6 ways to prep your Natural hair for Winter

6 ways to prep your Natural hair for Winter

Here are 6 tip I would give to prepare your natural hair for winter:

 

    Invest in a steamer to use with your Deep Conditioner treatment.

      As the air gets colder, you may find your hair becomes more dry and brittle!  Prevent winter breakage by deep conditioning at least once a fortnight with a steamer! The steam treatment allows your conditioner to sink deeper into your hair to nourish strands and revitalise dry hair textures. Even after the first steam you will notice a dramatic difference in the way in which your hair feels and behaves!

        Pre-poo with a natural oil before your regular shampoo.

          Use a scalp, oil like our Grow-it-long serum, overnight, applied to your strands and massaged into your scalp. Adding a natural oil to your hair before your shampoo, will add extra moisture to your hair, taking away the dryness a shampoo can often effect in your hair.

            Butter Up!

              If you are used to applying a crème moisturiser to your hair, leave-in conditioner or just an oil, try something different this winter. Natural butters crafted specifically for your hair will deliver intense moisture to the hair. Often made with Shea butter, and with no water added they offer undiluted hydration that can increase elasticity, and protect your natural hair from the harsh winter elements. Check-out our 100% Natural hair butter, all-natural and delicious for all textures.

                Heat-free holiday:

                  Ditch the blow-dryer and straighteners this winter and give your hair a break from heat. Any break from heat will strengthen your hair and allow the protein within the hair shaft to remain in-tact. Healthy hair looks and feels alive, although our hair is officially dead, we can keep it vibrant when treated with TLC. 

                    Preserve your FRO!

                      A safe protective style, will allow your hair to grow and be preserved throughout the winter months. Constant manipulation over time stresses our strands, leading to breakage and damage! A safe protective style, freezes the current condition of your hair in time. Your protective style can however damage your hair, if not installed in a healthy way. If for example you are considering braids, ensure they are not tight!  The same for the installation of a weave, or even if you are having locs styled. If your hair feels tight, it is not right.

                        Keep your scalp clean!

                          If you have been co-washing and forgoing a shampoo recently as the weather has been warm, switch this up! A shampoo should be used primarily on your scalp, it will keep the follicles clean and clear allowing for healthy hair growth. When selecting your shampoo it is best to use a formula that is mild, natural and sulphate free. Check out our scalp tingling shampoo, enriched with ginger, and plant proteins.

                          Great for my scalp

                          Love this oil, not heavy, and doesn't leave any residue, keeps my scalp moisturised and flake free, also helped with my eczema.

                          Been using it since August of last year, I like to wait till I get to use a product properly before I write any review.

                          Great buy.

                          Great product!!

                          Love this! Great detangle spray.

                          Nice product

                          My girls and I have all different hair types, I love the moisture it gives us all. The only down side is my kids are reluctant to use as they don't like how it smells.

                          Happy Customer

                          Bought this product for my 8mth old. Was on a search for something that agrees with her sensitive scalp,and already thick hair.I am loving it 😍 will definitely be buying again 😁

                          My scalp tingled with delight!

                          From the second I put this on my hair it felt amazing, my scalp came alive and I could really feel the product working on my scalp, even after rinsing it out. The fragrance is perfect and the foam level is really good, I was quite surprised by how little I needed to achieve a lot of foam. My hair (Type 4c) looks and feels great, no breakage, feels soft and is glossy. I normally dread washing with shampoo as my hair has to "recover" from being stripped of its oils but not today, I felt like something was added for a change. I followed the shampoo, with the Detangling leave-in conditioner but to be honest I could have got away without it as it was so conditioned by the shampoo alone. No tugging, no breakage, it was a dream. Excellent product 11 out of 10!
