3 Hair Care Tips For Natural Hair
Natural afro hair is beautiful and versatile, but in order to keep it looking healthy, you must know how to care for it properly.
While our afro hair care guide goes into great detail, here are a few quick tips to get you started.
1. Develop A Routine
Create a hair washing routine that fits your lifestyle — taking care of your hair on a regular basis will make it much easier and more enjoyable in the long run. The steps are straightforward: cleanse, moisturize, style, and repeat.
Use sulfate-free shampoo and moisturize your hair immediately after washing it. This makes styling easier and prevents breakage. You can use the LOC method to lock in moisture before styling your hair.
2. Use The Right Products
As previously stated, using a sulfate-free shampoo and natural moisturiser or cream will help to preserve the natural oils in your hair while not drying out your scalp.
3. Switch To Protective Styles As Necessary
Some of the styles mentioned here are protective — i.e. they’ll keep your hair safe from the elements and the ends of your hair tucked away.
