As the seasons change, so are the needs of our locs. When the fall or winter season come around, you may notice that your skin will look more drier, which means that you have to have special products to replenish the natural moisture back into your skin. Well, your dreadlocks will require special care too during the cold winter months.
Fall/winter care for locs require more than just pampering your hair. It also means that your scalp will need proper care too. It is common for some people to experience dry, flaky scalp during the winter months. Learning to care for your dreads during these upcoming seasons will preserve the beauty of your locs.

Creating and Sticking to a Locs Regimen
As the brutally cold winter months approach, come up with a plan that works for you, so that you can adjust your locs care regimen to fit in the essential winter haircare products that is necessary.
Remember how much work you had to put in to get your dreads to the stage where they are now. Neglecting to take care of them during the winter, will have a devastating effect on them if they are not protected during the fall and winter months.
Fall/Winter Headwraps for Your Locs
Headwraps come in a wide array of colors and designs, and are great to cover your hair in the cold months. However, if you don’t want to be left with lint stuck in your dreads, you should choose a lint-free headwrap to cover your locs.
Winter Care Protective Styles
