How to Start Caring For Your Natural Hair


To start off, it is important to create a routine. Similar to how you have a life routine of what you do each day. For hair, you can create one like for example let say you wash your hair every week. Then when you do so, shampoo to wash scalp and hair, deep condition to nourish your hair, Moisturize your hair after and then style. Then once a month, you can do a protein treatment. During the week, Moisturize your hair regularly. This video talks more about creating a routine: https://youtu.be/rTniJGM-LAA




Now, let us break it down into small parts.
SHAMPOOING

When it comes to washing your hair, there are different things you can use but I will keep it simple for you. The best shampoo for natural hair is a sulfate free shampoo. This type does not contain ingredients with the word sulfate in it. It also does not strip your natural hair oils and cause hair and scalp to be dry . Dry hair breaks.

After shampooing your hair, it is important to deep condition your hair. This gives the hair nutrients and also helps soften it. Here are some recommendations https://amzn.to/2nICeep
