Way #4: Get Hydrated
Water is life-giving. You probably already know to drink water during the summer to replace lost fluids, but what about the winter?
Water is a curly girl’s best friend. Cold weather seasons are a good time to double up on your water intake.
Using water is one of the easiest ways to combat lack of hair growth in the winter.
A lot of people don’t feel thirsty during cold weather, but the body needs water during the winter too, especially if you live in a dry climate.
Even just having the heater on all day can make the atmosphere dry.
You need at least 8 cups of water per day, but you should try taking in a little more if you’re on a beauty regimen to improve hair and skin.
If it feels odd to drink a lot of water in the winter, try sipping hot tea all day.
In addition to drinking water, aim to spray a water mist on your hair every morning. Use water as much as possible to prevent breakage and retain length on your curls.
On wash day, use water-based products, like SwirlyCurly's Mango Moringa Moisture Max. These high-moisture products will keep your hair hydrated all week long.
Way #5: Add Heat and Steam
Heat and steam will help to counteract the coldness and promote length retention, but how do you pull it off without damaging your hair?
Choose a low-heat method like the CurlDefiner Natural Hair Dryer to style your hair on wash day.
Then get yourself a small handheld hair steamer to add heat and steam mid-week!
Hair steaming will heat your hair while emitting small water droplets on to the hair, resulting in a fabulous heated hydrotherapy session for your curls.
You can benefit from steam from your shower, or you can purchase a hair steamer. Carefully using the hair steamer on your scalp will open pores and get your blood circulating.
Using the steam on your hair will help you retain length during the winter.
