Winter hair care

So winter is definitely on its way in full effect. Besides staying warm, the most important thing on your winter prep list should be protective styling your hair. The fact is, winter is the most brutal season when it comes to your hair. The cold temperatures, frigid air, and dry heat is enough to wreak havoc on the strongest of locks. Without proper maintenance and a bomb winter hair care routine, your hair can become dry, brittle, dull, and VERY easily broken.

Switching up your normal hair routine by adding more deep conditioning treatments, creamy moisturizers, and limiting the use of shampoo are the first steps in winterizing your hair. Next up, wearing a protective style as frequently as possible. Protective styles are those that literally protect your hair by keeping the ends (the weakest part of your strand) tucked away, require little maintenance and even less manipulation. Some favorite protective styles are wearing buns, braids, or hair extensions. By styling your hair in ways that limit its exposure to the harsh winter months, it will remain healthy and retain growth.

Why We Love Protective Styles

untitled (10)

Let me count the ways. For starters protective styles allow us to be versatile without sacrificing our hair. There is nothing like being able to rock long curly locks one month and then turning around to rock a short sleek bob the next. Wearing extensions make changing the length (and color) of your hair a breeze. Then there’s the fact that protecting your hair can actually promote hair growth and what girl doesn’t want long healthy hair? And let’s not pretend that protective styles give us an excuse to be low key lazy. What other style can you can essentially style installed one time and be done for weeks or even months? Braids are like the busy girls dream style. Regardless of your personal style, there’s a protective option out there to make this winter a breeze on your hair.

Now that your new extensions are laid and your box braids have you feeling extra poetic, the final step is maintaining your style of choice. Don’t be confused, your protective style needs just as much TLC as any. If you’re wearing your real hair in a bun, don’t skip on the daily moisturizing. If you have extensions installed, washing and conditioning should continue as normal. Be sure to keep your scalp well oiled and clean while wearing braids.
