Hair care: Homemade cares for curly and afro hair

Hello pretty women,
Only  who those have a curly hair or afro hair know how it is hard  to take care of them. So many women with this type of hair choose to straighten them for the ease of caring of straight hair. And this excess chemical products end up for leaving the hair very thin, brittle hair, dull and unhealthy, and many times leads to hair loss and reducing the hair volume. I been there, done that!!!!
Check out some tips I prepared for you. I hope you like it.

Keep curls defined with curly activator. Keep the product in the bag and spray it in your time to time throughout the day.

Combat the dryness  doing weekly hydration. Prefer the wheat amino acids masks and shea butter.

If you want to dry your naturally, all right: just apply leave-in for the curls hair in damp hair.

Use a cosmetic volume reducer based on aloe vera and proteins - retains moisture and tames the hair.

Wash hair once a week or every other week: This will help prevent build-up of hair care products, which can be drying to the hair.

Use conditioner: Use conditioner every time you wash your hair. Be sure to coat the ends of the hair with conditioner, as the ends are the oldest and most fragile part of your hair.

Use a hot oil treatment twice a month: This adds additional moisture and elasticity to your hair.
Use a heat protecting product before styling: Adding this to wet hair before styling will help minimize heat damage.

Use caution with relaxers: To minimize hair damage, always go to a professional hair stylist to ensure that the relaxer is applied safely. Touch-ups should only be done every two to three months and only to newly grown hair. Never apply relaxer to hair that has already been relaxed.

Use ceramic combs or irons to press hair: If you would like to press or thermally straighten your hair, use a ceramic comb or iron and only do so once a week. Use a straightening device with a dial to ensure the device is not too hot. Use the lowest possible temperature setting that gives you the style you want. A higher temperature may be necessary for thicker, coarser hair.
Make sure braids, cornrows or weaves are not too tight: If it hurts while your hair is being styled, ask the stylist to stop and redo it. Pain equals damage.
