                                                                                                                                     deep conditioning
 During the winter months, many people struggle with dry and brittle hair. The cold temperatures, dry air, and indoor heating can all contribute to this problem. However, there are several steps you can take to combat dry hair and keep your locks looking healthy and hydrated throughout the winter season.

What do I need to do to keep my hair strong and nourished during winter months?

Step 1: Limiting the use of heat styling tools

 Excessive heat from hair dryers, curling irons, and straighteners can further dry out your hair. Try to minimize the use of these tools, or use them on the lowest heat setting possible. If you must use heat styling tools, be sure to apply a heat protectant spray .This one is one of our favorite heat protectants because it is suitable for all hair types. 

Step 2: Avoid over-washing your hair

Washing your hair too frequently can strip it of its natural oils, leading to dryness. Try to wash your hair every other day or every few days to allow your scalp's natural oils to nourish your hair. On non-wash days, use a safe and non toxic dry shampoo to refresh your hair and absorb excess oil.

Step 3: Deep Condition regularly

         Treat your hair to a deep conditioning     treatment once a week to restore moisture   and nourish your strands. For example, if   you have curly or coily hair, it's important to   keep it well-moisturized to prevent dryness   and breakage.Leave the deep conditioner in   your hair for 30-60 minutes. For extra   moisture, consider leaving it in overnight.   Rinse off in the morning. For extra   protection on non deep conditioning days, consider using a moisturizing leave-in conditioner or a curl cream to define your curls and keep them hydrated. If you have straight or fine hair, be cautious with heavy products that can weigh it down. Opt for lightweight serums or lightweight deep conditioners to add moisture without sacrificing volume.

Step 4: You can make your own deep conditioners

 Make your own using natural ingredients like coconut oil or honey. Use this coconut oil on your midshaft to ends of hair. Apply before shampooing. It's stronger, so use on dry hair and shampoo after 30 minutes. You can leave it in longer if you prefer.Honey is effective for split ends and can be applied before shampooing for best results due to its thickness.Avoid using coconut oil or honey for red hair colors as they can accelerate color fading.

Step 5: Protect your hair from the elements

Cold temperatures and harsh winds can wreak havoc on your hair. Before heading outside, protect your hair by wearing a hat or scarf to shield it from the elements.

Step 6: Use a leave-in conditioner or hair oil

After washing your hair, apply a leave-in conditioner  or  hair oil to lock in moisture and add extra hydration. These products can help to smooth frizz, improve manageability, and give your hair a healthy shine. If you have fine hair skip this step. 

Step 7: Avoid using hot water

Hot water can strip your hair of its natural oils and contribute to dryness. Instead, opt for lukewarm or cool water when washing and rinsing your hair. This will help protect your hair color too!!! 

Step 8: Eat a balanced diet

What you put into your body can also affect the health of your hair. Eat a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats to nourish your hair from the inside out.
