Beautiful hair speaks volumes about your personality and style. However when it comes to natural hair, the journey is not a walk over and like the old saying goes only experience can teach you these hustles. Natural hair demands quite the devotion and love for your hair.
You must be able to avoid a lot of things like exposing your hair to too much heat, detecting scalp drying ingredients on product labels to entangling without pulling out balls of your hair. You must be able and willing to leave behind chemical relaxers and heat-styling tools to sport your natural hair.
1.A nutritious diet is very vital in maintaining healthy natural hair, drink lots of water and ensure to include proteins in your diet. Vitamin A is also crucial for hair growth, add leafy vegetables to your diet.
2.Keep your scalp clean and free of oil, shampoo your scalp, not your roots. Avoid exposing it to dirt and dust but if you do be sure to wash your scalp but not daily. Healthy hair washing intervals vary from3days to one week.
3.When styling avoid using too much product as your hair ends up looking greasy or weighed down, so we end up washing our hair too frequently which just dries it out.
4.When it comes to hair products and ingredients for natural hair, you need incredibly moisturizing products that strengthen hair. Olive oil, monoi oil, shea butter, cocoa butter are perfect for this purpose.
5.Avoid using hot water to wash your hair because it damages the hair tips, use cold or lukewarm water. Towel-dry your hair before applying conditioner.
6.Brush your hair twice a day, from the bottom up
7.Try castor oil, hair oil and dry shampoo.
8.You need a leave-in to ensure your hair stays super hydrated.
9.Use a shampoo and conditioner that suits your hair type.
10.Get a peaceful regular sleep because your hair reflects what you’re going through.
Above all it is important nurture a stress-free optimistic and positive attitude in your everyday life because our physical and psychological conditions affect our appearances.
