Does your hair shed or break more in the winter? You may be the victim of seasonal breakage or shedding. Thankfully it’s easy to stop or repair seasonal breakage with these 5 tips.
This winter has been brutal; showing our hair no mercy. Even with protective styling and moisturizing regularly, it’s been difficult to fully protect your hair. It’s very possible you’ve fallen victim to seasonal breakage due to the harsh winter season.
Luckily, milder temperature will offer relief but there are some steps you can take to revitalizing and repairing any damage or breakage caused by the winter.
Get A Trim
I know clipping your ends seems a little counterintuitive when it comes to growing healthy hair. But believe me its necessary. Winter is one of the leading causes of seasonal breakage and split ends which can only be remedied by a good trim.

Try An Oil Infusion
Olive Oil Infusion Kit is a two-step deep conditioning treatment that almost miraculously hydrates the driest of curls. It’s available at Carol’s Daughter.com for $20. But you can easily make your own, there’s a great step-by-step in my 10-Step Guide To Winter Natural Hair Care.
Use a Clarifying Shampoo
In the winter, it’s very beneficial to use your heavy oils or butters to seal in moisture and protect your hair.
These oils tend to be a little harder to rinse and wash off. A creamy clarifying shampoo like Ouidad Superfruit Renewal Clarifying Shampoo gently cleans hair without over drying. More about Using a Clarifying Shampoo.
Invest In A Hair Steamer
Regularly steaming your hair not only adds moisture without completely saturating your hair, it will refresh parched tresses likes no body’s business. Around here we call the Q-Redew Handheld Steamer a life changer.

Do a Protein Treatment
Protein treatments repair hair by replenishing its building block or the protein structure; leaving you with stronger and healthier hair. Protein treatment can be done as need or quarterly to maintain the strength of your hair.
I use African’s Best Hair Mayonnaise which is a light protein treatment bi-weekly and for more intense protein treatments, ApHogee 2-Step Protein Treatment and Balanced Moisturizer is one of the best.
