While summer is the unofficial wash-and-go season, that doesn’t mean you can’t wear your popping curls in the winter. Protective styles are not the only option for your hair during the colder months! If you don’t want to let go of wash-and-go styles just yet, here are a few hair care tips to keep your style alive and well in the cold.

Use a Leave-In Conditioner and Curl Definer

Applying a leave-in conditioner is the foundation to styling, especially during the months where the weather is more extreme. Leave-in conditioners are lighter than their rinse-out conditioners, so they are absorbed into the hair strands. This helps add an extra layer of moisture without weighing the hair down.

Our Pomegranate & Honey Leave-In Conditioner is the perfect choice for your winter hairstyles. It penetrates each hair strand, adding moisture and sealing it in. Not only does this product add shine, but it also prevents frizz without weighing down the hair and helps with the detangling process.

Pairing our organic leave-in conditioner with our Pomegranate & Honey Curling Custard makes a dream team for a popping wash-and-go style! This product combo is the perfect solution for dry, thirsty curls and for those looking for great curl definition and long-lasting shine. The pomegranate soothes frizzy hair while helping detangle and moisturize the hair, and the honey acts as a humectant, adding moisture to the hair to serve as a great conditioner.

Let Your Hair Dry

In the colder months, you should ensure that your hair is completely dry before leaving the house. Listen — it’s cold outside, so going out in the cold with wet hair is not the best option. If you have somewhere to be, then give yourself at least 30 minutes or so to let your hair dry, depending on the length and density of your hair. You can also use a hooded dryer if you have time, because it is less work and dries the hair more evenly. If you don’t have a hooded dryer, then you can also use a hand-held blow dryer. Even better, you can use your hand-held dryer with a diffuser attachment to reduce frizz.

Deep Condition Regularly

To improve curl elasticity, make sure you deep condition regularly. Elasticity is what helps your strands to form those perfect curls and coils, and it reduces breakage. Deep conditioning helps maintain the moisture/protein balance that gives your curls elasticity, and you should make it a part of your weekly hair care routine if you don’t already do so.

Our Babassu Oil Mint Deep Conditioner infuses hair with protein and moisture to restore dry and damaged hair. Babassu oil is high in sterols and tocopherols to improve hair and scalp health. Our product is enriched with fatty acids and natural oils that help reduce frizz and fly-aways. This deep penetrating conditioner is made with complex amino acids from wheat, soy, and other natural ingredients that help restore moisture to damaged and dry hair.

Rock Your Style!

You don’t want to put any extra stress on your hair by restyling constantly, which means you should rock your wash-and-go as long as you can. Keep your hair stretched to keep your curls from shrinking overnight, and wear a satin scarf or bonnet or use a satin pillowcase to preserve your curls at night.
