We’re excited to start this blog series and hope that it will help you better understand your skin and equip you with advice to help you better take care of your skin. With that said, welcome to the first installment of #softestskinever! :)
In the process of taking care of your hair, you will likely apply a range of products, oils and butters to your hair on a daily basis. While some ingredients are easily absorbed, others are not so easily absorbed by your hair and scalp. Because of this, it is very important to regularly wash your hair and scalp. So, today’s blog post will cover exactly that - we will let you in on the best practices to follow while washing your hair.
As covered in last week's blog post "Why your natural hair is dry and what you can do about it!", applying natural oils to your hair is a very effective method to combat dryness. In today's blog post, we will share the important elements of a COMPLETE regime!
The magic formula: daily moisturising = a healthy scalp + happy hair = hair growth + hair retention!
To simplify it for you all, Afro hair is at the end of the "class system" and has the tightest kinks of all categories. This makes Afro hair strands very fragile. If your hair coils up and forms a teeny-weeny Afro when wet, collect your number and take a seat - this series is for you.
Shea butter is also an African original like Ose Dudu, African black soap. It is a natural fat extracted from the nut of the Shea nut tree which grows in the equatorial region of Central and Western Africa. Nigeria is the leading producer of Shea butter in the world, followed by Ghana. Pure unrefined butter is slightly yellow or white ivory in colour, and has a characteristic nutty-smoky scent.
