A warm hello to all the beauties!!!!
It is that time of the year again when we party and celebrate the coming of a new year!!!!
With the party season clashing with the spine chilling winters, skin and hair care goes for a toss. Especially for the hair, the agony increases, when you have wavy or curly hair which all difficult to maintain specially in winters. A big question arises. How to manage curly hair?
So here is how you can maintain your gorgeous tresses and enjoy the party. Just keep in mind these simple tips, and you are ready to rock!!! J J
1. Avoid Using Heat on Your Hair:
Keep the use of hair straighteners and blow dryer to the minimal. Over use of these will make your hair a lot more fizzy and unruly, especially in winters when the wind is dry. It further will add to the dry hair woes.
Just love your curls during winters. After all curls and waves are never out of fashion…
2. Always Use a Conditioner:
Curly and wavy hair is very porous and hence, conditioning in these hair types after every wash will help you lock moisture.
Use a daily conditioner for wavy hair, leave it for about 2 minutes and wash it off.
For tight curls, condition for about 5 minutes and rinse it off. If you require, you can also use a leave-in-conditioner, to lock the moisture in your curls. Deep condition your hair 2 times a week.
3. Include Hot Oils in Your Routine:
As you already know, oils always work wonders on everyone’s hair. During winters do not forget to include oils in your deep conditioning treatment. Try to use warm oil such as olive oil or almond oil and slightly warmed coconut oil.
Use the hot oil treatment before washing your hair. Allowing oil to sit on hair prior to shampooing can help soften the hair and making de-tangling easier to accomplish.
This also adds coating to the hair so using the shampoo won’t be as stripping to your hair.
The best oil for curly ad wavy hair is jojoba oil, sweet almond oil and olive oil, as they are light and help control fizz.
4. Cover Up Your Hair:
It has been always said that prevention is better than cure. When venturing outdoors, the dry and cold air can make your hair fizzy.
Ensure that you cover your hair with a crocheted hat or a scarf. Hats are said to make a great fashion statement.
5. Get a Good Night Sleep:
All curls can benefit from sleeping on a satin pillowcase as your waves and curls won’t dry so quickly, as they would with a cotton case. You can also wrap your curls and waves in a silk or satin scarf as it will help to reduce fizz.
6. Keep Your Body Hydrated:
During winters it is very natural that our water intake reduces drastically. But the body is said to benefit with some extra water intake during winters. All curl types are also said to benefit from water.
7. Cut Down The Intake of Alcohol and Caffeine:
Drinking hot coffee and alcohol can heavily affect your body, skin as well as hair.
They alter the functioning of the liver and force the endocrine system to produce toxins. These toxins accumulate in your body and make the skin and hair appear duller. It also leads to pre-mature ageing.
To beat the cold, you can drink tea (green tea) or lemon in hot water.
These 7 mantras will help you keep your wavy or curly locks in control with ease. Always remember that curls and waves are always in fashion. So love your tresses.
Rock the party season and stay gorgeous.
Keep it stylish always!!!
