What do you do differently in the winter season? More DC, PT, HOT, baggying, glycerin, nothing? Describe your regular hair care session on wash day (products, methods, etc.)?

Oh & daily moisture? Do you do anything special?

These are my curlfessions

So far its been richer products, glycerin and co washing. By the time I tried to up my DC'S to twice a week my hair was already sooooooft.

More deep conditioning (often combined with an oil such as apricot kernel oil) and more hot oil treatments using a blend of oils. As for my daily routine, I use coconut oil and apricot oil to seal instead of one oil. and less protein treatments. Also, more hats are worn when going outside for long periods of time

I switch out all of my humectant-rich products. So if glycerine, honey, etc. is up high I try to switch it out. I also hide my hair more - more beanies/hats get worn as a "style".

This is great stuff. I need more glycerin & a good DC or pt. My ends are thin too. I line by coconut oil but I'm going to look into kernel oil.

Coconut oils is great but castor oil seals all that good stuff in .

Whenever I'm in the Texas pan-handle I have to avoid using humectants since it's ALWAYS dry up here. But for the winter, I try to DC once a week and keep my hair in twists.

I try to stay away from Glycerin and I add castor oil to my favorite oil mix and I use a heavier leave in conditioner

But I still wash and DT once a week and co wash 2 -3 times per week. Always use a leave in followed my oil mix and styler.

I can use a product with glycerin low on the ingredient list. But castor oil is too heavy for me to seal with. I tried that last winter & it didn't work. I need a trim & some consistency with my routine.

As of last week it will consist of
DC/PT/HOT in rotation
ACV rinse
Shampoo
Condition
Curlformers
Daily sealing with nothing but curl sealer
