My Winter Hair Care Plan

This post is sponsored by Mirum.  Thoughts and opinions are my own.

Winter is coming and maybe here already for some areas inthe US.  The cold weather can wreak havoc on your hair and scalp.  I wear protective styles 75% of the time, but I still do my best to maintain my hair underneath.  In the winter scalp tends to become dry, flaky and itchy.  In my adult years I learned that my dry scalp and flakes were result of dandruff, not because I didn’t use enough oil.  I wanted to share with you how I plan to take care of my hair and scalp with the help of Dove’s DermaCare line available at BJ’s.

This post is sponsored by Dr. Miracle’s.  Thoughts and opinions are my own.

I’m still on a high from the Dr. Miracle’s Feelin Myself Weekend during the ATL stop for OTRII just a couple of weeks ago.   Dr. Miracle’s pulled out all the stops for 3 lucky winners and their guests for an action-packed Bey & Jay weekend.  During that weekend I had the opportunity to host an amazing conversation over a VIP dinner by Chef Shaw Osbey.  We talked about our healthy hair journeys as well as self-care.  I wanted to continue the healthy hair conversation online and share my favorite Dr. Miracle’s products as well as new additions to their collection.  Check out what’s in my bag.

Protective styles may be low-maintenance, but you still have to take care of your hair and scalp underneath. I wanted to share with you how I maintain a healthy scalp with a few simple tips and the help of Dove DermaCare Scalp Dryness & Itch Relief Shampoo and Conditioner.

Our Favorite Hair Gels & Edge Control

We all know that edges ain’t loyal.  I lost all my edges (and more) after I had Harper about a year and a half ago.  You can read about it HERE.  I’m happy to report that my edges have returned *praise break*.  It was a long journey of trying to cover up my bald spots without wearing a wig.  I did try rocking a wig once but I kept moving it around like I was wearing a hat…not a good look when you’re in public.  This year I’m letting it all hang out this summer.  I’ve been weave and braid free for over a month.  I know that doesn’t sound long but with two girls, trying to work out and a busy social calendar, it seems like forever.  Because I’m a lazy naturalista, my go to style is a low or high bun.  I just wash, brush and go.  With that being said, I’ve been going through a lot of gel and edge control.  I thought I would share my favorites.
