5 Best Ways On How To Care For Natural Hair Daily
Your natural hair is delicate and needs care, these 5 tips will help you get starting with your natural hair care game in no time!
You may practice some weekly than daily but they are super important and I had to mention them!
1. YOUR HAIR NEEDS MOISTURE!
No matter your hair type your hair needs to be kept moisturized. Learning how to moisturize and seal your natural hair will do you just right!
The kinks and coils of our curls prevent the distribution of sebum (the natural oil produced by your scalp) throughout your hair.
This allows your natural hair to dry out faster than other curl patterns (not fair right?!) so you need to take extra precautions to keep your hair moisturized.
Start by finding a good moisturizer and a good sealant.
Oils like coconut oil and olive oil and creams like Shea butter are super effective at sealing moisture in your hair.
Even with a protective style, don’t forget to moisturize regularly!
People often load their dry hair with lots of oils and creams, thinking that this alone will solve the problem.
Nope, their hair often becomes drier and tacky to the touch because the products are unable to penetrate it.
That is why water is key to opening the hair cuticle, so make sure that your hair is damp prior to adding product.
Another thing to do is have a spray bottle which is convenient for this purpose and is also great for refreshing old styles.
By adding this simple routine into your regimen will garner results and will lead to softer, shinier hair over time.
2. DID YOU DETANGLE WELL?
Yep, tangles lead to breakage, which hinders growth (and nobody wants that).
Detangle regularly and gently, using a wide-toothed comb on damp hair (don’t use a brush girl!)
Instead, use conditioners to add slip and help with the process.
When you find tiny knots, don’t yank- use your fingers to gently pull hairs out of the knot.
When it comes to detangling, water is a must.
Why? Due to the unique coiled structure of natural hair, it is very prone to tangles and knots.
Many natural will often attempt to comb through hair that is dry and knotted (I’ve done that before, you?!), increasing not only their frustration but also the tangles.
This will only result in disaster and should be avoided.
Once your hair is damp you can also apply a generous amount of conditioner to your strands.
Allow it to sit for a few minutes so that your hair can absorb the products.
This will provide what is known as “slip”, as it helps your fingers or comb glide through your hair strands.
3. DEEP CONDITION IS YOUR SECRET WEAPON!
It is recommended to deep condition every 2 weeks, but depending on your hair type you should do that more or less.
If you have 4c hair type, in particular, it thrives with weekly deep conditioning treatments. This will keep your hair healthy, bouncy, and shiny, and will prevent snagging and tangles.
4. REGULAR TRIMS AND THANK ME LATER!
When trying to grow your hair, it seems like a no-no to cut it.
However, this is necessary—especially with natural hair, which is prone to dryness and knots.
Over time, ends become old and damaged (I’ve gone through that and I am even planning a trim as we read).
They easily break, creating a cycle in which hair is growing from the scalp at the same rate that it is breaking from the ends—leading to very slow length retention and progress.
You should always use hair shears when trimming your hair because regular scissors can cause further split ends and damage.
By trimming your ends every three to six months, you will be removing damaged strands and making room for new, healthy hair.
What is a sign your hair needs a trim?
Dry and rough ends which makes it difficult in styling and detangling.
Natural hair can be tricky to trim because of shrinkage.
It can shrink to 50-80% of its true length, making it difficult to know how much hair you are cutting.
In this case, some naturals choose to stretch their hair—either with heat or through other means—prior to trimming.
If you dont want to use heat to stretch your hair do this:
Instead of trimming, you can remove less hair by two-strand twisting your hair in sections and only cutting off the very ends of the twists.
This is known as “dusting”. your hair
Another method you can try, known as “Search and Destroy”, involves seeking out specific strands that have damaged ends and trim trimming them as they come.
This method seems more convenient, in the long run, it can be tedious and lead to uneven hair if not done carefully.
Whatever method you choose, remember not to sacrifice hair health for length which many of us do but in the long run, end up getting a trim!
5. FIND A ROUTINE THAT WORKS GREAT FOR YOU!
All of this can be time-consuming. Pre-pooing, cleansing, conditioning, deep-conditioning, detangling, moisturizing, and styling can leave you exhausted.
The best advice is to keep things as simple as possible. Don’t go out and buy a bunch of products or begin a daunting and grueling routine.
Maintaining natural hair takes a lot of trial and error, but practice makes perfect. Take things one step at a time.
After finding out what’s your hair texture, thickness, and porosity, slowly figure out which methods and products work best for you.
From there, make sure to have fun with your natural hair.
Natural hair is beautiful and incredibly versatile. Its diverse textures allow it to take on many different styles—all on the same head.
If you are looking for a stretched style, rock straightened or blown out tresses (just make sure that you use proper heat techniques and heat protectant).
You can also try braid outs, twist outs, or even afro if you are interested in showing off your unique curls and coils!
Protective styles such as braids, twists, and buns are great if you would like to maintain and grow your hair.
These styles protect fragile ends, preventing them from breaking and thus contributing to healthier, stronger, and longer hair.
You should always remember that caring for natural hair is a journey. As your knowledge deepens, you will find new and better ways to maintain your hair.
Just relax and enjoy the process.
