Dry hair can end up looking damaged and lifeless. Infusing life into it then is a whole new ball game altogether! We are telling you that damage control is as simple as these five hair hacks that are super effective and easy; with no extra steps to your regular hair regimen.
A deep conditioning mask such as African Pride Argan Miracle Deep Conditioning Masque works for most hair types – curly, kinky or ziggly textured! Follow this hack for dry hair at least once a week to keep your hair shafts hydrated enough. To ensure extra-conditioning, apply the mask, tie your hair loosely and then cover it with a shower cap. This will intensify the treatment. Leave it on for 5 minutes as you finish up with the rest of your shower routine.
The best way to tackle dryness is to limit or lay off the use of heated tools for a bit. Try styles that require zero heat.
We have learnt how to work some hairstyles using nothing but serum in your hair post your shower and have grown to love the look and feel of the result. We are fans of Dr.Miracle’s Curl Care Frizz Control Serum for the light weighted-ness and natural movement that it gives to the hair. Brownie points for that great fragrance too!
Ok…Moving on from Dr.Miracle’s Curl Care Frizz Control Serum, if a more stylized, long-lasting look is what you’re going for, grab a bottle of African Pride Olive Miracle Silky Smooth Edges Hair Gel – you will only need little more than a coin/dime-sized amount to work medium length hair. Enough to give your hair the stronghold it needs.
Braiding your hair is yet another option – all of it together as one thick ponytail or into many thin braids – depending on the bigger or thinner curls you’d like once unbraided. Leave the braids overnight or for a couple of hours, letting them dry naturally and oh-so-beautifully!
May we say that, detangling is an acquired skill and using the wrong tools can spell damage with a capital D! So if you are not using a 100% wooden comb to remove tangles and a 100% wooden brush with boar bristles to brush out your mane, Switch NOW! These tools are gentle on your hair, tugging on to it a lot less, leaving them feeling smooth. Brushing your hair regularly is also great for dry hair, as it helps distribute your natural oils onto the rest of your hair. Check out these top products for dry natural hair.
If you have to succumb to a blow dry, wait until your hair is 80% dry. This will cause less damage and keep your hair styled and smoother for longer. Implement this dry hair hack everytime you blow dry and see amazing results. Learn how to get the perfect blowout on natural hair.
Make that blow out last by pumping a tiny amount of hair oil onto your hairbrush and then brushing out your hair. Avoid your roots of course! We think Dr.Miracle’s Gro Oil is great as it’s not too heavy on the hair.
