3 Amazing Body Lotions That, Honestly, You Could Also Dab Into Your Hair a Little Bit

It’s getting chilly out there, which means it’s more important than ever to keep your skin and hair hydrated, usually with different products. Sometimes, though, it’s okay to put, like, a tiny bit of lotion in your hair in certain situations (like when you run out of conditioner, when you need a quick touch-up, when you’re having a 4 a.m. crisis and all you can do is dip your head in a gloppy tub of Olay, etc). Right? Here are three awesome body lotions that you should definitely use on your skin but also maybe dab into your hair a little bit, like if you want to—because you definitely could.


Kiehl’s Crème de Corps (Kiehl’s, $29.50 for 8.4 oz.)

This luxurious lotion is rich and non-greasy, and is sure to infuse your skin with absolute radiance—not to mention, you could probably put a little bit in your hair, since that shit has been looking deathly dry for days. Dab the tiniest bit onto your split ends to give them the soft, sexy, “I look fine haha of course I’ve had a haircut since March!” look. I mean, it couldn’t hurt, right?



J.R. Watkins Body Butter (Amazon, $11.99)

For those cold winter days, soothing body butter is a must. This fantastic cream also comes in a little tub-thing, so there’s a lot of it—much of which can be used to put in your hair for some extra moisture, if you decided you wanted to do that. Because, I mean, you could. We’re not saying you should slather it on your head like your life depends on it or anything. Just put a palm-sized amount in your hands, rub them together, and run your fingers through your hair, super casual, like you were the one who invented it. It’s kind of like licking a battery—you gotta ease into it, but it’ll be worth it!


Dove Cream Oil for Sensitive Skin (Target, $7.39)

This one is the perfect moisturizer for even the most sensitive of skin and the finest of hair. It’s soft, gentle, and totally okay to put in your hair if you’re out of conditioner, want to tame flyaways, or just want to have a little fun. Do you want your hair to be as shiny and vibrant as a horse’s tail, all with the perks of not being flecked with horse dung? Then here’s the answer! Whoa—who would have thought you could put this white cream meant for skin in your hair instead of your white cream meant for hair? Weird, right?



It’s 2015, and you can do what you want—that means living your life freely, pursuing your dreams, occasionally stealing napkins from Chipotle, and putting maybe a little bit of lotion in your hair. Either way, you’ll look smooth, sleek, and effing unpredictable!
