You know winter is here when your strands are full of static and look lacklustre. Does this sound familiar, ladies?
Frosty months can be hair’s worst enemy (from freezing temperatures to strong winds to salty air and hats, everything wreaks havoc on your darling tresses), but there are some great hacks that can help strands survive throughout winter with minimal damage. Here are some of Remy Girls best tips based on hair type. You’re welcome.
Normal to Oily Hair
During the cold season this hair type will mostly benefit from a rich and nourishing moisturizer, and we believe natural ingredients, such as shea butter and avocado to be your best bet (crush them to form a thick paste and apply it like a hair mask). In order to remove product residue, wash thoroughly with a clarifying shampoo then follow with a generous coat of moisturizer and allow to set for 10 minutes. Rinse well and enjoy your shiny mane.
Women with naturally curly/kinky hair should make friends with honey. When used together with a conditioner enriched with natural oils (avocado, olive), this awesome natural product works as a humectant and helps hair retain all the moisture it needs. Add a few drops of honey (we love nutritious Manuka) to your conditioner and work it into your natural coils. Luscious locks guaranteed.
Fine tresses may be soft and shiny, but they are delicate and need special care in winter. Fine and thin hair gets oily really quickly normally but, if this is the story of your life, you must resist the urge to wash it daily. Enter dry shampoo, a priceless haircare invention that will help you skip a couple of shampoos every week keeping your oily scalp in check.
Of all hair textures, this is the one that aches for hot oil treatments in winter (we swear by black castor oil to soften hair and relieve a dry scalp). Simply coat your strands from root to tip and sit under a bonnet dryer for 10-15 minutes to let the heat help the precious oil soak into your scalp and hair. Ladies with bonded hair weave extensions should not apply heat to the scalp as the wefts may slip.
A little extra care goes a long way, so include these tips into your haircare routine and your natural locks won’t even notice it’s winter.
