Hi guys! Happy New Year!
Just as we winterize our cars every winter, I strongly feel that it’s important to winterize your hair as well.
Winter can bring about frigid temps and bitter winds which cause us to turn up the heat in our cars and homes. The heat in turn sucks out every bit of moisture from our hair. We also wear cotton/wool hats that can cause a lot of friction and deplete moisture which is a leading culprit of frizz and breakage of our curls, coils and kinks.
I recommend seeking out satin lined hats for your natural mane during the winter months. The satin lining will prevent the wool/cotton lining from depleting your hair of moisture while preventing dreaded hat hair!..lol.
Using Butters such as Shea and Mango butter will help to achieve and retain moisture due to their abilities to soothe dry/irritated scalp, aid as a natural heat protectant and sealant especially during winter months when use of heat and hated hair appliances is at an all time high. Butters also have a higher capability to soften dry, brittle, fragile curly hair. Using products that contain these ingredients will maximize moisture root to tip. Also, weekly deep conditioning treatments and using a sealant such as Sweet Almond Oil or Shea Butter will enhance moisture even more.
So in an effort to keep my hair consistently moisturized this winter, I came up with a regimen that has been working for me thus far.
I used the following Curls products: Curls’ Creamy Curl Cleanser, Curl Ecstasy Hair Tea Conditioner, Curl Souffle, Goddess Curls Botanical Gel, Blueberry Bliss Control Paste, Champagne & Caviar Curl Elixir, Lavish Curl Moisturizer (2nd day refresher).
I also used Aztec Secret’s Calcium Bentonite Clay as a means of detoxing my hair. You can also use Bragg’s Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar for an ACV rinse. Please see my YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/Cebelamour85 for detailed instructions on how to apply both of these items to your hair.

I hope you find this helpful!
