How I moisturise my natural hair

*Affiliate links.

I transitioned from texturised hair to natural hair about 5 years ago, and I have no regrets. My hair is strong and healthy, and I love how it looks. When I had texturised hair, my hair was horrible. I had no edges and my hair was breaking a lot. It was so weak and unhealthy, and I couldn’t stand the sight of it anymore. I was tired on hiding it underneath hair extensions that only made my hair condition worse, so I decided to embark on the long road to freedom – natural hair route.

The journey has been long and hard but so worth it. It took me a long time to figure out hair products that worked great for my coarse hair. I tried all sorts of products and I am still trying new products regularly. In my search of trying out new products, I came across the amazing Naissance Fractionated Coconut Oil, Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Leave in Conditioning Cream and some great Sheamoisture Hair Care products. I use SheaMoisture Shampoo, Conditioner and Hair Masquwe every 2 weeks and these products help create the right foundation for the rest of my hair care products. 

Before stumbling on these products, I have used lots of shampoos, conditioners, masques, oils and leave in conditioners. But my current hair care products mentioned above are the best for my hair type. They are so good for natural hair protective hairstyles too!

You can watch me in the video use Naissance Fractionated Coconut Oil and  Cantu Shea Butter for Natural Hair Leave in Conditioning Cream. These products help me moisturise my natural hair beautifully, making it soft and manageable. They also help my hair grow and stay healthy. I can’t see myself ever not using this oil and leave in conditioner. They are the best hair products I have tried in a long time. Do watch the video and tell me what you think of these haircare products and how I moisturise my natural hair.  You can follow my YouTube Channel for more updates.

How to avoid getting blackheads

Blackheads are a pain to deal with. Most of us have had our own fair share of dealing with this annoying skincare issue. Some of us have never had to deal with blackheads, and that is amazing. It is easier to avoid getting blackheads than getting rid of them. So if you have never had blackheads before, that’s great! You are definitely doing something right or just blessed with amazing skin.

Blackheads are a form of acne. They appear when the skin pores become clogged with a combination of dead skin cells and excess oil (sebum) from your sebaceous glands. If you are worried about having blackheads, then you may find these tips on how to avoid getting them useful.

How to avoid getting blackheads

Blackheads are frustrating to get rid off. It is a lot easier to avoid getting them to begin with. Here are ways you could avoid getting blackheads –

Avoid products that encourage sebum production

Many skincare products can encourage excessive sebum production which can cause blackheads, so it is best to avoid these kind of products. Skincare products with ingredients like alcohol, peppermint, menthol, lemon, lime or eucalyptus, are the main culprits, so it is best to stay away from products that include any of them.

You need to check and be happy with every ingredient in your skincare product before you use it. That way you are sure the skincare product is right for your skin.

 

Do not scrub

Scrubbing your face could lead to many skin issues include blackheads. So it is best to avoid using a sponge o  your face. If you must use a sponge, you should opt for a very soft sponge or face cloth.

Also, many people believe blackheads/whiteheads and other skin issues can be scrubbed away and this so not true. Blackheads are too deep in the pores, which is why they can not be scrubbed away. Scrubbing would only irritate the skin further.

 

Use a clay mask

I use a clay mask every week and I love how it leaves my skin looking smooth and supple. Using a clay mask every week does wonders for the skin. It is a great way of ensuring your skin stays healthy and beautiful.

Clay masks work by retrieving dirt and oil from the pores, which removes clogged pores, that can cause blackheads. Using a clay mask on a weekly basis is an amazing ways to nourish your skin.

Wipe the makeup off

Make sure you wipe off every trace of makeup before you sleep. Leaving makeup on overnight can clog your pores and cause blackheads. Which is why it is so important to wipe the makeup off with a makeup remover and cleanser before you fall asleep. You should never go to bed wearing makeup.

 

Use a light moisturiser

Using a light moisturiser helps if your skin is prone to acne. You should also check your sunscreen is a light version too so your pores don’t get clogged.
