Winter HairCare (Oils, Butters, & Cleansers) ” 4b-4c Type Natural Hair”

Hey guys, its been a minute, but I’m back with another informal post.

Winter is around the corner, which is; in my opinion the best season to get to know your hair.The winter season can dry out your scalp, cause breakage, if you’re not careful keeping your hair moisturized.

Also ins the BEST season to get those second day hair do’s. That way the hair isn’t being manipulated too much.

I want to share some of my winter tips that help during the winter season. Enjoy! 🙂

*WINTER HAIR TIPS*

During the winter hair can be in its most vulnerable state, similar to when your hair is wet. The harsh winds can be damaging. If you love to wear your hair out, such as: twist outs, braid outs, bantu-knots, etc. Make sure your hair is locking in lots of moisture. Oils are best friend during the winter, and you’ll be forever thankful. Here’s my routine:

Create your own essential formula recipe:

  • 1/2 cup of OLIVE OIL: helps protect the ends of the hair
  • 1/2 cup of COCONUT OIL: prevents dandruff
  • 1/2 cup of JOJOBA OIL: locks in moisture
  • 1/2 cup of BRINGRAJ OIL: restores hair PH balance
  • 1/2 cup of BRAHMI OIL: prevents shedding
  • 1/2 cup of CASTOR OIL: protein

*you can use this oils recipe for styling, hot oil treatments,(DON’T HEAT THE CASTOR: will detour the fatty acids).*

*BUTTERS FOR HAIR*

Using butters instead of hair gels, will allow the hair to lock in tons of moisture, stay soft, and able to move freely.

BUTTERS:

  • Mango Butter
  • Shea Butter
  • Kokum Butter

All of this butter help assist:

  • locking in moisture
  • sealing the ends of the hair
  • protects against harsh winter winds
  • fight dandruff
  • assist with hair growth

*Cleansers*

Choosing a shampoo that won’t be harsh on the hair doesn’t exist. So I use a mud wash by Terressentials organic. This mud was is FDA approved.

WHAT IT DOES?

  • cleanses the hair gently
  • moisturizes the scalp and hair
  • restores damaged hair

  1. Do you think a hair steamer is essential to keep hair deeply conditioned in the winter. I don’t have a hood dryer either, but I would like to purchase something to help with intense conditioning and moisturizing. I don’t want to spend a lot of money on a steamer if a hood dryer is sufficient. Please share your thoughts. thank you!

    • No, I don’t think it a hair steamer is essential.
      If don’t want to spent a lot money on a steamer, I so agreed with you. Try conditioning your hair with a conditioner you love,place the conditioner in a bowl, then mix your favorite oil with it. Leave this in hair for an hour. Or try apple cider vinegar. People have used apple cider vinegar for decades as a DC. It works!
      Hope this helps. 🙂
