8 Tips on How to Best Winterize Your Natural Hair Regimen!

I know you are like wait – oils don’t moisturize?! True – although there are moisturizing oils and sealing oils. What’s the difference? Moisturizing oils are able to penetrate the hair shaft and are best used with water based leave in or water. These oils are best used to oil the scalp and banish those winter flakes.

Examples: Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, and Avocado Oil. Sealing oils are used to lock in the moisture and don’t penetrate the hair shaft. These types of oils sit on the hair which make them excellent for shine. Examples: JBCO, Grapeseed, and Jojoba.

I personally like to oil my scalp daily and seal in my moisture with my hair oil especially during these winter months. If you seal in your hair with an oil after you moisturize your hair your moisture level remains intact a lot longer. *Remember if you suffer from a dry itchy, flaky scalp – oil your scalp when needed to shut this issue down.

Hot Oil Treatment

I love giving my hair and scalp this ridiculous effective treatment. You can do your hot oil treatment before you wash your hair or after you wash your hair as it is super versatile. I have even slept overnight with mine!

Hot oil treatments are so beneficial as they will soften, detangle, moisturize and will make your curls, coils and kinks pop! I didn’t do many of these this summer but now that the weather has changed I will be bumping up this treatment to pamper my curls and bring them back to life.


Leave-In Conditioner

I know some naturals feel for their texture some LIC’s are just way too heavy for the summer – but for the winter it’s a necessity! Most naturals will agree with me that conditioners are a naturals best friend so how amazing is it use one that you can leave in.

A good LIC will perform as a first level of protection and nourishment for your hair. My LIC not only moisturizes, adds shine, strengthens, and defines my curls but preps them for other steps.

As the winter environment leaves our hair dry and thirsty this product will ensure to effectively treat and condition your hair.
