Are you ready for the Fall and Upcoming Winter?

The Fall time is a time of change and getting ready for the winter. I usually love the summertime because I can Co-wash more. Well that didnt happen this summer. My hair tangled up something fierce and I just couldnt do it so I really didnt know what to do this summer so I started henna'n more. I actually loved it. It kept me on a routine and that started me into the 100 Day Challenge.

I live in northern NJ and the winter time is very harsh, however I never have a problem because Im a lover of thick butters and creams. I rarely wear puffs in the winter. Im more of a protective two strand twist or weaves/braids girl.

Depending on where you live you might want to get an idea of what you want to do for the winter and get a plan together so you will be prepared. Usually I stretch my hair first and then style. Either using a hair milk for moisture and a thick oil to twist and seal with.

I like Myasha's Hair Milk,Karen's Body Beautiful Hair Milk/Nectar, Afrodetangler, Carols Daughter's Hair Milk , Darcy's Botanicals Transitioning Creme, or Afroveda's Ultra Hydrating Hair Creme

My oil of choice to twist with is Hairveda's Cocasta oil and I'm finishing up Qhemet Biologic's Castor and Moringa oil.

If I'm not using a hair milk to moisture, I use a leave in and then style with a light gel and heavy butter product. Some nice leave in's are Oyin Handmade Honey Hemp Conditioner, Curl Junkie's Hibiscus& Banana Honey butta leave in , Qhemet Biologic's Olive and Honey Hydrating Balm, and Sheamoisture Leave in conditioner, Qhemet Biologic's Amla and Olive Heavy Cream, Qhemet Biologic's Burdock Butter root cream and Qhemet Biologic's Cocoa Detangling Ghee

My gel product that I use with everything for a little hold is Afrovedas PUR Whipped Gelly

I'm breaking out Myasha's Main Attraction hair butter for the winter. Its thick, creamy and gets the job done well.

When late October/November kicks in I will also add weekly steam treatments in.
