I am super sorry I have been MIA. I do not have any excuse really. I am super sorry and I promise, I am back for good. How is everyone doing? My birthday post is still pending I know… and some other lovely stuff I have budding.
But first let’s talk about hair. I have not done a hair post in ages and so I wanted to share some tips and hacks as my welcome back party!
I have definitely missed you guys and I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who checked on me. The people who re-read my old posts and reached out too… I love you guys so much!
How to care for coloured Natural hair.
First rule is to moisturize as though you life depends on it. You must make sure your hair retains a high level of moisture all the time.
Coconut oil needs to be your best friend or better still a mix of jojoba, coconut and olive oil. Pretty basic huh? Chuck it in the microwave for a minute and massage into hair, wrap with a satin scarf and off to bed you go.
De-tangle only when wet/moist! What is in your spray bottle? (Topic for another day) arm yourself with you spray bottle and de-tangle your hair using your fingers and or a comb. That way you reduce friction and with heavily moisturized hair, you shouldn’t have a problem.
Use protein free hair products. That means if your hair is coloured, no egg wash for you and no hair mayo for you too. Your best bet will be protein free leave in conditioner and If you need to deep condition, it will be with a selection of oils.
Protective styling is another great way to preserve your hair glory. When your hair is coloured, you may want to explore protective styles with lesser manipulation of your edges. Then moisturize and sprits with your spray bottle as often as you can.
Lastly, do not be like me. Don’t be that natural hair lady who sleeps off without her satin scarf. Don’t be the one who doesn’t forget to spray her hair but will forget to braid up and then wake up with nappy ass hair. Better get your life!
I am very glad to be back.
