How to Care for Your Natural Hair

Caring for your natural hair is very important and will set you on a path to embracing your natural curls/hair.


To care for your natural hair, you must avoid using harsh products, especially shampoo, that will damage the root of your hair. Here are a few tips on how to care for your natural hair.

Water is as good for your hair as it is good for your body. Use water to detangle hair when combing. Natural hair are prone to knots and tangles and should be detangled only when damp to avoid hair breakage.

The good thing about natural hair is, you do not have to wash every day. However, you still need to adopt a wash-day routine. Use shampoo and leave in conditioner that are sulfate free. It helps add moisture to your hair and is gentle on the scalp.

Natural hair needs lots of oil. They are very essential for ensuring the overall health of your hair. Oils are best applied after your leave-in conditioner. Coconut oil, castor oil, and olive oil helps keep your hair and scalp hydrated.

It is important that you sleep with a silk scarf or hair bonnet. They help to keep your natural hair from tangling, breaking and losing moisture while you sleep.

Lastly, always wear protective hair styles. Allow your hair to breathe and use gentle curling methods.
