1: Wash Your Hair Once A Week
Do you really need to wash your hair every morning and night? Over washing your hair with shampoos, conditioners and whatever else you decide to put in it may give you short term good looks, but it can cause long term damage. The more you wash your hair the more brittle and damaged it becomes. It may sound crazy, but experts agree that washing your hair once a week is more than enough. Nutress and Cantu have a whole range of shampoos and conditioners that are made for African American hair.
2: Condition Your Hair Every Few Days
While giving your hair a good washing once a week is great. Experts agree that in between this, like every three to five days. Giving your hair a good workout with a high quality conditioner (one that is made for hair like yours) is a great way to help keep in all your hairs natural moisture. Now you do not just jump in the shower and start lathering your hair up like a maniac. You want to be far more deliberate about it.
Do not focus on the scalp. Instead, push the conditioner all the way to the ends. If you want to kick it up a notch, think about giving your hair a deep conditioning mask. Yes, this is not cheap, but once or twice a month can make a heck of a difference.
