Everything listed below is from personal experience, trial & error and my very own opinion. Although, I wish I knew all the answers or even where to find all the answers but sadly I don’t :( It’s okay! Here’s a couple natural hair care tricks, tips & hacks to a healthy hair journey 🧚🏽♀️💕✨
Deep-condition your hair.
One of our top natural hair care tips is to incorporate a deep conditioner or mask into your weekly regimen. Using a deep conditioning treatment helps hydrate dry hair and encourages a smooth, frizz-free texture.
Apply more conditioner to the ends of your hair.
Concentrate more conditioner on the ends of your hair on wash day because they are the oldest and weakest part.
Use a plastic bag if you don’t have a shower cap.
You can also go ahead and tie a head wrap above the plastic bag for extra heat.
Do a cold water rinse to close your cuticles after deep conditioning.
Replace your towel with a T-shirt to squeeze out excess water
from hair after rinsing. A t-shirt is not as abrasive as towels.
Use leave-in conditioners.
Natural hair tends to be on the dryer side, emphasizing the need for moisture and proper hydration.
Moisturize & Seal
Continuing the process, applying product to your hair while it’s still damp is the most effective way to retain moisture. Use a leave-conditioner with your choice of styler, along with an organ hair oil to seal in moisture, to keep your hair healthy, soft, and manageable.
Massage Your Scalp
A soothing scalp massage every few nights will help stimulate the hair follicles and help with blood flow to the scalp to encourage healthy growth.
Protect hair at night.
Even your strands need some rest. At night, use a silk scarf or sleep on a silk pillowcase. This helps protect your locks from breakage. Silk also helps you retain moisture in your hair while you sleep and minimizes friction against the hair strand!
Feed Your Hair
This can’t be stressed enough: healthy hair starts from within. We’re not saying you have to become vegan, but you should include healthy fruits and veggies in your diet and drink lots of water. If you’re someone who has a hard time with vegetables, blending up a fruit and veggie smoothie is an easy and tasty way to get your daily dose. This will give your hair follicles the nutrients needed to help your strands thrive.
Handle your hair in sections.
Always handle your hair in sections, that way, all parts of your hair will be equally cared for.
This is easier said than done, but the best thing you can do for your hair is to simply relax. Whether it’s worrying about your hair length or anything else, stress will often show up in our skin as well as our hair. So try to reduce your stress as much as possible.
Wear Protective Styles
Tucking your hair away in styles that require little to no manipulation for a few days or a few months will help you retain length.
A vitamin supplement can really help strengthen your overall hair health.
If your hair is not growing, it could be because you are lacking essential vitamins in your diet. Add a daily vitamin-supplement like
to your diet to fill in whatever nutrients you might be lacking and promote healthy hair growth.
It takes less than 5 minutes to book your appointment! Get closer to healthy hair. You’re only one step away from not only bring educated about your own hair but also growing your hair to it’s full potential. The healthy & natural way!
