The Rules for Beautiful Hair

A woman’s hair is her crown and it needs to be nurtured to look beautiful and healthy. I neglected my hair for many years so I know all about how damaging it is for your hair when the right hair products are not used or when you don’t spend time caring for it. Life happened and I now give my hair the attention and care it needs to thrive. I went naturally a few years ago and I only use natural hair products to nourish my hair. The rules for beautiful hair are similar to those for lovely skin. I will be writing a post showing off how long my hair is now and what my hair routine really looks like.  For now, here is a picture of my current hair length.

The Rules for Beautiful Hair
Keep your hair clean

I wash my hair every 2 weeks. Washing it every week will do my hair more damage than good. How often you should wash your hair depends on your hair type? Wash it as often as you need to keep it clean and healthy.

Stimulate your hair

It is very important to keep your hair stimulated. I do this by massaging hair oils into my scalp every day. This aids hair growth and keeps the scalp healthy.

Moisturise your hair

My hair and scalp are quite dry, so I moisturise twice a day. I have a spray bottle containing water and oils, and I use that twice a day alongside hair oils.

Keep your hair smelling good

The season of sweat is here and if you neglect your hair, it will end up smelling terrible. I love my hair smelling good. My essential oils do the job for me. I sprinkle a few jobs of my favourite essential oils into my spray bottle and that leaves my hair moisturised and smelling divine.

 

Giveaway – WIN Remington S3500 Ceramic Plates Hair Straightener

Happy Friday Peeps! Hope everyone is having a lovely start to the weekend. I have another giveaway for you. This time I am giving away this lovely Remington S3500 Ceramic Plates Hair Straightener. It is a great hair tool to have around especially if you are a busy person. It takes only 15 seconds to reach 230C, and the smart heat ready indicator will light so you know when it is hot enough to use. The slim barrel and extra-long plates design means it can take more hair at once, straight from the roots, with one effortless glide.

This Remington S3500 Ceramic Plates Hair Straightener comes with 10 variable heat settings. These settings enable you select the right temperature to suit your hair type. Another great feature this Hair Straightener has is that if left for 60 minutes, an auto-shut off function will activate. This saves energy and helps prevent accidents from happening.

I have a Remington Hair Straightener and I use quite regularly on my wigs. It has changed my wig game so much. I can’t imagine how I coped prior to having it.

Natural Hair Transition Tips

The regular readers on Fashion and Style Police would know all about my natural hair transition story. I decided to go natural some years ago and although I have not looked back ever since. My hair has gone fully natural now, and although it is not at the length I want it to be, it is getting there.

I picked up some life lessons from my natural hair transition. Here a few tips you may useful.

 

You don’t have to do the big chop

I didn’t go down the big chop route because I wasn’t comfortable cutting my hair. So I decided to transition my relaxed hair, and cut off the relaxed ends gradually. This process took forever but I would do it all over again if I had to. Rocking a very low-cut was not something I was prepared to do. So don’t feel you have to do cut your hair low to go natural.

 

Make time for hair wash day

The process of washing my hair takes hours. I wash my hair every fortnight when I don’t have a protective style on, and I always make sure I block out some hours to get my hair washed properly. If you intend to go natural, you must ensure you have the time to care for your hair. Keeping your scalp clean is very important especially when you are transitioning to natural hair. A dirty scalp would stop new growth from coming in, so hair wash days are super important.

I usually start my hair wash days with an oil treatment. Pink Oil Hair Moisturiser is the current oil treatment I am using. I apply the oil on my hair and leave it under a shower cap for a few hours, while I go about my normal day. Then I wash with SheaMoisture Shampoo and Conditioner. After washing, I apply African Pride Leave-in Conditioner and air dry.

Get rid of all hair chemicals

I got rid of all my relaxers, texturises and all hair chemicals in my bathroom cabinets. And I made room for natural hair products. I have loads of  SheaMoisture hair products because they work amazingly well on my hair. I also make my own hair spray with water and almond oil in a spray bottle and that works great too.

 

Try different protective styles

My hair is always in a protective style. I took off my crotchet braids some weeks and I plan to have my hair in cornrows this weekend. I find it easier to manage my natural hair when it is a protective style. It is best to style the natural hair in various protective styles to retain hair length and keep it healthy.
