With winter in full effect, it's super important to keep your natural hair as moisturized and hydrated as possible. But don’t worry, NaturAll has got you covered! Keep on reading this guide to learn 5 hacks to keep your moisturized!
Hair Hack #1: Hands off!
One genius hack to keep your hair moisturized is to keep your hands out of your hair. It may be second nature for us to play with our hair all day everyday, but in doing so you are ridding it of some moisture. It looks fine, I promise!
Hair Hack #2: Protective Styles
Next up is protective styles! Hiding away your hair allows it to retain moisture longer. Having your hair in braids, bantu knots, and twists are a great way to allow your hair to seal in moisture. Just be sure to properly moisturize your hair beforehand. We recommend using our Hydrating Avocado Leave-In Conditioner to lock in moisture and make sure your hair is actually protected within that protective style.
Hair Hack #3: Section, Section, Section!
Another genius hack that everyone should know is sectioning your hair off when moisturizing your hair. Using your average scrunchie or alligator clips to hold each section together, section your hair into four sections. Take the time to detangle and add a generous amount of moisturizer to each section of your hair. This will ensure that everything gets moisturized. It's easy to overlook parts of the hair when applying product without sectioning, and we don’t want to neglect any curls!
Hair Hack #4: Satin is for Sleeping
Wrapping your hair up and sleeping on a satin cloth or satin pillowcase at night is a must for any natural! Whether this means throwing on a satin bonnet on your protective styles or using bobby pins to fold your hair around your hair, this will help prevent breakage and ensure that the product is getting soaked into your scalp and hair! Cotton often absorbs oil from your hair and skin, so it is important to sleep on silk! Learn more about protecting your natural hair at night.
Hair Hack #5: Cover Up!
Lastly, make sure to cover your head when you’re out in the cold harsh winds. Weather affects our hair more than we think, and the winter months tend to dry up your hair. Be sure to wear a hat (preferably satin-lined to prevent breakage) or scarf outside to ensure your hair stays moisturized!
