Welcome!

You get a touch up when you have at lease an inch of new grow - about every 3 months. But this will depend on how long your hair is, how well you can manage your new growth, and how different your texturized hair texture is from your natural texture. I texturize about twice a year.

During the winter you want to keep your hair protected from the harsh, cold air so hats and hoodies are great especially when you are outside. But keep in mind that cotton, wool, and similar fabrics will dry your hair out too so get some silk/satin scarves and bonnets to wear underneath and for sleeping year round.

You might also need to use heavy moisturizers like shea butter instead of coconut oil over your moisturizer during the winter. If you use products with glycerin in them they will take moisture out of your hair if there isn't enough moisture in the air. Be careful with those products even when in the AC. You can also try deep conditioning more frequently. I would recommend giving yourself a deep treatment every week or every time you wash if you are having problems with dryness.

Can you tell us more about how often you was h your hair, what you wash it with, what products you use, etc? Around here we call that a regimen or reggie and it will help use give you better suggestions.

  Thank you so much for the advise. I use Design Essentials, Therapeutics Rx, SCurl Texurizer Stylin' Gel and Hawaiian Silky Moisturizer and Sheen. What form of Shea butter do you suggest for my hair? Does you hair get dry during sleep? I like not permimg my hair or using curling iron. It's just trying to get a hold on this new hair style. Embarrassed  So all suggestions are welcome.

I use some Design Essentials stuff but for straightening. Don't know anything about Therapeutics.

I would suggest unrefined but I really don't know because its a favorite on the hair boards but I don't use it! My hair does get drier while I sleep but I usually mist it with water or moisturizer in the morning to refresh my style and then put some oil over that.

Have you tried cowashing? Are you sleeping with silk or satin on your head or pillowcase?

Co-washing is washing with conditioner only.

Maybe some sprays such as the one from Scurl, or the one from the short looks line may help to moisturize. Sometimes its the only thing that will work for me when my hair gets too dry. Try one of the activator sprays with a lot of glycerin in it. The only thing is, you might not like the wet/greasy feel. Use it sparingly.

If you are waking up with crunchy hair than try moisturizing at night before you go to sleep. Dry hair will eventually lead to damaged hair so try to do whatever you can to keep it moist. Have you tried bagging? Do any of your products have silicone in them? Silicones make my hair crunchy no matter what. Have you tried clarifying to make sure you don't have build up? Sometimes when your hair won't hold moisture it is really because you need some protein to hold the moisture in. Try starting out with adding a little yogurt to your dc if you are not sure how your hair works with proteins.
