Omg I can’t freakin wait until the cold weather is here. As a Coco girl living in Florida my entire life , you would think I would enjoy the hot weather and not the cold. News Flash, I hate the Hot Florida weather. It’s Humid /Sticky AND my hair nor skin likes it. Don’t get me wrong , I don’t like 10 degree Brick NYC cold . But, I do enjoy a cool breeze from time to time.
As the winter months start approaching, I do change up my daily regimen to add a better protection for my hair from the cold weather. Starting with my shampoos.I usually shampoo my hair just about everyday during the summer months . During the winter I limit how often I shampoo my hair due to me not wanting to walk in the cold with wet hair and me feeling like because its cooler it’s just not needed .
My Hair oils of choice would be a much heavier one like Jamacian Castro oil and Olive oil combined. Their thicker oils that helps to seal and protect my hair better than the coconut oil I usually use during the summer season.Side Note: You shouldn’t use coconut oil alone during winter . The oils will harden on the hair once the temperature hits below 76 F / 24 C degree. If you must use it, it is best to mix it with a heavier oil.
The oil is applied directly on the hair and scalp, covered for about 10 minutes, and shampooed lightly right after. I do this once a week and don’t heat the oil either just to be honest. You can heat the oil before adding to your hair. I just figure I’m going under a heated dryer so what’s the point in heating my oil twice .#IJS
My conditioning and styling products of choice don’t really change. Influence Moisturizing Conditioner and Twist Define Cream By Kera Care always work well with my hair year round.
