- Consider updos to protect your hair (especially your delicate ends) from the elements. Central heat, bitter winds, and the vents in your car that blast heat on high, can all-weather your strands. I’m not really into hiding my hair, but I do tend to bun more often in the winter.
- Deep treat at every styling session. Do as I say, not as I do, lol. When I was doing this, my hair was exquisite. All it takes is 15 minutes… and don’t forget the bonnet dryer, it really does make a difference!
- Look for satin lined hoods and hats to keep the wool and cotton from wicking the moisture from your curls and/or causing breakage. Plus, the satin lining will help prevent hat hair! I’m too cool for hats, but I do line my coat collar with a satin scarf to keep my ends from catching on the rough material.
- Opt for curl creams, not gels for the winter months. Save the gels for summer. Moisture is the goal, and a styler that has moisturizing properties is a win-win.”
I have not bought any products in the last two months!!!!! YAYY ME!! – I have curlbox and it has been serving me up some good products!!! Myleik is the bomb.com let me tell ya!!!
Styles will remain the same, and include protective styles such as my twists, which I will leave in for a few days before takedown.
