make sure you have a really good moisturizer/ leave-in and don't forget to deep condition at least weekly. 
weekly deep conditioning, and the loc method. on sub zero days (which can become subzero weeks) i will do my hair the night before and use a gel. 
Shea Butter has become my best friend, along with Coconut Oil
UGH, I think there is nothing worse than dry, winter affected hair. It's either flat and stuck to your head, full of electricity and unruly or it's dry and dull looking while rough to the touch. The most important thing to remember is that your hair is extremely fragile because it's so dry and needs to be treated with extra care and a few extra steps.  It's also all about layering as you would layer your clothes in the winter. For daily care start with Macadamia Professional Nourishing or Ultra Rich Moisture Shampoo depending on your hair texture and type. Gently remove the excess water from your hair by squeezing it in large absorbent towel. Never rough dry it as you can cause breakage and make it look frizzy.  Comb through to detangle using your fingers if you can or a very wide tooth bone comb. Start at the bottom and work your way up the hair strand. That way you are not ripping down the length of your hair and tearing through the snarls. Starting underneath and working up to the top and front, generously mist your hair section by section with Macadamia Professional Weightless Moisture Leave-In Conditioning Mist. This will provide an extra layer of moisture and nourishment to your hair.Weekly or bi-weekly use a combination of the Nourishing Moisture Masque and Moisture Oil Treatment. This combination is the ultimate hydrating, repairing and reconstructing treatment. Just what you need to fight off Old Man Winter. 
Consistent deep conditioning and moisturizing; heavy thick products but not an overload to  induce product buildup
