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.

Improve Your Smile in 4 Steps

Mouths are one of the most prominent facial features, but many people don’t give their mouths the attention they deserve. While most people brush their teeth twice daily, their dental care does not extend much further than this. Considering how much work our mouths do every day, it only seems right that they get a little extra care and attention.

One of the main things that most people would like to improve their appearance is their smile. Maybe you have always wanted to have perfect, white teeth like your favourite celebrities. If so, it is essential to pay close attention to your dental routine and focus on improving your smile. Having a perfect smile will light up your whole face and make you feel far more confident. Here are four ways that you can improve your smile and enjoy the feeling of confidence that comes with it:

  1. Brush, Floss, and Rinse

How often do you give your teeth a short brush before heading to bed? For most people, this frequently is the case. To keep your teeth healthy in the long term, you need to carry out a thorough dental care routine each day to prevent gum disease and plaque build-up. Making sure that you floss every night is crucial. Brushing your teeth and rinsing with mouthwash twice a day will also help to protect your teeth.

2. Straighten Your Teeth

Having crooked teeth can make you feel self-conscious about your smile and reluctant to share it with the world. Straightening your teeth can put an end to these concerns and give you the confidence to smile more. As an adult, clear braces are the perfect option to align your teeth and perfect your smile without everyone seeing that you are wearing them. This discreet option is an effective way to straighten your teeth and achieve a noticeable improvement.

3. Don’t Skip Dental Check-Ups

Once your teeth are looking good, the last thing you want is a dental problem to ruin your hard work. To keep any potential problems at bay, it is vital to visit your dentist for regular check-ups. Spotting dental issues fast makes it easier for them to be treated successfully without the need for invasive dental work.

Your dentist will advise you on areas of your dental care routine that you need to focus on. If you like the idea of having whiter teeth, then having your teeth deep-cleaned by the hygienist at your dental surgery can help.

4. Look After Your Lips

Your lips can become chapped and dry if they are not well cared for, which can not only affect the appearance of your smile but can make it pretty uncomfortable too. If your lips are prone to becoming dry and sore, it is helpful to use a lip scrub and to apply lip balm each day to protect them from the elements. In the summer months, you may also find it beneficial to wear an SPF on your lips to protect them from potential sun damage.
