Having a daughter has taught me and continues to teach me so many things. Lessons such as learning how to be incredibly careful during those hair-washing days. The moment water or tear-free shampoo accidentally touches her eyes, it is a wrap! There is no more washing that can be done! Or learning the art of contouring your body into different, unnatural positions as you try and do her hair whilst she is sleeping, just so she doesn’t wake up. Or being ready to go into battle and mentally preparing yourself for the screams and wriggling because you can’t be bothered to wait till she is sleeping to do her hair!
I have realised that Afro Hair is not as complicated as I once thought. Afro hair gets dry quickly which causes breakage, and limits hair growth. One of the key ways to limit breakage, improve the quality of your hair and to grow your afro hair is to put moisture back into your hair. I noticed that when I decided to constantly moisturise mine and my daughter’s hair every few days, it started to grow.
I love Shea Moisture products. They work so well with afro/curly hair, whether chemically processed, coloured or in its natural state. They get the formula spot on every time.
I picked up the Shea Moisture Jamaican Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow & Restore Leave in Conditioner, part the new Jamaican Castor Oil range. You can get this product in Boots (a UK drugstore) now. Yes I know! Finally hair types, other than straight European hair are catered for! Wohoooo! *Happy dance*
