Holiday Hair Survival Guide

Whether it comes to hair, beauty, or sweet treats, let’s face it, over indulgences are inevitable during the holidays. Don’t let your hair worries stop you from indulging this season, and let us teach you how to care for your hair after all the stress and damage. Read on for our holiday hair survival guide.

Over Styled Hair

From up-do’s to braids and curls, trying out new hairstyles is one of our favourite pastimes during the holidays. All of that styling can however do damage. Take some time and give your hair a bit of TLC by applying Moisture Mask, to help salvage your dry, over-styled hair. Leave Moisture Mask on for 10 minutes to overnight, depending on the length and health of your hair. The mask will penetrate deep into your hair shaft to provide instant and long-term hydrating benefits. Apply once a week for on-going benefits, or as often as needed.

Product Buildup

Applying multiple styling products and finishing sprays can leave your hair feeling heavy, dry and dull. Use Renew, AG’s gentle clarifying shampoo, to get rid of any product buildup, and to take away impurities. Renew is extremely gentle, and safe on colour treated hair. Pair it with a rich conditioner, such as Ultramoist, to enhance its benefits and also incorporate rich moisture into your haircare routine.


Going from the cold outdoors to the heated indoors can amplify frizz and static. Use The Oil to smooth down hair, reduce frizz and add incredible shine to your locks. The Oil will also add moisture, and is small enough to carry in your purse and use throughout the day.

Dull Hair

All of that combing and styling can result in dull hair with no shine. Begin your style by spraying Firewall throughout to achieve incredible shine that will last you all night. Firewall is a heat protector that you can apply prior to using tools, which will seal your hair and protect it from the damaging heat effects, as well as smoothing down frizz and flyaways. Finish off your style with Frizzproof, to extend the shine, and protect your hair against humidity.


While intricate styles look great, they can be a hassle to deal with in the morning. After cleansing, spray Conditioning Mist into damp hair. This will help detangle your locks, and make combing out your style from the night before a breeze. It will also help rehydrate your ends and add shine to the hair.
