Especially for women who have spent a lifetime in the salon chair enduring lengthy hair treatments, learning how to manage natural hair will involve a lot of study. Even the New York Times recently reported on the difficulties experienced by African Americans when it comes to reestablishing their natural hair.
There is no one-size-fits all method to taking care of natural hair. However, there are some ways to make basic care easier.
Clean: first with a wide tooth comb comb hair, warm water soaked, wiping moisturizing shampoo soft hair, curly hair choose a mild sulphate-free shampoo or shampoo designed to curl; clean water and with your fingers or section comb Combing; light wiping conditioner, 2-3 minutes after the water wash; finally wipe with a absorbent towel or naturally dry.(Note: curly hair needs to be used when the hair 7 into the hair when the volume of curly hair)
Moisturizing: Conditioning is essential to natural hair because the oils from the scalp are not administered evenly down the hair because of the twists and curls. In-shower conditioning with a moisturizing formula or a conditioner designed for curly hair should be used after shampooing. Daily leave-in conditioners or hair oils also help maintain moisture. Use a deep conditioner as needed, for most women at least once a month. Be sure to use products that specify they are made for deep conditioning.
Protein Treatments: Protein formulas can add strength, but should not be overused. Women who are transitioning may need more protein, and at-home protein treatments can be used two to three times per month.For hair that does not have much damage, protein once per month can help fortify the hair. Deep protein treatments are usually reserved for very damaged hair that has substantial breakage and should be done at a salon, but not more often than once every six to eight weeks. Alternate protein treatments with deep conditioners to keep hair healthy and balanced.
