Shedding, breakage, split-ends, more shedding. When hair is in need of rescuing drastic conditioning needs to take place. Super conditioners, healthy eating, and good hair care practices are all needed to put your hair back to the glory it was intended. Yes, this battle to great healthy hair must take place on all fronts.
Outlined below are the steps to protective styling and hair care.
Your ends may well be split, in worse cases there are are not only a few split ends, but split strands and knots independently formed all the way up the strand. What causes this? Especially our natural strand to curl into itself, tiny and tightly knotting up? - lack of moisture.
Want moisture? - then you want water!
WATER WATER WATER!!!
Get off the myth that you're Hair don't like water! You're just not using it right! You have to lock the moisture in. Afro Hair LOVES it.
Loves it in the air -remember tropical humidity?
Loves when we drink it - healthy hydration
Loves to be slathered in it - see the ingredients of all your fav products,
- Don't Aqua come first?
Get your Leave-In, and spritz moisturisers, wetting your hair with water before nourishing your strands with a Leave-In, and then a Serum for maximum moisture lock in.
And for those bad ends seal in the moisture by first damping water using your fingertips then smoothing the damaged ends away with extreme moisturisers like BPT Brillantina, for softer, more manageable ends that are shielded from the damage.
Don't leave your hair out. Unfortunately there is not enough moisture in this climate we live in, and the harshness of the winter air dries out our hair. So keep your hair out to a minimum, by twisting or wrapping at night, Afro hair to be fed-moisturised and put to rest, so whenever possible tuck your hair's ends in to sleep!
Super-hydrated, Super-moisturised hair, will get you healthy hair whatever the climate!
