NEW SEASON, NEW HAIR! HOW TO GET YOUR HAIR AUTUMN-READY
Is your hair ready for the new season? When it comes to winter haircare for natural hair, we’ve got your crown covered!
While we can hardly believe that summer is over, we’re excited to welcome the new season! Autumn can be tricky for our tresses – the colder weather can affect moisture levels and hair porisity, which in turn will modify the treatments and products we use to avoid those bad hair days.
If you’re looking for the best haircare for natural hair, our 4-step (no-fuss) system has everything you need to get luscious locks – no matter the temperature! Read on for tips on how to care for your tresses and restore the post-summer shine back in your crown…
Take time to do a “pre-shampoo”
Winter haircare for black hair doesn’t have to be so complex! It starts with a “pre shampoo”, which is vital to restore moisture into your hair after exposure to the harsh summer heat. The summer months can leave hair dry and dehydrated, and your scalp takes a beating due to an increase in heat, sweat and itchiness. Taking time to do a pre-shampoo will help strengthen natural hair, while adding a boost of much-needed moisture.
HAIRCARE TIP: Try this haircare solution for natural hair at home… Massage4 tablespoons of coconut oil into the scalp an hour before you wash your hair.Take a few minutes to gently work the oil into your scalp, massaging deeply to stimulate the hair follicles without causing breakage or damage.
Add a quality shampoo to your natural haircare regime
After gently rinsing out the coconut oil, make sure you have a nutrient-rich shampoo specifically made for natural hair. We recommend Boity Royal Cleanse Shampoo,
which is infused with antioxidant-rich Black Seed Oil, Shea Butter, and Argan Oil. The combination of these ingredients nourish and hydrate a dry and damaged scalp. As one of the best hair products to promote growth in black hair, this luxurious shampoo by Halo Heritage also helps control frizz and reduces shrinkage.
HAIRCARE TIP: Apply a small amount of the shampoo to your hands, then add
some water to create a rich lather. Massage the shampoo into your scalp to help
break down excess oil then rinse your hair with luke-warm water.
Don’t skip “Conditioner Day”!
With so many natural haircare products on the market, it’s hard to know which hair treatments for black hair are worth their weight in gold. When it comes to winter haircare for natural hair, conditioning is crucial!
The next step in your winter haircare routine is dedicated to restoring your hair’s moisture content. And it’s as simple as you think! Apply two R5 coin-sized amounts of conditioner from the mid-length to the end of your hair – we recommend Boity Royal Repair Conditioner, which is specifically formulated for fragile and dry hair. Leave the conditioner on for 5 minutes before rinsing off with luke-warm water.
If you’re prone to extremely brittle hair or you’re pressed for time, apply a leave-in conditioner such as Boity Supreme Leave-in Conditioner. Created for curly and coily hair, the lightweight conditioner is infused with Black Seed Oil, Coconut Oil, Vitamin E and Argan Oil, which work together to restore moisture, reduce frizz and soothe a dry scalp. Adding a leave-in conditioner will make styling natural hair so much easier, too.
HAIRCARE TIP: After exposure to the harsh summer heat, the best thing you can do for your natural hair in autumn is to stay away from heat styling tools. We also suggest doing “protective hairstyles” after every wash to keep the moisture locked in.
Did you know? The Boity Haircare range by Halo Heritage is 100% earth-friendly, and contains no sulfates, parabens, phthalates or gluten.
The final step in your natural haircare routine…
Give your natural hair some extra love with a rich serum, such as Boity Sovereign Repair Serum. Infused with Black Seed Oil as well as Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids, the serum nourishes fragile hair and enhances its overall strength. Combined with active ingredients like Vitamin B3 and bioactive Follicusan™, this “wonder serum” helps repair a tired scalp, and reduces excessive oil production.
HAIRCARE TIP: Get the chop! Spilt ends are common to Type 3 and 4 hair, which
over time can cause natural hair to become brittle or frizzy. Going for a trim (at least once during the season) is a great way to keep your hair healthier and thicker.
Finding time to commit to a consistent haircare regime can be a challenge. Our 4-step haircare system for natural hair will help bring your locks back to life. The result? Healthier, stronger, beautiful autumn hair you LOVE!
