Hi guys!! This is my first blog EVER so please bare with me lol. Recently I’ve received a lot of questions on how I maintain my hair and what products I use to keep it moist and soft…well…the answer is Cantu.
I’ve been natural since the day I was born (August 14th 2000 if anybody’s wondering) and boy it’s been a journey. I’m not going to sit here and tell you it’s easy because it’s not. It’s hard work to maintain and takes A LOT of time. Many people say being heat free with your hair is the way forward, but if you have curls like mine you’ll know it’s a struggle to NOT blowdry your hair. Lately, I discovered a heatfree routine to dry my hair and keep it moist
Step 1: Having big hair, I parted my hair into sections of roughly 12 then sprayed each section with cold water.
Step 2: I then used the Cantu complete condintionig co-wash and ran it through each section.
Step 3: Each section was then put in twists and once this was done I used a clear plastic shower cap to cover my hair for roughly an hour.
Step 4: Each section was then thoroughly washed out with cold water and dried with an old t-shirt (using a towel strips out the oil).
Step 5: I moisturised each section using the Cantu leave in conditioner then put each section into bantu knots.
I kept my hair in bantu knots for about 4 days simply because I liked the style but you don’t have to do the same as a day will do. I then tried different styles like plaiting around my head to create an alice band and a simple mohawk. To define my curls and keep them bouncy, I sometimes used the Cantu dry deny moisture seal gel and covered my hair with a silk headscarf every night, yep ladies every night. Mid-week I continued to use the Cantu leave in conditioner to lock the moisture in my hair.
I hope this helps all you natural heads out there!
Peace Out A Town, Lala xo
