We will start with natural hair care basics.
When you wash your hair use warm water. I like a hot shower but when you get to your hair turn down the heat. Rinsing with cool water is good for stimulating the circulation in your scalp, but I have a hard time at that.
After your shower try to use a towel to get most of the water out. Blot the hair not pulling or wring as wet hair is very fragile and vulnerable to breakage. Too much stress on wet hair can strip it of elasticity.

How to Care for Curly Hair
Have you spent time and energy trying to coerce your ringlets and waves into stick-straight strands? Sunsilk (www.gethairapy.ca) shows you how to make the most of yours:
Time is the best thing for hair when the blow drying can be skipped. So on your days off let the hairs dry naturally. When you have to get to work, pull out the blow dryer and set it on cool. Try to stop drying when the hair is just damp. There are dryers on that you can get that have a sensors in them that will automatically turn off the dryer when your hair is dry enough.
To get fuller hair flip your head upside down and fluff hair away from the scalp with your fingers, comb or brush. A tip on natural hair care when picking out a brush pick a natural-bristle brush. The nylon-bristle brush is hard on hair and will cause split ends.
When using a comb use a wide toothed comb. If your hair is long start at the bottom and working is sections work up to the roots. This should help with the knots and snarls. If you do get knots and snarls try using a conditioner. When working with knots gently pull them apart with your fingers first the us a comb. Always start at the bottom.
At the end of the day a good brushing before bed time will help close the day. It will also help with dandruff and stimulates the circulation of your scalp.
As with natural skin care, natural hair care has the same enemy. The sun and wind. Too much and the hair will become damaged and dry out. So when out in the sun wear a hat and there are even sun screen's for the hair.
Back To School: Help mom achieve a passing grade . . . for her natural hair care
So here's a multiple choice survey question for you. With a new school year just launched, which of the following have you had to sacrifice to accommodate the ever-growing list of your kids' demands:
B. Your hair care
C. Time for a cup of coffee
D. Sleep and more sleep.
Now, we probably can't help you if you answered any or all of A, C or D, but we can offer a little relief for the morning hair dilemma, especially since when it comes to passing out grades for our hair we're usually our own toughest critic. So, here's a mini tutorial from your friends and fellow Moms at Suave with tips by Harry Josh, celebrity stylist to Renee Zellweger and Reese Witherspoon:
. De-stress Your Hair Care Routine
- Pushed for time in the morning? Try washing your hair the night before. It'll be far more manageable than freshly washed hair. Just wet it just before styling or throw it up in a funky do.
. Get the Right Haircut
- Finding it a challenge to keep up with your cuts? The new trend in haircuts is to have blunt layers instead of shaggy layers. This flattering style will continue to look great as it grows out - perfect for Moms who don't always have time for the salon.
. Mom-Proof Your Style
- If you're a wash-and-go kind of girl, don't go for a high-maintenance style. If your hair is naturally curly and you live in a wet or humid city, forget about that sleek Hollywood look for rushed weekday mornings. Choose a shampoo and conditioner, like Suave Professionals Sleek, that's a great choice when you're craving manageability.
. Add Oomph Without Caffeine
- After a hectic morning of preparing breakfast, lunch and getting the kids off to school, a double espresso isn't the only thing that can give you a boost. Try the salon-tested Suave Professionals Volumizing Mousse to put the life back in your hair. Apply mousse when hair is fresh out of the shower and lift the roots as you blow-dry for a style that won't quit.
