In winter, it is better to choose a hydrating mask and conditioner of the brand, which products you use in normal period. This time of year, dry and brittle hair that lacks hydration and nutrition are especially suffering. For such hair, use moisturizing masks and conditioners. By the way, moisturizer will help to solve problems with electrifying, which is the consequences of the lack of moisture in the curls.
Caring for hair in winter, stick to the Golden mean. Frequent use of masks can weigh hair down and give the opposite effect – they will become more dry, look limp and dirty. The best option is to apply an intense conditioning stuff once a week or two. The rest of the time, after shampooing it is better to use light conditioners and balms, suitable for your hair type and apply the product only on length, in no case not on the roots.

Regular use of scrub will speed up the metabolism and stimulate blood circulation, allowing the active ingredients of masks and conditioners are better absorbed, and hair will stay fresh and clean longer.
Don’t rub your hair after shampooing! It’s enough to wrap them with a towel and leave it for ten minutes. As soon as the wet strands dry a little, you can comb them with a brush. Curly hair, on the contrary, should not be combed in a dry state. It is better to sprinkle the strands with a smoothing spray or leave-in conditioner, then carefully disassemble with your fingers and form curls.
