Apart from visiting the salon, what do we do at home to take care of our hair? For most of us, there's no hair care regimen we align with. For others, the occasional application of shea butter is enough. The truth is, how we take care of our hair at home plays a major role in how healthy it becomes. Don't get it wrong, visiting the salon is great but hair care doesn't end there. Here are some hair care practices you should be doing in between salon visits.
Taking care of your edges
Often forgotten about is 'edge care'. Considering the kind of hairstyles we usually install, particularly braids, cornrows, etc, taking care of our edges should be a priority. To start with, stop installing tight hairstyles. Now that that's out of the way, keep your edges moisturized and protected at all times.
Spray a little bit of water or the Aloe Vera Hair Mist on your edges, massage it gently and apply either the Hair Growth Oil or Castor Oil as well. Gently massage the area for about 2 minutes and use a soft brush afterwards.
If you don't do anything at all to your hair after visiting the salon, moisturize it. Most of us are guilty of ignoring our hair especially in braids or cornrows for wigs, twists and other hairstyles. If we keep ignoring our hair, how do you expect it to be healthy?
Natural hair by its nature needs a lot of moisture to be healthy. Moisturizing is therefore non-negotiable. To start off, spray your hair with water or the Anti Itch Hair and Scalp Spray. Massage it into your hair and scalp. You can end there or add any hair oils particularly if you're in braids or cornrows. If your hair is in its afro state, apply Leave in Lotion just after hydrating your hair and seal in the moisture with any hair oils.
Detangling properly is one of the major keys to retaining length. If you've been complaining of how you aren't noticing any growth lately, you might want to take a second look at how you detangle.
To detangle properly, make sure your hair is damp. Do not detangle on dry hair under any circumstance. Put your hair into sections and use your fingers to detangle. Then use a wide tooth comb to gently detangle from the ends of your hair to the roots.
Have fun with your hair. Learn a few styling tips and tricks and try them out. Even if you're not good at styling, try it out. Who knows? You might come up with your unique style.
Once again, taking care of your hair doesn't start or end at the hair salon. What you do at home with your hair equally matters. For further hair consultation, please do not hesitate to contact Eya Naturals on +233 204 600 464 or +233 59 237 7008 @eyanaturals on Facebook and Instagram.
