I have had a back and forth battle with my hair my entire life. As the old saying goes, you always want what you don’t have. It wasn’t until recent years that I truly learned to love and embrace my God-given hair, crazy curls and all!
Growing up, I always wished I had those cool-girl waves. You know, the type of hair that looks so effortlessly chic, yet laid back. I’ll be honest, sometimes I still wish I had that. But recently, I have truly come to love and appreciate the hair I have been given. After all, one of life’s greatest lessons is learning to admire someone else’s beauty without questioning your own!
If you have curly hair like mine, then you know how hard it can be to keep those locks moisturized. Even if you don’t have curls, you still know the pain of keeping soft and moisturized hair in the dead of winter!
I’m firm believer in the power of essential oils. Whether it be for relaxation, aches and pains, or skin care, oils have great healing powers. Your hair care is no exception! For my winter hair care, I use a lot of tea tree oil and Moroccan oil.
Immediately after a shower, I will put some Moroccan oil in the palm of my hand and work it through my hair, focussing on the ends. I’ll then fill my palm with a generous amount of Moroccan oil curl cream and scrunch my hair upside down.
For a deep moisturizing treatment, I’ll fill my palm with tea tree oil and work it through my hair, massaging into my scalp as well. Please note: tee tree oil tends to make your hair look very greasy! I only do this at night when I plan to shower in the morning – otherwise, your hair may look greasy the next day.
