Fall is here and with fall comes frigid air. As a girl with curly and thick hair, it is important for me to keep my curls moisturized and protected. Dry hair in the cold is not something any girl wants to deal with. Above is a graphic created by hair color company, eSalon that inspired me to make this post about some of my favorite hair hacks.
A good deep conditioner keeps the moisture in for just a little longer. For the ultimate soft hair, spend a minimum of 15 minutes deep conditioning your hair. The extra step will make your hair feel loved. I promise. 😉
Don’t Wash Your Hair Often
When it’s cold outside, it’s not best to wash your hair often. Shampoo strips hair of its moisture, wheter it’s sulfate-free or not. I recommend co-washing your hair. I co-wash my hair between using shampoo and my hair has never been healthier. For those who don’t knw, co-washing is using conditioner to cleanse your hair instead of shampoo. It’s another way cleaning your hair and keeping its moisture.
Protective Styles Are Key
For a black girl with curly hair, my hair is constantly in elaborate styles to keep the brutal wind away. Buns and moisturized twist outs are my go-to hairstyles, when my hair isn’t in faux locs or twists. When it’s cold out, keep your hair away from the dry atmosphere as best as possible. Don’t let your hair suffer from the cold and become dry.
I hope you guys enjoyed these hair hacks.
