Multiracial dry, frizzy, kinky & curly hair types transform into healthy, hydrated gorgeous locks when properly moisturised. One of the biggest misconceptions about multiracial hair is that it is different from other hair types. The truth is, we are all made of the same ingredients…..and all hair is composed of the same proteins. The only difference is in the way the hair grows. Without extra moisture dry, tight, kinky curls grow out in a shape that can make brushing, styling and growing long hair difficult.
Because of the shape and delicate nature of multiracial hair types, clean moisture can have beautiful results! Whether we are going natural or chemically straightening our hair, the added moisture will protect it from damage. However, all moisture is not created equal. More specifically, all moisturising hair products are not created equal. Natural oils like jojoba, almond, coconut, and apricot oils closely match our hair’s natural oils and are readily absorbed. Plus, the proteins and vitamins in these oils help keep hair healthy and growing gorgeously. Look for them in your shampoos, conditioners, and styling products, and beware of drying sulphates that leave hair dry, frizzy and prone to breakage.
A great detangler and hair oil are also critical. They make daily styling much easier and also help reduce breakage. The detangler and hair oil should be multipurpose. Like our other hair products, the detangler and oil should add strength and shine for effortless styling and also protect hair from dryness, wind, and sun. Spritz damp hair liberally and comb gently with a wide-tooth comb for silky, beautiful locks. Finish with the non-greasy hair oil for extra brilliance!
For thicker, course or delicate/breakage-prone hair, using an extra conditioning styling aid made specifically for curly hair will make styling time a pleasure. This product will smooth the hair shaft and allow curls to cascade, framing the face. Use your favorite styling aid after detangling for lovely frizz-free curls.
Moisture, vegan protein and SPF protection are the keys to having beautiful hair. Using products that specifically help our hair fibre remain healthy and nourished means our best hair ever!
