Escape the curse of itchy dryness and unsightly white specks on your scalp, and start summer right thanks to these recommendations.
Step-by-step, here are the products you need to care for your natural hair as you grow that awesome afro.
You’ve heard of primer for your face, but how about primer for your hair? Face primer provides a base for your make up, allows products to go on smoother and last longer, and just generally makes your skin look better. Hair primer does pretty much the same thing - but for your hair!
Chances are, you’ve already been using some kind of hair primer for a while without even realising it. Heat protective styling products that create a protective layer to prevent damage and frizziness when blow drying or using your curling iron are a type of hair primer.
What many people don’t know, however, is that hair primers should be used in conjunction with other moisturising and styling products to deliver maximum benefit. We’ve rounded up our favourite hair priming products, plus we’ll tell you the best way to use them.
Even if you plan on using styling products with added moisturisers, nothing beats a proper moisturising treatment. Mizani 25 Miracle Milk contains a variety of natural, sustainably-sourced oils and extracts and contains no parabens, sulphates, drying alcohols or mineral oils. It nourishes dry and thirsty curly hair and works beautifully with all curl textures. Spray it on your hair and work through with your fingers or a wide tooth comb, before applying heat styling products.
Hair primer should be applied after any conditioning treatments, to lock in moisture and provide a barrier that protects the hair shaft during heat styling. Work a couple of pumps of Mizani Thermastrength Heat Protecting Serum through your hair, and comb through to distribute product evenly. This product has a heat-activated formula that uses anti-breakage ceramide technology to improve your hair’s strength. It softens hair for a shiny, manageable finish, and protects your hair when you use your hairdryer, curling iron or straightener.
Once your hair is perfectly styled, keep it looking that way with a spritz of Mizani HRM Humidity Resistant Mist. This is a lightweight finishing spray with no greasy residue that helps to combat frizziness and split ends. It also offers UV protection. The result is soft, shiny, healthy-looking, frizz-free hair.
So, next time you style your hair, don’t reach for just one product. By using a combination of treatments and protective primers, you really do get better results with far less frizz!
