What is your hair routine? Better yet, do you even have one? 🤔 If the answer is 'No,' then Houston, we have a problem! Your routine should consist of a wash day where you wash, condition, and moisturise your afro. How frequently you wash your hair should be weekly to bi-weekly, using moisture-boosting products that will bring your hair to life.
Kinky hair needs lots of oil. You should have a go-to oil that is part of your routine. It is used to moisturize your hair and seal in your other products for them to work efficiently. Your product supple should consist of coconut oil, black castor oil, jojoba oil, or Baobab oil. Gently massage the oil into your scalp to get the blood circulating and to open up the follicles.
