Protecting your natural hair during winter

*Affiliate links.

Winter is almost over and I cannot wait for it to end. It feels like the chilly season has gone on forever. I have been rocking my natural hair for some years now and loving it. Sometimes it is a lot harder to manage my hair especially when I don’t have a protective style on for some time but I won’t ever have my hair texturised again. Winter is a very harsh time of the year for the skin and hair, especially when the hair is natural. So it makes sense to think ahead of various ways to protect your hair during winter.

Here are a few tips that you may find useful when it comes to managing your hair during the winter season –

 

Protective Styles

I like to have my natural hair in protective styles. It allows me have a relaxing haircare routine, and it looks beautiful. The fro is currently out to play as I type but I have booked a session with my hairdresser and will have a protective style done in the next few days.

Protective styles protect the hair from excessive breakage and encourage hair growth, which is what every natural hair woman wants. These styles keep the hair ends concealed by tucking them away. This stops tugging, pulling, and manipulation of the hair. Protective styles vary from cornrows to buns, two-strand twists, and braids.

Moisturise

You need to remember to moisturise your scalp as often as your hair needs. I usually moisturise mine and my daughter’s twice a day and that works great for our hair type. Keeping your hair moisturise is very important, especially in the winter months when the scalp tends to be a bit more dry.

Thanks to my amazing spray bottle,  I use water as our main hair moisturiser, along with some hair oil. This combination helps the hair stay hydrated and moisturised. I am currently loving my Cantu hair leave in conditioner and Cantu Shea Butter Hair and Scalp Oil.

Keep the hair clean

Washing the hair is very important as we all know. I like to pay special attention to my hair wash days in the chilly months. My SheaMoisture shampoo and conditioner help me do just that. I have been using SheaMoisture for many years now and it is one of my favourite haircare brands.

Keep your scalp warm

I always wear a hat when it gets really cold, even when I have a protective style on. It is just an added boost, and it helps protect my scalp from the harsh weather conditions. Wearing a hat in the winter months is a great way to protect your natural hair and scalp. I am happy to have quite a few hats at the ready for when I need it.

 

How do you keep your hair protected during the winter months?

Fashion and Style Police Reviews Evolve Beauty

*PR samples.

 

I got the lovely opportunity to review some amazing skincare products from Evolve Beauty. I got 3 products from the brand and have been dying to tell you all about them. It has been a few days of using these products and I love them. I love trying out new products. After a busy day, the first need is to soak up in a bath with lovely products. Or spend some extra minutes (still under 5 minutes) in a warm shower, using sweet-smelling shower products.

Here are my thoughts on these Evolve Beauty Products –

 

African Orange Aromatic Body Wash

This Aromatic hand and body wash is simply refreshing. It soothes and moisturises the skin. The Natural Coconut and Sugar Extracts ingredients help clean the skin whilst maintaining the natural pH balance.

 

PROS
  1. It gently cleans the skin and keeps it moisturised. I like the fact that it does not leave my skin dry like some other products.
  2. It is lightly fragrance with blood orange and vanilla, with notes of spicy black pepper and cedarwood. It is a united fragrance, which means my hubby and I enjoy using it.
  3. I love the compact packaging. Great for taking away on short trips.
  4. The price tag is budget friendly at £5 for a 50ml bottle.
  5. This product is very gentle on the skin.

 

CONS

None.

 

Daily Detox Facial Wash

This Daily Detox Facial Wash delicately cleans the face. The ingredients are amazing. Natural sugars cleanse away impurities and organic aloe vera softens the skin.
