Keep your hairline intact

Tight braids and cornrows are out. Stop your hairline from receding any further with a serum that promotes healthy hair growth.

Remove flakes

Dandruff and a dry scalp flakes can be embarrassing. Keep your scalp moisturised, and base your hair three times a week.

To help a dry flaky scalp, shampoo and condition once a week to help remove excess build-up and oils. Follow this by massaging a small amount of treatment oil on the scalp.

Strengthen your hair

Trimming hair regularly (every three months) triggers it to grow. Do some deep conditioning as often as possible too. Use a rich crème formula as a heat protection agent before styling.

Bring back the sheen

Chemicals like relaxers, dye and heat styling can leave your mane looking dull. Get life back into hair by washing it with cool water. This helps the hair shaft to close, therefore retaining more moisture.

Also, inject hair with moisture to ensure shinier, healthier strands that are also voluminous.

Prevent breakage

Protect hair from heat damage before you blow-dry. Use a heat protecting Serum, or a heat styling protection spray.
