One of the best ways we honor our crown, is to constantly figure out what helps it thrive.
Here are 5 hair care tips we swear by...
1. Oil Just The Scalp To Minimize Lint
While oil works magic in our hair, I've learned to concentrate it at their scalp to avoid having their hair be lint magnets.
2. Good Cleanse (Not Stripped Cleanse) Makes Our Hair Softer
Having our girls forced me to learn how to care for kinks and curls. In the beginning co-washing (cleansing the hair with conditioner) made sense. Over time, I realized while it may work for some, it damaged our curls. Cleansing with bar soap has been instrumental in our hair journey.
3. Always Finger Coil Ends
Our hair in its natural state is the best way to protect itself. I've noticed it with my hair (I wear a curly fro) and our girls' hair (who wear plaits fingercoiled at the ends).
4. Don’t Obsess Over Frizz, Our Texture Is A Better Indicator Of Our Hair Health
I'm not going to lie, I am often looking for styles to make their hair look less frizzy. However, their hair is thriving - growing longer, thicker, and stronger even though their braids look older than they really are.
5. Find The Least Amount Of Products That Work For You And Stick To Them
In my experience, less is always more. So, we are loyal to brands like Shea Moisture and Nubian Heritage, because they give us amazing results without having to pile on extra steps and products. I often get tempted to try new creams, serums, and lotions, but I found that even when the packaging makes a bunch of promises, they tend to fall short of what is already working for us.
