4 Ways to Care for your Afro Natural Hair
Keep your hair hydrated

The natural hair loves and needs water to thrive. This is why it is so important to keep the hair hydrated everyday. It is easier to do this with a spray bottle. My bottle contains 80% water and 20% oil, and I keep my hair hydrated with this mix. On most days, I spray my hair at least twice and my hair stays moisturised, soft and hydrated. If your natural hair is dry and difficult to manage, you will find it a lot easier to style if you keep it hydrated on a daily basis.

Use protective styles

Most protective styles look great and they also help give your hair a break. The last thing you would want is combing your hair everyday. That puts a lot pressure on the day, which can lead to hair breakage. Having your hair in a protective style allows the hair grow faster. All you need to do is to ensure you are keeping the hair hydrated even while in a protective style.

Only natural products

I personally stay away from products with artificial ingredients. Although most natural products are a lot more expensive than artificial products, natural products are better for my hair. I cannot imagine using artificial products now that I know how harmful they can be to the hair. If possible, opt for only natural products.

No heat

I haven’t used heat on my hair in years and I love how healthy and long my hair is. Excess heat damages the hair. If you have to use heat, do use it sparingly.

Do wear your trainers with a dress and skirts

Wearing your dress with a pair of trainers is one of my favourite looks. There is the classy, chic vibe I get from the look; I love it. Summer is the perfect season to style your trainers with dresses and skirts. You can style your top with a pencil skirt and a low-top trainers for a very summery look. It works all the time but there is an extra line between looking sloppy and stylish when it comes to wearing your trainers right so keep reading.

Don’t style baggy clothes with trainers

I am not a fan of the baggy look with trainers. It looks sloppy and all over the place. If you must wear a baggy piece, you should style the baggy top for example with a pair of skinny jeans or leggings, that way you can show off the trainers beautifully and the look will still look well put together.

Stick to classic looks

If you want to get the most wear out of your trainers, you should spend more on trainers with classic look that would blend easily with the rest of your wardrobe. It is also a great idea to get a couple a bit more over the top for different looks and special occasions if you can.

Provide training

In order to be successful, you must provide thorough training to salespeople based on commission sales strategies. A commission-based sale will only work if “the sales process in your company is established and you can train the sales people to find quality leads and sell your services.” The training should include a thorough review of your product or services as well as an explanation of your customers and what affects them. Also, add an overview of your customers’ previous ways of purchasing.  Sometimes you will find that your workers have come from abroad. In this case, you should encourage training for communication and english and look at what you need to hire them. Such as a ukba sponsor licence application

When you advertise the job, make the resume submission process a test in which you can see if the candidates can follow instructions. Do not make the resume submission process too easy as sending a message directly from the ad. Candidates who do this will disqualify themselves immediately. This will save you a lot of time dealing with higher quality candidates. 

Get to know them well 

If you seriously consider the candidate in front of you, you would expect them to have researched your company. The candidate is prepared, has the answers to your questions and knows what to expect about the company as well as its culture, vision and mission. If you want to hire the best workers possible, study their resumes carefully, visit their online social profiles, assess their technical tests, and more. Get to know their hopes, their wishes and what they want in their career. Get to know how they could help the company and fit into the team. This will help you get the best out of your workers!

Involve employees and check their skills 

The person you are going to hire will have to integrate into a team. You can facilitate the integration of this new employee by involving the teams from the moment of recruitment. Do they like the person you’re thinking of recruiting? It is a way of making our teams more accountable and guaranteeing successful recruitment. In addition, this additional responsibility will strongly motivate the teams.  Another important task is to thoroughly check their skills. You want to be sure that you have hired the right person. Before recruiting a candidate, it is therefore important to check their statements from the start to ensure that we have given our trust to the right person. Look at their LinkedIn profile and also their references.
