Black hair needs gentle touch.
Because Black hair is very fragile, you need to apply gentle strokes when handling it to prevent hair loss and breakage. Only use a wide tooth comb for detangling. Fine tooth combs snag and pull kinky and tightly curled hair. Also, be very gentle while brushing so you don’t snag the kinks and coils.
Black hair needs moisture, moisture, and a lot more moisture.
Black hair, ideally, must stay away from drying hair products such as gels, hair sprays, and hair mousse. If you need to set black hair, opt for leave in conditioners and styling lotions with higher moisturizing properties. This type of hair loves oil. So in case of application or use of drying styling hair products, make sure you lock in moisture afterwards with a light hair oil.
Black hair in braids or weaves can also be washed.
Braided and weaved hair is washed the same way as any other type of hair. However, more care is necessary to avoid tangles and knots from forming. And because black hair is drier compared to other hair textures, it shouldn’t be washed as frequently. A weekly shampooing and conditioning is typically more than enough.
