Dealing with natural hair can come with its own set of challenges.
However, with the right techniques and products, you can care for your hair and keep it looking healthy and beautiful. In this article, we'll discuss some of the most common natural hair challenges and how to address them.
One of the most common challenges for natural hair is dryness.
Our hair has to be manually moisturized using various products such as Tailored Beauty Moisture Penetrating Leave-in Conditioner and/or Tailored Beauty Moisture Penetrating Deep Conditioner. Both product are formulated with ayurvedic ingredients which are needed to penetrate the hair shaft to impart hydration. Also, water is the first ingredient in both products. Water is the best hydrator for our curls as our hair will easily absorb the water. As well as, avoid styles and techniques that will dry your hair out. You do not need to overmanipulate your hair with combing your hair everyday And more importantly, leaving your hair exposed at nights but not sleeping with a satin cap.
Natural hair is also prone to breakage, which can be caused by a number of factors, including dryness, lack of proper care, and using the wrong products. Firstly, you should be using Tailored Beauty products as it formulated with organic ingredients that are safe for all ages over 12 months. Next, you should be using the best tools and techniques to maintain the health of your hair. You should be using a wide tooth comb to detangle your hair from the tips to roots. As well as, avoiding or minimizing the use of heat in your natural hair care regimen to retain length and health of your hair.
Lack of curl definition:
We all want our curls to be extremely defined, glowing and long-lasting. The best way to get the definition is by using a styler that has the maximum hold needed for your hair type and texture. Our Tailored Beauty Perfect Coils Curling Jelly is exactly what you need.
Spoil your curls with a natural blend of Honey, Jamaican Black Castor Oil, Rosemary, Horsetail and other fine botanical ingredients. It is great for defining wash n gos, twistouts, braidouts, bantu knot outs, perm rod sets and other textured hair styles. As well as your technique matters as well to train your curls to curl the way you want. You can check out our previous blog post on how to get your natural hair extremely defined!
Natural hair can also be prone to an itchy scalp which is caused by a buildup of dead skin cells on the scalp. An itchy scalp will become annoying as there are times when you don't want to scratch your scalp in public. The best solution is by using products formulated with essential oils. Essential oils contain anti-microbial and anti-septic properties to heal the scalp to prevent this annoying itch. Also, these oils will stimulate the scalp to encourage your hair to grow. As well as, it increases sebum production which is needed to nourish the hair at the roots.
Ultimately, the key to caring for natural hair is to find a routine that works for you and to use products that are appropriate for your hair type. With the right care, your natural hair can be healthy and beautiful.
