Here are items you should include in your hair care routine:

-       Detangling comb

The comb is best used straight after washing your hair, while it is still wet to remove the tangles on the ends, making it easier to style.

-        Head wrap or silk scarf

A head warp or scarf is essential for locking in the moisture after your hair has been washed and treated with oils. It will also help reduce friction and breakage when you are sleeping.

-        Mist spray bottle

Detangling your hair without any water can cause breakage and a prolonged wash routine, a mist spray bottle is essential for the days when a shower will take up your time but when you still need to comb and style your hair.
