We bet that thick, long and luscious hair was the way of the day up until your little bundle arrived. But oh how we wish that our mane-story continued its way into post-partum too. During pregnancy, the rising levels of estrogen in your body is the reason for your glowing skin as well as super shiny and thick hair. Post pregnancy, one can see noticeable shedding of hair, loss of shine and dryness. But don’t give up hope mommies! Those sleepless nights needn’t show on your face and definitely not on your hair. Read on to know postpartum hair treatment for dry curls.
Be gentle with your mane and avoid using any products with chemicals in your hair post pregnancy. Try to steer clear from colouring your hair too often or using too much heat on your hair as it can affect its overall health. Colouring and heat styling tools, both cause the hair to dry out and turn brittle. Even when styling, make sure you use a heat protectant such as African Pride Black Castor Miracle Anti-Humidity Heat Protectant Spray. It is enriched with the benefits of castor oil and so is your best bet to prevent hair damage.
You may have noticed how many mothers ditch their long tresses and go short. Not only is it super practical but also requires minimal hair care. Avoid going in for weaves and hairstyles like cornrows that may tug on your hair and scalp. This, could lead hair loss as well as dry, dull hair. Styles will also demand more care and attention and who can do with a baby around?
Going short is not boring at all and will also reduce the appearance of dull hair. How about a TWA? It is low on maintenance and super stylish.
Try changing your hair care regimen by maybe going in for. The LOC method. You’ll need a deep moisturizing formula Such as the African Pride Moisture Miracle Honey, Chocolate & Coconut Oil Conditioner for the moisture to penetrate into your hair strands. See it works wonders!
Remember, the gentler the better. Try to be as loving with your hair as possible. Do not use harsh brushes. Also detangling your hair when wet is an absolute no-no.
Lastly, it is very important to eat healthy. Make sure you eat foods good for your hair – eggs, salmon and nuts are an excellent source of protein. Fruits, veggies and whole grains are rich sources of vitamins and minerals that are essential for hair health. Your doctor may even prescribe nutritional supplements to promote hair growth. Drinking plenty of water and keeping hydrated is another must.
Moderate exercising and head massages will help blood flow to the head.
