Healthy hair is something that every woman wants. So, here are some general tips for regrowing and maintaining lustrous tresses.
1. Educate yourself on proper hair-care. Buy relevant books, follow expert blogs and YouTubers, etc. However, if you are dealing with hair loss or thinning, make sure to consult a dermatologist at the first sign. Also, choose your hairstylist carefully. A good hair stylist will educate you on what they are doing to your hair and how to properly care for it.
2. Limit the use of Heat. The everyday use of heat appliances like curling irons and flat irons can lead to dried out hair. If your hair is severely damaged, then try not to use a lot of heat on the hair (if possible totally avoid it). This includes hot water, flat irons, hot curling irons, or hot blow dryers. How about going back to Roller Setting your hair? But, instead of using the Hair Dryer, maybe just allow it to air dry.
3. Prevent over-processing. For touch-ups, apply relaxer to new growth only. To prevent breakage, go no longer than three months between touch-ups.
4. Treat your hair and scalp. Gentle scalp massages and hot oil treatments can be effective to combat dryness and to stimulate hair follicles for regrowth. Try any of our natural hair loss treatments, including our Jamaican Black Castor Oil Hair Treatment with tea oil or Jamaican Black Castor Oil - No Additives.
5. Trim ends regularly. You should get a trim every six to eight weeks to prevent split ends.
6. Cleanse. Be sure to keep your hair and scalp clean. And thoroughly rinse your hair, as build up can leave a film and rob moisture and sheen. Many hair-care experts and enthusiasts even believe in limiting the use of shampoo; using an effective conditioner alone in-between the occasional shampoo, instead. Do what works best for your hair type and texture.
7. Handle wet hair with care. Use a wide tooth comb to de-tangle hair, starting from the ends up to the roots.
8. Oil your scalp sparingly. Use only a dime size amount of pomade or oil on your scalp. Using more than that will clog your pores. Try Olde Jamaica's Black Castor Oil Pomade or Herbal Gro Pomade as a hair grease.
9. Carefully care for your edges. Whether you have a perm, natural hair, transitioning, braids, locks or twists, take special care of your edges because they are vulnerable to breakage. Try Olde Jamaica's Black Castor Oil Pomade to help stimulate hair follicles, repair and maintain healthy edges.
10. Wrap it up while you sleep. Use a silk or satin scarf to wrap your hair at night. Some experts even suggest sleeping with a satin pillow case, just in case your scarf comes off while sleeping. This is because cotton pillow cases tend to dry the moisture out of the hair.
