Here at Grass-fields, we know how important it is to make sure your hair remains at its best whatever the season. Let us show you five ways to protect those natural curls in the cold of winter.
Moisturise it with oils
You don't want your hair to dry out due to the harsh cold winds. Oil is a good way to make sure it stays nice and has the moisture locked in. You could use oil-based hair moisturisers or go the whole way, and just use olive oil. This wonder oil is not just for food, it could give you just the hair fix you need. Here's a tip: do it just before you shampoo your hair - it acts as a kind of conditioner too!

Headwraps are a yes
Okay, so downside, you won't be able to flaunt your new protective styles. But on the plus side your hair is protected and you can find some fashionable ways to keep it covered.
