It is fuh-reezing up in here!!! dammit, I want to be in Ghana right now! I don’t have much time for myself these days because of baby Noah, but I have to take care of the hair so that this wretched weather doesn’t give me any setbacks in the form of breakage. So here’s my winter regimen:
Wash or Co-wash
Apply ‘modified’ Kinky Curly Knot Today leave-in: I mix some KCKT with aloe vera gel and some type of oil and apply that to my hair. Mucho moisture after that, and I love the way my twists turn out with that method.
Apply whipped sheabutter to seal in the moisture- Since butters are thicker than oils, they work better to seal during the winter. Another good alternative is a thick oil like Castor oil, but it just feels too sticky for me which is why I prefer the butters.
Wear a turban or winter hat about 90% of the time when going out. Sometimes, I leave bangs out, just to get ‘another look.’ I usually wear a satin bonnet underneath so that the wool doesn’t dry out my hair. You can do that, or make your own satin lined winter hat, check out youtube for tutorials, or just buy it from Etsy, – known as Dawanda in Germany.
This was my ‘hat look’ last night as we went to check out the christmas market:
The girls were so excited- christmas is around the corner
Fun times at the christmas market, I’m getting into the whole christmas mood now; I can’t wait to go pick out a tree with the girls and decorate, bake cookies etc etc.
Ok, back to hair
