Set up a Schedule ๐Ÿ“† to Deep Condition Your Hair

Whether you're transitioning from a perm or have been natural for years, deep conditioning your hair is really important. It will moisturize your hair and prevent breakage down the line. I usually deep condition my hair every two weeks but I know people who do it weekly.

2

Comb out Your Hair ๐Ÿ’‡ While It's Still Wet

Because my hair is really thick, combing it out while I'm washing ๐Ÿšฟ it is the best way to get rid of tangles. I've also noticed that it reduces shrinkage, which is always a plus! You can also use detangling shampoo and conditioner

3

Coconut Oil is the Holy Grail ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’

Coconut oil stops a bad hair day BEFORE it happens. Seriously, it helps your hair stay hydrated and gets rid of flakes. It also rejuvenates damaged hair. You can apply it to your scalp and hair before or after washing ๐Ÿšฟ it. Full ๐Ÿˆต disclosure: I may not have hot sauce in my bag like Beyoncรฉ but I do always have coconut oil ๐Ÿ˜‰.

Never Underestimate the Power of a Good Twist out ๐Ÿ‘Š

Girls, this is the golden rule. I have really thick and curly hair, which is why my go-to hairstyle is a twist out or braid out. I usually just divide my hair into two quick french braids, add coconut oil and let it set as I sleep. That way I can just wake up and be ready to go!

5

Give Your Hair a Break from That Blow Dryer ๐Ÿ“ข

If your hair is more prone to breakage, avoid using a blow dryer ๐Ÿ“ข to dry your hair. Instead, separate your hair into box braids and let it dry naturally. Here's an added bonus: When you comb it out later, your curl pattern will be more defined.

Turn Heads with a Braided Look ๐Ÿ’‹

When I'm pressed for time, my go-to look is french braids with a beat face. They're super low maintenance and can be dressed up or down. Honestly, I have a short attention span with the patience to match so I can't always be bothered trying out an overly complicated style.

7

Hair Care Starts from the Bottom up ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘† AKA Your Pillowcase

Rest your head on a silk or satin pillowcase like the queen ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿ‘ธ you are. This will prevent your hair from drying out as you sleep, especially if you're like me and you often forget to wrap your hair at night.

How do you keep your gorgeous hair looking bomb?
