Coily kinky afro, who does not love a good looking Afro? Your afro can be the envy of all but keeping it looking stunning takes some work. Here is some helpful tips to keep your afro or natural curls in check.
This is the number one tip as natural hair tend to lack moisture, so to avoid dry dull looking hair. Invest in a good moisturising condition.
DIY hair therapy
Keeping your hair well moisturised can be as simple as mixing your own hot oil treatment. For an overnight treatment mix olive oil, coconut oil, and shea butter, melt them all together in the microwave and then massage onto your scalp, then seal your hair, with a shower cap and cover with your head scarf. Wash it out the next morning for moisturised and smooth, frizz-free curls.
Drying your hair:
Squeeze-dry your hair with a t-shirt or microfiber towel as this will decrease frizz. Then detangle with your fingers as this will help keep your hair texture without interrupting your curl pattern.
Use a silk pillowcase or silk scarf to avoid frizz and keep your curls in place
