Some of the main priorities when looking after Afro hair at home with children is building a regime that works for you and your lifestyle. Creating a regime for your hair and beauty needs, helps you figure out what works and what doesn’t. This regime should include cleansing your scalp to keep it clean to encourage healthy hair growth, moisturising and some level of protective styling.
It is important to keep Afro hair hydrated as dryness increases breakage of the hair. So it is important to use an oil based product to seal the moisture in. Some of these products include olive oil, coconut oil, castor oil and jojoba oil.
Protective styles can be in the form of braids, twists and weaves. However, even with these it is important you clean and moisturised your hair every 6-8 weeks.
Simple styles like updos and buns works well for when you are at home or generally popping out with the children. Also you can tie a ponytail of choice onto your bun. Other simple styles are flat twists as an alternative to cornrows.
As you may probably know your diet also impacts your hair quality and also your general health so make sure you are getting all the essential vitamins and top up if you need to with multivitamins.
