Today I left home with my hair let out and feeling quite pretty, but very soon I had to rethink and put my scarf on my head instead. I’d rather look like a crazy lady than damage my hair with these extremely low temperatures (it was 10 below zero today, but it felt like minus 20 degrees!).
My two best precautions for skin and hair in minus temperatures:
- Protecting hair by wearing a cap and actually tucking in the ends under the jacket. Yes, when you come inside and take everything off your hairstyle probably won’t be as beautiful as what you’re used to, but it’s better then ending up with dry and brittle hair!
- When it comes to my skin, my favorite thing to use in winter is shea butter. I put some on my face in the morning for moisturizing, and I always carry around a small pot of it in my bag. I use it for my hands, cuticles, lips and face whenever I need to.
