CURLY HAIR TIPS !



Hello ladies!

I came across a great article over at naturally curly.com.   From a fellow fabulous natural by the name of Evelyn.  There she shared some really great tips from every thing to heat damage , to dry hair.  Here is just a bit of what she says:

The Flat Iron Fiasco

You decided to try something new—a straight style! But come wash day, you noticed your hair hasn’t rebounded back to its tight, springy coils. You shake your head in disbelief, fighting back some of the most painful words in your natural hair journey: heat damage. Put the hair shears away! It might not be permanent.

Solution:

Deep condition! Heat clamps down the cuticle of the hair, not allowing any moisture in. It may take a while for the moisture to reach your hair and revert. Use a moisturizing deep conditioner and let your hair sit under a steamer or shower cap for 30 minutes. You may even have to do this over several days to train it back into its natural curl pattern.  To prevent this in the future, make sure you do protein treatments to strengthen your hair.

Until next time , stay naturally fabulous !
