Summer comes with a lot of changes in the weather and your hair expects you to keep it safe. Here are a few tips on how to care for your natural hair and maintain it.
Hot and humid times
In this hot and humid season styling your hair will be easy if you use light products. These products will make your hair light and fluffy and reduce buildup especially as we sweat during the day. An example can be the Vatika Afro Naturals Curl defining Crème. The crème can be mixed with the hair lotion to achieve a good 2 in 1 approach that saves time. The product will leave your hair feeling big and light.
Hot and wet days
Summer is known for being the wet season and rain tends to be an enemy for natural hair. Sometimes it also gets so hot that you may want to jump in the pool and cool off but your hair makes you think twice. Here is a solution that is cheap and wise, costing your hair with essential oils is such a clever idea. Oil works as a sealant that prevents wetness but traps moisture. ORS Black castor oil works undeniable magic. The oil is good for your hair and promotes growth and thickness. Coat your hair in oil and the damage from water will not be as detrimental as we expected it to be
Rain and braids
Braids are easy to maintain but they become problematic when they get rained on and are not dried properly or treated with the right spray. Long & Lasting braid and lock spray or ORS black castor braid spray are good for braids especially after you have dried them off or just for maintenance. Remember braid also need to be cleaned and these products are part of the cleaning crew.
After experiencing all the above changes in weather and conditions your hair will need some support and care. Wash day is important so I suggest the following a nice shampooing with Vatika Afro Naturals Shampoo that has black soap, good deep conditioning is also essential and very important and lastly detangle your hair and avoid breakage by using ORS curls Unleashed Leave-in conditioner.
If you follow the tips and tricks above your summer will be great and your hair will thank you. Caring for natural hair is simple all you need is the right type of product to cater to the different changes and needs that may present.
