Afro hair’s texture is coarser than other hair types, and it is also more prone to frizz and dryness. Consequently, it requires extra attention and care in order to appear smooth. With some right changes to your regime and lifestyle, however, you too can make your hair silky and sleek. Keep reading to find out how:
1. Space Out Hair Washes
Don’t wash your more than 1-2 times a week. Shampoo will strip your hair of its natural oils and cause dryness. Also consider co-washing with a suitable conditioner.
2. Deep Condition Your Hair
Use the MegaGrowth Anti – Breakage Strengthening Deep Conditioner after shampooing your hair to ensure it retains moisture and continues to look soft and supple for days to come.
3. Detangle With Care
Don’t aggressively brush your hair when it is in knots. Part it in sections and use a wide-toothed comb to detangle it slowly and gently.
4. Try Natural Remedies
Apply shea butter or jojoba oil to moisturize your scalp and hair regularly and restore its lost moisture.
5. Protect Hair Overnight
Replace your cotton pillowcases for satin or silk covers to avoid breakage and loss of moisture during the night.
6. Eat Right
Ensure you have a balanced diet so that you can make your hair healthy from the inside out. If your body receives all the right nutrients, your hair will too.
