Protective Hair Styles
Now that its getting colder, this could e a great time to wear Protective hair styles. (not that you can wear it any time of the year) This could be wearing wigs, braids, weaves, cornrows, etc. I personally wore a lot of wigs. Keeping it in protective hairstyles is more likely to be less dry and dehydrated. It also retains growth and can cause less damage to your hair
Hot Oil Treatments
This is a great way to keep hair moisturised. The heat opens up the pores and allows moisture to penetrate into the hair. I normally use Olive oil but you can use oils such as Coconut oil, Jojoba oil or Avocado Oil. What i do is i get two bowls (1 large, 1 medium) i pour hot water into the large bowl and oil into the smaller bowl and i then put the smaller bowl into the bowl with the hot water and let it sit there for 5 minutes. I then apply onto my hair and cover my hair with a shower cap and leave for about 20-30 mins. Whilst its in the shower cap, i would occasionally hover the blow dryer around my head.
A satin Scarf/bonnett is great for when you’re sleeping as it retains moisture. When sleeping on a cotton pillowcase, it can cause friction and make your hair dry as the cotton pillow soaks up all the moisture from your hair.
Hair is made out of protein so eating a lot of foods such as salmon, eggs, seafood, meat, chicken, fish as they promote hair growth.
