Natural Hair, Winter Care. 7 Products I Recommend

This week, temperatures in Chicago were reading in the negatives and single digits. As a woman born and raised in the Caribbean I hope you know that I am not about that cold weather life. Neither is my skin (see yesterday’s post) and neither is my hair. Thanks to the extreme chilliness of outside and the drying effects of indoor heat, I’ve had to step up my hair care regimen. Now it’s not so much a wash and go as a WDTM&G as Curly Nikki would call it. I find myself having to deep condition more often, detangle more often, and use more product to retain my hair’s moisture. Otherwise it is tumbleweed city up in here.

I recently was featured on, where I shared my must have hair care products.



Click here to read that! Those are all products that are helping me get through this season. I wanted to highlight them and a few others I keep going back to here as well.

Here are 7 products I recommend for surviving winter with healthy natural hair!

Karen’s Body Beautiful Secret Weapon Restorative Hair Treatment – seriously, in these climactic conditions my hair NEEDS a product like this. Weekly hair treatments are essential for kinky curly coily hair at this time of year, whether you concoct a hot oil treatment (a la Naptural85 via BGLH) or use a product like KBB’s Secret Weapon.

Oyin Handmade Honey Hemp Conditioner like I said over at Hello Beautiful, I love the whole Oyin brand and aesthetic. I stan for Oyin. And this conditioner is my go-to for a wash and go style this winter. My hair drinks that healthy moisture up!

EDEN BodyWorks Jojoba Monoi Deep Conditioner – for an easy detangling process for my weekly (or every 4 days) deep conditioning, this is my go-to. It smells amazing and works great with ye old school heat cap.

Pooka Pure and Natural Shea and Olive Hair Butter – please don’t sleep on Pooka! This brand makes incredible body products and just a few hair products, but the three that they make are amazing. This Shea and Olive Hair Butter is like a thick styling pomade that melts into my hair and gives it internal moisture and shine. I love it in heavy winter months.

Coco Curls Moisturizing Styling Cream smells awesome and is the right weight for my hair in this weather, not too heavy, but not too light. When I experiment with twists, I reach for this.

Koils By Nature Shealoe – My hair responds well to shea, but it responds even better to shea with another additive. Shealoe is pretty much my hair’s favorite combination – moisture + curl definition FTW!

Sunny Isle Jamaican Organic Black Castor Oil I’ve come to realize that my hair NEEDS oil. It needs oil all the time, but especially when it’s cold, dry and windy. JBCO has a reputation for a reason. They make many amazing oil blends and oil based products, but that extra dark has my heart.

Those are some of the products I’m loving at this time of year – I have a steady rotation of products I review but these are mainstays I keep coming back to.

What’s your winter hair care routine? Any product recs?

This Ayurvedic Herbal Hair Oil is amazing trust me. I found it around 3 months back on Amazon. In such a short spell of time with three overnight applications/week, regularly, despite the atrocious cold weather, my hair fall was significantly low, the hair volume continues to grow.
