Heey!! Thanks for sending me questions, keep ‘em coming. I love answering them for you! Here is one I received today.
” The weather is getting cooler, how can I protect my hair? It is just below my shoulders for the first time. I don’t want it to break off. Can you give me a few tips or show me some styles. Thanks! “
Here are a few tips and I’ll upload some protective style pictures in a later post.
1) Keep your hair moisturized with water, YES, with water! Your hair needs to remain hydrated in order to thrive in the colder weather. Wet your hair by using a product with water as its main ingredient and lock the moisture in with a leave in conditioner, shea butter, and an oil ( jojoba, olive, almond, etc) of your choosing.
2) Wear your hear in a protective style. ( some folks frown on wearing protective styles in the office but for me, whatever, I want healthy hair ) :) This means keeping the ends of your hair tucked away. Buns, twists, braids, and other up-do’s are good for this. Remember not to tug at your hairline when pulling the hair back.
3) *Wool Collars are HORRIBLE to hair. Letting your hair sweep across wool will surely cause breakage. Add a silk scarf on the collar if you want to rock your wool jackets or coats. ( *cotton has similar effects but wool is the worse of the two)
4) Sport a silk lined hat/cap when out in the cold air. This protects the hair yet you remain fashion forward. Hats are hot this Fall!
Enjoy Your Journeys. ~ Kristi
