keep hair smooth and shiny. Their website is http://www.caheez.com or you can google silk/satin lined hats and I am sure many shops will show up.

#2. Trim Your Hair If you already have dry or split ends not trimming before or during winter months will make matters worse. So have your hair trimmed about half an inch to one inch depending on your damage, or if you are growing your hair like myself tell your hairstylist that you want dusting. There are techniques now a days that you can remove your split ends without removing length. Trimming your hair will keep it from drying even more during the cold, windy winter months.
#3. Use Less Heat Many may not realize that using excessive heat and the cold winter air can cause serious damage to your hair. Indoor heating is going to suck some of the moisture from your hair, don't help, by using flatirons, blow dryers and curling irons. If you must use heat after washing try letting your hair dry about 80%
before you start using the blow dryer or blow dry your hair on cool. # 4. Deep Condition Deep conditioning during the winter is a very important step to keeping your hair healthy and moisturized. Heated homes and work areas can dry out your hair, combat this by taking the time to do extra deep conditioning. Look for products which hold in moisture and use a good deep conditioner about once a week.
#5. Protective Styling I know I mention this in almost every post, but protective styling plays a big part in achieving healthy hair. If you are an avid reader/watcher of hair blogs or vloggers then you know that almost all of them promote protective styling, especially during the winter months. With all of the different types of hair styles, such as wig, weaves, buns, topknots and braids, there is a protective style for everyone. So find one you like or try them all just protect your hair this winter!
