle leaf and plantain. Luna Clear’s hydrating blend with chamomile and calendula flower oil can provide soothing relief for minor skin conditions like dryness, eczema and inflammation.
Try Tek’s wide tooth comb to break up tangles, evenly distribute natural oils, sweep away dandruff and stimulate your scalp.

Forget succumbing to harsh chemicals to keep your curls under control. Quiet Calm Curl Control by Innersense hydrates, defines, shapes and de-frizzes curls with ingredients from nature. Indulge in the aromas of orange flower and frangipani while organic shea butter, honey extract and rooibos tea make your curls feel like a dream.
