In The Cold Weather Here Is How You Can Protect And Care For Afro Hair 

Caring Afro Hair 

Especially challenging for Afro-textured hair is winter. Afro hair needs additional care and attention to nourish it and keep it looking its best over the colder months as it is naturally dry and prone to breakage. Your kinks and coils are likely going to be crying out for moisture and nourishment coupling that with the dryness of sitting at home all day with the heating on. On how to care for your curls when the temperature drops we have asked some experts in the field to share their top tips. 

Prevent Breakage 

The fragile hair strands can become damaged when hair comes into contact with wool hats and scarves. The reason could be your scarf or hat if you notice that your hair is breaking at certain points. Kam Davis, CEO, and Founder of vegan haircare brand Nylah’s Naturals says increasing breakage as a result of friction are wool, cotton, and some other materials. Here comes that without treating it whereas the best strategy is in this case comes to prevent the problem. Switch to a silk-linen hat overall or try using silk scarfs under your winter hats. As it doesn’t absorb moisture and is gentle on hair so as to prevent frizz and breakage, silk tends to be one of the best materials to wear around your head and shoulders. To protect it overnight, wrapping your hair in a silk scarf before you go to sleep is recommended. 

Seal In Moisture

It's important to use products that nourish hair and seal in moisture as cold exposure causes hair strands to lose moisture more rapidly. Improving hair moisture content, strength, and elasticity, Nylah’s Naturals Moisture Retention Leave-In now harnesses the power of ingredients that include Davina flower, jojoba oil, and ginger oil to penetrate deeply into the hair fibre. Here you can lock in some much-needed extra moisture. 

Avoid Extra Heat Where Possible

Particularly from central heating, it's not only cold air that damages hair but dry air too could be. When you are drying or styling your hair over the winter months, it is best to avoid or limit the use of any heating devices. As it replenishes dry air with moisture to create a healthier environment, using a portable humidifier at home is great for both skin and hair. Try to let your hair dry naturally as often as possible and where possible braid your locks overnight for styling without the risk of heat damage as part of your winter hair washing routine. As Kam now says to add extra curl definition without applying heat, braiding or banding are two great ways. Leaving them overnight, let the hair dry a little, then style in braids as desired. You will have beautifully defined curls without the damage when you wake up the next morning. 

Switch Up Your Products 

important to ensure that you are using a shampoo formulation that is designed to meet the specific needs of Afro-textured hair while you might have your go-to hair products. A great way to gently care for your hair to get it looking its best is scrutinising your labels and making sure your formulation is free from harsh sulphates, parabens, minerals, and silicones. Delicately cleansing the hair without stripping it of moisture and shine is Nylah’s Naturals Strength and Shine Thickening Shampoo which is rich and creamy. That your shampoo is free from sulphates and parabens, make sure. In the same way, it does during the warmer months you might want to switch products if you feel as though your hair is not responding to your normal products. Salem Wynter-Baxter, founder of Root2tip and ‘hairducation’ expert is of the opinion that to get them through winter many women find that their hair needs richer products. Through the wearing of woolly hats, also the constant rubbing on coats and scarves, your strands will be robbed of moisture. 

Remember Protective Hairstyles 

Subsequently, it does not come to be a question of style in winter that are braids, goddess locks, also straight-backs, and all other variations. To protect the hair from tangling breakage and weather damage keeping the ends of your hair up and out of the way is especially important in winter. As Salem puts it, during the cold months he has always chosen to protective style and harvest his hair-growth. In order to freeze the healthy state, it's in and adds length to it, by harvest he means putting the hair in a protective style be it twists or braids with extensions. When it is not manipulated regularly afro hair grows. To grow your hair out winter is the perfect season. This comes to be especially when you spend much of the year thereby trying out different styles. If we are constantly trying something new, our hair can become weathered and appear worn. 

To Conclude, The Best Dry Shampoos For When You're Feeling Lazy 

Made of 90% skincare ingredients is this new foundation. Protecting it from the elements, a protective style will rest your hair. As women he speaks to often choose the colder season to give their hair a vacation, his hair hates the cold weather and it seems many of them agree. Ensuring you keep up the daily moisture routine, if you do choose the protective style, Salem says you should ensure that it is safely applied to avoid any kind of traction alopecia or unnecessary breakage.
