Natural haircare can be difficult, but we are here to make it easy. We have created 7 steps for you to follow to begin your natural hair journey today.
Step 1: Remove your protective style to reveal your natural hair.
Step 2: Assess the health of your hair to help you establish your hair goals. I recommend you book an appointment with a licensed hair stylist for a hair assessment. The hairstylist should be able to tell you about your scalp health, hair health, and give you product recommendations.
Step 3: Establish hair goals based on your hair assessment. You can define what healthy hair is to you. Then, research how ladies with similar hair textures as you, have achieved those same goals.
Step 4: Discover your hair porosity. Hair porosity is the ability for your hair to absorb and retain moisture. Your hair porosity can either be low, medium, or high. Your hair porosity level will help you determine the best way to take care of your hair.
Step 5: Purchase hair products with your hair goals, porosity, and budget in mind. I recommend you purchase affordable hair products first because you are in the process of learning which products work best on your hair. Be sure to purchase your hair tools and accessories from Dollar Tree to save you money.
Step 6: Create a hair routine based on your hair goals and your schedule. Create a regimen that details what you will do daily, weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly to achieve your goals.
Step 7: Enjoy the ride! Maintaining natural hair can be difficult but that doesn’t mean that it can’t be enjoyable.
