the solution to your winter hair problems is j. law-inspired.

Unless you've been living in a cave for the past week, you've probably heard a lot about Jennifer Lawrence's recent chop, like when it happened, why it happened, if you should do it... I could go on forever, but instead, let's talk about a different aspect of the Oscar winner's hair: its texture.

As I write this its snowing out my window in New York, which is a huge bummer for hair everywhere. Winter means dry, static-y, stringy, lifeless hair for most people. Even thinking about it is making me cringe. But there's hope! This photo of Jennifer Lawrence from the world premiere of The Hunger Games Catching Fire proves that Lawrence knows the secret to keeping hair heathy and voluminous 24/7. Just check out her shiny, tousled locks--I mean, regardless of how long or short your hair is, you probably want it to look just like J. Law's. 

So go ahead and treat your hair to something special. 

SHAMPOO IT: Garnier Fructis Fortifying Shampoo -- $4.35

I'm a big believer that good hair shouldn't break the bank, and this shampoo from Ganier Fructis is my proof. Every winter I switch to the shampoo and every winter it helps my hair be less angry about the cold weather. 

REPAIR IT: Kerastase Ciment Anti-Usure -- $18

Apply this wonder product to the ends of your hair after a shower, lather it up, and let it sit for one to two minutes. Then rinse it off and let hair dry. I promise the ends of your hair have never felt softer, healthier, or more luscious as they will after using this treatment. 

STYLE IT: Davines This Is An Invisible Serum -- $17.99

Serums are the way to go in wintertime. Instead of making your hair frizzy or sticky, this serum from Davines will give it a shiny texture while still allowing you to style it as you please. Apply it to damp hair from root to tip and then let it dry as normal. I put my hair in two buns to dry so that it has some soft waves.
