Keep your hair well nourished and conditioned using hair food. There are different

types of hair food to choose from and these include:

WATER-BASED HAIR FOOD

¦ It hydrates the hair and the scalp,

and works best with a slow andproper massage on the head.

¦ It activates hair follicles and

encourages hair growth.

¦ It soothes the scalp and

penetrates the skin far easier

than an oil-based hairfood.

MOVE! TIP: Wear a silk cap at night to lock the moisture in.

OIL-BASED HAIR FOOD

¦ It acts as a barrier to lock

moisture in the hair.

¦ It works well on natural hair

rather than synthetic hair.

The curlier the hair, the more

hairfood is needed.

¦ It also works wonders on

protective hairstyles such as

dreadlocks and braids.

MOVE! TIP: Use it once a week.

Barbara Kamanga, owner of

Stylist Ethnique in Cape Town,

advises that although hair food

is a necessary treatment for hair,

applying it everyday will cause

oil build up and cause the hair

to break
