Winter Hair Tips (again)

Hi loves! I just wanted to mention something that was brought up to me in my last hair care blog about winter hair tips. My blogs about hair are mainly (though never limited to) women with curly hair, when it is in it’s naturally curled state. For those of you who know me, you know that more often than not my hair is actually straightened (I go to a professional and get my hair done on a regular basis). Because of my hair type, I shouldn’t wash my hair more than one every week and a half or so (I have a mix of type 3c, 4a, and 4b hair when it’s curled),  so it’s easier to just get it done every two weeks (plus I don’t press my own hair, so if I wash it I leave it curly). I’m mentioning all of this to say that when my hair is straight I DO NOT oil my hair everyday. I may oil it once a week or so, and then wrap and protective style. Thank you Lauryn, for pointing that out, I greatly appreciate that. And for oil I go to my local Lee’s Beauty Supply Store (though Sally’s or Ulta will do) and get Hollywood Beauty Coconut Oil, Castor Oil and Olive Oil. I like the coconut oil the best because it’s supposed to help your ends stay moisturized. Sometimes I’ll mix the two and use little to none (again when my hair is straight) I only add one drop, if that. My straight hair absorbs oils easily. If I oiled my hair every day my hair would look stringy (and horrid). As far as oiling every day I only might do that when my hair is curly (mostly because I wear it curly in the summer when I do wash-and-gos or co-wash my hair). I still suggest you all drink a bunch of water and take some hair vitamins. The vitamins really help. I go to Trader Joe’s, a take one of their women’s hair and nails vitamins. I have my hair goal (which I’m so excited to share since I never post pictures of my hair), which is below. I’m currently trying to grow out my hair, it was in layers and some of those layers where shorter than others. It was cut the end of January to above my shoulders when it was straight. After tons of work on getting my hair healthy and happy, I’m just growing it out now.  I hope you all have your hair goals planned out and ready to go! Feel free to comment any hair topics you want me to address, I’d love to hear from you all! Stay fabulous!
