Updated: May 7

Winter brings a lot of joy, but when it comes to curly hair, it can also bring a lot of stress. That warm and cozy heat inside dries out your hair and scalp. That brisk, cool air outside can cause wind damage and frizz. As a curly girl, I know the many struggles that come with having curly hair. As a curly hair specialist, dryness is always one of the main challenges that people tend struggle with - especially in the winter.

Following these tips will make caring for your curls easier and allow you to focus more on the holidays.

Tip #1 - Satin is Your BFF

Unlike most fabrics, satin doesn't absorb moisture from your hair or rough up the cuticle. This not only helps to keep moisture in your hair, it also helps to prevent frizz. Investing in a satin lined winter hat and sleeping with a satin bonnet or pillowcase are all great ways to reduce the level of dryness in your hair.

Tip #2 - Moisture is Key

Using a shampoo, conditioner and styling products that are geared towards adding moisture will keep your strands looking juicy. I recommend the moisture shampoo and conditioner by Diva's Retreat.

Tip #3 - Make Deep Conditioning a Routine

This is the most overlooked step and the most vital of them all. A deep conditioner is jam packed with moisturizing agents - way more than a daily conditioner. Deep conditioning helps to rejuvenate your hair and give it a moisture boost. I recommend deep conditioning bi-weekly.

Tip #4 - Steaming is an Upgrade

Steam Treatments take deep conditioning to the next level. The moisture allows the deep conditioner to penetrate deeper into the hair shaft; this is especially effective for low porosity hair.

Tip #5 - Exfoliate

As your scalp gets dry, dead skin accumulates and can block hair follicles; hindering hair growth. Exfoliating loosens the dead skin and unblocks trapped hair follicles allowing the hair to grow freely.

Quality Products = Quality Results

The best way to ensure that your hair stays healthy during winter is to prevent a problem before it becomes one. Moisture is the key to maintaining juicy curls. Click here and start protecting your curls today.
