Harmattan and Dry Ends

For many of us around the world, the cold / dry season is approaching. In Nigeria, we call it harmattan. It can get really dry, dusty and cold. During this period lots of things can get drier: your lips, your feet, your hands, your throat, your clothes hung outside and your natural hair too. So what can be done to limit / prevent the season from taking a negative toll on your hair?

I read a simple, straightforward blog post on Curly Nikki on how to cope with dry ends. The great thing about the post is that these are healthy hair practices that really should be done as part of your regular hair routine. The post discusses 5 steps including: deep conditioning, moisturizing and sealing, trimming etc.

I would like to emphasize moisturizing and sealing. If you have not already done so, consider using a conditioner (rinse out or leave-in) as part of your regular hair routine and then putting your sealant over it. This helps retain more moisture in your hair for a bit longer. Your sealant can be any of the butters you prefer (Shea, cocoa, mango) or natural oils (olive, jojoba) or a mixture of both.

Keep it natural!
