FR Points: 6 Natural Hair Secrets I Learnt At The NNHB Show


I know I have left the natural hair gang, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't take a few points and share with some sistahs that are in need. Also, who knows, I might go natural again, you just might never know. But enough about my future choices, check out the few things I learnt from the Nigerian Natural Hair Beauty show (NNHB) that took place this past weekend.

6 Natural Hair Secrets

1) The hair grows in a certain pattern and if your hair dresser does your braids in the opposite direction your hair grows, it would definitely break your hair.

2)If you have a problem with your hair growing, it could either be hereditary or you don't have enough protein in your diet.

3)When you wash your natural hair, remember to put conditioner in it. After it's been applied, put it in a twist, then rinse the conditioner off while the twist is still on. Before you loosen the twist, you would squeeze out the water from the hair. You would notice that your hair still has a little conditioner left in it, which would allow moisture to stay on the hair to keep your hair soft.

4)If you are following a vlogger or a blogger for hair guidance, you have to make sure that person has the same hair texture as yours. If not,  it could only leave you disappointed when you try out what works for them, or leave your hair damaged.

5)It takes 3 months for the body to understand the changes you are making to your hair, and 6 months to see the progress.

6) When you want to color your hair, make sure you find an experienced colorist. Also, if you can, try to contact someone who basically has the same hair texture with you that has used the same colorist you have been thinking of using, and ask them how their experience was like and how their hair has been since they had their hair colored. This is a safe way to make a choice without taking a risk with your hair that you have invested in for a long time. Instagram makes it very easy to find different hairstylists, so its also very easy to find their clients (if tagged on a picture or caption), so that way, you can easily communicate with them.

Some of the speakers shared a lot of important information that could help every natural haired girl that's still trying to find out what works for her or understand her hair. I can't wait to attend other cool events coming up, will surely keep you posted.
