“It’s Too Hot For Natural Hair”!
Ladies it is that time of the year. The temperatures are rising to nearly 100 degrees, and it is only spring. Trust me when I say, I know maintaining your curly tresses can be a hassle during the summer. Here are a few tips that can help with this matter.
It is important that you deep condition often. I recommend deep conditioning once a week or every two weeks. Deep conditioning prevents hair breakage and strengthens your strands. It also reduces split ends, and it improves your texture by giving elasticity. When purchasing conditioner, look for products with essential oils such as argan and olive oil. In addition to these great benefits, your hair will receive moisture.
Speaking of Moisture..
Moisturizing is essential to healthy hair, especially since the weather is getting warmer. You can keep your hair hydrated by applying a good moisturizer. Remember water is the best moisturizer. So be sure your hair is wet before applying a leave in conditioner, hair butter, or hair lotion. After applying the product, be sure to seal that moisture by using an oil. Often times people think that oils can be used as a moisturizer, but oils are sealants. So remember to apply your moisturizer first, and then the oil on top.
Get a Good Gel
I know some people aren’t a fan of hair gel, but gel can be your friend during the hot days. Gel helps with frizz. It gives control of your style and gives your hair a hold. Plus, there are some gels out there that can help with humidity.
If you ever feel like you need a break from styling your hair, try protective styling. You can do protective hairstyles with your natural hair or with weave. With protective styling, you’ll retain hair length, reduce damage, and it helps with growth. Some examples of protective styles are: twists, braids, and updos.
I guarantee you’ll have a smooth hair summer with these tips.
