Winter Hair Care Regimen: Hair Care Treatment for Natural Hair.
Dry and brittle hair is a very common condition that many must overcome during winter season. Winter hair care routine should be an integral part of your grooming routine so that you can flaunt your luscious tresses!
· Your Hair Doesn’t Need A Hot Shower
A hot, steamy shower feels good during the wintertime, but hot water strips off the moisture in your hair, leaving it dry and brittle. Your hair will end up breaking more following a hot shower which is why it’s important to have a winter hair care regimen for your natural hair.
· Minimize Heat Usage
Allow your hair to air dry as much as possible. Using a blow dryer sucks the moisture out of your hair, which increases the chances of breakage. The hot hair from the straightener or heater can cause more damage leading to hair loss in winter months.
· Protect the Ends of Your Hair
Another easy way to minimize heat styling is to opt for protective hair styles. Wigs, sew-ins, twists with the ends tucked in are great for the winter season. Clip-in extensions are also great. They are one of the best innovative methods for protective styling without pulling your hair or irritating your scalp.

· Treat Your Natural Hair
Moisturizing is key for your winter natural hair care regime. You can use oils, hair masks, or leave-in conditioners to help you achieve the best of your winter hair.
Massage your scalp with warm oil to give it a deeply moisturizing effect. There are various oils that you can use based on your preference and what works well for your hair. Just remember to massage your scalp slowly and deeply so that the oil can seep into the shaft and cover the length of your hair as well.
Some of the natural oils that can provide deep and extensive nourishment to your hair include:
- Olive Oil (extra virgin)
- Grapeseed oil
- Avocado oil
- Coconut oil (pure and unrefined)
- Jojoba oil (pure and unrefined)
- Castor oil
You can mix a few oils so that you can extract the combined goodness with a DIY mixture.
· Stay Hydrated
During the winter season, your natural hair need loads of hydration and make sure you’re listening to it. Follow up with a water base conditioner and do a deep condition at least twice a month. Drink lots of water and keep your hair hydrated.
