5 Ways to Maintain Your Curls in the Fall

11.jpg

Hello guys, I'm Taylor Brown, a curly hair aficionado. I'm on Instagram @curlplease_, feel free to follow me if you like this article.

Cozy sweaters, Thanksgiving, and cold weather are sure signs that Fall season is in full effect.
While the cooler temperatures are a nice break from the hot Summer days, they’re not exactly
curly hair friendly. Cold weather lacks humidity, creating dry air which has a direct effect on the
moisture of our curls. If you’ve found that your hair has been a little dull, dry, and even frizzy
maybe then here are some tips to help you maintain those curls this Fall.


1.) Cold water works better.
When you’re going through your weekly wash day routine, it’s normal to wash your hair with
warm water. After all, no one likes the feel of cold water unless they’re swimming. Rinsing your
hair with cold water is the better option during the Fall because it helps with sealing the cuticle
which will keep the moisture in your hair.


2.)Have you heard of the L.O.C. method?
One of the most recommended techniques in curl care is the L.O.C. (liquid oil cream)  method.
Moisture retention is key in maintaining those curls. so you’ll find this method vital to your curl
success. Start with a liquid (water or a leave in) this will hydrate the hair. Next, you want to apply
an oil of your choice which will help seal in the liquid. Lastly, you want to use a cream (hair
butter, styling milk, etc.) that will secure the oil, locking all of the moisture in place.


3.) Protective Styles are the way to go
Sometimes you have to give your hair a break. Putting those curls away for a few weeks will
protect those ends and help reduce any damage that can be caused by constant manipulation
and cold weather. Just remember you still have to take care of the hair underneath. Don’t leave
the style up for more than a month and a half and give your hair a break in between styles. Kömb offers on-demand hairstyling in the comfort of your home, just in case you hate being out in the cold like me. They are currently running a $25 off your first appointment promotion, free to look around www.komb.co.


4.) Trim, trim, trim!
A lot of curly girls shy away from scissors, but health over length. Our ends are just as important
as our roots and are often neglected. Our ends are constantly brushing up against our clothes
which can be drying and may cause breakage. Don’t be afraid to give your hair a dusting and
trim those ends. You’ll notice an overall healthier look to your curls.


5.)Don’t forget the oils
You want to moisturize and seal the ends of those curls on a daily basis. Rub oil on your ends
every morning during your rise & fluff. The oil will keep your hair moisturized and stop those
ends from splitting and breaking off.


Never let anyone dull your curls, not even in the cold weather, so use these tips to help keep
those curls moisturized this fall.

#Summertimefine: Work It Out

Summer is slowly approaching so it is only right that we are working on getting it tight. With people becoming more health conscious, more people are stepping up their work out game. Of course, with beauty comes hair probz, so lets get it together.

Here are 3 tips to help you toward your #summertimefine goals!

Some consistent trips to the gym can have your hair going left-field in a matter of a couple reps. Nothing is more annoying than having to deal with the sweat, and lets be honest, sometimes this can deter whether or not you want to actually head over to the gym. Do not let the idea sweat get you down! Be consistent with your work out plan AND consistent with protecting your hair from sweat. This will help you overcome all that comes with having sweaty hair. For those that have longer hair, putting it up in a ponytail or a bun will certainly protect hair from undergoing too much sweat. Top it off by making sure you are tying a scarf or placing a headband around your edges, this will keep them from frizzing and collecting sweat.

Working out does not mean you have deal with dry and brittle hair. Listen to your hair and ensure that you are following your regimen for washing and moisturizing your hair. Moisture is EVERYTHING! It’s recommended to use your favorite leave-in conditioner that will absorb into the hair follicles. This will help with the overall health of your hair and retaining the length.

The last tip would be to make sure that you put your health first! Your hairstyles are never so serious that you should have to sacrifice your hair health. Making sure that your health is a priority and your hair is secondary is the most important thing to remember. Your hair will always be able to clapback, but your body should not be treated in any negative way.

Are there any other tips and trick that you can share as your get closer to your #summertimefine?
