I mean, think about the routines we go through...
...forever trying to ensure that you are using the best products, establishing and maintaining curl patterns, generating shine where it doesn't exist, moisturizing, defining kinks and natural 4C curls, and detangling these tresses if they are not tucked away in a fabulous protective style.
Unfortunately, what you do during waking hours is just half the battle.
Here are five things you should have in place every night to ensure that you have healthy hair.
In summary, if you are skipping your nighttime ritual for caring for your 4C hair, you are potentially negating all your efforts for achieving and maintaining healthy natural hair.
Your aim each night is to protect your hair by using products such as leave-in conditioner and moisture-sealing oils that help to seal in moisture.
Additionally, you want to minimize friction between your hair and your pillow so that you do not generate frizz or trigger split ends or breakage.
Taking these small steps in your night routine for 4C natural hair, every.... night.... will further boost the health of your kinky curly gorgeous hair.
