Here are a few tips aimed at growing your natural hair and preventing it from drying up or breaking.

Use an oil-based moisturiser

Using heavy oil-based moisturisers helps to lock in the moisture in your hair, allowing it to stay moist when exposed to the cold, dry air. Self magazine wrote that dry air also means all hair textures should focus on weekly hair treatments to replace lost moisture.

Decrease heavy-heat hair styles

To prevent breakage and split ends from heavy heat and dryness, rather use leave-in conditioners and creams to retain moisture. 

Wear protective styles

Styling your hair in various styles that can help to lock in moisture for your hair and prevent dryness, can help tremendously during the winter season. The protective styles like box braids, weaves or wigs are also a great accessory for any winter outfit. Don't forget to moisturise your scalp during the evenings.

Use dry shampoo

Those with oily hair might find their hair goes limp whenever they step out after styling their hair. Self magazine writes that by using a good spray for thickening tonic, or even using dry shampoo, women are able to keep their hair fuller and glossy.
