  Fashion, Lifestyle, Tutorials, Wiki

1. Head wraps & Headscarves

Wearing head wraps and scarves ensure that your hair is protected from dust, and also, ensure that the moisture in your hair doesn’t dry out too quickly.
Head wraps are also a huge fashion statement, you can either use a satin or silk material or even Ankara.

2. Massaging your scalp with oil
.
Massaging your hair with oil prevents it from drying out, and ensures that blood circulation increases, which in turn encourages hair growth. You can use coconut oil, olive oil, jojoba oil ( has similar properties to the natural oil produced by our scalp) etc
.
3. Go extra on the conditioner
.
Most naturals already use a deep conditioner or a leave-in treatment, but you may need to use both during the harmattan, especially those living up North. To avoid build-up, deep condition your hair first, then shampoo, then leave in, that way you get the benefits of a deep conditioning, your scalp is cleaned, and the leave-in can do its work on clean hair.
.
4. Protective styles are the way to go
.
It’s advisable to rock protective styles until warm weather comes. Braids, twists, top knots, and Bantu knots will keep your ends hidden away from cold harmattan and lessen the amount of styling you have to do on a daily basis.
.
5. What you eat
Be sure to eat foods rich in vitamins and minerals, as it is a sure way to keep your hair follicles happy, and hair growth consistent. Also, drink lots of water to stay hydrated.
