8 Natural Hair Hacks




Natural hair can be a challenge to manage, it can be both time and money consuming to care for but with a few tips and tricks you can save yourself some time, money and precious hair strands! I use all of these hacks regularly and they definitely work. Honestly, it doesn't matter if you're natural or relaxed adding one or two of these tips to your routine could help make your hair journey a lot smoother! Some of these are pretty well known while others you may not have thought about. Here are eight natural hair hacks that every girl should know!


 1.  Hate washing your hair while rocking protective styles?
Try baby wipes! They’re an absolute genius, no fuss, no mess method for cleaning your scalp while wearing protective styles.  It really doesn’t get any easier than this!

  2.  Buttons + hair pins = Hair accessories
 This one I picked up from a dorm mate! If you looking for cute, quirky hair accessories, stop by the fabric or craft store and pick up some buttons. Just slip a hair pin through the holes and you've got yourself a cute hair accessory. Buttons come in such a wide variety of colors, shapes and textures, the options are limited only by your imagination.

3.  Add oil to conditioner
Give your hair an extra treat by adding your favorite essential or carrier oils to store bought conditioner. 

4.  Hair Therapy Wrap/Cordless Heating Cap
This product is absolutely fantastic for making wash day easier! Pop it into the microwave for a few minutes and you’ve got the heat to give your hot oil treatments and deep conditioners an extra kick! Best of all, it's cordless so you’re not stuck in one place!

5.  Use pieces of stocking and cloth as hair ties
Really useful for when you’ve lost all your store bought hair bands! Nicked this one for Sylene. Thanks love!

        6.  Use natural soap to make your own cleanser
After using a DIY African Black Soap mixture to cleanse my hair and scalp for the last 6 months, I can honestly say that it’s cheaper for my pocket and healthier for my scalp and hair.
 
             7.  Does protective styling wreck havoc on your hairline?
This is a brilliant tip that I stole from my best friend. It’s actually quite simple. Leave your poor edges out of the style! Place your edges in a flat twist and wear your protective style down. If you want to wear it up, use a broad band or scarf to hide the undone edges.

8.  T-shirts rather than towels
This is one we’ve all probably heard before; use a t-shirt rather than a towel when drying hair to avoid extra frizz, dryness and breakage.
 


There are so many hair hacks out there and this post only includes a few of them. Do you use any of these tips and tricks in your hair care routine? Do you have any tips and tricks of your own? What hair hacks could you not live without?
