More people are starting to embrace their natural hair, and there is a long-standing myth that ethnic hair takes more time to grow; this is not true. Natural hair requires commitment and healthy practices.

Here are some possible solutions to keeping your natural strong and healthy

  1. Knowing your hair type can help you choose the correct hair shampoo, conditioner and treatment products.
  2. Try to avoid harsh detergents, bleaching for too long and harsh ingredients.
  3. The build up hair care products can sometimes dry hair out and cause dandruff. Wash hair once a week; every other week.
  4. Always use conditioner every time you wash you hair.
  5. Using a hot oil treatment twice a month helps in adding moisture and elasticity to the hair.
  6. When combing, comb your hair when it is wet, or damp.
  7. Use a wide-toothed comb and comb from the ends to the roots.
  8. Avoid putting too much stress on your hair; after patting it dry, let it air dry. Tight ponytail and pulling may damage the hair.
  9. When straightening your natural hair, avoid making the ceramic comb or hot iron too hot and only iron hair once a week to avoid hair breakage.
