Your Locks Will Always Need An Extra TLC 

Much like the rest of other hair types—straight, wavy or curly—a good hair always starts with a good treatment. Especially if you’re dealing with natural curls. Curly hair requires extra attention compared to other hairstyles. Hence, investing in a good shampoo, conditioner, hair masks and duhh, hair oils are always a good idea. If you’re dealing with dry hair, make sure to apply hair oil after every wash and hair masks at least twice a week, because much like dry skin, a good proper hydration is always needed to restore moisture and lock in hydration. Also, once you learn to detach yourself from using a cotton towel to dry your hair, you’ll notice how much better your hair feels and looks. Now, go get that microfiber towel, instead.

How To Wear Hair Serum?

After washing, rub some serum on your palms and gently massage your hair using fingers. Gently massage your scalp so the serum will be absorbed nicely. Because we live under extremely hot weather, applying the right product can keep your hair protected. This can also get the cuticle to lay as flat as possible. So, make sure to pick the right serum that’s suitable for your scalp.
