Headbands can make styling natural hair quick and easy. They work well on all hair types and lengths. I like to wear headbands to add style and color to my wardrobe, but more often, a headband is a lifesaver on bad hair days. See the 3 ways I wear headbands while avoiding a tension headache and damaging my edges. These looks are fun to create with your headbands that are pretty, but have unusual material that you don't want against your hairline.
Cold winter air outside, cozy heat inside, and fuzzy winter gear are all out to zap moisture from your skin and hair this winter. Your hair and scalp will get dry and itchy as winter weather gets underway. Over the years, I have noticed clients start to complain about itching and unusual shedding in November once the effects of winter have set in good. Winter's harshness may show up as an itchy scalp, excessive shedding, or strands that break easily. If this is the case for you, your body is telling you that you need to nurture your scalp and hair better. Now is the time to start if you haven't already. You'll need to take preventive measures both internally and topically to keep your curls hydrated during winter months.

The first item up for grabs is my all time favorite moisturizer, Dudley's PCA. I have been using this moisture retainer for the past 20 years and have yet to find anything that compares to its ability to help my hair retain moisture. It works well on all hair types as a leave in conditioner. I like that is blends well with other products. Some leave in conditioners cause gels to roll up and create build up. I use it as an all over leave-in conditioner immediately after shampooing and to add moisture to all my styles in between shampooing. It is even lightweight enough to use on silkened natural hair.
