Every ‘fro needs a comb to keep it looking fly! Here are some tips to make sure you’re choosing the perfect one for yours.
Step-by-step, here are the products you need to care for your natural hair as you grow that awesome afro.
If you can’t see it, it’s not a worry, right? Wrong! Just because your hair is hidden underneath a wig, doesn’t mean you can stop looking after it!
Even if you’d never be seen dead without your weave, neglecting your natural hair can result in all kinds of unpleasant problems. From annoying ailments such as itching to embarrassing issues like odour to downright disasters like hair breakage, overlooking what’s underneath could leave you with untold problems. In fact, incorrect hair and scalp care is one of the most common causes of hair loss in women who wear wigs. So, if you want to make sure that your favourite weave hairstyles don’t cause serious issues and leave you bald before your time… read on.
When it comes to hair loss treatment, prevention is better than cure. So, treat your hair gently. Don’t just scrunch it beneath your wig. Braid your hair and wrap it neatly before you put on your weave. This prevents friction against your hairline and minimises hair breakage and hair loss.
Even if your hair is covered with a wig, it will still get dirty. Oil from your scalp, dead skin cells and sweat can cause itchy build up. Wash your hair with Mizani Scalp Care Shampoo and Mizani Scalp Care Conditioner containing 1% pyrithione zinc to remove flakes, eliminate bacteria and soothe itching.
Long weave styles give you the benefit of versatile length and colour. If you’re wearing a wig while you grow out your natural hair, it’s important to keep your hair nice and healthy underneath the wig. A regular hair breakage treatment is essential to prevent damage and encourage growth. Mizani Strength Fusion Intense Night-time Treatment is formulated with shea butter and vitamins to nourish brittle hair while you sleep.
If you put your wig back on while your hair is still wet, bacteria and fungus can grow on your scalp and in your hair. Not only will this itch and cause a nasty smell, but it can also damage your weave. Anyway, you really should give your scalp a break to let it breathe every now and then - so give your hair time to dry completely before you put your wig back on again.
Last but not least, keeping your wig clean will ensure that your scalp and natural hair remains healthy too. Wash your weave and brush it out at least once a month to keep it in perfect condition.
