Healthy hair. That’s every woman’s desire and goal. Sometimes it’s because we want longer hair but long hair isn’t necessarily the reason for maintaining healthy hair, although that’s often the result. For some, the reasons are more simple like: wanting hair that holds a style, simply shines or radiates beauty naturally.
Whatever your reason for wanting healthier hair, it’s my goal as a natural hair blogger to provide you with the information you need to help you achieve the hair you desire.
Yes, there are many natural hair bloggers around but most of them do not provide exhaustive amounts of information specifically for fine natural hair. That’s where I come in. I solely talk about caring for fine natural hair.
I’m not a licensed hair specialist but I do share content with you that I believe can help you obtain a healthier head of hair. It’s based on my personal experiences with specific products and techniques that I’ve engaged with/in for the past 13+ years.
And, while I can share a host of things that you could DO to obtain healthy hair, if you were to choose just one thing from what I’m about to share… and do it CONSISTENTLY, you will see a huge difference in the way your hair responds. Flourishes even.
So, while I’m sure that I can provide you with 100 ways to get you to a healthier head of hair (after a few mind mapping sessions…and a little investigating), let’s focus on 5. Just 5. From these five things, pick just one and uber-focus. I mean go all out and don’t miss a beat!
5 Simple Ways to Healthier Hair:
1- Deep condition your hair every single week. That means never skip a deep conditioning session.
2- Moisturize your hair every-single-day using the LOC or LCO method
3- Protective style your hair 5-6 days out of the week. Yup. Set it and forget it….sorta. Depending on your hair and the type of protective style, you may need to take it down nightly to add a little moisture. Just don’t over-manipulate.
4- Pre-Poo your hair with coconut oil and conditioner (optional) before every single wash.
5- Stop using hair tools like combs and brushes and opt for solely finger detangling and finger styling your hair.
These simple hair care methods are more powerful than you may give them credit for. Yet, simple doesn’t mean easy. It takes work to do just about anything consistently. And, here’s a little “secret”…
Secrets Don’t Exist!
There are really no “secrets” to obtaining healthier hair. People only use that word to get your attention and it works nearly every single time. Now, something may appear to be a secret if you don’t know about it. The more you educate yourself, the more you discover that there’s nothing new under the sun. The answers to almost everything you want to know about can be found by doing a little investigating. (except the cure for incurable diseases….yet. but you get my point!)
So what’s the point?
The point is to FOCUS. Tune out the noise. Stop reading every single article you can find on obtaining healthy hair and start taking action. While there are tons of things you can do to achieve, just pick one and laser focus. It doesn’t take a phD in hair care to get your hair to a healthy state. Heck, it doesn’t even require you to spend a ton of money going to the “professionals” every week. Learn to do it yourself and again, focus.
Focusing is very powerful. (If this hair was stretched out completely, the length would shock you!)
