Hair Care Tips
Ever wonder why some ladies seem to have it all rosy and good when it comes to hair? Perhaps you are one of the many people who covet your next door neighbour's hair or a collegue at work. Either way when it comes to having that "all good" hair we often fantasize about, we forget that the most important factor required is Hair Nourishment.
So what does it really mean to nourish the hair?
I am happy to share a few tips with you on how to nourish your hair. I guarantee that you too will become that perfect haired girl after putting to practice my tips.
Washing & Conditioning
Washing your hair is one thing but washing your hair the right way is a major thing. It is important to select the right Shampoo and conditioner. It is best to put your hair type into consideration. However, using shampoos that contain Sulphate, Paraben or Alcohol will naturally dry out your hair and make it difficult to retain moisture. It is important to select a gentle cleansing shampoo that does not contain those chemicals to allow for a gentle and thorough cleansing of your hair when dirty.
As for Conditioners, this is the seconnd and last part during the cleansing process of your hair. Depending on the state of your hair. If your hair is feeling weak, limp or dehydrated, you should use a fortifying conditioner for strength and a little bit of mositurizing conditioner for moisture replenishment.
Some might find it difficult to know the state of their hair, but I advice that you observe your hair in front of a mirrior and ask your hair, What is it you need right now? Feel your hair with your hand and listen. if its dry and limp, it is saying "I want moisture and protein togther" If it's stubborn and very dry, then it is saying ''I want just Moisture" ......
Dry Your Hair with Nature's Fresh Air
I know this tip might be somewhat unacceptable to some but I always encourage balance. There are times you will need to quickly blowdry and style your hair right away, if that is the case, make sure you apply a Heat Prtector Serum before blowdrying to protect your hair from heat.
So now back to Air drying. Did you know that there are many ways you can Air dry your hair into various styles? just to name a few, you can use flexible rods to roll in your hair, spray a leave-in conditioner on your hair shaft, roll and patiently wait for it to dry, you can also put your hair into two stranded twist and spray in a leave-in conditioner and Air dry. These styles allow your hair to have nice curls and movement without fussing too much. In that way you avoid heat damage, you get to allow your hair preserve the moisture from your conditioner and lastly you get to wear your hair into a natually beautiful style without too much hassle. Don't you think so?
Lastly, Say Goodnight to Your Hair
How do you go to sleep at night? Do you get so tired and jump into bed with your hair left out or exposed. We all know that tossing and turning is an inevitable act during sleep, so if we know this why do we make it a habit to sleep off without giving our hair a goodnite tuck in?
There are various ways we can tuck in our hair before bed. Some experts will advice using a silk cap to protect your hair, that may not work for everyone, either way, a simple protective styling before bed is highly recommended. you might need a simple few corn-rows or twist or a simple tie-up and tuck in. depending on your hair length. But never say goodnight without tucking in that hair first. Not only will you prevent your hair from smearing oils on your pillow case and the long term effect of dry and damaged hair, you also get to wake up with a hair that is easy to style and go.

One frequent question We get all the time from Clients during consultations is "my hair has broken off in front, at the sides or in the middle, I have tried different products but nothing seems to be working, what am I doing wrong? So We have decided to share with everyone and anyone who might be struggling with finding the right answers to this question. Read on
There are several reasons why your hair is breaking and as you are going through the listed reasons you might be able to identify with one or two of the reasons and take the right actions to make changes.
Tight Hair Xtensions; Include Ghana Weaving, Tight braids & Twist, Lace wigs with glue, Very Tight plats.
For so many years, hair extensions have become the addiction of many African women; while it is a trend and an enhancement of the physical appearance, it is common knowledge that if your hair is constantly being pulled and handled tightly on a regular basis, your hair will begin to lose its strength and luster, leaving you with brittle and damaged hair and edges. So in order to keep your hair strong and healthy, We advice you select gentle hairstyles that will not require you to strain your scalp regularly and allows you to protect your edges from damage. It is also very important to ensure that your stylist has very gentle hands, as we all know, aggressive hands on hair will cause severe scalp pain which can cause hair to break or fall out.
Harsh Chemical Relaxers; Chemical relaxers when selected and applied professionally can provide great benefits for your hair because it makes the hair manageable and sleek; so much so that it has become an addiction to so many users and caution is no longer taken. You might wonder how often you should touch up your roots, We recommend you do so 2-3 times a year. If you are already using HJ Organic fast hair growth cream, you should be finding your hair very soft and may only desire a re-touch once or twice a year. It is important to select a mild or regular relaxer to avoid irritation of scalp as well as hair damage. We recommend following the instructions on the Relaxer Brand you are using and most importantly allow your hair a few days to rest and recover after your Relaxer process. Applying a good deep conditioner or a leave-in conditioner will quickly help restore moisture and strength back to your hair. A good leave-in conditioner should be applied to your hair every time you Shampoo and condition your hair.
Wrong Shampoo & Conditioner (S&C); During cleansing, hair loses moisture and requires a conditioner to restore the moisture. If your shampoo and conditioner is not making a positive contribution to your hair it means that your S&C is drying out your hair and adding to your hair breakage. We recommend you purchase a shampoos and conditioners that is Sulphate and Paraben Free (as well as a good Protein based treatment like Aphogee Keratin 2 Minute Reconstructor or Redken Cat Treatment, if you have Relaxed or Texlaxed hair) Protein treatment is very important for people with Chemically Relaxed or Coloured hair because it helps to restore strength and integrity that has been lost due to broken bonds within the hair cortex.
Regular Hot Tools; This is one of the high causes of hair breakage. If you are an addict to hot styling tools then it might be time to decide if you want long and healthy hair or short, dry and damaged hair. Hot styling tools include blowdryiers, flat irons and curling irons. Does this mean you can not use any of these tools? Of course not, it is impossible to avoid them all together, but you will need to use with caution and Not frequently. We recommend allowing your hair to Air Dry as often as possible after washing, this will allows your hair to soak up moisture and stay healthy and strong in the long run. If you must use a hot styling tool, ensure to apply a Heat Protector spray or serum to your hair when wet before blowdrying,
If you are doing all of the above but still dealing with hair breakage or hair loss, please see a Doctor for more accurate diagnosis.

FOR CHEMICALLY RELAXED HAIR
Chemically treated hair requires keratin (protein) treatment once or twice every month.

Avoid the use of harsh Chemical products. Harsh chemical products include high sulphate shampoos, harsh Chemical Relaxers and harsh Styling Products, instead select Shampoos and Conditioners that are free of Sulphate and Paraben as it is more gentle on the hair.
Avoid hair styles that pull tightly on your Roots or Edges. This is very important to note, your hair MUST be treated gently while using our fast hair growth recipe. Tight styles like ghana weaves, full braids, tight corn-rows and the likes on a regular basis is NOT recommended when growing out your hair with fast hair growth recipe.

Avoid using flat-irons, blowdryers and curling-irons frequently on your hair. Too much use of heat styling causes hair to dry out and weaken which will eventually lead to splitting and breakage. Always opt for the option of Air-Drying whenever possible.
