Let's Get Hydrated
The temperature has take a huge dip and that combined with high winds will make anybody's hair dry. Your skin too. But for today we will focus on our hair. These quick tips will help you get a better level of hydration and moisture to keep your curls shiny and poppin' all winter long!
Here is the quick and dirty...
The Quick Tips
Skip the Lather during the coldest weeks. Cleanse your hair twice with the No.7 Non-Lather. This will deeply cleanse your hair and scalp with the Peppermint and Menthol that I put in the product. In addition, this product contains a cleansing agent that will help keep you from having build-up on your hair and scalp. What you will notice??? That your scalp feels like it's been gently exfoliated and your hair feels amazingly soft before you have conditioned it.
Use your Treatment Masks and Babassu Conditioner. By combining both of these products your getting a double dose of softness and beautiful hair. The Babassu Collection helps to reduce swelling of the hair shaft which gives you a more polished look to your hair. It also imparts more shine to your hair. The Classic Urbanbella Conditioners - The Organic Coconut Cream Repair Mask or The Urbanbella No.4 Conditioner will help to increase the moisture level of your hair. These treatments are Coconut Oil based and will give your hair the softness that it needs because Coconut Oil can penetrate the hair shaft and deliver long-lasting moisture. Seriously. It can do it like no other oil can. And the benefits are long lasting. To get the most from your treatments steam condition your hair or deep condition with a heat cap.
Increase the Amount of Softer Urbanbella Styling Gels that you use like Neat Extra Soft and Tamu Curls. Just increase them a little bit to start to give you additional moisture. The air is dry and these softer gels can stand up to the harsh cold days of Winter. I put a little something in them to help with that. If you have my 2021 Winter Curls Gels series then definitely use that as they contain more hydrating ingredients like Panthenol and Silk Amino Acids. If you don't have it then stay tuned for the 2022 Vault Opening to purchase a set.
Moisturize your hair at night and wear your silk bonnet. Use your Urbanbella Hydrating Creams for this step. They will give your hair the water you need but will also help you get some curl definition back. By hydrating and moisturizing your curls with the Urbanbella Moisturizers you have that perfect balance to combat frizz and dryness. The Babassu Hydrating Moisture Cream will really give your more curl definition while the No.23 Hydrating Moisturizing Cream will increase your moisture level significantly. Feel free to use them both!!!
These tips have been helping me over these very cold winter days and my hair has been shinier and softer than usual. That is usually a little harder to achieve this time of year. And if you know me I refused for YEARS to wear a bonnet. Well, I have given in. I wear a bonnet to bed. (see me waving my white flag?)
Try out these steps and let me know how it goes for you!
