Growing natural hair can be a dreadful experience, let’s face it ,despite all your efforts to keep your natural hair long and voluminous, the results take time and can be frustrating.
When choosing hair products, go for ingredients that stimulate hair growth. These include Aloe Vera, an ancient ingredient that is for benefits in nourishing skin and overall health. According to Surjushe A, Vasani R and Saple D G on their study titled, Aloe Vera: A Short Review, aloe contains vitamins (A, C, E) and all three of these vitamins contribute to cell turnover, promoting healthy cell growth and shiny hair.
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.
