….silicone-based leave ins and serums, as they not only help lock in the moisture in my hair, they also keep my frizz at bay.
I know I know, you worked all summer to get your hair to be as beautiful as it is, and the cool months are the best time to show it off. You don’t have the humidity to worry about, the heat won’t make you sweat, and let’s just be real – no one is expecting you to go anywhere near a pool. However, the winter is not your hair’s friend. Make sure you protect your hair as much as you can! You can do this with natural styles like bantu knots, buns, twists, braids, or even wigs and weaves. Cold wind will throw all your good progress down the drain, so the more you hide that hair this winter the better.
Beware of the hat
Hats. Although they can make a bundled up outdoor outfit look at tad bit cuter, your hair is screaming for help underneath. The wool and cotton is not only drying to the hair, hats may rip, tug and pull out your strands! I try to combat this by investing in a a silk/polyester scarf or cap. Put this on over your hair before you top it off with the hat. It will provide your hair with a protective layer, and you can still get your warmth on.
Trim, Trim, Trim
I think I am more afraid of scissors than I am of water when it comes to my hair. The thought of chopping off my hard earned locks hurts my soul. Yet, if there is any time better to get a good trim, it’s the wintertime. The last thing you want is for your hair to have split ends, and the winter weather just has a field day with your hair. By the end of the winter your hair will look like that of a scarecrow…no pretty.
