Last week there were piles of filthy snow all over the place. This week the skies are bleak and the streets are shiny and wet because of the rain. Chicago’s weather doesn’t quite know what to do with itself, and neither does my hair.
Look at that cold Chicago wind just whipping it back and forth! And that is the “OMG I’m freezing can we please go inside” smile, just so you know!
When the winter weather is dry, cold and crisp, my hair gets poofy and needs more deep conditioning and regular, gentle detangling before the tangles become too impenetrable. When it’s wet and miserable like it is today, my hair goes floppy and limp and won’t hold a consistent curl pattern. It’s quite frustrating, trust and believe!
During wavering winters like this, I go back to the tried, tested and true winter hair care routine – click here to read that classic post. I switch to heavier hair care products – now’s the time to bust out your funnel or take out your mixing bowl to add moisturizing agents to your existing products. I’ve found that my hair responds best to shea butter products, and oil based products at this time of year. If you’re the kind of bella who is open to mass market natural hair products – an Informed but Flexible or Anything Goes natural, if you will – you might find yourself falling for Crème of Nature’s Argan Oil line of products. If you love the fragrance and feel of argan oil from Morocco, you will most likely love this stuff.
My favorite product from the line is the Intensive Conditioning Treatment, it makes for a great cowash with lots of slip for detangling, and leaves my hair visibly and tangibly moisturized after use.
The kind folks at Crème of Nature are offering 10 lucky Afrobella readers a chance to try out their Argan Oil product line!
Your prize pack will include: Moisture and Shine Shampoo, Intensive Conditioning Treatment, Strength and Shine Conditioner, Oil Moisturizer and Oil Treatment.
