So this winter, I have noticed more shedding than my usual on my last wash day. I am pretty sure it has something to do with these harsh cold weathers, so my hair is having a bit of a hard time adjusting. I have come up with a new winter regimen plan to keep my hair healthy and moisturized.
Items I will be using:
- Shea Moisture’s Raw Shea Butter Line
- Deep Treatment Mask
- Transitioning Milk
- Extra-Moist Detangler
- TRESemme conditioner (for extra slip)
- Olive oil
- Black Castor Oil
- Jojoba oil
- Palmer’s Coconut oil Protein Treatments
- Wash once ever 2 weeks
- Washing my hair every week is a little hectic for my hair right now for this season so I am going to prolong my wash days to every two weeks. It seems that my hair is going through winter shedding and I don’t want to cause anymore additional shedding that it is already doing now. I will shampoo once a month with the Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Shampoo and cowash the next wash day after that since this line is very gentle with cleaning. I will be switching back and forth with conditioner or shampoo just to go by what my hair needs. I want to stick to the Raw Shea Butter line because it the ingredients in it includes Shea butter which is a great sealant for the cold months.
- Protein Treatment once a month
- My hair has been pretty weak so I will be adding protein treatments and alternating with deep conditioning just to keep my hair strong as well as healthy looking. Breakage is a big thing for my hair in the winter, so I need to do as much as I can to prevent that.
- Add hot oil treatments
- This is a great way to add moisture and shine to my hair the night before washdays. Since my hair is colored, the shine to my hair has been depleted a lot so I will be using Jojoba oil, Castor oil and Virgin olive oil to bring back that shine.
- Protective styling
- Afros isn’t the best style for me to go to this season so I will be doing twists, buns and up-dos to keep my hair out of the elements as much as I can. It is also a good way to protect my ends from damage as well.
- Trim as needed:
- I plan to do a decent trim towards the end of the season but if I need to dust my ends when they look funny then I will.
However this is not set in stone but I do plan to go by it. If I have added or subtracted anything on the list, I will let you guys know after winter is over. I do think this will help my moisture and shedding problem. So lets see how it goes! If you have any winter plans you have been doing for your hair please feel free to share below!
