Faux locs as a protective style and 2 products to avoid during cold season

Welcome back to my blog.

Yes 2020 is finally here and let’s get the awesome hair tips rolling in.

The season is cold and definitely not the best time to leave your hair unprotected. I was making genesis hair today and i noticed her scalp was so dry, flaky and her hair was shedding. I left her hair out for a day or two and i realized it was the worse decision.

Harmattan might not be as intense as winter but the effect on our skin, hair and body generally is harsh. Dust and foreign bodies are not good for the hair.

One of the best protective style for your hair this cold season is Faux locs.

It doesn’t matter if your hair is relaxed or natural, protective style is very important during cold weather.

Here are few faux locs style ideas.

2 Product to avoid during cold weather

  1. Gel
  2. Edge control

I’m not saying you shouldn’t use it but try and avoid it this season. Gel makes the hair dry which can leads to hair thinning and brittleness.

I used hair to style my TWA (teeny weeny afro), my edges were looking like an onion flavored pringles chips, while my hair was so dry and hard that you could literally win a kunfu brick breaking contest if you used it. I tried eco styler and it wasn’t that bad but my hair was still dry and dust had me looking like a Christmas tree with snow flakes on it.

Turban, head wraps, beanie, head warmer, cap, scarf and protective styles should be in your hair care routine this season.
