Kinks and coils can demand your full attention. Believe it or not, your hair is special and that calls for special care and attention. Whether you’re on the lookout for hair products that are best suited for your scalp, hair type and texture or you’re still waiting on results from the hair routine you currently follow, read on to increase your knowledge about Afro specific hair products. After all your hair deserves the best!
If gorgeous hair is what you’re going for, never ever skip pre-poo. In simple words, pre-poo is an oiling treatment applied to the hair before shampooing. A good pre-poo treatment will protect and retain the natural oils from your scalp during your shampoo. This will not only make detangling a joy but also quench your hair’s need for moisture. Sounds amazing right? It takes all of 20 minutes before your regular shampoo routine Divide your hair into four sections and pre-poo it with coconut oil, jojoba oil or olive oil depending on what suits your hair best. Rinse it out then and proceed to shampoo.
It’s a well-known fact that sulphate-free shampoos help preserve your hair’s natural oils whilst gently cleansing any product build up over the week. Depending upon how greasy your hair gets and how it responds to shampoo, we suggest you shampoo your hair every 7 – 10 days. We love ProfectiV Mega Growth Stimulating Shampoo. It works superbly to eliminate any build-up from hair sprays and gels, It soothes the scalp and also stimulates the hair follicles.
Quality time spent to condition your hair can make a world of a difference! 4A hair can do with a good moisture lock in with African Pride Shea Miracle Moisture Intense Leave-In Conditioner Be sure to deep condition at least once a week. 4B and 4C hair need conditioners that will not only hydrate the hair but also fight shrinkage and give your curls some great definition. 4B and 4C naturalistas, we urge you to spend more time deep conditioning with products like MegaGrowth Deep Conditioner to promote hair growth and repair your hair from any stress and damage.
Anything can flourish with love and care and so can natural hair. So don’t fret over-styling your hair regularly. We recommend that you invest in a good hair gel like African Pride Olive Miracle Silky Smooth Edges Hair Gel, which is a lightweight product that won’t weigh your hair down. It allows you to style as desired without any fear of damage. We love it because it’s enriched with olive oil to moisturize the hair and does not contain chemicals from alcohol or petroleum that is needed for a slicked hair look. Whilst we advise you to limit the use of heated tools, should you have to succumb to some serious styling, make sure you prep your hair with a heat protectant. Also, use hairspray in moderation to limit the effect of chemicals.
The styling possibilities with natural hair are limitless. So bring on the protective styling with braids. Finish your final look with African Pride Olive Miracle Braid Sheen Spray that gives your braid the much-needed moisture and shine. It also tackles dry ends and any stubborn loose strands. Take care of your hair though and avoid an itchy and flaky scalp. Cleanse your scalp regularly using a micro-fibre cloth dipped in warm water.
