Get Healthy Hair
Our primary goal in our hair journey should be healthy hair!
We need to take care of our hair to minimize damages such as split ends,
shedding, breakage, brittle and dry hair, etc. Taking care of our hair in an
effort for it to be healthy will produce length.
Not only is what we put onto our hair important but what we put into our
bodies is as well. We have to take care of our hair externally and internally
by eating better and exercising.
In the winter you should deep condition your hair on a regular basis. My
recommendation is every week but be sure to do it at least once per month!!
In the colder months you may choose not to cleanse as frequently. Be sure
to cleanse at least once in the month and do a deep condition! Use a
conditioner that provides sufficient moisture and be sure to keep check of
your protein. Your deep condition should be at least 30 minutes to get
Always keep hair moisturized. Be sure to use products that contribute to
moisture and don't deplete it. Adding olive oil, honey, mayo and avacodo to
your deep conditioning treatments boosts the protein which is important to
add strength to the hair.
Incorporate protective styling such as twists, cornrows and braids (not
tightly done), puffs and buns. If you choose puffs and buns be sure to
carefully handle your edges. Protective styling will help you to retain hair
growth. Opt to wearing hats that are lined with silk or satin or wear a satin
scarf under the hat.
Dust the ends of your hair when needed. If you see a split or single strand
knot, spend the time to gently remove it or clip it off.
Incorporating castor oil and peppermint oil to your moisturizing regimen can
help with thinning edges and breakage. Massaging your scalp often (15
minutes a day) with an oil that is molecularly small, such as jojoba,
grapeseed, coconut or almond oils, will stimulate growth. I also recommend
adding aloe vera juice to your conditioner. I like to add it to my spray bottle
along with some conditioner and water for mid-week re-moisturizing and

Try to avoid the heat usage if you can, as heat can strip the moisture from
the hair contributing to dryness. If you are going to use heat, be sure to use
a product that seals in moisture and is a heat protectant prior to applying
heat to the hair.
Drink alot of water and eat healthy. Exercise, as simple as a brisk walk for
30 minutes a day, and adequate sleep aids in a healthy body, which in turn
produces healthy hair. Dedicate time to caring for your hair and your
