I hope you’ve watching this space guys, because every Friday we’ll be doling out tips on hair care whether you’re a naturalista or not… It’s also #NoShaveNovember and we know some of you aspire to great have good and well groomed beards and hair… well look no further. We’ve got the deets on just how you can go about it… Or your girlfriend/sister can just help you mix them up..
Keep Your Hair Clean!!!
When you have clean follicles, your hair will definitely grow out and that’s why we girls always take time with our wash days and all… Yes, you wash with soap when you’re bathing but do you know that those toilet soaps have sulphate which strips your hair of oils and leaves it dry,.. Invest in a good shampoo (Sulphate-free to be precise) and wash your hair with luke-warm water once a week.
Massage Your Scalp and Jawline
Before going to bed, take out a few minutes to massage your scalp and your beard area… This stimulates blood flow in those regions and it would relieve stress which would stunt growth. think of it as giving yourself a head massage
Oil and Moisturize Your Hair!!
I’m trying to keep this as simple as possible but one basic thing you should know is that oils are not moisturizers so you need both. Moisturizing helps to replenish lost water especially now that we’re in the harmattan season. Drink a lot more water than usual and pour water on your head while taking a bath, Just Water!!! Don’t rub soap!!!
For Oils, here’s a DIY tip to make your Hair Grow a lot faster and you know can use it on your beard too..
- 1/4 cup castor oil
- 1 teaspoon black cumin seed oil
- 1/2 teaspoon rosemary oil
- 15 drops lavender essential oil
Mix them all in a dark bottle and before using it, moisten your hair a bit beofe applying about 10-30 drops to the scalp. leave it on for like an hoir or overnigth but make sure you iuse a dark towel to avoid staining your pillow.. Your girlfriend won’t like that. Use this once a week for optimum results…
I would love to hear from you, as long you do’nt have alopecia that is…. just kidding..
