Watch out! The cold winter weather is coming to strip your hair of moisture. You’re going to need to know how you can protect your hair from winter wildness.
Doesn’t only the sun dry up hair?
The air is very dry during the winter and it wants the moisture from your hair.
Do you notice how your hair becomes all brittle once the temperature starts to drop? When your hair strands gets dried out, breakage occurs and causes your whole head to look frizzy-bad. Winter shows no mercy.
You can’t just hide out in your house all winter… unless you work at home like I do. So learn how to protect your hair from winter weather so you won’t be a victim.
What you should do to protect your hair from winter breakage:
♦ Don’t you dare go outside with wet hair. If it’s cold enough, your hair strands could literally freeze and break. If your hair takes too long to dry, you can read an article on how to dry it quicker.
♦ Switch it up from fashionable hats to cute up-dos/braids. Touching or playing with brittle hair can cause intense breakage. Getting it up or covered is the way to go.
Hats will protect your hair from the elements and look adorable while doing it.
Cute up-dos and braids are an easy way to style your hair and not have to mess with it anymore that day.
♦ Brush your hair with a Morrocco Method boar bristle brush every night, like I do. These brushes stimulate the scalp by increasing blood flow and evenly moisturize your hair with the sebum secreted. There are two sizes of these brushes. It’s not necessary to order the bigger size unless you really want it; the cheapest one is fine. If you decide to order a brush, add in a scalp massager too for extra scalp stimulation. (Both of these also help your hair grow faster)
♦ You’re going to need to moisturize your hair on the inside and the outside, with these three ways:
1. Try making it a goal to drink 8 glasses of water a day. Staying hydrated inside is very beneficial to your hair.
2. Look into some pre-poo coconut oil deep conditioning treatments.
3. Shampoo and condition your hair with Acure Organics products. They are everything you could ask for in a shampoo and conditioner, plus more. Acure Organics products are free of all the bad things you don’t want touching your delicate hair.
♦ It would be a good idea to start using a leave-in conditioner if you already don’t. Only use a small amount if your hair is thin or gets oily quick like mine.
You should now be an expert on how to protect your hair from winter weather.
