I am most comfortable when I am warm. It's just something about heat that makes me feel alive. Staying warm is easy during the summer, but the rest of the year makes me shiver (seriously, even spring). I try to stay warm by any means necessary--even down to my hair routine. Here are some of my favorite "get warm" hair tips:
1. Silk-lined hats: Besides being fashionably darling, silk-lined hats are comfortable and warm. They superbly lock in heat on those bone-chilling and blustery days. Plus, the silk is great for helping to keep moisture in the hair. These hats are an all-around win.
2. Wigs and weaves: I love a good wig. It's my ultimate hair fix when I don't want to be bothered with my real hair or if I just want a different look. I also like to think of wigs (and weaves) as a second hat. Heat-givers and protective styles? That's the perfect cold-weather combo.
3. Heating caps and steamers: Heating caps and steamers are used so often because they intensify the hair's moisture levels. They also make my head feel oh-so-toasty. Whatever annoyances I feel due to being cold are eased away by the soothing warmth of my heating cap and steamer. I love my dryness-busters.
I'm always ready to get warm. I hope these tips send some warmth your way too. Cheers! (or should I say "warmth?")
