Healthy Hair Tips

Ciao Bellas,
If you follow me on instagram (which you totally should! I'm @FlyFierceFab on Instagram and Twitter), you've probably seen this picture I posted from the Healthy Hair Presentation I gave last weekend for the women and young girls at my Church.


The theme for the day was health and beauty, and since I've noticed that some of the younger girls have had some hair issues...I thought it would be a good idea to give a presentation on healthy hair care. I basically put together a powerpoint and handout sharing some basic healthy hair care tips that every lady should know. I also brought in some of the products and styling tools that I use on my hair, and explained how they should be responsibly used. My focus wasn't on relaxed or natural hair, or how to grow out your hair (length retention), but these tips will certainly help those things. The only thing I didn't get into heavily was the specifics of maintaining a moisture & protein balance (which your hair needs, and I did discuss it), and this was because my presentation was more geared twoard the younger girls (7 and up, though a lot of older women did wind up coming) so I wanted to keep things simple and not overwhelm them with information.

These are the tips from my presentation handout:

10 Healthy Hair Care Tips


1) Wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner at least once a week. If you’re not sure what kind to buy, always look for something that says “moisturizing”.

2) Moisturize your hair with a hair moisturizer on a regular basis. Moisture is your hairs friend!

3) Deep condition your hair once a week (conditioner + plastic cap + blow-dryer. Or use conditioner and a self-heating cap, they have them at Wal-Mart and beauty supply stores).

4) Don't use too much heat on your hair too often (and when you do, be sure that the temp isn't too high & always use a heat protectant).

5) Protect your hair! Always wrap it at night before bed

6) Protective styles (where the ends of your hair are put away) are a great way to give your hair a break. Some examples would be buns, braids, and sew ins (make sure you take care of your hair underneath though).

7) You can do hair treatments at home with things you have around the house like olive oil, mayonnaise, and honey. You can add oil and or honey to your conditioner when you deep condition your hair, you can make a hair mask out of honey and olive oil, or do a treatment with mayonnaise and olive oil

8) Always use a wide tooth comb when you comb your hair

9) Try fun no-heat styles like a braid out, twist out, or flexi rods when you wanna give your hair a break from heat. Try to air dry your hair whenever possible.

10) Most importantly, keep your hair and scalp clean and healthy. Take care of your hair, and it will take care of you.



Hope this helps somebody out there!


Stylishly Yours,
Seyi
