Your hair can now look healthy and beautiful as Venus unveils some of the secrets to heavenly African hair. Our Hair Nutritionist takes us through a few tips that will ensure your locs remain looking luscious.
- Moisturize your hair
Just as you need to moisturize your skin, you also need to moisturize your hair as often as possible. Moroccan Argan Oil hair treatment provides the nourishment that you hair needs in terms of moisturization. Moroccan Argan Oil is a natural healing oil packed with vitamin A and E which promotes healthy, shiny hair.
- Use products from the same line for the best result
All the products in the Venus Beautiful Essence range have been formulated to work one after the other. If you use the Venus Relaxer, follow up with the Neutralizing Shampoo and treat your hair with the Venus treatment. For the relaxer you may opt for either super or regular depending on how coarse or fine your hair is. Consult your hair dresser on which relaxer to use to prevent breakage. The Neutralizing Shampoo regulates the pH level of the hair after the relaxer application and also has a colour indicator that lets you know when all of the relaxer has been rinsed off. The Venus treatment is then used to give your hair body and a lustrous shine.
- Avoid very tight braids
Braiding the hair is an example of a protective style, however if the braids are pulled too tight on the scalp, it can cause alopecia. Alopecia is hair loss which comes about when too much strain is applied on the hair strand. Tight ponytails can also lead to hair breakage and should be avoided as much as possible.
- Cut off your split ends regularly
Split ends occur when the strand of hair frays at the tip and split ends restrict the growth of healthy hair. There is no treatment for split ends!! Make sure you cut off your split ends every 4-6 weeks. Don’t use ordinary scissors when dealing with split ends as they are not suitable for this purpose. Use the recommend hair scissors to trim your ends as they give a sharp and precise cut.
- Alternate your hair treatments
Venus provides a variety of hair treatments for you to choose from. Choose a hair treatment that works well with your hair condition. Use Moroccan Argan Oil treatment to soften the hair, Olive Oil treatment to make the hair shiny and Manuka Honey and Tea Tree treatment to combat dandruff.
- Cover your hair when outdoors
When you expose your hair to the harsh heat rays of the sun, it is more likely to get damaged. As a general rule, it is a good idea to cover your hair with a light scarf or a funky hat to prevent the sun rays from reaching your hair. The scarf or hat can also double up as a fashion accessory even during cold weather when the rays from the sun as not as intense.
- Avoid overuse of heated implements
We are all guilty of blow drying our hair into sleek straight styles. This can lead to heat damage on the hair and make it weak. Other heated implements that we tend to overuse include flat ironing and extremely hot hair dryers.
If you consistently follow these simple hair tips, your hair will be the talk of the town.
