I think it’s safe to say it’s winter time for most of us, right?! Last winter I experienced how to manage a TWA during winter but now that I have a head full of hair – game on! I have seen many naturals talk about winter regimen vs. summer regimens and I always wondered what the difference was.

Although I personally believe in giving your hair just as much attention in the summer vs. winter there are a few ideas, tricks and suggestions I have that will aid in making sure your hair is tangle free, moisturized without a dry scalp!

A lot of naturals love to protective style during the winter and if you are one of them – no biggie if that works best for you and your curls, coils and kinks… just please don’t neglect your hair. Let’s take the time & resources we have been given to ensure your hair isn’t dry & brittle this winter. Calling all dry naturals with itchy scalps… tired curls, coils and kinks!

Co-wash and shampoo

This would be the time of the year to back away slowly from the shampoo and run to your co-wash!  I am all for a healthy balance of co-wash vs. shampoo but if your hair is really dry during these winter months and scalp is always flaking then how often you shampoo may need to be cut back.

If you choose to shampoo always use a sulfate free moisturizing shampoo this will ensure more moisture stays on your hair and doesn’t get stripped.

We naturals don’t need any additional help on losing moisture. Co-washing is a staple routine of mine and I make sure to use one that has cleansing properties and will ensure to leave my hair soft, moisturized, tangle free and curls defined.


Hair Moisturizers

Moisture is the key! I would highly recommend a rich butter or cream during the winter months. A lot of naturals complain about not retaining moisture very well during the winter months.

If you normally in the summer moisturize your hair once a week or every 4-5 days. I personally moisturize daily whether I am going somewhere or not.

I always spritz my hair with my DIY hair refresher prior to adding my hair moisturizer to help the moisturizer better penetrate my hair shaft.
