How To Maintain Healthy Locks



I’m often asked “how can I have healthy hair?” or “how can I get my hair to grow faster?” So I came up with a few ways to help with both:

1. Use a hair towel that doesn’t cause breakage. Most hair towels act as velcro causing breakage and frizz. My favorite hair wrap from Huablou made of 100% Rayon from Bamboo. These lightweight wraps help hold curl together, provide lift and volume to lifeless hair, and significantly reduce drying time which can be a life saver to those who have thick hair. You see, hair is most fragile when wet; hudrogen bonds are broken down when hair is wet and reform when dried. This is how hair can be reshaped into different patterns. So my best tip for maintaining healthy hair is to use a hair towel (much like a soft t-shirt) to reduce breakage and promote healthy locks. The hubalou comes in many fun colors and can be tied numerous ways.


2. Only wash your hair when necessary. At least every other day. You can use a dry shampoo between washes if necessary. My favorite is One Love Organic's Healthy Locks. I find it works best when applied at night. The powder absorbs the oil over night  and you aren't left clean looking and smelling hair without any powdery residue.

3. While in the shower, after shampooing your hair, clip your hair with conditioner while you finish your shower. The heat will open the cuticle which will encourage the condoner to generate further into your hair. Then rinse in cool water to seal the cuticle. If your hair is very damaged use a deep conditioning treatment weekly or bi-weekly.

4. Use the wet brush to get out tangles while your hair is still wet, or if you’re like me, you can skip brushing your hair all together while wet.

5. Trim your ends and layers regularly. I have simple videos on Youtube where you can do this yourself at home.
