Brushing hair

1. Apply oil to hair

The night before you wash your hair, give it a brush and then apply hair oil all over it, going from the ends upwards.

I tend to use extra virgin coconut oil. Then, brush your hair again to distribute the product.

Braiding hair

2. Braid hair

Once done, loosely braid your hair.

Sleep with your hair like that, covering it with a silk cap or sleeping on a silk pillowcase if you so desire.

Shampooing hair

3. Apply shampoo

When washing your hair, be sure to massage your scalp with your fingers.

This not only helps the shampoo to break in the oils and the dirt, but it also stimulates blood circulation in the scalp and promotes hair growth.

Wash your hair twice with a moisturizing shampoo and then rinse it on.

Applying hair mask

4. Apply hair mask

Instead of applying shampoo, go straight in with a hair mask.

Apply it on the ends and leave it on for a bit. Then rinse it out at the end of your shower.

Applying leave-in conditioner spray

5. Apply leave-in conditioner

Next, spray your hair with some leave-in conditioner spray that will also help to detangle your hair.

Styling hair

6. Style hair

Now you can go ahead and curl your hair.

Applying hair oil

7. Apply hair oil

The last step is to apply some hair oil as a finishing product after you style your hair to keep your hair nourished, shiny and protected in between styles.
