To our first post: Keep Your Edges When This is Over
The hair salon is closed and out of boredom maybe you took that protective style out to play with your hair for a bit. I know I've definitely been doing it
That's fine but the last thing we all want is BREAKAGE
Here are my 3 Quick Tips to Keep Your Hair Healthy and Your Edges Intact:
Keep it Moisturized
- Thank goodness more people are learning that moisture for our kinky coiled hair is a GOOD THING. I like to use rose water for my 4b/4c hair (which not only is a natural antibacterial toner but also great for growth).
- After I spritz it all over my hair - currently my hair is in cornrows - I use an olive oil hair lotion and massage into my roots and over my braids. You can also use hair oil.
Keep it Clean
- I use a scalp cleaner in between my washes (I wash every 3 weeks) so my scalp isn't itchy.
- I co-wash every other wash cycle but do what feels right for your hair!
Deep Condition is GREAT
- I've managed to grow my hair rapidly by deep conditioning with rice water. I deep condition with rice water once a month and sure it smells awful but that protein is something beautiful. (Make sure you do a strand test to make sure your hair can handle the protein)
That's all for now. Have a hair method you swear by? Comment below we'd love to see it!
Stay safe during these crazy times!!
