Man, it’s freezing outside. But no worries, there are plenty of ways to protect your hair from the winter elements!
1. Try Deep-Conditioning Treatments
This season, increase your deep conditioning game because your hair needs that extra moisture. The process of deep conditioning is known to help smooth the shaft of your hair and gain back it’s natural shine.
Invest in a leave-in conditioner that’s hydrating and moisturizing and use it with consistency for best results. Hair Boost or Step 5 Nourish Leave-in Conditioner are fantastic products for maximum benefits!
2. Try Protective Hairstyles
Protective hairstyles don’t only guard your natural hair against the harsh winter weather, they’re also super-cute and fun to rock. Slay and keep your natural crown protected in various styles, from stylish braids to chic bantu knots and fancy cornrows.
3. Avoid winter fabrics
Unfortunately, my natural-haired friends, our hair needs to stay far away from all things wool.
The friction from wearing wool hats or beanies can thin and easily dry out hair.
Try wearing a satin or silk headwrap underneath your wool beanie for protection, or you can wear a satin-lined beanie. Your hair will thank you for it!
4. Try Sleeping in a Bonnet
Don't forget to wrap your hair up before you go to bed!
Sleeping in a bonnet will help protect your natural hair from being dried while the heater is blowing.
Additionally, a satin pillow can also lessen the damage done to your hair while you sleep.
5. Invest in richer hair butters and oils
Swap your lighter hair products (ex. summer products) for thicker, richer ones to keep your hair hydrated in winter.
Shea butter and murumuru butter are great for nourishing the scalp, while oils rich in vitamin E like argan oil and olive oil help to keep moisture locked in.
My Hair Boost Method includes all products needed to give your hair the moisture and nourishment it needs to stay strong throughout the winter season and beyond!
