While there is no such thing as “winter” in Cali, we know many of our relaxed hair hunnies are struggling to survive in the rain, sleet, snow, and cold in other parts of the nation (shout out to our Chi Town and New York hunnies). I think we all know by now GROWTH isn’t necessarily the issue because our hair grows ¼ of an inch to ½ inch each month, maybe even 1 inch if you are about that daily scalp massage and hair vitamin life (hi Manetabolism, Hair Yum, Hairfinity, and Sugar Bear). However, LENGTH RETENTION – the thing that allows us to see our growth, the thing that is a byproduct of proper moisturizing and hair care practices, the thing that most us drool over when scrolling through IG hair pages – is the REAL STRUGGLE.

Let’s be real, keeping your hair moisturized and giving it the right amount of TLC in the winter may seem downright daunting – maybe even impossible. Thankfully we have Leah from A Relaxed Gal to help our relaxed hair hunnies winterize their hair regimens and adjust their hair habits during the winter season.
