There are practically somethings to never do to your hair because it’s more fragile than you think. In order to maintain that healthy, shiny and stunning hair, here are 5 things you should never do to your hair.

1. DO NOT USE CONDITIONER LIKE SHAMPOO

    Shampoo is not conditioner. Therefore, you shouldn’t use them the same way. Shampoo is meant to clean your hair at the roots. While conditioner is meant to moisturize the part of your hair that needs it most which is the ends.

    Applying conditioner to your roots will leave a tacky film behind, make your scalp oily, and also grease up your hair. Therefore, apply conditioner only to the ends of your hair, which is probably where it’s most dry, broken and damaged.

2. DO NOT BRUSH WITH A DIRTY HAIR BRUSH

    Always clean your hair brush because it can collect many germs,bacteria,and dead skin cells that you are not aware of. Remove all the hair before going through your brush with a clean toothbrush, baking soda and tea tree oil solution before letting it air dry.

3. DO NOT EXPOSE YOUR HAIR TO TOO MUCH SUN

    Your hair can get damaged from too much exposure to sun, just like your skin. The sun’s warmth may feel great, but it can quickly dehydrate your hair, decrease its natural proteins, and cause damage. This can be avoided by wearing a protective hat or by keeping your hair moisturized.

4. DO NOT OVERWASH YOUR HAIR

    Your hair has natural oils that it must maintain to keep it healthy. Washing it more often than it truly needs will only do more than good. Washing your hair about three to four times a week is a good schedule for oily manes, while two to three times a week is better for thinner, dryer hair that is more exposed to hot tools. 

5. DO NOT USE TOO MUCH PRODUCT

     Most hair products only require a small amount, from the size of a pea to a quarter, to effectively work. Using too much hair product can mess with your hair’s natural makeup as well as create irritation and/or greasy hair faster than you would like. Therefore, it’s best to stick to the recommended amount.

We all want a very long, full, well moisturized and healthy hair but in order to achieve this, we need to have a clear goal of the exact hair type because it makes this easier to achieve.  After this, choosing the right products for your desired hair type is important.

  Here are some few steps that can be taken;

PROPER CLEANSING

Clean hair is healthy hair. Therefore, it is important to cleanse the hair regularly. The key is not just how often you cleanse but also the type of Shampoo you use. Using the right make would give you the best result because the basic job of a Shampoo is to clean the hair by removing dirt, excess oils and scales. Therefore, it is important that people with wavy, curly or kinky hair use Shampoos that moisturize as well as cleanse the hair.

DETANGLING

For those with curly hair, detangling is also an important part. Curly and Afro-textured hair have the tendency to interlock more than any other hair types because the tighter the curl pattern, the more it interlocks which is the reason Afro-textured hair  tends to lock easily than any other hair type. However, it is always advisable to detangle the hair when wet, damp or with some form of oil, conditioner, or moisturizer in your hair. To detangle, always start detangling at the ends of  your hair and work your way up to the root using your hands because fingers tends to feel tangles a lot better than a comb can.

CONDITIONING

Conditioning your hair is also a great process as it improves the moisture and protein content of the hair. Conditioners are also great for providing slip on the strands of your hair, which makes it easier to manipulate and detangle without your curls interlocking and causing breakage during the process.

These are pro tips from your trusted hair care products plug.  Don’t forget to leave a comment below, so we can keep providing you with the best natural hair content.

Trichotillomania (also known as hair pulling disorder) is a form of hair loss caused by an irresistible urge to pull out your hair,either from your scalp or any other part of your body.
It can result in small or large thin and bald patches, and it is often extremely distressing for those who suffer from it.
At first,the hair that is pulling out grows back.however,over many years your follicles can be damaged, resulting in permanent hair loss. Trichotillomania is most common in teenagers and young adults, and is observed more often in women than in men.
Trichotillomania can be mild and manageable, or severe and ongoing in either case, it is often an emotionally upsetting condition. If you suspect that you or your child is suffering from it, it is best to consult a doctor and /or trichologist for help.
If you are worried about any form of hairloss, our brand Afrovirtues Natural Products Limited specialises in all aspects of hair and scalp health, and will be happy to welcome and assist you.

WHAT FACTORS CONTRIBUTE to TRICHOTILLOMANIA?

The causes of trichotillomania are psychological and are often complex.some contributing factors include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Traumatic experience


For those who suffer from the condition,the act of pulling out a hair can feel very satisfying and can provide a temporary release of tension. Hair pulling can be very hard to stop,and many people who have trichotillomania go to some lengths to hide the condition.
At Afrovirtues, over 3 years in practice, we have seen many cases of trichotillomania in people of all ages and genders. We know how embarrassing and distressing it can feel and we are here to help provide advice and treatment.

HOW DO YOU DIAGNOSE TRICHOTILLOMANIA?

Trichotillomania is frequently misdiagnosed as alopecia areata- another type of hairloss that occurs in patches. There are two reasons for this;
First, both conditions look similar to the untrained eye.
Second, people are often ashamed & fearful to tell their doctor that they are pulling out their own hair.
This is particularly an issue in diagnosing children and young teenagers with tricotillomania, who might be pulling out their hair in secret without their parent’s knowledge.
However, there is a recognizable diagnostic feature of trichotillomania- uneven hair breakage.
In alopecia areata,hairs in or around a bald patch will be roughly the same lengths but in trichotillomania, hairs that are pulled out snap off at different lengths. Also, the pattern of hair loss from trichotillomania is usually more pronounced on the right side of the scalp if you are right – handed and vice versa.

HOW DO YOU TREAT THRICHOTILLOMANIA?

The first and most important step in recovery from trichotillomania is getting help for the person suffering from it (this could be yourself, a friend, or family member)

psychological therapy may be recommended please remember there is nothing to be ashamed of or embarrassed about-at Afrovirtues, we have seen many individuals with trichotillomania ranging from young children to highly successful women and men.just like recovery from any other Conditional disorder, external support is essential.

wearing thick gloves, especially at night, when the temptation to pull out your hair may be at it’s peak.

Cutting your hair short so that it is impossible to get hold of.

Covering your hair with a slippery cream or oil.

wearing a scarf over your head.

playing with worry beads or other stress management tools to take your mind off the impulses.

All treatments for trichotillomania take time and patience,but the good news is that your hair can grow back, if it has been going on for a long time,less may do so, or your hair may grow back a different texture. But you will see an improvement.

The post 11 WAYS TO CARE FOR YOUR KIDS HAIR appeared first on Afrovirtues.

Children’s hair care is a tricky task,you need to learn about your kids hair and also understand your kids activity level.

In this post, you will learn the best regimen and how to carry this out;

1) TAILOR YOUR SHAMPOO REGIMEN TO YOUR CHILD’S NEED

  • You should understand your kids hair type (straight, curly, oily or dry) activity level and age.
  • You should always use a sulfate free shampoo on your kids hair
  • You should wash their hair once every 2 weeks or once a week, depending on how dirty the hair is.

2) PROTECTIVE STYLE IS NOT AN EXCUSE FOR NOT WASHING

While washing you should massage their scalp. And if they have dry or itchy scalp, you should do a hot oil treatment for them.

3) USE CONDITIONERS GENEROUSLY

They play a lot especially those that play outdoor and their hair can get really dry, conditioning will help replenish all the moisture lost in their hair.
Because shampooing can be very drying,you can use a deep conditioner first on their hair after shampoo. After applying this,work it into their hair with your fingers, allow to sit for about 10-15 minutes and use a wide-tooth comb to detangle properly. Rinse this out properly.


4) LEAVE IN CONDITIONER

While hair is still done, apply a generous amount of the kids leave in conditioner.


5) Hair oil to massage scalp for hair growth and scalp health.


6) Hair butter for sealing moisture, reducing breakage & shedding,adding shine and improving texture


7) Satin Bonnet & Satin Pillowcase:

Older kids will have no problem with satin bonnets,younger Kids will do better with a satin pillowcase. Satin bonnets/pillowcase are awesome and reduces the amount of tangling that occurs. If your kid is still very young, I.e a baby and you still wear warmers for them, please have a tailor line all your kids head warmers with a satin fabric. This will ensure your kids hair doesn’t get cut in the fabric or gets dried up with the fabric. As we know head warmers can dry out ones hair. Available at the Afrovirtues Store at 89, Ogudu road, Lagos.


8) Daily Routine

in the morning,you should apply your moisturizer to your kids hair, followed by oil to massage scalp and butter to seal in moisture.
In the evening, if the hair still feels moisturized, you can skip till the next day, if the hair feels extra dry you can apply leave in conditioner after daily moisturizer.


9) Detangling:

You should always remember to detangle properly before combing or brushing..
Never comb/brush hair dry.
Use your finger as a comb to detangle hair, this will remove any tiny knots or tangles.
Use a wide-tooth comb to gently but thoroughly detangle hair section by section.
If the hair drys out before you detangle the next section,spray again.
Don’t get their scalp up with petroleum products.


10) Styling :

Styles matter a lot, one style can disrupt all the hard work you put into their hair in few seconds.

no tight hairstyles
*no pulling of hairstyle
*reduce gel
*apply hair butter to hairline

once you start seeing boils on their hairlines or white stuff, take out that style. SHE IS IN PAIN! that might be why she is being cranky.


11) Words:

Stop telling them or anyone in their presence how horrible their hair looks or feels. Let them know their hair is their crown and it should be respected.

THANK YOU FOR READING THIS POST TO THE END,

CHILDREN ALL OVER THE WORLD.

That’s why it is of extreme important to detoxify your hair at least once a month, with a good moisturizing shampoo, and a proper deep conditioner.

Detoxification is the process of removing all chemicals, products and environmental pollutant that stick to the hair. The buildup of all these things in your hair can cause itchy scalp.

In this post, we would be taking you through the benefits of Detoxification and how to detoxify your hair.

Though itchy scalp can be caused by dandruff, which is as a result of too much yeast present in the hair. Other serious factors include Psoriasis, Fungal infection, Head lice, hot comb (hair loss due to frequent heat styling) Ringworm which leads to hair loss that increases in size over time.

All the scalp ailments mentioned above are more pronounced during hot weather.

One of the best way to save yourself from this, is by detoxifying the hair, you can use shampoo containing Zinc ingredient that help control yeast and also help control scalp psoriasis.

Benefits Of Detoxification

Detoxification helps to soften and condition the hair, thereby making one enjoy fewer tangles to deal with on wash days.

It also promotes hair growth, because cleansing the scalp thoroughly can remove all the dead skin and enhance healthy hair growth by creating the perfect environment for growing hair.

How To Detoxify Using a Moisturizing Shampoo And Deep Conditioner

Firstly, it is advisable to divide your hair into chunks and detangle properly. This process should be done first with your hands first and then with your detangling brush. Also, detangle from the tip and work your way up to the root of your hair.

The next step is to wash your hair with our Afrovirtues herbal repair shampoo which is 100% natural and warm water. However, it is advisable to wash in twist so your hair doesn’t shrink which could in turn lead to breakage. Using warm water will also open up your hair cuticles. Afterwards, apply deep conditioner to your hair in sections starting from the tip. This is because the tip of the hair is the oldest part and should be cared for the most.

Always finish your shampoo and conditioning session with a cool water rinse and make it last as long as it takes for all products to be gone.

In this post, you will see that its possible to get involved in business and still make extra income without affecting your studies as a Student. Most Students search for weekend jobs or businesses they can do, but with this opportunity you have the freedom to sell at your own convenience.

Afrovirtues student retailer business opportunity

Afrovirtues has always been a company that believes in impacting her immediate environment and adding her quota to community development. In her bid to fulfill this goal, a program was developed targeted at empowering students by allowing them to start a business while they study without interfering with their school work.

Afrovirtues is an ambassador for all things natural and believes in pushing the natural movement to the young ones, knowing that they are the hope of our tomorrow.

Students retailers are given the opportunity to sell products to their fellow school mates and people around them, in order to make profit, and use for the products personal beauty and hair needs.

Meet some of our retailers:

“I decided to retail for Afrovirtues because of my own hair issues. I used to have a very healthy hair and I never used any special product except Shea Butter (Ori) and coconut oil. Though it was relaxed. 2016 I decided to cut it because it started shedding excessively; thinking that starting all over again will solve the issue. It actually did. The hair grew well over a period of one year. Then I was posted to Kano and out of fear that my hair won’t cope with the weather I relaxed before getting there. I used organic relaxer.

Before I stumbled on Afrovirtues my once glorious hair was looking like a piece of sacrifice. My hair would shed like I was using clipper on it. In fact, I lost my edges and my back hair was as though it was cut off on purpose. I used a lot of products, spent money; but it got worse.
Do you know that I have used Afrovirtues for just two times now, after first use my hair didn’t shed much I was super surprised. Never believed I would get results after one use.

So sorry am bombarding with all these stories but whatever recipes you guys use, please don’t stop. I can’t wait to do a before and after in a couple of weeks, when my hair will grow back and my edges will be on fleek again. I learnt the relaxer I use is also a contributing factor. But right now I want to go off relaxer for at least 8 months and see what happens.
But I won’t stop using this product, I will keep retailing even when I don’t get buyers for some products I will use them and pay from my pocket.

I know am making the right decision.
Thank you again”

To become Retailer and start a Business with Afrovirtues the requirements are very flexible with a lot of incentives;

Have you noticed how dry, dusty and harsh the weather has been lately?

If you haven’t noticed, your hair probably has, this is the season where people tend to loose the most hair.

Pay close attention because this will determine if you will come out of this season with any hair on your head, lol. I will be giving you the best hair care tips for the Harmattan period. The last one is the most important, read to the end.

  • INVEST IN A SPRAY BOTTLE

Trust me you will need it this season, the best gift you can give your hair this period is to keep it moisturized, your hair will dry up rapidly, even after moisturizing.

You need to moisturize as often as possible, morning and night. or at least once a day.

professional spray bottle 250ml.

AVOID CLARIFYING SHAMPOOS

Clarifying shampoos are good for removing excess dirt and residue in the hair, but it has one disadvantage it also wipes off the natural oils produced by the sebaceous glands in our hair follicles, leaving the hair dry and brittle. That’s why we recommend that you use a Moisturizing Shampoo this season, they not only balance the PH of your hair, but it keeps your hair properly moisturized and healthy.

Dry Natural Hair
  • SATIN BONNETS / PILLOWS CASES ARE YOUR BEST FRIENDS

There’s no excuse to sleeping without a bonnet or a satin pillowcase on these cold nights, this goes for all the mommies and babies out there. Wear your bonnets at all times whenever you are indoors, especially when you want to sleep. The silky satin material reduces friction between your hair and your pillowcase or bonnet, which makes hair less frizzy and reduces breakage and tangling.

Satin Bonnets and pillow cases are available here

  • INCREASE YOUR WATER INTAKE

Drink as much water as possible, it is extremely important you stay hydrated the state of our body can be known through our hairs, nails, skin and so on. In order to keep all these parts well moisturized it is recommended to drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water per day.

Take a minimum of 8 Glasses of water
  • MOISTURIZE! MOISTURIZE! MOISTURIZE!

I don’t mind saying it one last time, Moisturize! Invest in the Afrovirtues Daily Hair Moisturizer and water based leave in conditioner right now, head over to our store, outlets, any means you can get one right now. It is very important for you to keep your hair moisturized.

  • SEAL IN THE MOISTURE

Moisture will quickly dry up in this season, it is of extreme important that after moisturizing you seal in the liquid with a light hair butter made from whipped oils like the Herbal Hair Growth Butter What this does is it helps to lock in all the moisture, ensuring your hair gets all the nutrients and mineral it needs.

  • PUT ON THE ARMOUR OF PROTECTIVE STYLES

Protective styling simply means putting your hair in styles like weaving, braids, cornrows, and any style that is convenient for you. This will help your hair retain more moisture and reduce the amount of hair breakage you will experience this season. This really is not the time to flaunt that Afro, we love your natural hair but keeping it healthy is more important.

In this post i will be sharing with you 10 amazing tips and tricks that may seem small but have huge effects on your hair health and retention. Let’s just jump right into it.

Afrovirtues Customer Review

Eat Healthy

Are you surprised? You shouldn’t be healthy hair starts from within. Include healthy fruits and vegetable in your diet and drink lots of water. If you have a difficult time eating vegetables, there are so many exciting smoothie recipes available online. Blending up a fruit and veggie smoothie is an easy and tasty way to get your daily dose. This will give you the nutrients your hair follicles need to help your strands stay healthy.

Cleanse Hair & Scalp Regularly

Have you heard of product build up?  There’s a misconception that packing a lot of products on your hair will help it grow. But that’s the biggest lie, natural hair products have certain ways in which they are meant to be used, if there are too much products in your hair, the pores in your scalp get clogged up  preventing hair growth.

As you might have notices, there are two constant products in every Afrovirtues package which is the Herbal Repair Shampoo and Green Tea and Moringa Deep Conditioner which keeps your hair and scalp clean, gets rid of build-up and doesn’t completely strip your hair of its natural oils. Yes, healthy hair starts from within, but it also needs a clean, healthy environment from which to grow.
How often you wash your hair is totally dependent on your lifestyle (maybe you work out daily), how much product you use, and so on. 

Use Sulfate-Free Shampoo & Finger-pads When Cleansing

Shampoos containing sulfates strip the hair of its natural moisture. That’s why it is essential to use an all-natural shampoo like the Herbal Repair Shampoo and the Kids Herbal Shampoo. It leaves your scalp completely clean and provides your hair with essential nutrients.

Also, it might feel good to scratch your hair while washing, but it hurts your scalp and it’s advisable to use the pads of your fingers to gently massage the shampoo into your scalp with a little pressure.

Deep Condition

Hair can be extremely sensitive especially after washing; the process of shampooing usually strips the hair of its natural oils. To restore your hair, you need a really good deep conditioner like the Green Tea and Moringa Deep Conditioner. This strengthens, moisturizes and softens the hair.  

Overnight conditioning may be popular, but we only recommend you steam with the deep conditioner for a few hours. After applying the Deep Conditioner leave it for a few hours under a steaming cap and you will have saved time, energy and resources.

The Kids Deep Conditioner is also available.

Gently Detangle From tip to Root

Natural hair shrinks a lot and easily tangles up, while detangling it is extremely necessary to be gentle and to start from the tips and gently make your way up to the roots. Proper detangling helps to reduce hair breakage. To read more about detangling click here

Moisturize & Seal

Moisturizing isn’t just about pouring water on your hair, you need a good product that is water based like the Daily Hair Moisturizer, it contains Chamomile, aloe Vera, neem and other  important hair growth extracts.

After Moisturizing, it is essential to seal in the moisture with a Herbal Hair Growth Butter that is light, a leave in conditioner and a styler of your choice to keep your hair healthy, soft, and manageable.

Get Regular Trims

A regular visit to the salon can do a lot of good, let them help you trim off the split ends, it can affect the overall growth of your hair.  Check out the next post to know more about Split Ends and how to trim them yourself. Trimming hair gets rid of broken and split ends that could lead to more damage. This will help keep your hair at its healthiest.

Protect Your Hair (Wear Protective Styles)

A lot of things factor in hair loss, apart from keeping it moisturized, endeavor to wrap your hair with a silk or satin scarf or bonnet at night. If you prefer a little freedom while sleeping a satin Pillowcase should be your go to. Keeping your hair in protective styles for a few days or even a few months will help you retain length.

Massage Your Scalp

Massaging the scalp helps stimulate blood flow as well as activate hair follicles to encourage healthy hair growth.

Achieving a healthy, beautiful natural hair can be a tough task if you don’t know what to do; meanwhile,all it takes is a little TLC (Tender Loving Care) and voila! Your hair can go from where it is to THIS

AFROVIRTUES HAIR GROWTH ROUTINE

In this mini-tutorial, I will be showing you how to grow your hair like those two smart ladies above. All they did was follow through with this simple hair routine and they started getting the amazing results they so dearly craved.

Before the end of this post, I will also show you a simple routine you can use for yourself and your kids daily, that’s quick, effective and keeps hair perfectly moisturized.

One of the most common causes of hair loss is dryness, the moment your hair is not properly moisturized it starts to break, leaving your hair short and unattractive.

You can perform these steps on protective styles, like cornrows, twist outs, weaving and so on.

So the first and most important daily routine anyone who cares about their hair is meant to follow is to moisturize. You need a very good Moisturizer, I will recommend our Daily Hair Moisturizer formerly know ass Daily hair thirst quencher. It contains Chamomile extract, Aloe Vera, neem and other amazing ingredients that promote hair growth, as well as keep your hair shiny, strong and healthy.

Have you ever heard of the LOC treatment?Well for most Naturalista’sit is the most common and effective hair care routine, it simple stands for Liquid, Oil and Cream.

For the purpose of this tutorial; we will use the Daily Hair Moisturizer as the “L”

How to Properly Moisturize:

  1. Partition your hair into large chunks, if your hair is not in a protective style; for easy access to the scalp.
  2. Take each section and spray generously with the  Daily Hair Moisturizer
  3. Use your fingers to detangle and massage into your hair and scalp

Next “O” – Oil, there are so many varieties of hair oil that choosing the right one can be difficult but Afrovirtues has put together the perfect blend of essential oils, that are great for hair growth and restoration, even if you suffer from scalp conditions such as psoriasis and dandruff you can use the Dandruff and Anti-itch oil to treat your scalp while enhancing hair growth, or you can focus on the hair growth by getting the Herbal Hair Growth Oil.

How to Oil your hair and scalp:

  1. Partition your hair
  2. Apply oil directly to your scalp
  3. Massage into your scalp
  4. Gently rub into your hair, from the roots up.

“C” – Cream this last process helps to lock in the moisture from the preceding steps. It’s easy to apply products on your hair, but within a few hours they just dry off, without fully performing their functions, especially in areas with harsh or dry weather.The Herbal Hair Growth Butter is made from whipped oils, which makes it light on the hair and also protects the hair by locking in the moisture.

AFROVIRTUES HAIR GROWTH ROUTINE REVIEW

To Soften Hair:

For people who have tough hair, it is advisable to get the Frizz Hero leave in Conditioner, it helps to soften the hair, making it easy to manipulate and style.

For Edge Repair and Bald Spots:

Spray the Guava Hair Tonic on the affected area, use the pad of your fingers to spread evenly and rub into your scalp, then apply the edge repair cream.

Hair Growth Routine For Kids:

All you need is 3 items from your Afrovirtues Full Kids Range, if you don’t have It, I will advise you to quickly click on the SHOP NOW icon above, we are giving 10% OFF all our packages. Just like I mentioned before you only need 3 items, I will share the link in which to get all the items below, you only need the Kids Multi-Frootie Hair Growth Oil, Kids No Frizz Hair Milk and a spray bottle.

Simple pour a little quantity of the kids Leave in Conditioner, in the spray bottle, add in a little Kids hair growth oil and pour in about 100ml of water. Shake carefully till the content is properly mixed.

Spray this mixture every morning on your child’s hair to keep it moisturized and soft. Then simply rubThe kids Hair Growth Butter on the child’s hair to lock in the moisture which is very important.

HOW TO PROPERLY DETANGLE HAIR – FOR ALL HAIR TYPES

In this post I will show you a very simple method to detangle hair fast and without losing much hair. Whether your hair is relaxed or natural, detangling takes patience and a gentle touch. 

To download the complete guide on how to properly wash your hair detangle and maintain your hair on a daily basis, to achieve healthy, big , bold and beautiful hair CLICK HERE

This method is so simple that all you need are two products that almost every naturalista has and if you don’t have I will provide the link  where you can get the products at a discounted rate at the end of this post.

At certain times, I got frustrated with my hair because as much as it was growing the moment I pass a comb through it the entire hair falls off again, I tried so many so called Detangling products but none worked, until I discovered this method.

Here is a review from a customer who used this method and recommended products:

For a lot of ladies detangling hair can be painful and tasking, some just give up and cut the hair. But Afrovirtues has provided a method that is not only easy but saves a lot of time and stress.

MATERIALS TO DETANGLE HAIR:

All you need are these very affordable products:

Flaxseed and Aleovera Detangler

Frizz Hero Leave-in-Conditioner

Wide tooth comb

Professional Spray Bottle

METHOD TO DETANGLE HAIR:

With these products I mentioned above you will have a silky, knot free hair by the time you give this method a trial.

STEP 1:

We have a special method you will use to partition your hair, tough natural hair can be difficult to partition especially once its tangled. It a very simple technique, simply stick a finger in the section you want to partition and gently use your fingers to separate it. Part hair in small sections and twist; take one section at a time and spray with the Afrovirtues Flaxseed and Aloe vera Detangler.

Repeat this method several times until you have covered the entire hair, you will notice that your hair will be really soft and silky. But this is only the first step to having a knot free hair.

This first step helps to soften knots as well as moisten your hair, the products contains aloevera which is amazing for strengthening hair as well as repairing damaged hair.

STEP 2:

Squirt some Frizz Hero Leave-in-Conditioner on your palm, then evenly apply to your hair, while using your fingers or a wide tooth comb to carefully detangle.

After carrying out these two steps you will have a silky, tangle free hair, that is soft and still intact with very minimal hair loss.

It’s always very important to remember to try as much as possible not to comb your natural hair while its still dry, the hair will not only break, but it is also very painful and can affect the roots of your hair.

METHOD 2:

MATERIALS ;

FRIZZ HERO LEAVE IN CONDITIONER

SPRAY BOTTLE

WIDE TOOTH COMB

STEP 1:

Pour a little leave in conditioner into your spray bottle, shake it thoroughly.

Spray the mixture evenly on your hair

Gently use your fingers to detangle and partition into 4/6 sections

Pick up the wide tooth comb and start combing out each section from the tips to the roots.

THAT’S ALL!

Easy right? Once you know what to do maintaining natural hair is not so difficult.

Link to all the materials needed will be provided below;

Flaxseed and Aleovera Detangler

Frizz Hero Leave-in-Conditioner

Wide tooth comb

Professional Spray Bottle
