I use a blend of coconut, castor, and olive oil. It's the best thing I could have ever done for myself. :)

I DC once to twice per week with Aubrey Organics honeysuckle rose condish, mixed with Tropical Traditions COconut Cream COncentrate and sometimes some honey. When I twist up my hair at night I spritz with distilled water and then if I feel like it needs extra, I add some hair butter - Asha's THe Mane Attraction. I also use Ayurvedic vatika oil, because it's base is coconut oil, which is shown to be moisturizing. :)

Ohhh that's looks deelish!

I've been keeping my hair moisturized this winter by putting my hair is abut 6 twists to protect at night, moisturizing with a cream and sealing the ends with castor oil (I try to do this every other night).

I keep my hair moisturized this winter by baggying! Honestly, it makes my hair feel better than anything else I've done and I'm sure if I was more consistent than I am with it, my results would be even better! Another thing I've done is paid more attention to what I'm using to seal... right now, Jamaican Black Caster Oil is the best sealant since it's so thick and the weather outside is so cold. The last thing I do is try to wear hats (with my satin bonnet underneath) when I'm going to be outside for more than a few seconds in order to protect my hair from the cold, dry air.

I keep my hair moisturized in the winter by mainly wearing braid extensions. This is my protective style that keeps my hair protected and from excessive drying. Nonetheless, I mix African Royale Daily Doctor or Braid Spray with Infusium and spray all over my hair until I feel it is moist and has a wet feel. Then I seal with extra virgin olive oil to retain the moisture. I do this once or twice a day depending on the condition outside. And I always wrap my hair in a satin scarf to retain the moisture. Also when I shampoo my hair. I only shampoo my scalp and when I apply my conditioner i leave it in as opposed to washing it out. And so far it is doing a great job!

I condition my hair with a mix of lemon juice, water, olive oil and my favorite conditioner (right now it is Herbal Essence Coconut Milk or Tigi Moisture Maniac) put a cap over my hair then I hit the sauna and steam room for 20-30 min to let the mix seep in. Then I wash it out and wash my hair one time with my Matrix shampoo, add on a leave in conditioner, oil my scalp with Jojoba Oil and leave the house. It keeps my hair moisturized for a week or two.

I have been having a bit of issue this winter. I had been using blended beauty products but it seems that my hair was expressinng greater need this winter. So I switched it up and have been using oyin handmade whipped pudding and honey hemp conditioner and greg juice.

I use Aussie moist conditioner and shea butter or coconut oil to seal my ends. I do this whenever my hair feels dry to the touch. I find my hair is drier in the winter months, so I have to make sure I listen to what my strands are trying to tell me.

Theoretically it would go according to my regimen where I:
-put in a protective style like braids or twists
-do daily scalp massages
-Spray daily with my Special Spritz (water, honey, castor oil, and EO's)
-Seal moisture with QB products, and seal ends with castor oil.
-tie at night with a satin scarf
-pre-poo with Vatika Oil, DC with yogurt,wash with Castile soap, and rinse with ACV weekly.

I maintain a protective style, pre-poo, wash, and rinse weekly; and spritz and cover my hair with a satin scarf at night when I remember. :)

After cowashing I use shea butter and jojoba oil before twisting my hair. I am finding that I need to add moisture daily with this harsh winter weather:(

I keeping my hair in braids or twists that are styled in a bun. Every other day, I mositurize them with water and my whipped shea butter/olive oil/jojoba oil mixture, and put it back up in a bun. On alternate days, I oil my scalp with Jamaican black castor oil...Once a month, I shampoo, deep condition, detangle and moisturize with my homemade leave in - KCKT, aloe vera gel, castor oil, and olive oil, and braid our twist my hair and start all over again!
