What a whirlwind it’s been here in NYC these past few weeks! From NYFW, the never ending Polar Vortex to a lackluster Valentine’s day (well for me at least), to say I need to relax, relate and release is an understatement! With this horrid winter season I am not in the mood for anything pertaining to hair and that’s where protective styling made its glorious ascension into my life.

What is protective styling you ask? Well les petites, it’s an ingenious approach to haircare that involves the standard treatment of one’s hair from shampoo, conditioner and treatments- blah, blah, blah but with a little something extra like extensions, wigs or sew-in weaves which alleviates the stress of daily styling - a timesaver on days when it’s a blizzard outside and you need to quickly schlep to the store before you are snowed in (which has been just about every other day this winter…Mother Nature, we need to talk!) This winter my protective styling regimen has included Head & Shoulders Moisture Care Collection and it’s been a game changer! On days when I am too spent to lift a finger and co-wash (omitting shampooing and using conditioner only for you dames and gents not familiar with mane jargon), to the ones where I go the full gusto and do all the steps needed for a haute mane of hair I use the Head & Shoulders Moisture Care Collection of shampoo, 2-in-1, co-wash and scalp soother all enriched with vitamin E , almond oil, coconut essence and dandruff-fighting ingredient zinc pyrithione (ZPT) that has transformed my mane just after a few washes. What I adore about the collection is once the product is activated with some good ol’ H20, the formula targets the scalp and penetrates into the surface skin - dry, lifeless hair and an ashy, itchy scalp you will not have when using this set -trust me! For instance this last NYFW I had absolutely no time for anything so I got wiggy with it and used the collection on my mane and it was haute!

I recently suffered a hand injury and with doctor’s orders of only using my right hand, I decided I will only co-wash my hair since it’s a fairly fast process and will get the job done. Being that the collection is designed for textured hair much like my hair, the entire task took no time at all - with the help of my sister who braided my hair and wearing one of my many wigs, I was good and out the door in under two hours. Les petites, what’s not to love? Usually during the fall/winter season my hair can get extremely dry and with this collection my hair has received much needed moisture and although I am flaunting a haute wig at the moment, I know my mane will be an attraction come this spring.
