HAIR STYLING, NATURALLY
Adopting a natural approach can help to alleviate the stress that styling takes a toll on even the strongest hair.
Heat exposure, brushing, being tied up and daily washing can lead to hair that breaks, is dry and can make a sensitive scalp much more reactive.
Organic and natural products can help to make a big difference very quickly, leaving hair shiny, curls defined and split-ends much reduced.
First up, you need to look at your tools. Plastic brushes and combs are a no-no especially on wet hair. Switch to a very wide-toothed, detangling comb in a material like wood or bamboo which ‘drags’ the hair much less.
If you have hair that is very prone to knots or tangles,natural hair experts recommend a simple detangling conditioner, followed by a short final rinse in cold water (not hot, which causes frizz) to close and smooth the cuticles flat, making it easier to comb without having to pull at the hair.
If you’re drying your hair naturally, simply scrunch a natural mousse through it and pat (not rub) it dry with an organic cotton towel. We’d recommend natural hair drying at least 50% of the time if possible.
If you’re styling your hair with a dryer or heat styling tools, it’s always wise to use a protective pre-treatment to help prevent damage. One with ingredients like Aloe Vera is especially good on finer hair types which need to avoid being weighed down.
Traditional hair protection sprays contain a lot of silicon, which can stop colour sticking and causes the hair to be weighed down.
After a quick blast with the dryer, comb through some mousse from root to tip, then carefully finish styling with a natural hair brush, ensuring you point the dryer downwards toward the end of the hair for best results.
Extra Natural Hair Styling tips:
To tame fly-aways spray your hairspray on your brush, not your hair then smooth it over
Natural/raw silk or tumble dryer sheets make a great option for de-frizzing in a hurry
Use the textured side of a hair grip NOT the flat side against the scalp for hold
Do a deeper hair cleanse and condition at least once a month
Wind hair around a silk scarf at night and gently knot to prevent pillow damage and encourage beach waves
