    Default Protect hair in the cold

    If you wear a knitted headband (wider one) in the winter with the bun left "outside" would that be OK or is a beanie much better for the hair because it covers all of it?

    I wear my scoodie over my hair and put a little oil in my hair in the winter.

    Of course, the more covered it remains, the more protected it will be, but you don't have to go overboard. As long as you keep your hair hydrated and pampered and wear protective hairstyles often, you can do either. On the coldest days, I would try to cover as much as I could.

    I think how windy a place is has a big impact on your hair as well - I know that cold + wind damages my hair far more than just cold. But everybody's hair is different.

    Thanks for your answers girls! It gets really cold here in sweden, but during autumn/spring I guess a headband would be OK!

    I live in a dry, cold climate and seeing what it does to my skin is enough to make me keep my hair oiled and covered during the harshest winter months.

    I do an undo, usually single or double bun, and cover it under my jacket hood.

    Like others have said the more covered it is the better it's protected. The better protected it is the less damage will happen. The winter time is the season to pamper your hair a bit more.

    I just bought my first snood (from asnoodforallseasons based on reccs from LHC folks) so I can use it for cold weather hair protection over a bun. Usually, I just pile it in a hat or oil it and use a headband, but my ends always get super dry...no matter how much oil I use. Her snoods are pretty, and look like they would be pretty protective.
