In Uganda, there’s usually no hotter month than January probably because it is coupled with a lot of worrying about money. The lack of money doesn’t make the heat any better but you have to find coping mechanisms to be able to get through it all.
For the female pulsers, your hair care during this time is very crucial so here is how you can take care of your hair during this hot season:
Plait light hair
You need to plait hair styles that are light on the head because the big hair causes you to sweat a lot. Light hair also enables you to stay comfortable and manage the heat in a more friendly manner.
Let your hair out
As opposed to plaiting, you can simply leave your hair out during this time. This is very easy to maintain and style so you don’t have to stress a lot in the heat. This also gives room for your hair to aerate.
You don’t want your scalp to become very dry during this time, so it is important to oil your hair as often as possible so that your hair pours stay open. You can get yourself your preferred hair oil and pay for it using MTN Momo pay and stand a chance to win a shopping spree worth UGX 1,000,000.
Use head wraps
Head wraps should be something that every girl should have in their wardrobe. They are even more important during this time because they protect your scalp and hair from having direct contact with the hot sun and Ultraviolet rays which may damage your hair. Alternatively you can also use hats as opposed to head wraps.
With just these few tips, you should be able to go through the raining days of January easily.
