3 Vital Tips To Retain Maximum Moisture This Winter

Winter is finally here which means changing our wash routines, protective styling and moisture, moisture and more moisture!

While during the summer months our hair routines are more care free, winter is all about keeping our tresses replenished and fully moisturised. As the winter air can be drying, here at Flora & Curl we want your hair looking its absolute best. So we’re sharing with you our tips for retaining maximum moisture this winter.

Tip 1: Wash Day = Deep Conditioning

Creating a simple wash day routine is the best for this kind of weather, and deep conditioning is KEY! A good wash day sets our hair for the many styles ahead. Deep conditioning helps revive, repair and adds moisture back into our hair giving it a fresh start. Try mixing your favourite deep conditioner with a good oil and some indirect heat to really help penetrate your strands and set your hair for the next process.

Tip 2: Protective Styling

Whether it’s wigs, weaves or braids, protective styling is one way to keep the moisture sealed in, and the nasty cold air away. This is a great way to retain moisture, keep our hands out of our hair and retain a lot of length. It also keeps the hair soft as you are able to moisturise and go without any fuss while protecting your natural hair underneath. Try moisturising and sealing your natural hair whilst in your protective style. Also wearing your favourite hat lined with silk or satin will help protect your strands from rubbing, causing friction, loss of moisture, breakage and split ends.

Tip 3: LOC/LCO

All natural sisters should know what this important step is, and if you don’t then where have you been hiding. Whether it be daily or every few days, the LOC (Leave-In Oil Cream) or LCO (Leave-In Cream Oil) method is what really gives our hair what it needs to stay moisturised, hydrated and soft. As textured hair tends to be drier, we really need to find steps to protect our tresses from the harsh winter weather. Try using some of your staple products both ways to see which way works best for your curls.

The key is to build a regime that is simple and what works for YOU.

Naturally yours,

Team Flora & Curl
