Question: Which hair oils are best suited for cold weather?
Heavier oils should be your go-to during the winter because of the dryer, cooler air. Opt for olive, castor, jojoba, argon, or avocado oils and butters instead of the coveted coconut or grapeseed that may be too light for the harsh winter air. One of the best ways to ensure that you keep your hair moisturized is to apply these heavier oils/butters to damp hair, to ensure that it doesn’t just sit on the hair surface but actually penetrates the cuticle.
Reece is a NYC based hairstylist and at 23, she is currently a student at the Carsten Institute of Cosmetology in New York City where she is expected to graduate in January 2015. At Carsten, Reece has made a point to not only learn the traditional techniques and services offered but has also opened herself to learning how to apply those same techniques to diverse hair types, especially naturally, curly hair. One of Reece’s goals, as she grows in the beauty industry, is to be a trailblazer in the movement of professionalizing natural hair care.
