Top 10 Right Haircare Methods

- Maintaining Hair Hygiene

- Using Correct Shampoo, Masks & Oil

- Maintaining Proper Diet & Nutrition

- Women of color across the world understand the importance of treating their hair with the right care. But what exactly do we mean when we say "right care?” The team here at Your Beauty Plug believes incorporating strategic steps into your care hair ensures healthy, natural, long-lasting hair growth. And as the fall months are fast approaching, we've taken the opportunity to create the ultimate guide for achieving the hair you've always desired. So, without further ado, let's get started.

1. Maintain your hair hygiene

Now, I know this step might be standard and goes without saying. But you'll be amazed at the number of people that don't keep up with their hair hygiene. By hair hygiene, we mean regularly washing your hair with organic shampoo and conditioner at least twice a week. Some people believe that afro hair doesn't need washing as often as European hair: but we disagree; we believe regular washing will inevitably enhance your hair growth journey.

2. Invest in natural ingredients

Your hair will thank you later if you saturate your hair with natural ingredients like coconut, avocado, and aloe vera. We call this our hair food formulations. And just in the same way we need to feed our bodies, we also need to provide our hair with natural healthy ingredients.

3. Hair Masks

Applying frequent hair masks to our hair hydrates our hair shafts and follicles while promoting blood circulation. Try using our hair food hair mask once a week.

4. Hair oils

Along with hair masks, we also love hair oils. Hair oils are a vital part of your hair-care journey due to their versatility. Use our natural growth hair oil to coat your ends, finish your style or even use it as part of your all-day scalp moisturizer.

5, Consistency

Now, the key to achieving any goal in life is consistency. And that goes for hair care too. But, creating any plan and not sticking to it is the quickest way not to reach your goals. That's why we're recommending taking small baby steps and adding weekly changes to ensure compliance.

6. Regular Steaming

Another tip we want you to practice is getting into the habit of steaming your hair. If going to the salon is difficult, we suggest you invest in a steaming cap. Enjoy a spa-like feel of washing then steaming your hair. Not only is it ultra-relaxing, but expect a rapid boost in hair growth by following this simple step.

7. Proper Diet and Nutrition 

With the best will in the world and incorporating our hair-care tips, it would be pointless if you're not taking care of what you put inside your body. So, throw away the junk food and enjoy eating fresh, healthy fruit and vegetables and bask in the benefits of luscious hair.

8. Protect your hair at night

This tip might be a given, but we want to remind you of the importance of always wrapping your hair at night with a satin bonnet or sleeping on a silk pillow. This step helps avoid the possibility of friction at night or your hair getting matted or tangled while you sleep.

9. Reduce heat

As advocates of natural hair care, we encourage you to try and minimize your use of heat products on your hair. For example, every time you apply a straightener or heating comb, you break down the protein and keratin in your hair and cause long-term damage. Therefore, we advocate sticking to heat-less processes as much as possible.

10. Keep your hands off your hair

Are you one of these people who can’t stop touching your hair or struggle to keep your hair in one style for too long? Over manipulation of your hair can cause breakages and damage. So, the next time you feel tempted to change your hair after only rocking the style for one week. Think of the long-term effects and perhaps keep your chosen style in for a bit longer.

Well, there you have it: Your beauty Plug's vital top 10 tips for treating your hair the right way. Growing and maintaining fabulous hair takes time, so have patience and don't beat yourself up if you feel it's taking too long. And lastly, try and enjoy the process and remember we're here for you every step of the way.
