During the winter season my hair likes to dry up, become brittle, and not hold any moisture. One day, I decided to change my winter regimen to help protect and keep my hair moisturized throughout the season. Through trial and error I found ways to protect my hair from the cold.
Here are some of my tips:
Moisturize Like Crazy
I spray water and leave-in conditioner mix on my hair in the morning and at night. I find that this helps my hair remain soft and manageable throughout the day. If you don’t prefer your own mixture, head to your local store and try some leave-in conditioners. Make sure you find a product that works best with your hair to keep your hair moisturized and soft.
Once every 2 weeks, I deep condition my hair with a mayo, honey, and egg, and conditioner mix. This mixture restores my hair’s sheen and manageability; also, not to mention, it moisturizes, leaving my hair soft. All it takes is 25 minutes. Don’t forget your shower cap; it serves as a ‘sauna’ for your hair!
Prevent Night Time Breakage
Ah, breakage. If you don’t take proper time and care to prep your hair for the night, it will break. Depending on your hair length, plait or twist your hair, with a product that has hold and can feed moisture to your hair throughout the night. Tie it up with a silk scarf or cover it with a bonnet.
Great for days you don’t feel like doing your hair, head wraps can also protect your hair from the cold winds. I always have a silk bonnet on under my head scarves when I wear a head wrap to assure that my hair won’t dry up or pull on the scarf fabric. Try scarves with prints to complement an outfit.
