Unfortunately winter is still upon us. Here in New York we have been getting some Nor’Easter’s lately which brings the snow and cold. With winter comes conditions that are not best suited for curly hair. This means that more attention is needed to keep the curls healthy. Keep reading to find out some basic Winter Care Tips for Curly Hair.
Winter Care Tips for Curly Hair
This post may contain affiliate links but all opinions are my own.
- If you don’t Deep Condition already, make sure to add it to your kids regiment. We love using the Thermal Hair Care’s Little Hot Head. I would recommend at least once per month at minimum, maybe even weekly depending on how dry your kids hair gets.
- Keep hair in protective styles more often. This will help keep as much moisture within the hair as possible. During the winter curls needs as much moisture as they can get.
- On Wash Day, make sure you leave enough time for the hair to dry before your kids have to head out the door. You don’t want their hair to freeze out in the cold and/or for them to get sick!
- Again, this is something you should hopefully already be doing, but if not, add hair oil to your routine. This helps seal in the moisture and prevent it from getting as dry. Personally we use Righteous Roots Pre-Poo oil. Smells amazing and its made by a fellow business woman!
- Invest in either a satin lined winter hat, or get a satin scarf to put on before your favorite cap. This big slouchy satin lined beanie from Etsy is also a great option for those with kids with a bunch of hair!
- Another option is a set of Ear Muffs (if you kid will keep them on… lol) or a Winter Head Wrap. We tend to go the head wrap route just because they are easier for us to find at stores but think for next winter we are going to order a hat like in #5.
There you go. Those are some basics that you can add to your hair care routine for the winter time if you aren’t doing them already. Do you have any tips that you do in the Winter that help care for curly / multiracial hair? Please share down below if so!
