Natural Hair hacks for beginners for healthy hair growth


The following hacks will give you a smooth sailing in your hair care journey, help you attain soft, manageable, healthy and longer hair. As a beginner, you’ll find these tips helpful.

Natural Hair Hacks you Should Know.

Sectioning/ Working in sections.

This is that one hack I wish I learned earlier in my hair care journey, it would have saved me lots of tangles and having some hair sections moisturized and others dry as a desert. Work in sections mostly when applying products especially moisturizing products, when detangling, installing a protective style like twists and braids. Sectioning saves you time and you use less product unlike when dealing with a huge chunk of hair.

Banding your twists for more length.

As we keep and moisturize our twists, they tend to shrink and if you installed twists on wet hair, your twists will shrink as they dry. Banding your twists has to be one of my favourite hacks.
How do you do it? Start by sectioning your twists into 4-8 sections or more depending on your hair volume. Then hold your twists in each section from the roots to almost the ends. Don’t hold the roots too tight you don’t wanna cause tension on your scalp.

Activate Twist out Curls with Flat Twists / Braids

The longer you wear your twist outs, the looser and undefined your curls get. And that’s where this tips comes in, this hack has worked for my mini twist outs or just any twist outs. Section your hair into 2-4 parts, apply your go to curling cream or leave-in conditioner and install 2-4 flat twists. You can also choose to install 4- 8 braids. I prefer flat twists since they are easy to install and take down.

Always detangle from the ends to roots.

First, always detangle in small sections. Small sections will save you time and amount of detangler you use. The second hack is to always start from the ends of your hair and work upwards. You can start by gently detangling the ends to the roots with your fingers then finish up with a wide tooth comb or detangling brush. Also, don’t be stingy with the detangling product, add more product to parts that need it.
