A Protective Style during the Winter

screen-shot-2016-12-09-at-12-32-31-pmI know winter is coming because the temperatures are dropping, the cold wind is blowing, and my face is starting to get tight. Don’t get me wrong, I think winter is a beautiful season, but being a California girl, I rather be at the beach than build a snowman. I recently moved back to New York City and I have found beauty products to keep my hair and skin moist. I have been focusing on my hair  a lot because my scalp tends to get dry. I’m used to wearing braids during the spring and summer, but I asked my myself “What’s wrong with wearing braids in the fall and winter ?”. Anyways, I asked my hairstylist if she knew any hair braiders and she did. I wanted my  braids to be long, unique, and fabulous and that is exactly what I got. The cornrow pattern is so cool, I don’t know how to describe  them, so I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. My scalp is exposed during the cold weather, so it is important that I wear a beanie, hat or scarf around my head when I go out. The best thing about having cornrows/braids in the cold is that I have easy access when it comes to moisturizing my scalp. It is so important that I give my scalp a lot of attention. Braids help my hair grow, but a healthy scalp helps my hair grow even faster. I’ve learned that braids are not a seasonal style for me, they are a style I can wear any day and everyday.
