So today I decided to get away from the Christmas spirit, mainly because I’m a little lazy and I also don’t know what else about Christmas I could write about. I promise I’m not a scrooge or anything, I’m just seriously tired from all the Christmas shopping I’ve done as well as attending these pesky December birthdays. So, I’m going to talk about my winter hair care routine…trust me this won’t be long.
Once winter hits and the dry air takes over, my hair pretty much follows suit. There is no putting the moisture back into my hair…not easily anyways. When you’ve got thick and curly hair, it’s a struggle to keep it bouncy and moisturized. So, I straighten it! I know that sounds pretty counterintuitive but let me explain.
When I decide I want to straighten my hair, I put a ton of moisture in my hair by deep conditioning it.
I either use, Camille Rose Algae Renew, Shea Moisture Manuka Honey Hair Masque or Ojon’s Intensive Hair Treatment. Lately, I’ve been loving Ojon’s Intensive Hair Treatment because it has an amazing smokey smell and makes my hair nice and silky.
The next step is I apply all of my normal products in my hair that you can see on Blogmas Day 5: Favorite Hair Care Products this Year and hopefully there are pictures on there still. Then I either put rollers in my hair or big twists with perm rods on the ends and sit under the dryer for about an hour. After that, I grab grease and olive oil or argan oil and then begin straightening.
Once my hair is straightened, it is so much easier to add oils to my hair to get it nice and moisturized. I prefer to wear it in protective styles, but I also like to wear it down or in hats. After a couple of weeks, I’ll wash it and decide if I want to straighten or wear it curly again.
That’s really all I do. I like to keep my hair routine pretty simple because there really is no reason for it to be complicated. Thanks for reading…only three more days until Christmas!
