Natural Black Hair Summer Tips
Summer! It’s that time of year. I do not know about you, but I really like the warmer weather. For me, summer is a time to hang out in the yard with my family, go to the park, the beach and generally enjoying the pleasures of summer. Heat, sweat and salt water / chlorine can really dry your hair. Although I usually wear my hair natural curly in no more, I noticed that I keep my hair hydrated as much as possible during the hot summer months.
Here are some tips that I personally use to keep my hair curly natural fit:
Water is your best friend. Drink plenty of it to keep your body hydrated throughout. You will need those warm summer days. After washing your hair, saturate it with your favorite conditioner. It can be any air conditioner, as long as it works for your hair. I leave it resting on my head for about fifteen minutes, with or without plastic cap. Then I lightly rinse, making sure to leave some behind the conditioner. The remnants of my air conditioner coats hair and offers some protection against the summer sun. I let my hair air dry and find that it is soft to the touch.
Mayonnaise is not just for bread and tuna salad. Mayonnaise can be an excellent conditioner for hair, because eggs and oil in it. If your hair is naturally black dry and brittle, Mayo may be the solution you need. It is an inexpensive, effective conditioner. Try this recipe: Mash ½ ripe avocado and mix with a small pot (about 1 cup) mayonnaise real. Apply on hair and pop on a plastic cap. Leave the mixture for about 30 minutes (or more), then rinse thoroughly. This will leave your hair very soft and hydrated.
Use protective styles
As I wrote above, I used to rock a curly afro most of the time. The problem is, I often find that this style dry my hair the fastest. So what’s a natural doll to do? Read more.
Get rough and stuff with your Afro Puffs. I think Afro puffs may be a way of protection if you moisturize the ends carefully. Train your puffs of mist, water and rub a bit of 100% pure aloe vera gel on the ends. I found it easier to moisturize the ends in a cloud that ends in a moment and go.
Braids or cornrows. Braids do not always mean sitting in a room for three or four hours while someone pulls on the head. If this is your style, go ahead, but I can not stay so long! Try braiding your own hair into three or four braids and pin them in place. I can not cornrow to save my life, but for those who have this skill, I saw some beautiful models. The two styles that suit you well for pool and beach and most elegant too!
Twist and Shout. Although the natural hair of my daughter is not as thick as mine, hair still requires the same kind of attention. I like to put her hair into two strands twisted as soon as I finished washing and conditioning. Twists are cute, bouncy and can be migrated in a nice twist-out style. In addition, they are easy to make and quick to fill. Use aloe gel or a cream containing water for other developments.
Cover Me When walking the walk, go out in the backyard or take a walk in the heat, wear a hat. Not only is the hat keep you cool, but it will also protect your hair from the sun’s heat. The sun warms your hair like a hair dryer makes and can make it dry just as quickly. Wear a cute hat to keep the sun away.
