It’s November and that means cooler weather for most of us. While Summer is still trying to peek her head in with the occasional 80 degree day here and there, for the most part we are cruising in the 60’s in Virginia where I live. Depending on where you are on the map, it may be cooler. And cold weather will be here sooner than I’d like. While most naturalistas are mapping out their protective styles for the next few months, you might be like me and still plan to rock a wash and go every now and then. It is still possible to wear your curls this season without your hair suffering. Here are a few tips to keep your wash and go style crisp, and not crispy.

Establishing a routine is something that takes time, trial and error and patience. It’s probably one of the most personalized portion of your entire journey- finding exactly what works for your hair and what doesn’t.

But what many women don’t realize is that what works for your hair during one season may not work for the next. Changing your wash regimen for each season is important to ensure that your hair maintains its health and retains as much moisture as possible.

5 Tips for Keeping Your Natural Hair Moisturized This Fall

Keeping natural hair moisturized this Fall and Winter will be a challenge. While many will opt for protective styling, there are other ways to keep hair protected and moisturized as temperatures dip and dryness soars.

Finding a moisturization regimen is important when dealing with natural hair. Since our hair is curly/kinky, our sebum cannot make its way down the hair shaft. This means the moisture needs to be replenished as many times as possible through deep conditioning and moisturizing products. Maintaining a proper level of moisture reduces the chance of breakage, leaves you with softer hair and increased length retention.

Your moisturizing regimen will typically depend on your hair’s porosity and the style that your hair is currently in, but here are some general tips on how to properly moisturize your hair.

Autumn Care for Your Natural Hair!

by Toia B of Luvtobnatural

FALL IS HERE Y’ALL!

Temps are dropping and humidity wanes with each day. Due to these and other factors, many of us find it necessary to switch up our regimen a bit so our hair plays nice with whatever the weather may bring.

Here are just a few things you can try this Fall to make the best of the crisp, cool air that comes with the season:

Use Heavier Oils/Butters

When I first began wearing my hair in its natural state, I thought using the same oils and things all-year-round would be fine. However, the lighter oils that I used in the summer (grapeseed, sweet almond, jojoba) to seal in moisture didn’t quite cut it in the cooler months. For me, they weren’t a strong enough “defense” against the low humidity air and my hair was feeling drier and drier. What to do?!

Protect Your Natural Hair This Hat Season!


by Toia B of LuvtoBNatural

Brrr… It’s time to bundle up!

One of the most important accessories you’ll need this season is a nice, cozy hat. Wool is often the go-to option for obvious reasons. Even so, this ├╝ber warm fabric can cause unwanted damage to your hair…

While they serve an important purpose, wool winter hats can cause breakage from friction. Ever have a wool turtleneck or scarf that you wore pretty often and notice later on that the hair at the nape of your head is thinning out? Mmhhmm… friction! Also, much like cotton, wool absorbs moisture from your hair… this, as we know, can eventually lead to breakage. So look for hats with satin or silk linings.
