Winter Routine

PRINCETONPRINCETON Posts: 872Registered Users
Is anybody else doing something different with their hair for the winter months?

My skin and hair usually get dry during winter so I went shopping and got some products that should last until November. Then I will repurchase if this new routine works.

I'm gonna start rubbing coconut oil on my scalp every night and sleeping with a bag on it or baggying only with coconut oil every night. Then in the morning I will rinse out and cowash.

Each weekend I will do a deep protein treatment. I've been doing deep moisturizing conditioners almost 3 times a week for the past 2 years so now I'm reinviting the protein back in on a regular basis.

Also, I bought this comb that I heard raving reviews on from the curly community and I'm hoping it will help with my detangle routine.

Background: this March 2013 will mark my 3 years of growing out my hair starting with a skin bald head. I will then have 7 more years to go in my 10 year grow out routine. I have not had any trims and I do check my hair for split ends each week.

My hair is now long down past the middle part of my back. I think it will be down past my tailbone by spring 2013.

    I'm still trying to figure out my winter routine. I just recently figured out my hair doesn't like certain proteins so I was thinking of bagging with olive oil. Last year I wore my hair straight during the winter but I'm cutting out as much heat as possible, so I need another style besides a wash n go.

    I'm probably going to get mines straightened so I can detangle easier. Also, I decided to never do anything to my hair in the shower. I think the high temperature of the water is damaging. If I don't get a hold of detangling then I might as well cut all my hair off again.

    In the winter the biggest change I do is sitting under the hair dryer or blow drying so I don't walk around with a wet head.

    I think I'm addicted to wet hair. I was thinking of just spraying my hair during winter so that I only use the right amount needed to style and moisturize. That might help keep away from being soaking wet.

    I bought more winter supplies.

    To start my nightly scalp massage I bought Tisserand essential oils
    - Jojoba Oil
    - Rosemary Oil
    - Patchouli Oil
    - Grapefruit Oil


    I got this dryer and diffuser. I wanted a large diffuser and I hope this will work. I usually wear a long curly ponytail and it takes a long time to dry.

    This dryer has a constant cold option as well as a cold blast button.


    Does anybody have any tips or oil suggestions for the nightly scalp massages that I'm starting?
