With winter just around the corner, keeping your hair in top condition and looking good . Regardless of whether you wear your crown natural or prefer to have it silky and relaxed, it is important to make sure it stays healthy.

These celeb-inspired hairstyles will have you slaying the whole of winter, while keeping your hair healthy and protected.

 

GET WIGGED UP LIKE NADIA NAKAI

During the colder months, you can keep your natural hair safely tucked under a wig. Nadia Nakai is known for looking good IN a well-maintained wig and adding a bit of colour, depending on the occasion.

You can do the same by ensuring your wigs are washed and regularly treated.  It is ideal to have neatly plaited cornrows underneath a wig and to moisturise them regularly. Wash your hair and get a new set of cornrows once they start looking untidy.

Songstress Nandi Madida has managed to keep her fade trendy and well-maintained over the years. If your hair is short and stylish, playing around with a bit of colour on your fade like Nandi might not be a bad idea.

You can go for any colour that tickles your fancy. Ensure that you keep your hair neatly trimmed and in tiptop condition. The advantage? You can put on a wig on days when you crave a different look or if you feel your natural hair is a bit too exposed during the cold weather.

BE THE QUEEN OF CORNROWS LIKE SHO MADJOZI

Cornrows are always a good idea and they come in different kinds, lengths and sizes. The John Cena hitmaker shows off hers in a way that is trendy and unique .

You too can get cornrows in a style that suits you, and if you’re into colour, you can look bright and beautiful in the cold dark months. Remember to keep your cornrows neat and moisturised. Get them redone once they start looking untidy and you’re basically set for winter.
