Winter Hair Care Brrr! Cold weather is something most people don’t look forward to. It can be tough dredging through rain, sleet and snow to finish a to-do list that warmer climates allow you to breeze through. While, there are some challenges during winter, with Sisterlocks we can handle them with ease.
WINTERIZE IT! The chill of winter brings a colder, dryer air quality. We avoid the hawk like the plague by staying inside. Our physical activity changes and we “winterize” our workouts by participating in “work-ins” – indoor activity like treadmills and exercise bikes to bring up the heart rate. However, heated indoor spaces and freezing outdoor temperatures can really dry out the hair shafts. Don’t use winter as an excuse to shampoo less often! Also, proper hydration of the body is important year round.
Challenge: Drying Conditions Our hair, skin and scalp are affected by the elements. The skin and scalp are usually dryer. For instance, you may have noticed that you don’t change the frequency of washing your face in winter, yet your face seems dryer in the colder months.
Goal: Maintain Moisture Sisterlocks takes a “less is more” approach to product usage. Because there’s less humidity/moisture in the air in winter it tricks some of us into thinking we need to pile on the products. Wrong! You can actually use less product in cooler weather.
TIPS Here are a few tips for using Sisterlocks products to keep your locks healthy and looking and feeling great:
Use the Sisterlocks Starter Shampoo whenever it’s time for a re-tightening. This is a clarifying shampoo and great for locks at every stage.
Shampoo with Salon or Green Tea concentrated formulas. Their effective humectants draw moisture into the hair.
Periodic deep conditioning treatments with our Moisture Treatment or Reconstructor help guard against dryness. Both can be used as a leave-in or deep conditioning treatment.
Apply a light mist of Herbal Spray Moisturizerwhenever you want to add life and sheen to your locks between shampoos.
The Styling Sprayoffers a great hold for styles especially in damp weather.
Use Fresh Hair to freshen the scent of the hair and soothe a dry scalp after a workout and between shampoos.
