Taking care of your natural hair is a must but some of us don’t know how and what to use. Since the lockdown I have been embracing my natural hair much more than I used to and since I’ve been working from home I’m not wearing my wigs as much as I used to. This has given me the time to take care of my natural hair better.
I recently reached out to the Founder of Native Child, Sonto Pooe to share with us some hair care tips to better care for our crowns. Sonto is a natural hair advocate and her products are worth purchasing. I order a few items from her online store and delivery was done in less than a week.
I’m currently using the 100% raw shea butter, the coconut oil, avocado oil, hair growth stimulating castor oil and I protect my hair at night by using the satin bonnet or head scarf (I bought both since I couldn’t decide) You can shop your Native Child products HERE
Here’s how you can take care of your hair:
1. Your scalp is your garden from which your hair sprouts from. Make sure you take care of your scalp by keeping clean, moisturized and bacteria free .
2. Do regular scalp massages as they increase blood flow to the scalp and by so doing encourage growth.
3. Diet cannot be understated. Make sure you you eat a well balanced diet as a healthy crown is a sign of vitality.
Throw in a good multi vitamin as this supplements nutrients when our food falls short.
4. Moisture is key when is comes to healthy looking hair and retaining length. Make sure you hair is constantly moisturized . There are 4 main recommended moisture methods ( depending on your hair porosity ) Note: Hair porosity is your hair’s ability to absorb water, low being – not absorbent and high being too absorbent
LO- liquid oil
LC- liquid cream
LOC – Liquid Oil Cream
LCO – Liquid Cream Oil
The first 2 are recommended for low hair porosity hair whilst the later 2 are recommended for high porosity hair .
There is no one size fits all so it’s important to experiment to see what works best for your own hair
Lastly wear a satin cap. Or sleep with a satin pillow. It helps to not only helps to retain your hair’s mositure but also to prevent hair breaking as a result of scuffs & tension.
