The most common question I get about this hair of mine: “how do you keep it so healthy?” The answers: moisturizer (usually butter. More water-based products encourage shrinkage, which causes tangles for me. I also never let my hair dry un-stretched)• low manipulation (and I only comb wet, gently while detangling)• no direct heat (occasionally a low-setting blow dry before taking a twist-out down)• no color (I used to be a dye junkie, but I’m just not willing to risk the damage right now). That’s really it. And multi-vitamins that I don’t take often enough.
