WINTERIZE YOUR WASHES.


Now that we are practically living in winter, how does one minimize the dryness that comes with washing our hair?
here are some few tips that can help.
 


wash less often- rather than washing your hair weekly, try biweekly.

Add oils to your shampoo- it is said that the drying effects of shampoo can be minimized by adding little oil.
recommended oil: olive, grapeseed,jojoba,safflower or castor oil.


pre-poo with oil- before washing your hair, pre-poo with a concoction of oils. allow the mix to sit on your hair for at-least 30 minutes

Focus on the roots and scalp than the hair strand- when cleansing the hair, apply shampoo to roots only and massage your roots and scalp then rinse, allow the water (mixed with shampoo) to run through your strands.

Always follow up with a good conditioner- a ''good'' conditioner is one that helps to retain the moisture in your hair and also strengthen the hair.

speaking of winter- dry hair completely before going outside. freezing cold weather + wet hair =Disaster. let your hair dry completely before going outside.

  4. I am not a fan of adding oil to my shampoo. I think pre-pooing with extra virgin olive oil before washing with shampoo is enough. What I love to do is mixing my shampoo with my conditioner to minimize the drying affect. Great post, darling.

  9. Excellent tips.....I definitely need to apply shampoo only to my roots. I think 'wash hair' instead of 'cleanse scalp'. SMH
