One of the major complains we get from a lot of naturalistas is how difficult it is to take care of natural hair. Do you feel the same way? Taking care of natural hair, surely, is different and takes a lot more dedication and consistency. These few outlined tips will make it relatively easier to take care of natural hair.
One of the best things you can do for your hair is to moisturize. To be able to effectively moisturize, you'll need some essential items - something to hydrate, something to soften and something to seal in the moisture. We recommend the Aloe Vera Hair Mist (water-based) or the Anti-Itch Hair and Scalp Spray (oil-based) as a base moisturizer; the Leave in Lotion to soften the hair (which is also water based) and any Pure Oil or Shea Body and Hair Butter. To moisturize, first apply the hair mist or water, then apply the leave in lotion and finally the pure oil or shea body and hair butter.
Detangling in sections
Natural hair getting tangled is a regular occurrence. It's not something to shy away from. The common mistake a lot of naturalistas make is to try to comb it out. What you need to do rather is to detangle hair in sections.
Divide your hair into 4 or 6 sections depending on how thick your hair is. Take a section, moisturize and rake your fingers through the section from the ends of your hair to the roots. Then run a wide tooth comb through the section of hair. Twist each section when done. Repeat the process on each section of hair.
There are a lot of styles out there for you if you have natural hair. The versatility of natural hair makes styling enjoyable. Of course, the usual high-puffs, twists and braids are becoming favourites but have you tried finger coils, comb coils, updos, ponytails and a host of other natural hairstyles. Whenever you're in doubt, just pass by any of the Eya Salon branches.
The kind of hair products you use for your hair plays a major role in the health of your hair. Ideal products for natural hair ought to be water-based. It's non-negotiable. All the range of products from Eya Naturals are water-based to enhance the health of your hair.
