When I first started my hair journey, there was a lot of information to take in. These are just a few things I’ve picked up along the way, so if you want healthier hair then here are 10 tips to get you started.
Keep Your Hair Hydrated
Dry hair breaks more easily so make sure you moisturise & seal your hair daily & deep condition weekly
Protein strengthens your hair & reduces the risk of breakage
Low manipulation styles
Over manipulating your hair can cause breakage, try to rock styles that don’t require combs & protective style where possible
Use minimal heat
Air dry & stay away from heating tools to reduce the risk of your hair becoming dry
Baby your hair
Especially your ends & finger comb where possible, starting from the ends and working your way up
With relaxed hair, the weakest area is the line of demarcation, so be sure to handle with care!
Regular scalp massages
Use your favourite oil & massage your scalp with your fingertips to stimulate blood flow
Cleanse your hair
Clarify shampoo regularly to get rid of product build up
Eat healthily & stay hydrated
You are what you eat, put the right things into your body and reap the benefits & make sure you drink at least 2 litres of water a day
Choose health over length
Don’t hold on to thin ends or split ends
Protect your hair at night
Sleep with a silk/satin headscarf or bonnet or a silk/satin pillowcase as cotton dries out your hair
So what are you waiting for? Start by making one change at a time and see your hair go from strength to strength.
