By creating so many illusory images of physical perfection, whether on store aisles or store front ads, magazine covers or TV shows, we speak more to the profit margins of companies than the self-esteem of today’s girl.

Winter Hair Regimen For Natural Hair

Just when I thought that this year’s weather was pretty much ok considering the time of the year, winter decided to pop up out of nowhere. No warnings! So I guess, it’s time to update our regimen to keep these tresses looking fresh. Check out these top “winter hair” tips!

  1. Deep condition: Deep conditionning is a vital step especially during winter as it allows to keep your hair soft, strong and moisturised. If you want better results use a plastic cap or a steamer to help the conditionner further pernetrate the hair strand.
  2. Protective styles: Box braids, twists, senegalese twists, buns… There is a large variety of hairstyle you can test out but it is very important that you keep those ends protected from dryness and breakage.
  3. Hydratation: Apply a moisturiser of your choice regularly to nourish your ends. Make sure that your moisturiser contains water. An oil, cream or butter will work just fine.
