#2 Gentleness is the Key

Your hair wants to be treated gently. Be kind to your hair and wash it properly on a regular basis. For African American women, this means washing your hair only once a week, max.

#3 Be Specific

Use hair care products designed specifically for Black hair. Your natural hair can be more delicate and drier than other hair types. These products are specially designed for your natural hair so use them.

#4 Use A Good Conditioner

Every time that you shampoo your hair, use a really good conditioner. Be sure to get the conditioner all the way down to the tips of your hair since the ends of the hair are the most fragile.

#7 Stay Away from Heat

Your natural black hair can damage easily and one of the top offenders is heat. Heat styling tools will diminish your natural color and make your hair look dry and damaged.

#8 Heat Massage

Yes, I said to stay away from heat but that is for styling tools, not hot oil massages. Hot oil gives your hair the nutrients it needs to grow beautifully. Some good oils to use are: coconut, almond, alma and eucalyptus.

#10 Pain Equals Damage

It doesn’t matter if you are styling your hair into weaves or cornrows, stop immediately if you feel pain. Tell your hairdresser to stop and redo the section that is causing you discomfort because pain alerts you that your hair is being damage.
