Here are a few tips to take care of your hair while trying out any of these black natural hairstyles. Like we mentioned earlier, African American hair can be extremely fragile and prone to damage.
Here is some easy advice to follow:
- Wash your hair once a week to help prevent the buildup of hair care products. Use conditioner every time you wash it and coat the ends since this is the most delicate part of your hair.
- Treat your hair to a hot oil treatment twice a month. This will add moisture and elasticity.
- Before styling, always use a heat protector to minimize damage.
- Make sure weaves, braids, or cornrows aren’t on too tight. If it’s painful, you can expect damage! If your hair feels too tight, ask your stylist to stop and redo it.
