ladies, i just i would share this with you guys. im dominican but as you know many ppl of the dominican culture hav very course, kinky hair. remember most of the time you see a dominican with pretty hair its because there was alot of time & care invested. women in our culture take extra care of our hair.
my suggetions to you ladies:
is taking vitamins.
please ladies dont flat iron your hair to0 often bc every time you pass that iron youre damaging it.
rollerset your hair & blow it out. wrap it afterwards using a silk wrap.
if you want healthy hair you must treat it. a treatment once a week is a must!!! no questions asked. if you dont have the money to do so dont be afraid to look in the kitchen. one of my fav at home treatment is avocado, olive oil, beer, mayo, almond oil, and 1 egg mixed with conditioner. or u can add ur fav smelling oil..leave it on for as long as possible. couple of hrs will do.
make sure you wash your hair at least once a week. not washing your hair creates dandruff which im prone to for some reason.lol..
anyway, drandruff makes your hair fall out. so when you feel your head itching which is usually 1 a wk plz wash your hair even if its looking cute as ever.
a treatment which is great is alter ego. the carrot & garlic work amazing.. its about 25 dollars for a jar but trust me it smells like heaven & goes a long way.
when you wash your hair you dont need all that fancy stuff bc half the time it does more good than bad, depending on the ingredients. many times the brand shampoos overdry your hair. a head & shoulders and baby shampoo will do.
use the head & shoulders once every 2-3 months but stick to the baby shampoo which is the very best for your hair to keep its shine.
your hair & scalp needs 2 breath. dont drench your hair in oil or thick wax which not only does it dry ur hair but clogs up the hair follicols & will keep it from growing. do so but dont overdo it. i would advice use a hair serum instead. much better than grease.
i know ya may not agree with this but here it goes: dont ever perm your hair ever again..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!plz read below
ok now my all time fav is the brazilan keratine treatment. thats my #1 secret.. its like a perm except it doesnt *&%^$#@E up ur hair. instead this is a treatment which is a protein that stays in ur hair for up 2 5 months if im not mistaken. plz i beg u guys to try it. its pricey but worth every penny.. this will keep your hair thick, strong, soft & shiny.. if u do this with my other suggestions you will have beautiful hair.. & u wont ever have to perm ur hair again. just makes sure its legit bc they have some knockoffs that work but arent as potent as the original. you can buy it yourself or do it in the hair salon. i purchased bottles of this last yr from a bargain on ebay. you can also ck it out on youtube for a better idea on how you use the product.
so, these are my suggestions for beautiful hair. this is what most dominican women do to keep there hair looking right. if you have any questions or other tips feel free to post.
