Natural Hair Care During Winter Months
|Natural hair care during winter months is tricky. It demands that you institute a regimen that will allow you to maintain adequate moisture.
Need help getting prepared for the season? Here are a few tips for how to care for natural hair during winter months.
Trim Your Natural Hair. Get a trim before winter lands on your doorstep. Hair with damage or split ends will only worsen during the winter season.
Amp Up Your Pre-Poo Treatment. Stay consistent in your pre-poo regimen choosing products that will protect your hair from the cleansing process.
Use Hydrating Hair Care Products. Only use shampoos and conditioners that are moisture-rich. Healthy moisturizers like Amla & Olive Heavy Cream or Pomades like Castor & Amla Nourishing Pomade from Qhemets Biologics can be particularly beneficial for naturally hydrating our scalp, hair, and ends during cold and dry winter months.
Avoid Products that Contain Alcohol. Steer clear of hair care products that contain alcohol. They are particularly risky because they can inadvertently strip your hair of moisture. Creams and moisture-sealing oils are your best option to ensure adequate hydration for your natural hair.
Wear Protective Styles. Protective styles will protect your hair from those low humidity months. Braids, twists, and faux locks require moisture sealing products like MyGel from Joie Naturals that can nourish your hair during winter months so that by the time Spring arrives, hair will be thicker and healthier.
Limit Your Use of Heat. Limit your use of heat during the winter months. Reduce the heat setting on flatirons, hairdryers, curling irons, and wands to avoid natural hair damage or the appearance of split ends.
In summary, your goal should be to use natural hair care products during winter months that will nourish your scalp, hydrate your hair, minimize breakage and promote healthy hair growth.
