The Do’s and Don’ts For Maintaining Black Hair
Black hair is beautiful; don’t you agree? At Madamenoire, we believe that’s attributed to our strong roots and the various coily, curly, and kinky textures that unite us. Oh! Let’s not forget the dynamic styles that we can flip together with the wave of a magic wand – called the right hair tools. From classy up dos to savvy ponytails, there is a lot to know about what works and what doesn’t with our beautiful, yet diverse black manes. Ready to switch things up for the fall season? Before you do –we partnered with L’Oréal Paris to take a peek at our list of the do’s and don’ts when it comes to maintaining black hair and the L’Oréal products that should be a part of your hair care arsenal!
4 Do’s and Don’ts When It Comes to Black Hair!
1) Don’t Over Use Your Favorite Products
Don’t we all want our hair to look healthy and shiny? Hair oils such as L’Oréal Advanced Haircare – Extraordinary Oil Lustrous Oil Serum should do the trick! Before you add too much product to your hair, we recommend applying your favorite oil in moderation, because you don’t want to weigh your hair down. For fine hair – less equals more shine. For thicker hair – start with a quarter size portion and then apply more if necessary. Let your hair follicles breath with ease.
2) Do Take a Break From Protective Styles!
Yes, we love our weaves and braids, however, don’t be afraid to let your natural coily, kinky, or straight hair shine through. Protective styles are wonderful when you are facing a hair transition or if you are athletically-driven and don’t want the burden of damp hair from the gym! Please note, extensive exposure to protective styles, especially when you add synthetic pieces could damage your hair – so take a breather. Give your hair a 3-to-6-month break and keep it nurtured with L’Oréal Advanced Haircare – Extraordinary Transforming Oil-in-Cream.
3) Don’t Forget to Wash and Condition Regularly
Sounds like a headache right? Just know extending your wash and conditions too long can contribute to heavy hair that lacks luster. We recommend washing your hair at least every 10 days or when you notice product build up. L’Oréal Advanced Haircare – Extraordinary Oil Nourishing Shampoo and L’Oréal Advanced Haircare – Extraordinary Oil Nourishing Conditioner system eliminates dryness in just 1 wash, while nourishing hair without the weight. Your hair will go from dry to silky and soft in a snap.
4) Know the Benefits of Your Favorite Products
We all have a collection of go-to products. It’s important that we choose products that not only work well individually with our premium texture, but also when they have to work together. We love the L’Oréal Advanced Care – Extraordinary Oil system because of its ability to nurture, condition and protect all hair types during one super fab style session.
