What your Hair Needs


What your hair needs

Hair is actually very simple we do alot of things to make it more complicated.  
Hair just need to be clean,  condition, & trimmed
Hair needs to be shampooed once or twice every 2 weeks or whenever you feel the hair is dirty. What people forget about is the skin underneath their hair called the scalp which is still part of the body and it needs to be cleaned just like how you clean your skin.  Think about all the things we do in a day and the environment we are in sometimes.  Our hair and scalp absorbs alot of that.  Therefore going a month or more without shampooing is not good for your hair or health.

Conditioning- We need to condition to soften the hair making it easier to moisturize.  Conditioner is like lotion for your hair stands making them more supple and smooth over time.  Curly girls need more conditioning than straight girl because due to the ringlets we have, things don't slide down the hair as quick.  The tighter your ringlets the harder it is.

Trims-  Yes they are needed.   Every hair needs trims whether you're natural or not.  Some stylist say it wrong...trims dont make your hair grow but it does help you maintain length.   How??? Because your hair split regardless. It's just part of the hair's cycle but you need trims to keep it under control.   I like to tell clients to get one every 3 to 4 months because it gives your hair time to grow and hopefully your damage shouldn't exceed your growth.   HOPEFULLY sometimes is does or can.  If you dont trim your splits will continue to go up therefore causing on going damage and thinning to the hair.

Of course,  use your styling product afterwards.   More key things use good quality shampoos and conditioners and don't wait too long to get trims.

  2. what's the easiets, most effective conditioning process you reccommend?

    I alternate between an egg, clear cellophane organic root stimulator's deep conditioner and the homeade one you demonstrated (although I sometimes forget all the ingredients).

    Also, conhratulations on the family addition.

    1. Thank you. You shouldn't do the egg too much protein can be very bad for the hair. clear cellophane just gives you are temporary coating and shine. Don't know much about organice root stimulator. Remember you don't need to overly deep condition your hair. It's more important to use a good quality shampoo and conditioner. Deep conditioning and deep conditioning without the proper maintenance will do you no good. Maintenance is cleaning your scalp and conditioning your hair. Easiest way is to deep condition with a moisturizing deep conditioner not protein once a month. If you live in a climate without alot of humidity and steamer will be a good addition.
