Love your natural hair? Well, so do we!
There’s a current movement for taking care of ourselves in more natural ways, and we want you to love the hair you have! To give you a little help, we’ve got a few tips that will help you keep those beautiful afro locks looking and feeling their absolute best.
Curly, textured hair tends to be drier than straighter hair types because it's difficult for the natural oils produced by the scalp to travel down the length of the hair shaft. A great fix? Adding co-washing (ie. conditioning-washing) to your haircare routine. Co-washing is washing your hair with conditioner alone, which helps seal in the moisture and create nourished curls and waves.
Our Avocado Co-wash is made with fresh avocado, extra virgin olive oil and cider vinegar, so you can wash your hair without stripping it of its natural oils. It creates a silky, moisturizing lather with a burst of lime and sweet bergamot oil scent.
To rehydrate dry hair, try R&B Hair Moisturizer. It’s a thick leave-in moisturizer developed specifically for curly, textured hair that's packed with oils and butters to restore your hair to its natural beauty. Add a small amount to your fingers and scrunch in.
Top tip: when applying conditioner and moisturizer, avoid overloading the hair by tipping the head upside down and working it through the center and back first before working through to the front.
Treat it with a treatment
Hair can be damaged by the environment and hair styling, so it's important to give it the right kind of care. Put moisture back and restore its strength by using a hair treatment regularly. H'Suan Wen Hua, for example, is full of protein-rich and nourishing ingredients such as bananas and avocados to revive your hair and improve its condition.
When using a towel after washing, be careful not to use a harsh towel or dry roughly. A microfiber towel or soft cotton material can help prevent damage.
Think about protective styling. Wrapping hair in a silky scarf also helps retain moisture and avoids any damage brought about by styling. It's a style on its own: just wrap and go!
For defined curls, tie hair up at night and spritz it when loosened with Eau Roma Water made with soothing lavender water and balancing rose water.
To keep the volume in an afro hairstyle, carry a comb (its length will depend on the length of your hair) so you can take care of it regularly.
Top tip: always use a metal comb, as plastic ones can snap easily.
