1. Wear low manipulation styles that will last a few days to a month to protect your natural hair.
Some ideas are flat twists, braids, two-strand twists. These styles will allow your hair to breathe and keep your hands and combs out of it. Low manipulation hairstyles or protective hairstyles will help prevent breakage and damage.
It will help to retain moisture and protect your style, keeping it fresh. Satin Lined Caps are great for running errands and protects your hair against harsh elements including the rain or the sun. Satin bonnets and scarves are great if you don't move around too much in your sleep. If you're a mover and a shaker in bed, the Satin Lined Cap is the best way to go.
3. Co-Wash Your Hair with only conditioner and no shampoo at all.
Co-washing your hair is like watering a plant, according to Natural Neicey. This is great for transitioning and helps add moisture in your hair.
4. Detangle with a wide-tooth comb or a detangling hair brush to prevent extra breakage and prevent pain while detangling.
Remember to moisturize your hair before you detangle. Kimberly's favorite detangling hair brush is by Felicia Leatherwood.
5. Find out your hair porosity level.
This will help you save money on buying products that won't help your hair type.Kimberly's eBook "Curly Halo," teaches you about hair porosity and how to find your porosity type.
6. Keep your scalp clean.
A healthy scalp aids in hair growth as build-up will actually keep your hair from growing.
7. Deep condition your hair because it will help your hair be shiny, healthy, and moisturized.
Deep condition your hair at least once a week (if you have dry hair) or once a month.
8. Be consistent and build a regimen.
Find out what works for you. Maybe it's washing your hair weekly, deep conditioning monthly, and co-washing twice a week. Whatever you do, be consistent. Don't just wear a satin scarf to bed a few nights a week, wear it every night. Being consistent will help your hair get used to a healthy hair regimen.
