5 Natural Hair Care Tips

I have been growing my natural hair for years now, and it has been a rollercoaster. Maintaining natural hair is hard, but it is worth the struggle. My hair is strong, healthy and growing like weed. It looks and feels a lot better than when I used chemicals on it, many years ago. Back then, I was kind of ashamed to show off my natural hair because it didn’t look good at all. I am happy to see those years behind me now.

So how do I care for my natural hair? Here are some natural hair care tips from me to you.

 

Protective Styles

I have my hair in protective styles for about 4/5 weeks. That way the tips are protected and I don’t have to deal with the whole tedious hair management process everyday. I usually have my hair in cornrows, so I can rock different types of wigs. I sometimes go for crotchet braids too.

 

Mositurise the Natural Hair

Natural hair needs air, water and oil to grow. So I make sure my hair is moisturised everyday, even when in protective styles. I have a spray bottle with contains 70% water and 30% almond oil. I apply a few sprays to my hair everyday. When I am not rocking a protective style, I apply a leave in conditioner on a daily basis for extra moisture.

 

Comb Less

One of the good things about rocking a protective style is not having to comb so often. Once my protective style is off, I comb my hair about once a week. I prefer to comb my hair whilst it is damp, so I comb after moisturising generously, starting from the tips, with a wide tooth comb.

Use the Right Hair Care Products

Using the right hair care products is essential. I am so in love with SheaMoisture hair products. The love affair started as soon as I decided to grow my hair natural. I have used a couple of SheaMoisture products, and I am completely sold on most of them. The latest addition to my SheaMoisture collection is the new 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Shampoo and Conditioner. Both products are great for natural hair. I have used them on mine and my daughter’s hair, and the results were amazing.

I wash my hair with SheaMoisture every 2 weeks and it works great for me. Have you tried any SheaMoisture Hair Product? You can shop this new range in Superdrug for £10.99 each.

 

Easy on the Hair Line

I make sure I apply my oil and water to my hair generously. As well as my leave in conditioner. The hair-line is one of the most delicate parts of our hair and it is so easy to lose it. I avoid any hairstyle that would put pressure on my hair-line. I am also very picky on who gets to touch my hair. Some hands are a little too firm on my hair, which causes hair breakage and hair-line loss. I like my hairdresser to handle my hair with care.

If you have read that post, then this product review post should not surprise you. I had an opportunity to review Pearl Drops Lasting Flawless White Toothpaste and Arm & Hammer Total Pro Clean + Repair Toothpaste. Both products are great.

Fashion & Style Police Reviews Shea Moisture

I am a huge fan of Shea Moisture hair products. I have used them for years since I transitioned to natural hair, and the products have been amazing for my hair. So you can imagine my excitement when I got the opportunity to review some Shea Moisture hair products from the Raw Shea and Cupuacu Frizz Defence range.

I have only used Shea Moisture hair products for Dry and Damaged hair because that was where my hair was at 2 years ago. It was extremely unhealthy and looked horrible. But thanks to Shea Moisture and some other great hair products, my hair is not where it used to be. It is growing at a terrific rate and I am looking to all the things I would do with my natural hair soon.
