But what else can you do to take your natural hair care routine to the next level? Here are some additional tips and tricks to help you get the most out of your hair:
There is only one direction to go when developing a natural hair care routine. For starters if you have damaged hair you need to figure out what you could be doing in your hair care routine to cause the damage and discontinue that. You then will need to develop a natural hair care routine that works for your hair. In this template I give you the basics on what is needed to develop a natural hair care routine.
There are many things you should not be doing to your hair when starting your journey. You should reframe from
- using too much heat,
- bleach on the hair,
- tight styles,
- over dryness of the hair,
- sew-in with leave out,
- chemicals and relaxers,
- sleeping without protection
- using products with silicone
Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize One of the most important things you can do for your hair is to keep it moisturized. Natural hair tends to be drier than other hair types, so it's important to give it the moisture it needs to stay healthy and strong. There are a variety of ways to moisturize your hair, from using a leave-in conditioner to applying natural oils like coconut or jojoba oil.
Detangle gently When it comes to detangling natural hair, it's important to be gentle. Use a wide-tooth comb or your fingers to detangle, and start at the ends and work your way up to the roots. Be patient and take your time, as rushing through the process can cause breakage and damage.
Protect your hair at night When you sleep, your hair can get tangled and matted, which can lead to breakage and damage. To protect your hair at night, consider using a silk or satin bonnet or pillowcase. These materials are gentler on your hair and can help prevent tangling and breakage.
Trim regularly Even if you're trying to grow your hair out, it's important to trim it regularly to prevent split ends and breakage. Aim to trim your hair every 6-8 weeks, or as needed depending on your hair's condition.
Try protective styles Protective styles like braids, twists, and buns can help protect your hair from damage and breakage. Just be sure not to wear them too tight, as this can cause tension and damage to your hairline.
By incorporating these tips into your natural hair care routine, you'll be well on your way to achieving healthy, beautiful hair that you can be proud of. Remember, natural hair care is a journey, and it takes time and effort to get the results you want. But with patience, perseverance, and a little bit of know-how, you can achieve the healthy, gorgeous hair you've always dreamed of.
