Winter weather can cause more blow-drying and straightening than usual, and brittle hair can make even the most wonderful time of the year seem a little less joyous. There are so many styles women can do that do not require heat and can be worn outdoors or at work. The goal this winter is to combat unwanted dryness and breakage that comes with all that harsh winter weather and artificial heat exposure.
Two ideas for starters are wigs and weaves! It's a win-win. With wearing a weave your natural hair is safely braided underneath and has plenty of time away from the blow dryer. The good part is you can apply heat to your weave if you only love a straight texture hair look instead of your own hair. Same rules apply for a wig, the only difference is you can remove your wig at your own leisure and treat your natural hair when you see fit. Both your weave and wig are protective styles. They can be styled into different looks and colors as well, which is always fun. It gives women who wear them an opportunity to try new things without risking anything happening to their natural hair.
