7 Steps To Manage Your Natural Hair

Natural hair is a beautiful thing to have and embrace. We are here to help you through the journey of how to manage your natural hair. African American hair is different and unique. It is managed and taken care of differently. Your hair is mostly brittle and dry. So, your wash, but not so frequently.

We have listed below what all needs to be done for your hair



Washing hair once a week or once every other week. This is because you need to wash off the buildup if any. Your hair is generally dryer and brittle. So, you need to choose a shampoo that is good for your hair and helps keeps the moisture in.



Conditioning is key. You need to condition your hair more often than not because your hair is inherently dry. Using a leave-in conditioner and a cream helps your hair have better moisture and more defined curls. African Pride twist and loc smoothie is one such product which you can use for your hair. Shea butter is a natural detangling cream. So, no more pulling on the curls.



Hot oil therapy for your hair at least twice a month is great. Hot oil or more essentially warm oil massage is great for making your hair retain extra moisture and also making its elasticity better. The oil massages help in making sure your hair has extra nourishment and also makes its elasticity better. Oil helps your hair be more pliable and also softer.



Protect your hair when you style it. This is should be set in stone because if you do not put a heat protectant oil or cream it will make your hair extremely dry, brittle and more prone to damage. Heat protectant also locks moisture in your hair, so it's even better to use it once before you heat style your hair and once its done, to give it a double protection.



Ceramic combs and irons are a much better choice than any other products. These heat styling tools damage your hair, so their frequency of use should be less. Use it sparingly, maybe once a week. Always make sure you have put enough conditioner, leave-in and a heat protectant to save your hair from damage. Depending on your hair type, try a lower temperature at all times. It is less harsh on your hair. Thicker or coarse hair might require higher temperatures, so in these cases, it’s advised you alternate between high and low temperatures.



These are predominantly perfect for your hair, but they cause more damage than good. The tighter your cornrows, braids or weaves are the more damage they are causing to your hair and your scalp. They are so tightly pulled and braided that your scalp stops having a sense of feeling after a while, this restricts blood flow to your scalp and stops hair growth. Tighter they are the more your hair becomes brittle and break easily.



Clarifying your hair once or twice a month is a good idea. Use a chelating shampoo which deeply cleans your product build-up and makes sure that your hair is squeaky clean. These shampoos are different than your regular shampoos. The regular shampoo cleanses and just washes off most of the dirt and some of the product. A clarifying shampoo deep cleans and makes sure your pores are open so as to allow your hair to grow and have better health. The shea miracle twist and loc smoothie is a great cream to apply to your hair after clarifying. It retains the moisture and also helps your hair be softer and shinier.


Your hair will take time to be understood so keep at it. Figure out what works for you. Try a few different techniques and make sure you are consistent in figuring out your hair type and what works for you. Your hair can be especially tricky so its fine to be lost, that’s why we have written this article for you to understand, comprehend and make an informed decision for your journey to embrace your natural hair.
