Keep Hydrating
Never skip applying a leave-in crème serum. Always remember, curly hair is naturally drier than other types of hair, which can mean it requires more nourishment. So in this case, it’s important to remember to keep moisturizing and hydrating your curls. One of my favorites right now is Dove Hair’s Quench Absolute Ultra Nourishing Crème Serum. Its lightweight formula is great for curls because it doesn’t weigh your hair down and the consistency helps coat strands, which helps to fight frizz and define your curls.

Protect
Because of the cold and dry weather, the fall/winter seasons are perfect for protective styling. You are going to want to shield and protect your hair from the elements such as cold air and snow. For the winter months, I recommend a lot of updo hairstyles and braids. One of my favorite updo styles is the top knot. Using accessories such as hats and scarves are also great because it’ll protect your hair from cold winds and more.
