Moisturize and Hydrate
Black hair tends to be dry, so moisture is key. After washing, use a leave-in conditioner or hair oil to keep your locks hydrated. Make sure to focus on the ends of your hair, where dryness is most common.
Avoid Heat Damage
Excessive heat styling can lead to hair damage. If you use heat tools, always apply a heat protectant spray before styling. Try to limit the use of heat tools and opt for protective styles like braids, twists, or buns when possible.
Protective styles help minimize breakage and promote hair growth. Popular options include box braids, cornrows, twists, and weaves. Be sure not to make these styles too tight, as they can damage your hair and scalp.
