4 Winter Hair Mistakes to Avoid


With an upcoming forecast of snow on-top of snow, it’s hard to break away from the bitter chill that winter brings. While staying warm and shoveling take top priority, some women may fall accustomed to putting beauty habits aside and making  some of the winter hair care mistakes below.  Here are 4 winter hair mistakes to avoid

Winter Hair Mistake #1: Over-Drying Your Hair

Switch to air drying your hair. Always use a heat protectant on hair, such as Jane Carter Solution Revitalizing Leave-In Conditioner prior to heat styling. And try protective, “heatless” styles.

Winter Hair Mistake #2: Forgetting to Bundle Up

Reach for a scarf, hat, or cap to provide a barrier between your hair and the elements

Winter Hair Mistake #3: Washing TOO Often

Try co-washing instead

Winter Hair Mistake #4:  Dry Scalp

It is very important to get rid of dry scalp. Dry scalp may lead to itchiness and infection. To prevent dry scalp one needs to moisturize the scalp, try Jane Carter Solution Scalp Nourishing Serum.

Ladies, how do you keep your hair from getting dry and damaged in the winter?

  1. I have fine hair & baby fine nape issues. Last winter I got a Fingercomber wig & wore it from January to April & used Qhemet products & S Curl. I retired from teaching in June & can now do what I please with no rush,work or hair drama. Pampering is the rule ! This time I started in November because of recent cold snaps.Took my Fingercomber to a salon & had it cut down into the exact same big afro I wore in the 70s. Even took a 70s photo of me to guide the stylist. Looks just like my hair did back then ! LOL. I just wash my hair with Tropic Isle JBCO line:shampoo,condish,& leave in condish, use Qhemet BRBC,AOHC, Aethiopika butter,etc, depending on what my hair needs at the time. Hot oil treatments with Extra dark JBCO & other oils,use Megatek as a protein condish off & on. Just wear my ‘fro all winter & call it a day !
