How to Protect Afro Hair During the Winter Months
The winter months can be especially hard on our hair, but if you have afro hair, it can feel like an even bigger challenge. The cold weather and harsh winds can leave your natural hair dry and brittle, making it prone to breakage and damage. But don’t worry—there are a few simple steps you can take to protect afro hair during the winter months in order to promote growth and keep your curls looking healthy. Let’s take a look at a few of them!
Moisturise It Up
Keeping your strands moisturised is key when it comes to protecting afro hair in the winter. You should aim to deep condition your hair twice a week using a moisturising conditioner, as well as applying a leave-in conditioner when you’re done styling or washing your hair. This will help lock in moisture and protect your strands from the harsh elements of winter.
We highly recommend Mane Bliss Sealing Hair Oil to lock in moisture.
Cover It Up
When you head outside during the colder months, make sure that you cover up your tresses with a hat or scarf. This will help protect them from the wind and cold temperatures, as well as adding an extra layer of protection against any snow or rain that may come down during this time of year. If possible, opt for natural materials such as cotton or wool for added warmth and comfort

Trim It Down
Regular trims are essential when it comes to keeping afro hair looking its best during the winter months. Trimming off split ends will help keep your locks strong and healthy while preventing further damage from occurring. Aim to get a trim once every 3-4 months in order to keep your strands looking their best all season long!
