Stressed tresses do bite back too! Split ends, hair breakage and daily hair fall are all signs of damage. Even if your breakage is serious, you can stop it and turn it around with the right treatments and proper hair care techniques. Oh yes, you can!
1. Wear More. Wash Less.
African American hair is comparatively drier than other hair types. Frequent washing robs your hair of the natural moisture that the scalp produces. Dry hair is more prone to breakage and split ends. We recommend washing your hair every 7 – 10 days with mild shampoos. It gently cleanses excessive product build-up without sucking out the moisture.
2. Don’t Neglect
Look at the damage done from years of neglect. The good news is that it is still reversible and although it will take time and patience, you can bounce back to your healthy hair. Trim your hair regularly to get rid of the split ends. Don’t wear braids for more than 8 weeks. Small tips make a world of a difference, girl!
3. Show Some TLC
Who doesn’t love the extra dose of pampering? We bet you do and so does your hair! Show your hair some TLC by regularly opting for deep conditioning treatments or leave-in conditioners. They not only help in sealing the moisture in but also penetrate deep within, giving you strong hair roots. Try the Dr.Miracle’s Regular Deep Hair Conditionerfor best results.
4. Naturalistas Are Your BFF’s
More and more women are becoming aware of the long-term benefits of going natural and are finally becoming naturalists. But hey, that doesn’t have to be boring! You can still look pretty chic with braids, cornrows and twist your natural hair into something fancy. And if you still need help, you can always turn to wigs and weaves!
5. Go Easy With The Tools
True love is not tool love! Your hair is already very fragile, over brushing the hair will only make your roots weak and result in split ends. Even your favourite flat irons and blow-dryers damage your hair. Limit the use of heated tools. We recommend air drying your hair or using a micro-fiber towel.
