Miss Jessie's co-founder Miko Branch shares some great tips!
Winter is here! And that means changing up your wardrobe to protect you from the blustering winds and cold weather. It also means changing up your hair care routine to keep your curls healthy, well moisturized, and frizz free. Here are a few quick and easy tips to help keep your hair healthy and you happy.
Keep it Covered:
If you do not sleep with a hair bonnet at any other time of the year, please use one now!
Keeping your hair healthy during the winter’s months requires you to keep your hair covered and protected as much as possible – especially at night. During the day, the most essential rule is to keep your hair covered when exposed to the bitter cold and NEVER go out with your hair wet.
When hair goes from a warm house to the frosty air, it accumulates frost and can lead to dry brittle hair, which could lead to something far worse – hair breakage. When combating frigid temperatures, wear hats with a silk lining, rather than unlined wool or cotton hats – friction can lead to frizziness, dryness, and hair breakage. If you don’t want to wear a hat, go for some protective styles like braids, buns, ponytails, twists – or even wigs or weaves.
Winter is the perfect time to pamper your curls with moisturizers that add shine and luster as well as deep conditioning treatments that heal and repair winter-worn hair.
We recommend Miss Jessie’s iconic Curly Pudding, Baby Buttercreme, or for something a little less rich, Baby Buttermilk.
These moisturizers will replenish your natural oils and add shine to your hair, while at the same time help fight frizz, dryness, and reduce the risk of hair breakage. In addition, now more than ever, your curls need reparative deep conditioning treatment. So, set aside about twenty minutes, pour yourself a glass of wine, get ready to relax, and try Miss Jessie’s Super Sweetback Treatment or Miss Jessie’s Rapid Recovery Treatment. By the time you have finished your first glass of wine, you are ready wash out these decadent deep conditioners and run your fingers through your softest, bounciest curls ever.
Super foods for Super Hair:
There is no way around it – your hair cannot be healthy unless you are healthy.
What you eat has an impact on the health of your hair, because your hair needs nutrients for it to be healthy and strong. Make sure to drink eight (8) cups of water per day and stock up on kale, chia seeds, eggs, salmon, almonds, quinoa, broccoli and kidney beans. Super foods will give your hair a boost during the winter months.
Following these quick and easy tips will keep your hair well protected and gorgeous all winter long, and will make sure that your hair is healthy enough for “wash-n-go” styling in the spring.
