Usually, the natural hair needs treatment every two weeks, which includes; a wash, conditioning and a leave-in conditioner. Well, if you are doing this at home, comb your hair after applying the conditioner, while it’s soft and tangle free. This is unlike those braid colour combos you make on your hair once in a while.
This can also be done at a hair salon, but here are the five painless tips to help look after your natural hair;
1. COMB IT RIGHTLY:
When you have a curly hair, it means you’ll be dealing with knots and tangles from root to tip at times. Knots are caused by product build up in the hair or double curls, which cause hair breakage when combed, if hair is not handled gently. Therefore, gently run your fingers through your hair before brushing or combing it. This will help eliminate big knots without breaking your hair. Separate your hair and comb small sections with a wide-tooth comb. After combing your whole head, comb your hair together, tie it and wrap it in a scarf to prevent it from tangling while you sleep.
Usually, our natural hair oils take longer to travel through curly hair, so you need to keep it moisturised. Thus, rub your product of choice into your hair for two to three minutes before combing.
3. PUMP UP THE VOLUME:
Volume is important with natural hair; you certainly want to keep your natural afro nice and big. Sleeping usually leaves your hair flat, meaning you have to revive the shape in the morning. Hence, divide your hair into four sections and braid those sections. This will help keep your hair’s volume and keep it from getting tangled and hard to comb.
4. WRAP IT UP:
Also wrap your hair in a satin scarf or head wrap when going to bed, so as to help keep in the nutrients and help avoid hair breakage.
5. GET THE CORRECT CARE:
Natural curl makes it difficult for products to travel to the roots, which leads to hair breakage and knots. Besides, the main challenges of natural hair are dealing with breakage and finding the perfect moisturiser that isn’t too heavy and will keep your scalp moisturised. Go for products with natural oils in them such as Shea oil/butter, Moroccan, argan or jojoba oil. These help a lot.
Your natural hair will thank you for adhering to these painless hair care tips![mashshare text="This is my custom share text"]
