The Winter season is here and if you are experiencing super dry curls, do not be alarmed, we all are! Most of us have already started to formulate in our heads some changes to our regimens that will help our hair survive the cold and if you happen to be at a loss, you are not alone we are here to help.
We have found that it is very helpful to have some sort of guide or game plan as seasons change because as you know, our environment has huge impact on how our hair behaves daily.
The Winter season is particularly harsh because the air is dry and our strands get very thirsty and in need of extra attention. With that said since we all use the curl typing chart as a guide for our curls, it can be a great place to start when developing a regimen.
In this post we have some simple tips you can use to Winter-ize your hair separated by curl category and along with that list we have also provided a product guide as well. Please note, that you can use a combination of the below if your hair has a mix of curl textures, what is most important is the plan and sticking with it.
Just one step up from a deep wave, 3a curls are big and loose, and tend to be perfectly shiny and full of body all on their own. In the winter, however, the cool weather tends to leave 3a curls dull and lifeless by creating excessive frizz and dryness. To revive and rejuvenate this hair type, you will need to nourish and moisturize your hair daily and use anti-frizz and tangle methods like the satin pillow or “pineapple” ponytail to limit any frizz created at bedtime.
