Aside from needing extra time to warm my car up in the morning and having to up my moisturizer game, cold weather brings some other problematic things into my life. During the colder months I find myself fighting dry scalp. Yes, your girl’s scalp gets dry in the winter, too. So, I’m usually finding products to help combat the flaking and dandruff that comes along with having a dry scalp.
Recently, I started using L’Oreal EverFresh Anti Dandruff system that includes an exfoliating scrub, shampoo, and conditioner. L’Oreal’s EverFresh line was developed to help those of us who suffer from the dry, flaky scalp. I only have to deal with dry scalp in the winter, because of the harsh cold weather. However, this line might be worth trying if dry scalp is a constant problem for you.
Although I’ve been natural for almost 10 years now, I wear my hair straight most of the time. However, I mentioned last week that I’ve been trying to embrace and wear my natural curls more. This new path of loving of my curls has helped me discover and try different products designed for naturally curly hair. One product that I recently tried was Design Essentials Natural Honey & Shea Edge Tamer to help tame my hairline.
Since I got my ends trimmed and hair dyed to my natural dark brown a couple of months ago, I have been embracing and wearing my natural curls more. This also caused me to look into trying more products for curly hair, which lead me to stumble back into some of the products I used when I first went natural many years. One of the first products I tried that made me love my natural curls was Carol’s Daughter’s Hair Milk. Since I haven’t used it in years, I decided that I would revisit it while I’m all in love with my curls again.
Awhile back, I shared some beauty products that are designed for you to use overnight. In that post, I included a couple of overnight hair treatments, but I not that many. So, let’s discuss overnight hair treatments just a little bit more.
Most overnight hair treatments are used to help moisturize and strengthen your hair while you sleep. As someone with thick, color-treated, naturally curly hair, I put always treat my hair with something that’s moisturizing. One of the simplest treatments you can add to your hair is to add oils to your hair and scalp at night. The types of oils you use depends on your hair type. I usually massage coconut oil on my hair and add a little tea tree oil to my scalp at night, which my hair loves. However, sometimes your hair can appreciate a little more ingredients from a products that created to help treat your hair overnight. That’s when it’s time to look into an overnight hair treatment.
I’m a firm believer in taking the necessary precautions to protect my skin from the sun by religiously applying sunscreen to my face and body before I expose it to the sun to protect it from UV rays. However, some people tend to overlook the fact that it’s just as important to protect hair from sun damage just as much as protecting your skin.
The best way to protect your hair from sun damage is to use products that are designed to do just that; protect your hair from sun damage. Therefore, you should look for and use hair products that contain UVB and UVA protection.
