Rome wasn’t built in a day and same is the case with those luscious and healthy curls. They need special love and care. Frizziness, brittleness, breakage, split ends and weak roots can head out for good, if you follow these easy steps to protect your natural hair.
1. Condition Deeply
Give your hair the moisture it deserves. It is the best you can do for them. Deep conditioning once a week will prevent your natural hair from breakage and lock in the moisture. And remember, you can never deep condition excessively. Your hair will soak it all up.
2. Refresh Your Hair
Those thirsty roots ain’t gonna wait. Keep refreshing your hair by spraying water on your tresses regularly. If your roots are too impatient, try spraying moisturizer to calm them down. Moisturizing your natural hair daily, after your hair shower will show you amazing results.
3. Optimize Protective Styling
Styling is inevitable but adding protection to it can preserve your crown. We know you love to see your curls in the mirror but shielding them at regular time intervals is beneficial in the long run. But don’t overdo it. It will strain your edges and make them weaker.
4. Oil For Nourishment
An underrated practice in hair care, oiling nourishes your curls with proteins and minerals. For instance, our favourite castor oil retains the already present moisture, reduces frizz and improves scalp circulation. After all, healthy natural hair is gorgeous hair!
5. Smooth Night Care
Your hair must sleep comfortably at night too! This becomes coherent with the scarf you need to put on before getting to bed. Snug in a satin scarf onto your natural hair and it will not let your strands dry out overnight and guard them against friction, too.
6. Escape the Heat
Farewell flat irons! They no longer need to be a constant when you are serious about caring for your natural hair. These heat treatments make the already vulnerable hair, brittle and cause excessive breakage. If you can’t resist it totally, reduce the frequency and intensity of its use.
