Protective hairstyles are key to Winter hair treatment
Photo by Dwen Stuart

Two words: Winter Frizz! It’s the time of the year where your hair is thinner than usual, it’s not as bouncy, and it looks a lot frizzier as well. Spending tons of dollars on expensive hair care to control and maintain our suffering tresses can become quite tedious, and let’s be real here… “Don’t nobody got time for dat!” Have you noticed your scalp being itchier? Have you noticed way more shedding than normal? Have you also noticed that your ends appear a bit more frizzed and frayed? Well, dry winter air can be quite damaging to your scalp and ends. As a natural hair mommy, I have researched and tested what types of treatments (outside of a salon) will work to maintain softness, length, and the overall health of my hair. I have also made treatments that will not only condition my hair, but also my daughter’s hair. I use basic products around the house, and in my medicine cabinets to keep my hair healthy and to keep my pockets cute! I still use a lot of my favorite branded products, but I also know that using fresh natural products will also work just as well. Of course I have compiled a list of my go-to moisture treatments, hot oil treatments, and even a scalp treatment for my fellow mommas. Let’s all give these recipes a try and give Winter Frizz the ultimate “BYE FELICIA!”

Shiny Hair Conditioner

1 banana (half if hair is shorter)

½ avocado

1 tbsp organic cold pressed Argan oil

1 tbsp avocado oil

2 tbsp of your favorite MOISTURIZING deep conditioner (optional)

Blend (or hand mix) all ingredients together, and apply to freshly washed towel dried hair. Place plastic cap over hair and sit under heat for 10 MINUTES, and then leave in hair for an 10 extra minutes. Thoroughly rinse hair with cool water, and while hair is still wet, add a few extra drops of Argan oil then style as usual.

Frizz-Free Conditioner

½ avocado

3 tbsp pure organic honey

1 egg

2 tbsp organic cold pressed Jojoba oil

2 tbsp organic cold pressed Argan oil 

Mix ingredients together, and apply to freshly washed, damp hair. Place plastic cap over hair and sit under heat for 15 minutes. Thoroughly rinse hair with cool water, and while hair is still wet, add a few drops of Argan oil and style as usual.

Hot Oil Treatment

2 tbsp organic cold pressed Jojoba oil

2 tbsp organic cold pressed Black Castor Oil

1 tbsp Sweet Almond Oil

2 Biotin capsules (highest dosage)

Lightly heat oil (no more than 20 seconds) and massage into scalp and hair. Place plastic cap on head and leave in hair for 30 minutes prior to washing hair. Oil treatment can also be left in hair overnight.

Healthy Scalp Treatment

½ cup Pure Witch Hazel

4 tbsp Grapseed Oil

3 drops Peppermint Oil

3 drops Teatree Oil

Mix ingredients in an Application bottle. Section freshly washed hair, and apply mixture throughout scalp. Massage into scalp and style as usual.

One important factor in tending to hair during the winter is PROTECTION. Hair should be protected as much as possible. Protective hairstyles are the key to keeping hair from being manipulated and it also helps to secure the conditioning ingredients that are put in hair. Finding the right style is as easy as logging into Instagram, Pinterest or watching a YouTube video. Winter weather not only strips skin of its natural oils but strips our hair of its moisture as well. This is the time of year when you have to drink plenty of water, use less clarifying treatments and perform frequent deep conditionings to help keep your glow all year-round. Don’t let winter strip you of your flyness! This is the time of year that forces you to take more care of yourself, and be a Glowing Goddess. Treat your skin, treat your hair, and most of all…. Treat yourself!
