It is that time of the year again! Where the season of the period adds to the discomfort we natural hair carriers tend to feel, due to the dry characteristics of our hair. Unlike straight hair, the oil we produce does not run down our hair but sits pretty on our scalp, accumulating with the dust to become crusty and itchy. This can result in breakage, blockage of pores, and unhealthy hair. The harmattan further exacerbates this. Hence you might want to adhere to the following tips to keep your hair healthy and moisturizer during this time, as you get on and around with your daily lives.
Best Dry Hair Remedy:
1. The Need For Water
This is not about pouring a huge amount of water, rather the sprinkling of water which we are all aware of. But this time instead of just daily, spritz your hair with water three times a day, especially on the tips of your hair, massaging the water into every strand of your hair. Yes! You will have to carry an applicator bottle around.
2. Hot Oil Treatment
This is the best treatment for this season. It gives your hair a healthy glow, strengthens your strands, de-tangles it, and moisturizes it to the fullest. Use natural oils of your choice, at least 3 (castor oil, coconut oil, and the likes), mix, and put it into a jar. Next boil a pot of water, put the jar into the hot water, and allow the oil mixture to heat. Caress your hair girl!

3. Protective Style Got You
After all this moisturizing, hydrating and massaging your hair needs to be kept in a style that will retain the products. This will keep the strands wet as possible and make sure you restrain your hands from always playing with the strands of your hair. Twisting and braiding your hair are some protective styles you can do. Where your comb at?
4. The Silk Scarf or Bonnet
I am sure most of us already have this, we wear it while at home and before sleeping. Well, I am here to tell you “You are about to up your game”. When going out on a dry day like this weather has us doing most times, you might have to wear your silk scarf in a fashionable manner of your choice to protect your root and strands, or rather than a bonnet, a face cap, or bucket hat will do. Cover your hair, it is dry outside sis.

5. Please Have A Wash Day
If you don’t have a scheduled period for pre-reading this, this is the right weather to get that calendar ticked. During this period after all the application, a day should be set out at least once in 3 weeks to have your hair rid of all that oil and little dust assemblage.
