TOP 10 TIPS FOR NATURAL HAIR CARE

  1. CONDITIONER IS YOUR BEST FRIEND! CHOOSE ONE THAT MAKES YOUR HAIR SOFT AND PLIABLE. IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE SUPER EXPENSIVE, YOU JUST NEED TO LIKE THE WAY IT MAKES YOUR HAIR FEEL, THUS MAKING IT EASIER FOR YOU TO DEAL WITH. MY FAVORITE AT THE MOMENT IS THIS ONE.
  2. DETANGLE NO MORE THEN ONCE A WEEK, IF THAT. TOO MUCH DETANGLING WILL LEAD TO BREAKAGE, THERE FOR STUNTING HAIR GROWTH.
  3. DITCH SHAMPOO. IT’S SO DRYING, AND WE NEED TO KEEP ALL THE MOISTURE WE CAN. SIMPLY USE YOUR FAVORITE CONDITIONER AS YOU WOULD YOUR SHAMPOO. IF YOU HAVE PRODUCT BUILD UP, USE A CLARIFYING SHAMPOO OR APPLE VINIGAR RINSE ONCE A MONTH. I CAN ADMIT I WAS A BUBBLE ADDICT, BUT SINCE GOING ‘THE NO-POO’ ROUTE MY HAIR HAS GROWN AND MAINTAINED ITS LENGTH.
  4. LIMIT HEAT TO ONCE OR TWICE A MONTH. TOO MUCH HEAT WILL DAMAGE YOUR CURL PATTERN AND EVENTUALLY CAUSE YOU TO HAVE STRAIGHT SPOTS AND OR ENDS.
  5. CHOOSE A GO TO (WHAT I LIKE TO CALL 2 FOR 1)PROTECTIVE STYLE, FOR EXAMPLE TWIST FOR 1WEEK, TAKE DOWN TWIST AND WEAR  YOUR FRO FOR ANOTHER WEEK.
  6. PROTECT YOUR HAIR AT NIGHT. EITHER WITH A SATIN BONNET, OR SILK OR SATIN PILLOW CASE. THE FRICTION FROM COTTON CAN CAUSE THINNING, AND BREAKAGE.
  7. DO NOT OIL YOUR SCALP! PUT OIL ON YOUR ENDS. YOUR SCALP NEEDS TO BREATH!!
  8. USE AN OLD T-SHIRT TO DRY YOUR HAIR INSTEAD OF A TOWEL. THE TEXTURE CAUSES FRIZZ!
  9. WHEN DRYING YOUR HAIR, DO NOT VIGOROUSLY SHAKE YOUR HAIR ABOUT. THIS CAUSES FRIZZ AS WELL! SIMPLY MOVE THE SHIRT IN A DOWNWARD MOTION AS YOU GENTLY RING THE WATER OUT. I ACTUALLY PULL THE SHIRT OVER MY HEAD AS IF IM GOING TO PUT IT ON, THEN BEND DOWN BRINGING THE NECK OF THE SHIRT AROUND MY HEAD, AND WITH MY HAIR HANGING DOWN WRAP THE REMAINDER OF THE SHIRT AROUND INTO A BIG BUN/KNOT, UNTIL IM READY TO DEAL WITH IT.
  10. ROCK IT!! WEAR YOUR GOD GIVEN TEXTURE WITH CONFIDENCE

 YOU’RE WELCOME! 🙂

    Great tips! I went no-poo a few years ago and have not looked back. I use Dr. Bronner’s baby mild castille soap to wash and citrus conditioning rinse to condition once or twice within two weeks. My hair has never been healthier. I will be putting #s 9 and 10 to use, as I have noticed that towels bring out the frizz in my hair.
