Gallery: Restore Dull, Tired Locks Wit...

Winter can be hard on your hair. The gusty frost-filled air and dry indoor heat have a way of leaving follicles parched, brittle, and in need of serious repair. To soothe, soften, and restore tired locks, Helen Ambrosen, product inventor at LUSH Cosmetics, devised a nutrient-rich hair mask you can easily whip up in your kitchen. Packed with hair- and scalp-coddling fatty acids and enzymes from fresh ingredients such as avocado, olive oil, and honey, this do-it-yourself treatment will bring your hair back to life with plenty of shine to spare.

STEP ONE

Take a handful of rose petals and soak them in 3½ tablespoons of olive oil overnight to create a scalp-soothing infusion. You can also use jasmine or lavender for their softening effects, or rosemary or thyme to tone the scalp.
