3 Hair Care Tips For Natural Hair
Natural afro hair is beautiful and versatile, but to keep it looking healthy you need to know the right way to care for it.
While our afro hair care guide covers everything you need to know in detail, here are a few quick tips to help you out.
Develop A Routine
Create a hair washing routine that works around your lifestyle — regularly looking after your hair will make it much easier and enjoyable in the long run. The process is simple: cleanse, moisturise, style, repeat.
Make sure you use sulphate-free shampoo and moisturise your hair right after washing it. This makes it easy to style and prevents breakages. You can use the LOC method to lock in moisture and then style your hair accordingly.
Use The Right Products
As mentioned, using a sulphate-free shampoo and natural moisturiser or cream will help to preserve your hair’s natural oils and not dry out your scalp. We’ve got several products that can help you to look after your natural hair, just check out our Afrocenchix Full Set.
Switch To Protective Styles As Necessary
Some of the styles mentioned above are protective — i.e. they’ll keep your hair safe from the elements and the ends of your hair tucked away.
