Tips to Take Care of Kinky Curls

Although it seems that you are devoting the majority of your time in the shower to rinsing and washing your hair, there are a ton of tips and tricks that will make your hair journey bearable and more enjoyable.

Using Satin or Silk Scarf or Pillowcase

Wrapping your hair in satin or silk scarf can prevent it against further breakage, due to less friction between your hair and pillow. 

Moreover, this will also leave your hair soft, moisturized, and tangle-free by maintaining the natural oils in your tresses. 

"Sleeping on a cotton pillowcase will cause hair to bunch, knot, and get staticky. On a soft silk pillowcase, however, hair will slide, which is much less damaging," New York City salon owner John Corbett, told Everydayhealth.com.

Finger Combing

It may sound so complicated and appears to be a lot of work, but it will be beneficial to you in the long run. 

Detangling hair using fingers will lessen the breakage caused by the constant tugging and pulling by brush or combs. 

Furthermore, it is a more gentle technique, allowing you to feel the tension on the strands of your hair.

Choosing the Right Products 

Shampoos and conditioner play a vital role in keeping our manes at its best behavior. 

Opting for natural products will also make your hair healthy, strong and less frizzy.

Next time you go to the market, look for products with ingredients such as keratin, shea butter, panthenol, provitamin and natural or essential oils like jojoba oil, sunflower oil, coconut oil, and avocado oil.
