1. Oil Treatment

Any Oil that works for you:
Jojoba oil
Vitamin E oil

Create the mixture of oils of your choice(adding 10 drops each). Blend the mixture well for 1 to 2 minutes and warm it up.

What to do next? Apply this mixture to your warm wet hair and massage it gently. Let it remain on your hairs while you shower by covering your hair with a plastic cap.

After rinsing, wash with shampoo and rinse thoroughly with cold water followed with a conditioner.

***Oil Treatment will keep your hair shiny and soft.

2. Honey Treatment

Step 1. Simply take a 1/2 of cup of warmed honey and massage gently from tip to root.

Step 2. Cover your hair with a plastic cap while your shower.

Step 3. After 10-30 minutes follow with a shampoo and rinse it properly with cool water.

Protect your hair when when facing harsh weather by...

3. When out and about use a silk scarf or hat before going out in cold harsh weather. This will cover/protect your hair. Do not use a tight hat for this will put stress on your edges and when you do wear a hat make sure you wear a silk scarf first before the hat (usually the liner is made out of cotton). I even take it a step farther and mist my hair with hair SPF.
