Winter Hair Care Tips for Women of Color from Dana's Loft Hair

Recently, Everything She Wants shared my hair makeover at dana's loft HAIR.  During my visit, personable celebrity hair stylist Dana Gibbs also gave me a few winter hair care tips I'd like to share:

Use a moisturizing shampoo.  It's important to cleanse your scalp, but you don't have to get your hair squeaky clean anymore.  So you don't strip your hair of its essential oils, use a moisturizing shampoo.

Keep it simple.  With so many products on the market, people get confused.  We use so much product, it starts to work against you.  Try Dana's Kera Plus line or stick with a regimen that works for you.

Condition, condition, and condition.  Cowash (washing your hair with conditioner instead of shampoo) in between washes to keep your hair moisturized and sit under the dryer with a deep conditioner.  After styling, put in a leave-in conditioner.

A silk scarf is your friend.  Sleep in a silk scarf and wear a silk scarf under a wool hat to protect your edges.
