Follow our tips to have a good hair day… every day!

  • Over washing your hair will dry it out even further as it strips the natural hair oils.
  • Wash hair with warm water, and not with hot water which could dry out the scalp.
  • Use products that are made especially for ethnic hair.
  • Massaging your scalp regularly is very important as it produces oils and stimulates blood circulation which will encourage growth.
  • For extra moisture massage oil into towel dried hair after shampooing, comb through and wash out.
  • Rather use a wide tooth comb or your fingers to untangle your hair – a brush would only cause damage.
