Hair is a major thread that weaves through an individual’s identity in the fabric of personal expression.

Hair care goes beyond appearances and becomes a self-care ritual as well as an artistic medium.

The path of hair care is an intimate discovery that reflects both internal and exterior well-being, whether one chooses to embrace natural curls or tries out different styles. Along the way, embracing natural textures turns into a celebration of authenticity and a protest against social pressure to fit in. Every curl, wave, or straight lock tells a different story, and this nod honours those varied stories by telling a distinct story in strands that reflect perseverance and personal development.

Every decision you make on your canvas of self-expression becomes a brushstroke as styles change, from the ease of a wash-and-go to elaborate braids or striking colours. In hair care, emotions, experiences, and cultural influences are all woven into each strand, making hair a dynamic art form.

Essentially, taking care of one’s hair is a sign of acceptance and love for oneself that goes beyond the physical act. It’s a journey that takes place every day, and in the mirror, one can see not just their own style but also the developing narrative that is distinctively, exquisitely, and truly their own.
Let me now guide you on tips to care for your hair, whether natural or permed to be able to proudly wear it like a crown that it is.


To take care of natural hair, avoid using harsh shampoos that contain sulfates and try to limit washing your hair to once per week.

Weekly or bi-weekly deep-conditioning can help to hydrate natural hair, which tends to be on the dry side, and applying leave-in moisturizers every day can prevent fizziness.

  • Use a wide-teethed comb
  • Do not comb your hair when dry…before you comb moisturise with water and apply some oil to seal moisture.
  • Use a sulphate and paraben free shampoo like hair wonder, VO5, Cantu, XHC, My Hawaiian Silky, Mazuri shampoos to wash your hair.
  • Do not use rubber band to pack your hair. Use satin scrunchies to prevent hair breakage.
  • Comb your hair from tip to the root, not from the root to the tip.
  • Detangle with your hands before combing.
  • Prepoo your hair with oils before shampooing to make it soft and prevent breakage while combing
  • Hair prepoo is something that you do before washing to reduce breakage. You can use coconut oil, olive oil, palm oil. You apply well and cover for a while then remove and wash or comb. This gives your hair moisture and reduces breakage. Don’t comb or wash your hair immediately after loosening especially if your natural hair is quite dry. Do the hair Pre poo.
