Curls, Cold Weather and Care … Oh My!
Many of us naturals and curly heads know that as the
winter approaches, our two best friends are
moisture and protection. Here are a few curly hair
tips to help get you through the season.
1. DEEP CONDITION weekly to restore much needed
moisture to your hair. Colder months require double
the moisture to help protect your curls.
2. MOISTURIZE your hair daily using our Style & Seal
Method. Our Style & Seal Method is a great way to
ensure your curls stay protected and moisturized.
Simply select a water-based moisturizing cream for
styling and then seal with a light oil or butter to help protect your hair
& ends from the elements.
3. RESTORE, REFRESH, REPLENISH, & REAPPLY lost
moisture to your curls. Colder temperatures can and
will zap moisture from your hair the longer you are
exposed to the elements. Don’t be afraid to reapply
moisture to your hair throughout the day as needed.
4. PROTECT your precious curls from the air by
wearing more protective styles and accessories.
Ponytails, braids, twists, braided extensions, etc.
are all wonderful ways that many naturals style hair
to protect it from damage. Any style that will
protect your ends from dryness will work. Hats and
scarves are not only great for upping your style
factor, but are also great for covering your hair
from the wind.
5. HOT OIL TREATMENTS are also excellent ways to further protect, seal in
moisture and soften curls during the winter season.
