The love for the Natural African hair has received a major boost in recent times.

Africans seem to have embraced their natural identity with class and style. In recent times, we have had beautiful brides walk down the isle to take their solemn vows adorned with their beautiful African Hair.

A style that used to be peculiar to devoted Christians that are sometimes tagged ”holly holly” is now found in the vast majority of the female world.

Celebrities are not left out of this trend, in fact,they are torch bearers in the race to achieve healthy natural hairs, setting the pace for amazing natural hair goals.

Contrary to popular claims, natural hair isn’t very expensive to maintain if you know the right products, most of which are our regular staples like Apple Cider Vinegar, Honey, Avocado, Eggs, Mayonnaise, e.t.c.

In the race to maintain beautiful/healthy natural hair,one has to be careful to not place priority on length but on the health of one’s hair; a healthy hair will always improve in length.

The first and most important step in the strife for a healthy kinky hair is to listen to your hair, don’t be afraid to try out different products to determine what works best for your hair but while you are at it, observe closely to know which product your hair reacts positively to.

Determine your hair texture and moisturize as much as necessary. Keep the scalp neat, shampoo at least twice a week and make sure you deep condition once in two weeks or twice  month. It is important to note that over moisturizing your hair also damages the hair.

Most times, what is good for our health/hair often make us uncomfortable but it’s always worth the pain and our hair will thank us for it. Using Natural hair care products is one of the best ways to maintain a healthy hair; take the pain and try out some of these products: Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter, Avocado, Apple Cider Vinegar, e.t.c. Palm Kernel Oil has also proven to be an amazing product for the hair but like I said, the best things for us sometimes keeps us uncomfortable.
