The Fro Butter Guide To Caring For Natural Hair In The Winter

As adults, we've learned that slightly changing small habits can make a huge difference, especially in our beauty routines. We diligently transition our body- and skin-care rituals when cold weather rolls around. You might forget about your hair in the 'Winter Transition,' but you shouldn't — especially if it's naturally curly.
It's essential to give your natural hair some extra love in colder months. For curly hair, extra winter love starts with a few simple swaps and it also includes keeping up with haircuts and treatments. 

Double up on deep conditioner.

Rebuilding. That's the word to keep in mind as you shape your winter hair care routine. Your cuticle gets damaged from chemicals, and wear and tear from daily styling, this creates pockets and holes in the cuticle that can eventually result in shedding and breakage. To stop breakage in its tracks, add a nourishing deep conditioning mask to your routine can drastically strengthen your curls. Fro Butter can be used to not only lock in moisture but retain length by preventing split ends. 

How To Use Fro Butter As A Deep Conditioner

  1. Wash your hair with a clarifying shampoo. Rinse well.
  2. Apply a small amount of hair oil.
  3. Apply a dollop of the Fro Butter to the damp strands and scalp. Massage well. Cover with plastic shower cap
  4. Leave it on for an hour and then style as usual.
  5. If you have damaged hair, leave the mask on overnight and style the next day.

Make sure your hair is dry after styling.

The best time to apply styling products is when the hair is drenched. That remains true even in cooler weather. However, while we do encourage air drying in the summer, we advise against going outside with wet hair when it's cold. Its time to invest in a diffusser to dry your curls without disturbing them. Moisture can escape from the hair as the air becomes dryer, so invest in a microfiber towel to protect and define curls. Be sure to remove as much excess water as possible to ensure maximum volume and to reduce frizz. Use a microfiber towel or microfiber towel wrap to create less friction while removing extra water out of your hair.

Look for curl-friendly hats and pillowcases

Materials don't only matter when it comes to the type of towels you use on your curls. They're even more critical when you're looking to protect them from the elements. We recommend trading your cotton pillowcase for a satin or silk option to avoid drying out and snagging on your natural hair, especially during the winter months. Satin is your secret weapon to protect your hair from bedhead and breakage. Fabrics like cotton and wool suck the moisture right out of the hair strand, causing dryness and damage.  Winter hats are a huge friction culprit since most of them are made of thick wool and cotton materials. Instead of your standard hat, opt for something satin or silk-lined, which will protect you from the cold without giving you a bad hair day.
We hope this helps and we can't wait to hear your winter tips in the comment section.
