Caring for your natural hair should take into consideration the following hair care routine steps. 

  1. Deep Condition.Caring for natural hair means deep conditioning your hair at least twice per week. Select a great moisturizing conditioner that will cause your hair to soak in all the moisture it requires to hold the perfect moisture balance throughout your hair strands.
  1. Sulphate-Free Shampoo. The beauty of natural hair is embraced through gaining knowledge of the makeup of natural hair. The truth is natural hair tends to be dry; it's essential to select a shampoo that will not cause further drying effects but rather encourage moisture. Sulfate-free shampoos cleanse the hair effectively without extensively stripping the hair of natural essential oils that keep it healthy. 
  1. Protein Treatment. A conditioner fortified with protein-rich ingredients will add strength to the hair strands and protect them from breakage. This should be done once a month. Maintaining the perfect moisture-protein balance is key to caring for and embracing your natural hair. 
  2. Incorporate water-based moisturizer and natural oil.Moisture is best absorbed by using moisturizers daily that has a great water content which causes it to penetrate the hair instead of sitting on the top layer of the hair. Natural oils work at sealing in the moisture imparted to keep it from becoming dry.
