As the Weather Changes...
As the weather changes, do you change how you care for your hair and skin? I sure do! Like your skin, your hair needs extra moisture in the colder months or it will become dry & brittle. This will very likely result in hair breakage. Although I make an extra effort to protect my hair in the warmer months because of the sun’s harmful rays. The moisture from the air helps to keep my hair moist so I don’t have to add as much moisture, but I do make an extra effort to protect my hair from harmful UV rays. Unlike the warmer months where there is moisture in the air to help protect & care for your hair, the winter months are the exact opposite. I didn’t realize that my hair needed extra TLC in the colder months until I started having so many setbacks from breakage due to dry hair. So make a conscious effort to moisturize your hair, but make sure you are moisturizing properly. Pay special attention to the ends of your hair since they are the oldest part of your hair. Do not forget to seal in the moisture with a butter or an oil. I prefer a modified LOC method which stands for:
is for Loc
is for Oil
is for Cream
My modified version is water as liquid, leave-in conditioner/moisturizer as my cream, oil, then a Shea butter based product.
So my method is LCOB. Try it and let me know what you think. I’ve tried a so many different variations of the moisturizing my hair, but I find this keeps my hair moisturized for at least 2 to 3 days before I need to moisture my hair again. I find that it keeps my hair soft, shiny, moisturized.
