also find a lot of information on natural hair care. I do a lot of research on hair care to find way to create products that can achieve what I want for myself and clients. As a herbalist, I create a lot of product to help damage hair. I care about what go into my hair, so it's all about the ingredients for me, and of course I want it to smell good. I am usually asked how often I should wash my hair? My answer is at least once a week, we as African American need to attain moisture in our hair.
The best way for black hair to be dry and straighten is with a blow dryer with the comb attached. I always use a blow dryer if I don't let my hair drip dry. I was asked about how long
you should wear your weave, there are a bit of debate about it because some people would say
3 months but I say 2 months. I also say if you see a problem occurring while wearing your extensions or with your hair being braided continuously, change it. The reason is that when you wear extensions, and braids continuously it thins your hair. One way to avoid this is to go in a different direction with your hair, you don't have to style your hair the same each time.
I know that one of the reasons why braids are so popular in Florida is because of the heat and humidity, but you don't have to wear braids all the time or wear the same style. I encourage ladies to do something different with you natural hair, find a style that you will love of course. The main thing is to take care of your natural hair regardless of style. Don't force yourself to wearing wigs to cover up your hair because of damage. Love your hair, we do.
