Hey ladies! We all know how frustrating 4c hair c n be, especially when it refuses to cooperate. Well, here are certain tips to help in achieving a more manageable hair if you’re on the 4c side.

MOISTURIZE

Be consistent in Moisturizing your 4c hair daily, this helps in improving dryness, and reflects in the condition of your scalp. You realize when your hair is dry, it can affect your scalp. Right? Right. So, in as much as you want to see progress on your hair, you should also endeavor to find a good moisturizer and work towards massaging from the roots to the ends of your hair.

DEEP CONDITION

There are many DIY deep conditioning treatments available for 4c hair, take time to browse on them and look for whichever suits your 4c hair best. Deep conditioning helps the hair in maintaining its strength and volume while ensuring that your hair is easier to manage while style or combing. Do this once in two weeks for better results.

WATER

Yes, water again! Drinking water helps in managing difficult hair, so if you ever find yourself struggling after exhausting all your efforts to manage your hair, try water. Not only does it help in improving your hair, it also affects every area of your body and causes your organs to function properly well. Drink 6-7 glasses of water a day and watch the amazing transformation it brings.

EAT HEALTHY

One way of maintaining your hair is by eating well, we already know that what goes into our bodies reflects in every inch of our appearance, thus, eating healthy should be a top priority if we want to maintain a healthy hair growth.

DETANGLE GENTLY

When you find yourself taking out a protective style, do not be rough with your hair as it can lead to hair breakage which can in turn damage your scalp and cause uneven ends. So, try as much as possible to detangle gently using your fingers before combing. This can help in reducing the number of strands you see on your comb.

GET UP SLOWLY

Let’s paint a scenario; you’ve been using your phone all day and suddenly there’s a blank screen, so you try to bring it back on and of course, it remains off. why? Why didn’t it come on immediately you pressed the switch, and why does it take seconds to load before it comes up after it’s been charged? My point exactly, the human body can be likened to a machine that runs and gets better when given adequate care and servicing.  When we rush out of bed after hours of sleep, it sends a weak signal to our brains because we need a few moments to load the devices in the body. Yea, just like your phone loads its app before coming on. So, when next you feel like rushing out of bed immediately you wake up, take a deep breathe and count 1-10, then get up slowly… Else you incur the wrath of the wobbly sensation and constant morning headaches.

DRINK UP TO 2 GLASSES OF WATER

Although when we get up every morning, there’s a longing in our bladder to release urine and this is completely normal. So, why should I drink water since I’m already expelling it out in another way? I’m glad you asked. Did you know that drinking water every morning has specific benefits like flushing out the toxins from your body? Also, it helps in preparing your body for the day’s work.

MEDITATE

This is so important especially if you are an employer of labor or an employee. Think about the things you need to achieve for the day, look over your journal and focus on doing at least 70% of your daily plan. Do this consistently and you’d be surprised how much progress you can make in such a short while.

EXERCISE

You don’t always have to visit the gym every day to keep fit. Every morning takes a few minutes (10-15) minutes to exercise and reenergize your body for the day’s work. It helps in strengthening your bones and aiding your body to function properly for the day.

ENSURE YOU HAVE YOUR BREAKFAST

Never skip breakfast! No matter how much of a hurry you are in, you should ensure that your body is equipped with the necessary nutrients for the day. Try as much as possible not to work on an empty stomach because this can in turn distort your progress for the day, as your body needs enough nutrients to be able to function properly.

Follow these tips constantly and watch your health go from 0-100 quick!
