TOP TIPS TO CARE FOR YOUR HAIR AND SKIN THIS HARMATTAN SEASON.

With the dry and cold air that greets you in the morning, you can't help but tell that Harmattan has come. With this season, you have to put in double the amount of work than you would normally do when it comes to hair and skincare. I have an old post here that mainly focuses on tools/product I need to help protect my hair. That said, I am going to share my top tips to help hydrate your hair and skin because this Harmattan be making most especially your hair dry out faster than the speed of light. 
  • Take plenty of fluids to help hydrate your hair and skin from the inside. By fluids, I mean water. 
  • Fruits that contain high percentage of water are your best friends like water melon, pineapple and oranges which are actually in season right now. 
  • If you deep condition once a month, increase to twice a month and if you do it every 2 weeks, increase to 3 times a month or every week. I know it's a lot of work but you don't want the harmattan season to pass by and you have clumps of hair on the floor, do you?! 
  • After having your bath in the morning, do not thoroughly towel dry, there should still be droplets of water on your body. Use oils or body butters to seal the moisture into your skin. This helps reduce the "ashy look"  that comes with this season and helps your skin retain moisture as well. 
  • If you are not used to carrying spray bottles around, this is the time to do so, just get a small one that fits in your bag so you can moisturize on the go. Water is your best friend right now. 
  • Invest in wigs as an alternative to protective styling but make sure you moisturize your hair before putting on the wig and also use a wig cap. 
  • Keep the ends of your hair tucked in always if you are going to carry your Natural hair during this period. 
  • Don't forget, use a Satin bonnet to help your hair retain moisture when you go to bed, you can purchase one here. It is reversible and stays on all night with the satin strap.
