Do Weekly Scalp Treatments
It’s important to keep your new hair that’s growing from the roots moisturized. A good moisturizing treatment includes, argan oil and Moroccan red clay powder. This idea comes courtesy Christiana Greene, founder and curator of online vintage shop BUM-CAKE vintage.
Get yourself some hair sheers from your local beauty supply store, style your hair as usual and then go curl by curl snipping off the tips that feel rough. Perfect way to do up keep between salon visits.
Give your hair a healthy dose of nutrients with a protein treatment. This is a great way to strengthen strands.
Scrunch Your Hair
After you shower, flip your hair, scrunch out excess liquid, then continue to lightly scrunch. This gives your curls bounce and volume.
Regularly deep condition your hair because curly hair usually needs more moisture. Add conditioner, cover your hair with a shower cap and let it sit for at least 30 minutes. You can do this once a week.
Braid Before Bed
If you want to avoid frizz, try braiding your hair every night before bed.
