An extreme seasonal shift not only cues a drastic change in your wardrobe, it also means that it’s time to adjust your beauty routine. During the colder months, it’s all about natural hair moisturizers (after you exfoliate with face and lip scrubs, of course!).

Brown Sugar Scalp Scrub
Brit + Co
If you’re suffering from dry and flaky scalp this winter, a DIY sugar scalp scrub helps you get rid of dead skin and product build-up from shampoos, dry shampoos, and sprays, giving you less of a flat and dull look. It can also help your hair to grow because your follicles won’t be clogged. (via Brit + Co)
It makes sense that bananas would be as good for your hair as they are for you to eat, which seems to be the case for most of these edible hair mask ingredients. The crushed fruit softens and protects your locks while the almond oil holds the moisture in place, resulting in a super smooth mane. (via Free People Blog)
Okay, so there might be two kind-of creepy ingredients on this all-natural hair moisturizer list, and raw egg is one of them. But trust us and the bloggers over at Free People: the power lies within the egg yolk, which is naturally moisturizing and rich in protein. (via Free People Blog)
Alright, here is slightly uncomfortable natural ingredient number two: mayonnaise. This blogger insists you make your own, and since the condiment is made of whisked egg and oil — both repeat ingredients in many of these recipes — it makes a lot of sense after all. Hey, if you can slather it on a sandwich, you can definitely slather it on your hair! (At least that’s what we’re gonna tell ourselves!). (via Bespangled)
This protein-rich milk and honey mask not only moisturizes and strengthens, but it also removes your hair’s dead skin cells (thanks lactic acid!), which results in luscious, rejuvenated locks. Milk: it does a hairdo good! (via All Women Stalk)
