Embrace the chop!
The big chop is a HUGE deal for many, and it certainly isn’t an easy decision to make. Aisha O’ Reilly, the founder of the blog, Aisha and Life, is one of our favourite naturalistas and we always look to her for some serious hair inspo. Like many African women, this beauty too had quite the complicated relationship with her hair and ultimately sought refuge by going in for the big chop. Now with a great hair routine in place, she’s been slaying it with her kinks and coils!
A great routine after the big chop can do wonders for your natural hair’s texture. By adopting these 3 habits after your big chop, you too can kill the natural hair game sistah! You might as well, write this down.
Natural hair requires a different routine than relaxed hair. The products you will need to maintain your hair are quite different. As a general rule, we recommend washing your hair not more than once a week in sections. Experimenting with jojoba oil, castor oil and coconut oil will determine what works best for your hair.
If natural hair is not paid attention to, the dryness can lead to breakage, split ends and ultimately, even hair loss. It is impossible to retain length or achieve hair growth with dry hair. In order to combat this, pamper your kinks and coils with hydration and moisture. The LOC method i.e. liquid, oil and conditioner is a great way to add moisture to your hair daily and many naturalistas, including Aisha swear by it. We’ve tried the above routine using ProfectiV Mega Growth Deep Conditioner and can ascertain that it has worked wonders!
We all know good hair is a result of a good hair routine. Investing in a good silk or satin pillowcase should be a top priority for every girl who wants healthy and bouncy curls. Moisture is of key importance for hair and sleeping on a cotton pillowcase will only rob your hair of the precious moisture whereas a satin pillowcase will help retain the moisture.
And since we all agree that no hair care routine is complete without frequent deep conditioning, you should probably check out How To Deep Condition African Hair to make sure you’re doing this right!
