Natural Hair Regimen For Relaxed Hair?

Over the course of the month, some readers with relaxed hair have on different occasions inquired about  applying natural hair care regimen to relaxed hair. It dawned on me that relaxed sisters follow the blog. In Today's  piece, I provide  applicable aspects of natural hair care to relaxed hair.

As simple as it may seem, I know  we've become so accustomed to our hair care regimens just that we hardly recognize defects in our routines. Let us dissect some of the changes we can apply.
  • Sleep on a satin pillowcase, use a satin scarf and if it keeps coming off, do what I do ( add a shower cap for a firm hold). Cotton pillow cases cause the hair to dry out since it absorbs moisture in the hair.
  • Use a wide-tooth comb when detangling hair to avoid breakage.
  • Add deep conditioning  to your hair routine. This will give your hair some moisture
  • Find a protein treatment like Aphogee Two Step Protein Treatment to strengthen the hair. Be sure to follow application instructions!
  • Find a good leave-in conditioner
  • Use a conditioner
  • Clarify your hair to rid it of product build-up
  • Trim the split ends off
  • Keep a hair journal to record and monitor the effect of the product you used for the day/week/month. It might help you to  either discard or continue using a product. 
  • Protect the ends of the hair from rubbing against your dress to avoid breakage.
  • Seal in moisture with oil to moisturize the hair. Beware of mineral oil and petroleum based products. 
  • Air dry the hair instead of using heat to reduce damage to hair caused by the heat (from hooded or hand dryers). Styles like roller sets can be air dried. 
That's my take sisters.
