"Tresses at their best"

As of late it's been super hot and humid, making it difficult to maintain my diva hair status here in Chicago. We all would like to have perfect hair like Tyra Banks or wonderful loose waves like Kim Kardasian but lets face it....... those are WEAVES ladies! Let's keep it real! Wonderful weaves and wigs but still artificial hair. What's going on underneath those hair masterpieces? Looks like traction alopecia for our friendly super model Naomi Campbell.

Let's take a moment and talk about Healthy hair!
I know I just lost all of my Weavalicious sisters but this is especially for you!
Here are a few tip and tricks you can use to maintain the health of your hair!

Of course we can't all have perfect hair but we can take steps to make it look like it!

Tip 1: Make sure you are properly cleansing your hair with the proper products. You should have several different shampoos as your hair does not always need the same thing. If you are frequently using heavy styling products you must have a deep cleansing clarifying shampoo to properly cleanse those strands and follicles.

Tip 2: The only true way to moisturize your hair is with water. Find a moisturizing conditioner that is going to penetrate each hair shaft to bind and hold moisture into the hair. This is especially important for my natural sista's. Natural curly hair tends to be very very dry.

Tip 3: You should limit your time with heat styling tools. If you must indulge always use a heat protectant when using styling tools. Concentrate product on the ends for extra coverage.

Hope this helps you!

  1. Good moisturizers are important, do you recommend any particulars ones that are more penetrating than coating?

  2. Like the hair tip about using various shampoos according to hair needs. Any tips for maintaining healthy hair for women who have their hair blow dried/ flat ironed (egyptian shops)? Thanks

  3. Hey Tiffany, an easy to find product is Perfect Results Deep penetrating moisturizing conditioner. I love it! Nexuss Humectress ultimate Moisturizing Conditioner is a good one too.

    Hey Sabrina, My advice for going to the "egyptian shops" and getting your hair burned is not to....and if that's not going to work my suggestion is for you not go as much. This process tends to leave the hair dry, brittle and damaged. So to combat this you definitely need a great conditioner and every other week use a body building shampoo that also helps damaged hair. I like Dudley's Hair Rebuilder. It's fab!
