Essential winter tips to protect your locks from drying out and creating frizz.
8. Get a Good Night’s Sleep
All curls can benefit from sleeping on a satin pillowcase as curls and waves won’t dry out so quickly, as they would with a cotton case. You may also opt to wrap your curls in a silk or satin bonnet or scarf instead. Either way, curls will be more defined and less frizzy.
9. Cover Up!
When venturing into the great outdoors, and the dry, cold elements, be sure to cover your curls with a crocheted hat or loose scarf. Don’t allow curls to be “pressed” down onto your scalp. Attempt to pile curls up and not flatten them.
10. Keep Your Body Hydrated
Your hair and skin will thank you for the extra H2O intake during the winter months. Find a water bottle that you can refill and bring with you from home to work, school, visits with friends, etc. All curl types benefit from more water.
Don’t break these three curly hair rules for winter hair care!
Remember, in the winter months with cool weather outside and hot temperatures inside, you curls need TONS of moisture. Leave conditioner on longer in the shower, be sure to only co-wash (that goes for you too, wavies!), deep condition often, and use protective styles!
