Why Aveeno Oak Milk Blend Collection Is Your Must-Have Scalp Soother

Snow, sleet and freezing ice outside and hot and desert-like temperatures inside combined with 24/7 toque-wearing will not only leave your hair looking flat and full of so much static electricity you could practically turn on a light bulb, it will also dry out your scalp making it tight and itchy. Your best solution is prevention, so washing and conditioning a little Aveeno Oat Milk Blend Shampoo, Conditioner and Mask each day makes perfect sense.

For starters, the line’s main ingredient is colloidal oatmeal extract, renowned for decades for preventing and treating dry, irritated and itchy skin. The oatmeal works its magic by binding to your scalp to create a protective barrier against irritants, while simultaneously pulling a double shift by trapping water into your skin. It also acts as a buffer to maintain your dermis’ pH levels, which are key since they help prevent inflammation and dehydration. The line’s second most important ingredient, almond milk adds more than a splash of hydration and nourishment to your hair, leaving it soft and smooth. What isn’t included are sulfates, dyes or parabens.

The Oat Milk Blend shampoo and conditioner can also be used every single day and on any hair type. The Overnight Oats Hair mask is best used once or twice a week and before bed. All you need to do is emulsify a quarter-size dollop into the ends of your hair and upwards until you reach the mid-section, then go to sleep, wake up and rinse it out with the shampoo and conditioner.

Aveeno Oat Milk Blend Shampoo, Conditioner and Overnight Oats Hair Mask are $11.49 each, available at Shoppers Drug Mart.
