An Editor’s Winter Hair Styling Routine For Straight Natural Hair

A simple natural hair styling regimen.

Reading about how other women go about their daily beauty routines is so inspiring. Some of us wake up and dread having to carry out an entire routine before heading out the door. Your morning regimen can help you wake up and set the mood for the day ahead. When you look good, you truly feel good too. I’m giving you a peek into my daily winter hair styling routine for straight natural hair in hopes that it can help another woman with my hair type or simply inspire someone to do what she needs to get her day started and to keep her hair looking fresh.

Read on for my super quick daily winter hair styling routine for straight natural hair.

In the Morning

My morning haircare routine is right to the point. I’m not like most girls that have a super long haircare routine in the morning. There are women who wash their hair every single day. If that were me, I’d probably have no hair left on my head. Why? My hair type doesn’t need daily washing and it can do more harm than good. Over washing will lead to super dry and damaged hair for me. In the mornings, I simply remove my silk scarf and comb my hair out from its wrap.

Products I use in the morning:

Sometimes, I don’t use any products on my hair because it will weigh it down. However, if my hair is in need of shine, I’ll add a drop of a lightweight oil or a serum. Right now, I alternate between Love Beauty and Planet Hope And Repair Coconut Oil & Ylang Ylang 3-In-1 Benefit Oil and Nexxus Oil Infinite Nourishing Hair Oil.

If I’m restyling my hair with heat, I will apply a natural heat protectant like argan oil or a serum like TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum to act as a protective barrier and add shine. I don’t use any heat protectants that have water on my dry hair because it will revert my straight hair back into its naturally curly state.
