Gently brush your hair with a paddle brush or a wide-tooth comb. After you brush out your hair you will wash your hair in lukewarm water using a sulfate and alcohol free shampoo and conditioner. Once your hair is washed, let it air dry or use the lowest setting on your hair dryer.
ALWAYS use a heat protector when applying heat to your hair. After you style your hair you can use a lightweight leave-in serum to add shine and to prevent frizz, but this is optional. For our curly textured hair you can apply water to your hair with a spray bottle to add moisture to your hair.
Co-wash hair with a sulfate free conditioner once a week. Start by applying the conditioner to the ends of your hair working your way up to your scalp. Rinse your hair with cold water and comb through your hair with a wide-tooth comb. Let your hair air dry or use the lowest setting of your hair dryer.
Shampoo hair every two weeks with a sulfate and alcohol free shampoo to remove any build up. Make sure your hair is thoroughly dry to prevent a mildew smell and damage to your hair.
Protect your raw hair at night with a satin bonnet or a satin pillowcase to retain moisture and to prevent the hair from tangling. You can also use flexi rods for heatless curls or braids to lock in moisture while you sleep.
