Taking care of naturally curly hair can be quite an intensive task, I know some ladies that have a really crazy regime of taking care of their natural curls. I must admit that I can be very lazy when it comes to taking care of my curls but I try. It is that laziness that sometimes leave my hair dry and then needs some extra care to get it back to healthy and moisturised curls.
Here are some of my favourite hair treatments
Applying olive oil to my hair before I was it and then letting it sit under a plastic cap for about 45minutes before washing my hair. This why you give the oil to completely absorb into the hair follicles. Olive oil also improves the strength and elasticity of your hair.
Mayonnaise and Avocado Conditioner for dry and frizzy hair.
Make your own: Mix 1 cup of mayonnaise with 1/2 avocado until you have a paste. Rub it on your hair and cover your head with a plastic cap.
Wrap a hot towel around it. Leave it on for 20 minutes and wash. Try to repeat this treatment once a week for great results.
Then there are some treatments that I like to leave overnight on my hair, which are the Argan oil hair mask. There are a variety of Argan oil mask, but I like the one in picture below, which I bought in the Euro pound store. This mask is enriched with proteins, Kertain and infused with Argan oil.
Just make sure to cover your hair with a plastic cap and a head scarf, keeping it nice and warm allowing the treatment to work its magic. This treatment restores elasticity, improves hair texture and makes hair easy to manage.
Boots Coconut & Almond Intensive Hair Mask. I also like to leave this one overnight for soft, moisture hair in the morning.
If I want something quick, then there is the 1minute treatment from Garnier- Ultimate blends sleek restorer for frizzy hair. Love this one, leaves my hair smelling nice, soft and frizz free Best part is I can apply it while in the shower and just rinse it off when I am done and I am ready to go.
