5 tips to make afro-hair healthy and shiny again
Consistently moisturize your hair
While any hair type can benefit from moisturization, porous, kinky locks are even more prone to drying out quickly. That is why you need to actively incorporate moisturizing products into your haircare routine. With so many products available on the market, it might be confusing to figure out which will work best with your hair. We believe, however, that the best way to do that is to use hair treatment, which have benefited afro-hair for centuries. The use of chebe powder - an ancient hair care remedy that has been used for generations by the women of Chad in Africa and has helped them maintain healthy, glossy, waist-length curls. With Chebeauty's line of chebe-infused products, you can find something for yourself depending on the texture you are looking for - but we recommend starting your acquaintance with their classic Chebe Hair Butter.
Include oil treatment in your hair routine
While moisturizing your hair has a great affect on its quality, it is just as important to maintain said moisture in your hair. That is why hair oils are such a great addition to your hair routine. Trapping moisture within the hair strands, hair oils make sure that your hair is fortified from root to tip, all the while treating your scalp to reduce dandruff, flakiness and itchiness. Chebeauty's Karkar Oil is the perfect option to consider - apart from the afore mentioned benefits, it can also boast antifungal and antibacterial properties, meaning that your hair will receive further protection from any potential harm.
Avoid washing hair more than once a week
While this may seem counter-intuitive to some, it is best to minimize the number of times you wash your hair. The reason why it's not recommended is because you do not want to enable the build-up of hair care products, which can clog your follicles, drying out your scalp and, eventually, your hair. Instead, try to wash your hair more thoroughly and moisturize it as recommended for it to last longer in its healthy prime.
Fortify your hair with protein treatment
One of the most important components of hair fortification is supplementing it with nutrients - but of the great variety of nutrients out there, proteins are some of the most crucial ones. Great choice for your protein treatment would be Chebeauty's Fermented Rice Water, which not only supplies your hair with high levels of protein and inositol essential for healthy hair growth, but also conditions and detangles, while providing your locks with a healthy glow.
Stick to protective hairstyles
This may be another obvious one, but there is a reason why protective hairstyles have acquired the name. While it's obviously fine to break this rule from time to time, overall, it is best to be gentle to your hair as much as you can. This will also ensure that you do not over-comb or damage your hair with heat too much and reduce the chances of over-styling.
