Black Hair Care Tips
1) Put a satin or a nylon sleep cap on your head or sleep on a satin pillow case.
This helps minimize split ends caused by the friction of hair against a absorbent cotton pillow case. It also avoids moisture being wicked out of your hair into the cotton pillow case.
2) Shampoo your hair no more than once a week or every ten days. If you do it more than this it can dry your hair out. Use a good conditioner and a of course a wide tooth comb, part in sections and comb from the bottom up.
4) Avoid products with petroleum or mineral oil. They clog your follicle pores and catch debris and dust in the air. These products can also cause build up in your hair if you wear locs.
5) Minimize the your use of blow dryers. They don’t dry your hair evenly and can cause damage in the places that end up being over dried. Sit under a hood dryer instead, they dry your hair evenly giving it a vibrant healthier look.
