1: Wash your hair.. Yes wash your hair every 2 weeks. As, a natural black girl we use tons of products on our hair. Which can lead up to product build up and dirty hair. Be sure to use sulfate free shampoos and to condition your hair. Some good natural hair brands are creme of nature, cantu and kera care. Be sure to condition your hair and let it air dry. Stay away from heat! If you prefer to blow dry your hair instead be sure to use a blow dryer hair attachment comb with heat protection spray to detangle your hair.
2: De-tangle your hair once a week. Because, our hair is kinky it is easy for our hair strands to get tangled against one another which can cause hair to matt, dread and even break off.
3: Condition your hair 2-3 times a week. Make your hair stays moistured and healthy. Dry hair leads to brittle hair and than you will have to cut your hair overall.
4: Get trims every 3-4 months. It is very easy to forget to care for your ends…. this will cause slit ends and your hair will break off eventually and it will never grow if your ends arent healthy. Always get your ends checked out by your trusted hair stylist to etend growth and maintain healthy hair.
5: Be sure to sleep with a satin scarf/bonnet every night as well as satin pillow cover cases. Regular pillow cases can cause damange to your hair especially your ends and cause it to break off due to you move around at night and your hair being pulled.
