Sometimes your hair just needs a little extra love. For example, because you've had it in box braids for a long time, hidden it under a (beautiful!) Lace wig or because you just haven't had time for it. To give your hair a boost again, you can do various treatments yourself at home:
Steaming your hair uses moist heat to open the hair cuticle so that a conditioner or hair oil penetrates deep into the hair. It is one of the best treatments you can do if you suffer from extremely dry frizzy and curly hair. The heat helps to moisturize dry hair. In addition, it provides super soft curls and steam treatment stimulates hair growth. Combine it with a scalp massage to stimulate blood circulation and give your hair extra pampering.
Dirty hair, an itchy scalp, dandruff and oily hair. By giving the hair a detox treatment you remove all chemicals and products that have lingered in the hair. Of course you can give the hair a good wash, but a detox goes just a step further. You not only ensure a clean, fresh start, but also take a closer look at the products you use. Check the ingredient list of your hair products. Does it contain harmful substances? And what products do you have at home? Aren't you missing something? In any case, this is how you start with a detox:
You can do a good detox with a clay mask. These clays are great for frizzy and curly hair:
Bentonite clay: This clay has a high concentration of minerals, including silica, calcium, magnesium, sodium, iron and potassium. It also absorbs and purifies clogged pores, impurities and chemicals.
Ghassoul Clay: An excellent clay for removing impurities, toxins and product build-up. It cleanses the hair without stripping it of its natural oils. It nourishes the hair with essential minerals and vitamins, while moisturizing and making your hair soft. As icing on the cake, it also provides improved curl definition.
Protein treatments are essential in hair care for customers who have undergone a chemical hair treatment, such as a relaxer or hair color treatment. They strengthen the hair, help prevent hair breakage and restore elasticity.
Make sure you provide the correct moisture / protein balance. The ratio of moisture to protein is 70:30. This is the only way to keep the hair healthy and to stimulate hair growth. Too much moisture or too much protein makes the hair weak and brittle.

4. Scalp Treatment
Depending on the condition of your scalp, you choose a suitable treatment. If you have often worn very tight braids, you may experience hair loss around the hairline. The first advice is to stop braiding tightly. To stimulate hair growth again, you can offer a scalp treatment with oil, such as pumpkin seed oil. This oil is rich in vitamins A, E, K and B and promotes hair growth. Not a fan of holistic hair care? Most hair care brands also have products to treat the scalp.
Do you suffer from dandruff? Then it is better not to treat it with a hair oil. You will have the best success with a good anti-dandruff shampoo that is gentle on frizzy and curly hair. Always combine an anti-dandruff shampoo with a moisturizing shampoo or conditioner for hydration.
