Natural hair products manufactures are increasing together with their marketing tools; youtubers and social media influencers.

Natural hair rules.

However it is perfectly fine occasionally to use heat on your hair as long as you keep it well oiled and moisturised. Blow dry and flat iron it once in a while to make it easy to manage or change styles.

3. The satin bonnet
Moisture and tender handling is the centre of every natural hair care routine.

With a Satin pillowcase and bonnet , all these problems are solved. I get mine from nauza_nguo_na_viatu on instagram .
4. Protective styles are key
Apart from looking great and amping it up. Protective styles like box braids , crotchet braids , twist outs and weaves give your hair a break from constant manipulation and thus prevents breakage and saves you the hassle of styling in the morning.
