Winterize your Curls
My hair has been 100% natural for 4 months now and I must say I'm mighty proud with the texture, porosity, strength, and sheen of my hair ; and for the first time in my life I have healthy ends.
But the thing is natural hair needs specific care and I prefer an all organic approach.
With winter approching its important to be extra careful in your handling of your hair (natural or relaxed).
here are some simple steps to consider:
1. Deep Condition at least once a week. I recommend the LOC Method for my naturalistas.
L- Liquid: I use water as my liquid or green tea to spritz my hair after co-washing( shampoos tend to strip your hair even more in winter
O- Oil: follow with your choice of oil (coconut oil, olive oil, jojoba e.t.c) make sure your also coat your ends
C- Creme/Conditioner: I use Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Creme but any regular leave-in will do. Make sure you run your fingers through sectioned hair to ensure the entire head is coated and not just the surface
2. Drink Lots of water: this is not only good for your hair but overall health. 2l(8 glasses per day)
