Coiled and curly hair needs a specific hair care routine to ensure it is well-moisturized so that the hair and scalp stay healthy.
The type of hair you have could make you more likely to face certain challenges when it comes to your hair care routine.
Coiled and curly hair is prone to being dry and brittle.
This is because the natural oils produced by your scalp don’t travel well through curl patterns. The hair then becomes dry and brittle.
Maintaining coiled and curly hairstyles can cause dry, itchy scalp.
The unique demands of coiled and curly textured hair lead many people to choose hairstyles that can be worn for days between washes.
Sometimes, though, it’s difficult to give the scalp the moisture it needs between washes, leaving it dry, itchy & irritated.
HOW TO KEEP COILED AND CURLY HAIR STRONG AND HEALTHY
The key to keep your hair looking and feeling nourished is to keep your scalp healthy too.
Healthy hair grows from a healthy scalp. With a good foundation, the hair can grow back stronger and fuller.
- Avoid brushing your hair when it’s dry – this can cause breakage and aggravate your scalp
- Use deep moisturizing treatments – natural oils like shea, argan, and primrose oil can make hair softer and less brittle
- Use a co-wash— wash with a conditioner that can cleanse and moisturize both scalp and hair while detangling curls
