Winter hair care tips

The winter air can be particularly drying. In the winter months, many naturals struggle with retaining moisture and preventing breakage.  With a demanding schedule — work, school, family — keeping natural hair healthy during the winter months can be even more daunting.  But just because you are busy, does not mean you have to fall victim to winter breakage.  Here are some tips for winter care, even a busy natural can use.

Use A Milder Shampoo

If you’re not already using sulfate-free shampoo, then you may want to make the switch during the winter months.  this time of the year you don´t want to use hard products on your hair.

Deep condition with a good mask.

Too often, busy naturals forego deep conditioning because they “don’t have enough time”.  But all you need is 10-20 minutes. You don’t need to condition overnight or an all day conditioning session. 10-20 minutes — preferably with heat — will suffice.  If you buy a product like the Pure hair mask, you can condition your hair while completing your house chores.  Deep Condition and use a moisture based leave in to boot! This way you’ve got the prefect trifecta of moisture happening on your tresses.

Wash Your Hair Less Often

 Are you using a milder shampoo and deep conditioning, but still experiencing dry hair? Then try washing your hair less often. If you’re shampooing twice a week, try once a week, but no less than bi-weekly.

Pre-Poo Before You Wash Your Hair

To protect your hair from the drying wash process, pre-poo your hair with your favorite oil and/or conditioner. A coconut oil pre-poo is the best and prevent damage during your shampoo session.

Steam Your Hair

 The key to moisture is water.  During winter months, the dry, winter air (with no humidity) leaves our strands thirsty.  To avoid saturating your hair on a regular basis, try steaming your hair.  You don’t even have to sit under a steamer. You can simply steam your hair while taking your shower just forget about that shower cap.

Wear A Hat

Protect your hair from the cold, winter hair by wearing a hat.  Just make sure that you either line with silk or wear a silk cap when wearing wool or cotton hats.

Trim Your Ends

 The dry, winter air can result in dry, brittle hair.  Make sure that your ends are healthy by trimming away any split ends.

Seal Your Ends

After you’ve trimmed your ends, don’t forget to seal your ends to reduce splitting and breakage.  Use a Hair serum to seal your ends to protect them from the dry air.

Massage Your Scalp With Oil

 Are you suffering from a dry, itchy scalp? Consider doing scalp massages with an oil like jojoba oil or Jamaican black castor oil.

Avoid Blow-Drying Your Hair

Although winter is officially “straight hair weather”, it’s important to note that blow dryers rob your hair of a moisture. So if you are already battling excessive dryness, then you may want to avoid using your blow dryers.

Drink Water (And Eat A Balanced Diet)

Hydrate and nourish your body from the inside out.  Healthy hair starts from within so drink up!

Handle With Care

In the winter months, your hair may be a bit more dry.  Dry, brittle hair is more fragile. Even if you are properly moisturizing your hair, you should take the time to properly detangle your hair.  Try finger detangling and/or the use of a of seamless comb. Only handle your hair if it is pliable.  If your hair feels dry and brittle, first spritz with water or steam before handling.

Use natural, sls free mild shampoos and conditioner all year around but specially in the winter.

About the Author:

Pure natural cosmetics is not just a name, for me and many others it became a way of life!

All my life I had an affinity to healthy life style. As a dancer and a trainer, i was always looking for the good combination of healthy food and healthy movement.

In time I learned that its not only what you eat that matters. Also what you use as cosmetics or medical products is important.

The skin is the biggest organ in our body. About 60% of what we put on our skin gets into the blood system and with that to the inner organs.

I invest my heart and soul into “Pure natural cosmetics” and the best part is to hear the amazing comments from my client.
