Love dare – the hair challenge part 3

My lovies, mommy is back.

Stage 3- hot oil treatment

My hair has been begging for a hot oil treatment. Its been so long over due (once again i ask myself, how did i ever let it get this bad?)
For this i went out and bought Dr Miracle’s daily moisturizing GRO OIL. It is blended with vitamins A, D, & E, avocado and aloe vera. All these equal healthy hair growth, just what my mane needs. It also soothes and treats the scalp and promotes hair growth.
Interesting fact, it is excellent on relaxed, braided, natural or weaved hair.

For hot oil treatment: apply oil from roots to ends of hair. Massage into scalp, cover with a heating cap for 3-15 minutes (depending on your hair’s condition). Shampoo and you are done.

I also bought Dr Miracle’s REPAIR damaged hair medicated treatment. This is blended with aloe vera, vitamins A & E, almond and jojoba oils. It deeply conditions and helps repair (again, just what my mane needs, desperately).

Dr Miracle’s products include proteins and nutrient-rich ingredients like vitamins & natural oils, that go beyond conditioning to nourish hair down to the core. We can all get and KEEP soft, shiny, strong, healthy and beautiful hair.

Black Hair Care Tips

A healthier lifestyle will result in healthier hair.

Massaging your scalp on a regular basis will stimulate oil production, which will help reduce the dryness of your hair.

Daily shampooing is not recommended, ethnic hair is dryer than other types of hair, shampooing strips away the oils from your hair so try shampooing once every 3 to 7 days instead.

If you engage in daily activities that causes you to sweat, it is recommended that you rinse your hair out with water and only use shampoo on occasion. If you feel the need to use a mild shampoo, go ahead and do so.

Use a mild moisturizing shampoo with a low PH level when washing your hair.

Don’t use a 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner, use a separate shampoo and conditioner, 2 in 1’s aren’t suited as well for dry hair.

When washing your hair rub only in one direction to avoid tangling.

Shower with warm water; hot water can dry and/or irritate the scalp.

Oil your scalp after shampooing. With your hair still moist, massage the oil into your scalp and brush out to the ends of your hair.

Use a conditioner when you shower, it’ll moisturize your hair, give it extra protection, add shine, reduce static, and makes it easier to untangle.

Use a leave in conditioner, it’ll hydrate and protect your hair. A leave in conditioner on your hair is the equivalent of moisturizer on your face.

Don’t rub your hair dry with a towel, instead blot the water out of your hair. Rubbing will cause your hair to tangle and you’ll risk breakage.

Limit your use of “hot” items on your hair such as blow dryers.

Use a wide toothed comb or pick to comb your hair. It makes it easier to comb if your hair is slightly moist so the comb can slide easier across your hair. Using a leave in conditioner will also make your hair easier to comb. If your hair is very wet, wait until it dries more; hair is most fragile when it is wet.

If you encounter a tough knot or tangle, use your fingers to loosen it and then continue combing.

Comb your hair to remove any tangles before brushing it. Using a brush to detangle your hair will stretch your hair and may cause your hair to break off.

Use a soft boar hairbrush on your hair daily; this will distribute the oil at the root of your hair and scalp to the rest of your hair. Dampen the brush slightly before brushing.

Get a hot oil treatment once a month which will remoisturize your scalp and hair.

Hair can get caught on cotton pillow cases and break when you are sleeping, especially if you toss and turn a lot when you sleep. Using a satin or silk pillowcase so that your hair will slide across the pillowcase without getting caught.

An alternative to the silk pillowcase is to wear a silk or satin scarf over your hair before your sleep to prevent breakage.

Avoid hair products that contain alcohol which drys out hair.
