5 Tips to Treat Dry Natural Hair
Dry hair can be frustrating and can lead to breakage. Natural textured hair has a tendency to be dry because the tightly curly pattern hinders natural oils from the scalp from easily making their way down to the hair shaft. If your hair seems dry, you can work to get the moisture levels back with some extra care. Just be patient and with time, you'll notice your hair getting softer and easier to style.
1. Layer Your Products
Condition layering is the process of layering multiple conditioning products onto your natural hair. This process will help prolong and retain moisture. The steps to a good routine or regimen require products that add hydration.
2. Protect Your Hair At Night
3. Co-Wash Weekly
4. Wear Protective Styles
5. Limit Heat Styling
Heat styling is extremely damaging to hair. Too much heat affects the hair cuticle and your natural elasticity, creating split ends and possibly permanent heat damage. We recommend using low heat when heat styling, and, of course, use a heat protector. If you can cut out all heat styling, your hair will recover much more quickly.
