Louisa is going to give her 10 hair care tips every natural should know:
#1. Rinsing off your conditioner with cold water
Warm water causes hair to frizz a little as the cuticles open up.
To stop frizziness, rinse conditioner out with cool water. This tames frizziness, increases shininess and locks in moisture by flattening the hair cuticle.
#2. Wet twist
If you have a problem with taking your twists out before it dries, get rid of the excess water by using a paper towel. Lightly squeeze your twist as you work your way down. Paper towels don’t suck out all the moisture like regular towels do, so it’s definitely a good option.
#3 Co-wash if you need to wash your hair more than once a week
If you feel like you need a more regular wash, add one or two extra washes a week using only conditioner and no shampoo, this is called co-washing.
#4 The longer your hair gets the less often you need to wash it
Short hair is more welcoming and forgiving of regular washes, as it doesn’t tangle so easily.
#5 Spritz with water regularly
Kinky/curly hair is very vulnerable to dryness; it can lose a lot of moisture even in a day. Water is best for natural hair.
#6 Use essential oils to maximize hair growth
Essential oils are highly potent, naturally derived oils that are documented as having active properties.
#7 Massage your scalp regularly
Massaging the scalp encourages blood to flow to it. Blood brings with it all the nutrients needed for hair growth and Health.
Let it grow – Hot Oil Treatment can be applied directly to the hair because the essential oils sit in a base of Sweet Almond and Vitamin E Oil; it can also be used for scalp massage. It is available on eBay, Amazon and Afro Hair Solutions
#8 Mix gel and moisturizer
For more defined frizz free curls, mix a little gel with your hair moisturizer and scrunch this mixture down your hair by lightly squeezing.
Gel helps to set the style and the moisturizer will smooth the hair down blocking moisture from frizzing your hair.
#9 Use Apple Cider Vinegar
Use apple cider vinegar dilute with water in the shower to detangle your hair. It is easy to get the comb through, without much pain at all.
#10 Jojoba Oil
Use Jojoba Oil when sealing your hair, as it is similar to the oils we produce. This oil is great because it’s not greasy or heavy on your hair.
That’s all, I hope you enjoyed my tips and thank you very much for reading this blog post.
