This series follows natural hair journey and provides solutions for coping with natural hair.
It does not matter if you started keeping natural hair when you were a kid or transitioned into keeping natural hair, it is important to take special attention and care of your natural hair.
These are some mistakes you might make along the way.
Not trimming your hair
You should always trim your natural hair. Your hair looks healthier after a trim because you remove split ends and it lets your hair grow into a good length.
In a bid to have shining and smooth hair, you might end up over-oiling your hair. Over oiling can cause scalp irritation, build-up and dandruff.
Build up of products would have your hair looking dry, dull and limp.
Also using petroleum and synthetic oil like mineral oil, isopropyl alcohol is bad for your hair. Shea butter, avocado oil and coconut oil is the way to go.
Using too many products
There is a chance you might buy too many products. Using too many products can cause breakouts, dry strands and product build-up.
Not moisturizing your hair

You can deep condition your hair, use the loc method or steam your hair. Deep conditioning promotes elasticity, and make your hair grows longer.
You might have to go to a natural hair salon for deep conditioning.
