    Natural hair care tips for beginners​​​​​ 1. Keep your hair moisturized This is a vital tip for natural hair to grow long and healthy hair. A conditioner is necessary for natural hair especially dry and brittle hair every time you wash your hair. Apply the conditioner mainly to the ends of the hair and leave it for 2-3 minutes, then properly wash it off. It's advisable to use a deep conditioner every 2-3 weeks. Use it according to the instructions on the package; it will help keep your hair soft.   2. Oil Your Hair Frequently Naturally, afro hair needs lots of oil. Oils should be part of your everyday natural routine. Oils play a vital role in ensuring that your natural hair stays healthy. Oils can be used to moisturize your hair or seal in already existing moisture, depending on the type of oil. Examples of oils you could use are: -Avocado oil -Coconut oil -Olive oil -Almond oil -Jojoba oil -Castor oil   3. Trim your hair every once in a while.  Although your main goal is to grow long hair, however, that split ends slow down natural hair growth. Every 2 to 3 months (or even more often) it is necessary to do a haircut to keep the hair in good condition.   4. Protect the ends of the hair The ends can quickly get damaged. The tips of the hair are the usually the most  fragile part of your hair. This is because they get the least amount of natural oils.  Leaving your hair constantly loose, you expose it to various injuries, so try to pick up hair to prevent it. Tie your hair with a hairpin. If possible, do not use different hair scrunchies, because you can damage or tear the hair when you use them.   5. Sleep With A Satin Bonnet or pillowcase.  Satin keeps your hair from tangling and breaking while you sleep. It's advisable to invest in a satin bonnet or pillowcase. Sleeping with loose hair on a cotton pillowcase will lead to dry hair and hair breakage, because of the friction with cotton. A satin bonnet pillowcase is usually gentler on the hair and helps to maintain your hair’s moisture.    7. Avoid using heat on your natural hair.  Unlike other hair types, afro hair is fragile. There's a higher risk of hair damage depending on how often you apply heat to your natural hair. This is why hair driers and straighteners should be avoided except when necessary. Next time you want to dry your afro curls, put down your hairdryer, don't use it. You could air-dry it instead  It protects your 'fro from excessive hair breakage.   These are the tips I've been able to come up with for now. Stay tuned for more.

    INTRODUCTION TO NATURAL HAIR For most millennials, icons like Diana Ross, the Jackson 5, Alisha keys, and Bob Marley - just to mention a few, were figureheads of style and culture for the black people. They had massive influence on fashion, music and over time what has become a movement for natural hair. These people, one would say, saw the bigger picture before it was glaring in the faces of others. They stood by their roots and connected with their ancestral African origin the best way they could - through their hair. The significance of these little acts was not really felt till later days. Today, with the great controversy surrounding the natural hair and its community, we understand why their connecting with their roots was important to them. What is the natural hair movement? The big bang on natural hair came about in 2009 when the movie “Good hair” by Chris Rock was released. This movie cleared the air on the long battle revolving around the meaning attached to the word “Nappy”. The movement was adopted quickly by many black people, and gradually deeper meanings and bigger controversies were birthed from it. The natural hair movement was not created to bring about division of the human race but rather to bring together individuals of similar ancestral origin to the point of unification. Why natural hair? When asked this question, most people are not sure why they choose to wear their hair natural. The inability to answer this question sufficiently has led to poorly told reports. A while ago a writeup was released stating boldly that women with natural hair struggle greatly with insecurities and low self-esteem. This is rather untrue. For the most part, people - men and women, who carry their hair natural do it for the love of their hair. Chemically neutral hair has proven to be healthier and its styles last longer than relaxed hair. Most people choose to go natural not because they want to fight or stand with a course, but because they genuinely love the texture and beauty of their kinky nappy hair. At the end of the day, the decision to grow one's natural hair should not be based on the opinion of others or the pressures of the society. It should be from genuine interest and love for the black kinky hair. Growing your natural hair is not just an aspect of your life, it’s a journey you embark on. It’s a lesson learning and beauty defining journey. And it should be done with the fullness and wholeness of one’s heart.
