This TIPS are for my Relaxed friends that need to keep their HAIR HEALTHY!!
1) Be careful about cleansing
Relaxers can damage hair, causing it to lose its ability to retain moisture. Especially for black women, shampoos tend to strip away natural oils, so therefore, Hair should be washed at the salon once a week.
2)Reduce your amount of Heat-Intensive styling
Be careful not to over-style your hair through excessive blow-drying and setting hair. This can be done once a week especially after shampooing. For the first three days after getting your blow-set, you can finger comb your hair into place and pull it back for the rest of the week or style curl the ends with a curling iron.
Lots of Moisture
It is important to restore hair moisture, so therefore put a bit of hair grease on your fingertips and massage into scalp. Products that use mineral oil, are usually the best. To keep up the sleek-ness of the hair, it is important to deep condition regularly, using treatments that contain natural oils like avocado or shea butter. A treatment every two weeks is great!
