The versatility of natural hair has been established. Unlike back in the day when naturalistas were 'limited' to few styles, the styles we're all witnessing today are nothing short of amazing. Styling is one of the many ways to either maintain your hair or lose your hair based on the techniques used. To keep your hair healthy, here are a few tips to go by.
Understand your hair
Identify your curl pattern, find out the porosity of your hair, use the right hair tools and know what products your hair responds to. The versatility of natural hair also means that everything doesn't work for everyone. Your best bet is to experiment with products and tools till you get it right.
This cannot be stressed enough. Moisturize your hair often. Hydrating your hair and keeping it healthy is a must. Explore deep conditioning, daily conditioning, co-washing, and the use of the LOC/LCO (Liquid, Oil, Conditioner / Liquid, Conditioner, Oil) method.
Use the right styling tools and accessories
Due to how tangled natural hair tends to get, using the right tools and accessories go a long way in helping to retain length. Pack your styling box with wide-tooth combs, detangling brushes, satin bonnets, silk pillowcases and bows and ties which do not pull on the hair.
Be gentle when detangling
Detangling is an essential process and doing it wrong is likely to break your hair. Before detangling, make sure you moisturize your hair well. Divide your hair into sections and with a wide tooth comb or detangling brush, detangle hair from its ends through to its roots.As it is with everything, consistency pays. Having a consistent hair care regimen would help in growing healthier hair. Incorporate these styling tips into your regimen. It'll be worth it.
