5 Tips for At-Home Hair Care Maintenance

Hair Styles For In-Between Hair Appointments

With the current state of the world and the COVID-19 pandemic, it may be a while before you can schedule your next hair appointment with your go-to hair stylist, but that doesn’t mean you can’t maintain those beautiful tresses on your own. We’ve gathered 5 at-home hair care maintenance tips to help you keep the locs looking lustrous and the curls looking buoyant. 

Don’t Overwash

Natural hair needs its natural oils. Shampoos (especially those that contain sulfates) strip the hair of moisture and leave your natural curls and kinks brittle. Washing 1-2x a week is okay, but don’t go longer than 2 weeks without washing.

Heat-free Hair Styles

Avoid excessive blow drying or heat-treated styles to keep those coils looking flawless and healthy. Use the t-shirt drying method to minimize frizz or let it air dry for a classic washngo.

We’re not just talking about drinking water (although equally as crucial). Keep your hair moisturized all day long. Wrap your hair in a silk scarf to lock in that moisture at night. Style with a lightweight product, to avoid buildup, for the daytime.

Healthy Habits

Good hair care begins with your diet. As cliché as it may sound – eat your vegetables. Vitamin deficiencies and unhealthy diets can result in dry, brittle hair. Drink lots of water, and exercise to reduce stress levels
