*~*...as the sun cools off and the chill gets stronger...*~*
...We switch up JUST a bit on our hair are regimen. With three daughters and myself set on keeping our hair healthy and retain our growth, it's a MUST to switch up every now and again.
Now, we're on the West Coast, so snow and REALLY cold winters are NOT a part of our lives out here... BUT, with the colder weather comes some changes.
So, what do we do on The Avenue in the colder months???
***In the colder months, I don't wash our hair as much. I don't even RINSE our hair as much. It's not necessary on our hair. It doesn't get as dirty as it does when the sun is constantly beaming down on us.
***I do a DC treatment once a month/month and a half. The DC treatment consists of:
Cholesterol Conditioner with Aloe Extract
Natural 7 Oil
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Olive Miracle Growth Oil
(mix it together, apply it to our water wet hair, cover w/a plastic baggy for 30(Choca), 60(BB), 120(CC &I) minutes, rinse out and style)
***Protective Styling!!!!! You all know I'm a huge fan of it all year-round, but it's a MUST during these months. (1) - The least amount of manipulation possible. (2) - Less work for me! :)
***SEAL, SEAL, SEAL!! Again, that's another year-round thing for me, but during these months, it's imperative to keep the ends right and tight, so they don't split and dry up. How do I do this?? Well, if you must know:
Suave Professionals Humectant Conditioner
Suave Professionals Damage Care
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
That right there works WONDERS on the Avenue!!!
My favorite greases for the winter??
Why? Because they are thick and keep our hair protected in the cold weather.
***Hats, Kufis, Tams, Beanies, Scarves, etc. We are all about covering our crowns and keeping them safe!! :)
***And, of course we always cover our heads at night with satin bonnets or du-rags!! That is another year-round deal over here!! :)
However, other than that, our regimen is the same. :) Again, where we stay, it doesn't get too cold . So we don't really have too many changes to make (YAAAY US!)
So, that's our Winter Hair Care Routine!! Pretty basic (the way I like it), and easy peasy! :)
I hope you find this post helpful!!!
