Here are some tips & tricks that we can learn from our childhood experiences with our natural hair:
Low Manipulation of the hair – This is when as children we maintained plaits, twists and buns shielding our hair away from daily brushing and altogether protecting our hair from the elements. All hair thrives in low manipulation hair regimens.
Gentle products – Many of our childhood memories will be of not using harsh products and treatments such as hair colours, heat, relaxers and hairsprays.
Water – The days of running from the water must be stopped, our hair needs moisture and the main source of that is water so keep your hair moisturised and keep your scalp clean by cleansing and conditioning your scalp frequently. Try our DIY sugar exfoliation here
Greasing your scalp – Heavy oils can actually obstruct the surface of our scalp slowing down the natural flaking process. These flakes then accumulate causing dryness, dandruff and itchy scalp. Frequent cleansing and supplementing your natural oils with jojoba or a light plant-based oil like coconut can help greatly.
