Frizz and flyaways are caused by colder, drier fall air, both directly and indirectly. In conjunction with humectants in your products, low dew points can zap moisture from your hair. It is even worse when scratchy hats and scarves are worn, as well as when forced heat is used, and when diffusers are operated on a warm setting more often. Get your curls back on track during cold seasons with a few simple adjustments to your curly hair routine.
1. Trim any split ends.
Getting rid of frizz and adding health and integrity to your hair by snipping off the ends will not only remove the frizz but will also moisturize and detangle your hair better. Also, clumps of curls will be easier to style if there are no split ends.
2. Put clarifying in your curly hair routine.
If you don’t regularly clarify at least every four weeks (and more frequently if you have finer strands and are low density), it is an excellent healthy hair habit to start. Failure to clarify can lead to product build-up which can present as frizzy, flat, greasy hair. Clarifying is also essential for a healthy scalp.
3. Use a creamy leave-in conditioner in your curly hair routine.
When your hair needs lasting hydration, swap your light, spray leave-in for a richer formulation. Especially if your regular regimen isn’t working for you despite your best efforts, this is crucial. A good choice for your curly hair routine is tgin Miracle RepaiRx Protective Leave In Conditioner & tgin Green Tea Super Moist Leave In Conditioner. Curls feel hydrated and soft with these moisturizing and strengthening formulas.

4. Moisturize the flyaways.
As the day progresses, if you have a few dry curls reaching into the air for moisture, give them the hydration they seek. You can redefine those curls with a small amount of moisturizer.

Frequently Asked Questions About Curly Hair Routine In Cold Weather:
Due to a lack of moisture in the air, winter is harder on hair. A cold climate dries out hair, and a dry climate lacks moisture, resulting in limp curls and more brittle textures.
When the temperature drops below 35 degrees Fahrenheit, certain humectants in our styling products begin to draw moisture from the hair. Therefore hair becomes frizzy, loses its curl pattern, and breaks easily due to this condition.
Because cold air cannot hold moisture as well as warm air, a lower dew point means less moisture in the air. Your wavy or curly hair will look flat and lack definition because of this dryness. Therefore dew points below -1C/30F will almost always be dry cold air with little moisture.
It seems that curly hair thrives in moderate climates with dew points between 35°F and 50°F. Many curlies find that humectant-containing products can provide really pleasant results in this type of weather.
