There are several ways to achieve this, but it must be in accordance to your hair texture and type. Most importantly you need patience and commitment. Steps below will have you at your goal in no time:
- What you put inside you is what you’re going to get on the outside. So drink enough water and eat right.
- Don’t become a product junkie. Really get to know your texture and type and what works for you.
- Use wide toothed combs and your fingers to detangle.
- Let your hair air dry so it can retain as much moisture as possible. If you must use a towel, gently blot the hair to remove excess moisture. Avoid rigorous towel drying which can induce hair breakage.
- Shampoo your hair once in one or two weeks with natural shampoos that are sulfate and paraben free.
- Use warm water during shampooing to remove dirt, product buildup and for easy penetration of conditioners. Rinse off conditioners with cold water to gently close the cuticle and lock in moisture into the hair strand.
- Natural hair thrives in moisture; moisturize your hair daily to prevent dryness.
- When hair is not in protective style, braid your hair up at night in something like bantu knots, two-strand twists or a pineapple, to protect from breakage.
- Invest in a satin/silk head bonnet or scarf to protect your hair while you sleep.
