In this article, we'll explore six actionable tips to help you combat natural hair breakage and achieve the lush locks you've always wanted.

  1. Moisturize Regularly:

    Detangling natural hair can be a daunting task, but it's crucial to do it with care to prevent breakage. Always detangle hair when it's damp and saturated with conditioner to minimize friction and breakage. Opt for our Tailored Beauty Start Coconut Creme Conditioner with Mango Butter on wash days. The conditioner is a blends of coconut oil, olive oil, and mango butter which are perfect for replenishing dry hair. Our conditioner is derived from natural sources and never contains parabens or sulfates. Once your hair is soaked with conditioner, start by finger-detangling to remove knots and tangles gently. Then, use a wide-tooth comb or a detangling brush starting from the ends and working your way up to the roots.

  3. Protective Styling:
    Protective styles such as braids, twists, and updos can help shield your hair from environmental stressors and manipulation, reducing the risk of breakage. You can do protective styles such as braids with extensions, and/or even wigs. Or, style your hair in simple protective styles such as mini twists, mini braids, low buns. When opting for protective styles, ensure they're not too tight, as this can cause tension and breakage along the hairline and edges. Additionally, don't leave protective styles in for too long; aim to give your hair regular breaks to rest and rejuvenate.

  4. Avoid Heat Damage:
    Excessive heat styling can weaken the hair shaft and lead to breakage, especially for natural hair types. Minimize the use of heat tools such as flat irons, curling wands, and blow dryers, and always use a heat protectant spray when heat styling is unavoidable. Embrace heat-free styling methods like twist-outs, bantu knots, and flexi rods to achieve beautiful curls and waves without risking damage. Opt for our Tailored Beauty Cul Antidote Cream. It will provide a soft hold for your hair while giving you the volume you desire.

  5. Nourish from Within: Healthy hair starts from the inside out, so be mindful of your diet and lifestyle habits. Ensure you're consuming a balanced diet rich in essential nutrients like protein, vitamins, and minerals, which are vital for promoting hair health and growth. Consider incorporating foods (or supplements) rich in biotin, collagen, vitamin B, omega-3 fatty acids to support. These aid in repairing your hair's barrier so it's able to withstand mechanical, chemical or even heat damage. Don't forget to stay hydrated by drinking plenty water.
