As the last of the summer heat begins to be replaced by that cold, drying air; it’s time to consider mixing things up a bit. The light, care free styles are long past, and the ends need to be tucked away and certain products swapped out. It’s a slow process but can be easily achieved. If you know what’s good for you!
Products first. You could try to get away with those lightweight products of the summer. But … it’s time to bring out the big guns. Denser, more viscous products are in order to add that extra layer of protection from the cold winds and drying air. My homemade Shea butter mix is my staple favourite, and never does me wrong. But equally, a store-bought butter can do the job just as easily. Also consider upping how often you deep condition and moisturise nightly. How can you seal your hair if you haven’t replenished it!
And those ends! They are super important and as the oldest part of your hair, the most delicate. Consider doing a protective style with synthetic hair, or something simple that gets you from A to B is a nice long-term option. It’s very easy to neglect your hair routine when PS (which I’m totally guilty of) but you got to keep yourself in check for your hair’s benefit!
If you’re wearing hats or scarves (basically anything that can touch your hair) beware! Those fluffy yet comfortable materials are a pain and can do a lot of damage. Keeping the hair up and off shoulders, or wearing hats lined in satin (or have your bonnet underneath) gives you that extra security level in making sure that your hair thriving despite the weather.
