Are you ready to learn the basics of creating a natural hair regimen?
It’s normal for women who have recently went “natural” to have questions about their next steps. There are so many different products, methods and techniques out there claiming to be the solution to your hair problems. We all know that just because a certain product or technique works for one person, it might not work for you. Think of plants. Some plants grow faster than others or requires more water or nourishment in order for it to grow. Black hair is the same exact way.
The key to creating a good hair regimen is knowing your hair and finding what works. It’s going to take some experimenting at first, but I am going to provide you with a basic hair regimen that you can use to get started.
Once you know what products to use and how to use them for the best results, you’ll be amazed at how easy it is to manage your hair or your daughter’s hair. Here are some helpful tips:
Tip 1: Cleanse your hair weekly or bi-weekly.
As a general rule of thumb, it is best to wash natural hair types every two weeks. Again, this is just a general rule. Some people may find it best to wash their shampoo with shampoo once a week or once a month. Be sure to use a shampoo that is sulfate-free like our Grow & Flow Moisturizing Black Castor Shampoo. Air cleanses your hair without stripping your hair of all of its’ moisture.
Tip #2: Condition Weekly.
Our hair craves moisture. One of the main reasons why hair is not growing as quickly as we would like is because it’s dry and lacking moisture. Condition at least once a week for the best results. Let conditioner sit for at least 20 minutes before rinsing.
Tip #3: Detangle your hair. A good conditioner like the Grow & Flow Moisturizing & Detangling Conditioner will leave your hair feeling soft, moisturized, and detangled after just one use. Detangle your hair while the conditioner is still in to make it easier using a wooden wide-tooth comb. Wooden combs are much gentler on the hair.
Tip #4: Style Weekly or as Needed. Try protective styles that don’t need to be maintained daily. You could do Bantu knots, twist outs or braids. Try a style where you can leave your hair alone for at least a week.
Tip #5: Moisturize daily or as needed. Some people may need to moisturize daily while some people may only need to every few days. Rule of thumb: whenever your hair feels dry, apply moisture. It could be water or a product. You can try out our nourishing hair growth oil or moisture intensive leave in hair mist for daily moisture. For best results, massage our nourishing hair growth oil into your scalp for at least 60 seconds.
We recommend sticking with one hair product line for at least 3 months to track your progress. Try out your hair regimen for at least 30 days before deciding if you need to create a new regimen.
