Your Natural Hair after sixty
Going natural isn’t always the easiest decision to make.
First, I encourage you to learn how to take care of your new head of super coily, silky curly short, water wavy and sometimes dry hair. Just realize it may be a substantial physical transition. Going natural can become your new challenge. But as it can be challenging, it is just as rewarding once you know your texture and how to use the right products for your particular hair type.
It would be a great time to reinvent yourself with a new year approaching. Remember, just because natural can mean chemical-free and to another with some chemical manipulation for ease of styling. It’s all good. You just do what makes sense to you and works for your lifestyle.
If you are looking to go natural here are some tips:
- Get to know your texture and tailor your routine to this texture type.
- Be patient; natural hair may take a longer time to style.
- Use products that keep the hair hydrated, healthy, and manageable.
- Wash and condition your hair in sections to cut down on tangles.
- Use a sulfate free shampoo and a petrolatum/mineral oil free moisturizer to cut down on dryness.
- Be careful when using heating appliances.
- Remember to protective style at night i.e slik head scarf or pillow case.
Follow these tips, and they can help alleviate some frustration when wearing your natural crown. Just keep working with it.
