5 Ways To Protect Your Natural Hair For The Fall and Winter Months
Posted on October 14, 2015
Looking for ways to help protect your hair this fall and winter? Look no further!
Sweaters, scarves and fro’s oh my! The summer has come and gone. I am not going to lie, the summer was good to my trusty old twistout, but I know the coming months can be harsh on my hair. Its important now more than ever to nurture our hair during the colder months. I’m from Chicago so I have to go extra hard! You know are winters are some of the worst! Long sigh… I’m not ready
I have compiled – ways that work for me in helping protect my hair during the winter months.
Say No To Wool
There are so many super cute wool peacoats and wool hats that are cute to wear, but BEWARE. If your hair falls past your shoulders pin it up or put it in a ponytail while sporting your wool coat. This will avoid breakage from your hair brushing up against your coat. If you wear wool hats, look for ones that are satin lined so that your hair stays protected.
This is a great way to help dry hair during the colder months. Pre-pooing consists of coating your hair with your favorite oil before shampooing. This serves as a conditioning treatment that will help your hair stay moisturized. You can also use a plastic cap and sit under a dryer for added conditioning. *Thank me later* 🙂
Deep Condition your Hair More Frequently
I know, I know you are tired of hearing about deep conditioning your hair by now? But trust me, your hair will thank you this winter. I Deep condition at least once a week. I also follow-up with a leave in conditioner. If you feel your hair is overloaded just deep condition and ditch the leave in.
Break Out The Head Wraps
Head wraps are super cute and a great way to keep your hair out of your way and protected against the cold. I will definitely be purchasing more this winter. Or you can always be creative and DIY a head wrap with fabric, or just use a cute scarf that you have lying around!
Always Detangle Hair While Wet
Never, Never, and NEVER detangle your hair while dry. Your hair should always be wet when you detangle. I like to detangle my hair while I have my favorite conditioner in.
I hope you find some of these tips helpful!
