Maybe try using a hood instead of a hat? If your coat doesn't have a hood, you can buy one of those scarves that can be pulled up into a hood shape.
Where I live, it is winter for about 6 months a year, and that's how I deal...the loose shape of the hood keeps in heat and protects my hair from wind, but won't push against - or crush - your hair. Hth!
Finer, mixed with coarser strands, low-porosity, wavy curly whirly hair...3A, 2C hair. Medium thickness, medium elasticity.
S-shaped hair with corkscrew ends. My hair is even more confused than me ;p
My hair officially hates protein Once a month is enough!
Currently a fan of TiGi products, (rock on, TiGi Curlesque styling creme!) but that will soon change - I am a self-avowed product junkie! Yay!
BIG fan of supersoaker method - thanks Rudeechick!
