Winter Hair Care Tips

Hollllllaaaaa Guys!

Now as we all can tell, Old Man Winter is here to collect all the moisture and sunshine out of our lives to leave our lips, skin & hair parched 😒 But no worries, I have compiled some quick & useful tips on taking care of (y)our hair during the winter. Now bear in mind as I am compiling this mini list, I am also educating myself as I go along. Also, I’m quite lazy when it comes to things like this (judge me not) so I’ve selected the simplest steps to do below: 

1.  Wash hair less often – 
Washday
Great news for those of us that dread wash day! Because shampoo tends to strip your hair of its natural oils, you want to lessen how many times you wash it. So, if you were washing your hair 4x in a month, you can reduce it to maybe 2x instead. You can also opt for Co-wash – short for “conditioner-only washing.” It means skipping shampoo and relying solely on conditioner.
2. Deep condition like crazy! –

As often as possible, I would say once or every two weeks should suffice. I was using the Hollywood Beauty dc for a while but I now make my own deep conditioner DIY Deep Conditioner but any over the counter conditioner should suffice. Please make sure to read ingredients before purchasing. 
3. Wear protective styles –  such as braids, twists, weave, crochet wigs; this way your hair gets to rest, while your ends are protected & aren’t exposed to the harsh climate. The duration of time you keep your protective sytles in is entirely up to you.
4. No shower cap!

Yes, you read right, leave that shower cap alone! The steam in your bathroom while taking a shower will do wonders for your hair’s moisture retention. What I do after I shower is I seal the moisture my hair just retained by applying oils (I use Olive oil/Castor oil).  If you’re antsy about not wearing a shower cap at all, you can poke holes into it, that way you’ll still get some sort of moisture. 
5. Wear hats with satin/silk lining –

Kinda like Skatsz hats ha! Would you look at that, 😂😅 No, but seriously there’s no point in doing all that work to retain moisture only to throw on a cotton/wool hat that’ll suck out it all right out; leaving your hair  brittle & dry and prone to breakage! Whoo chilay hahaha I wish you guys could hear me laughing so hard as I write these blog posts yo!

TGIF Guys!

I have exciting news! OUR WEBSITE IS HERE!!!! YAYYYYYYYYYY

We’re are finally moving from amazon & ebay to our very own webby!  I know quite a number of people have inquired about when our site will be up and running, & to the people that didn’t have an ebay account but created one just to complete their order with us; we love you hahah

So yeah, Its been a long time coming but you can now place your orders for your satin lined beanies at: 

www.skatsz.com

Also another update is that we’ve gotten some new colors in stock! To be honest my original plan was to make a post about each color as they came in but let me tell ya, procrastination is real!  I think there should be like a mandatory class in college that teaches students how NOT to wait till last minute to do stuff & you have to take it every semester till senior year.. but that’s a conversation for another time. Anywho below are our new colors 🙂

Bye Bye Summer, Hello Fall!

Hey Guys!

Labor Day pretty much kicks off the unofficial start of Fall/Autumn season. Can you believe summer is pretty much over?! It feels like it was just yesterday we were putting away our winter clothes right? And now Daylight Savings will soon end altogether & the sun will start to set ridiculously early like 4pm, and by 5pm it becomes completely dark outside (crying right now). But I guess it’s not so bad, since people start to complain about summer after a while, how they’re tired of the heat, the bugs, being sun burnt blah blah… Meanwhile I love summer & wish it could stay for 9 months out the year & then have the fall type weather for the other 3 months. But hey I can dream can’t I? Anyway I think we all love fall for some of the same reasons; it signifies the end of year: which means the holidays: which means family & friends (thanksgiving & Xmas), the crisp air, the change in fashion, & the Halloween decorations amongst other things.  

So in anticipating the arrival of fall, here are some of the season’s staple items: boots, sweaters, beanies, chunky cardigans, flannels, bomber jackets, hoodies, timberlands for all my New Yorkers (even though y’all wear them thangs religiously throughout the whole year hahaha). I’ve attached some pics below for your viewing pleasure. So cheers to season of the layer ups amongst other things!

 

What’s your fav part of the fall season?
