Let's kick things off by getting to know your curly hair a bit better. According to Andre Walker's Hair Typing System, curly hair comes in three subtypes:
3A Hair Type:
Spring, loopy, and beautiful, type 3a curly hair is defined by big loose ringlets. Because curls can feel like they have a mind of their own, it’s important to get the right routine and products in place to keep those curls defined, while protecting your strands from dryness and damage.
3B Hair Type:
Has a medium-tight, S-shaped spiral curls that resemble ringlets. If you have a feel of the strands, you’ll find that they have a mixture of thin and thicker strands, so 3b hair has fine and medium hair texture.
3C Hair Type:
The home of tight, perfectly curly, densely-packed curls with thick, coarse-textured or thin, fine-textured strands or a mix of both textures. Its curls are as wide as a pencil or straw and resemble corkscrews. This hair subtype may not always be well-defined but has a lot of body and volume.
When it comes to curly hair types, the name of the game is volume and nourishment. Type 3 curls can suffer from dryness because natural oils have a difficult time travelling down a curl shape, leading to oiliness at the roots and breakage at the ends.
Use products that don’t dry out hair, cause frizz, or lead to product buildup. Avoid shampoos with silicone and sulfates, as these can block moisture from getting to the hair shaft.
Dry hair can be a common problem, using products with oils like argan oil or jojoba oil will keep hair hydrated and looking great. Be sure to incorporate leave-in conditioner into your routine so that your hair has continuous moisture even after it’s washed and dried.
Pro-tip: Use a silk scarf or cap when you sleep, or use a silk pillowcase to reduce frizz at night. During the day, style wet hair with anti-frizz sprays and try to avoid touching hair.
As we age, it's essential to recognize the key nutrients we need more of to maintain healthy hair. Let's give your hair the nutrients it craves. Collagen, iron, and vitamin D are your hair's best friends.
Collagen: Naturally diminishes as we age, leading to thinning hair and ageing skin. Incorporating collagen-rich foods and supplements into your diet can boost the strength and elasticity of your hair and skin. Marine Collagen is often considered the best choice as it's easily absorbed and utilized by the body.
Iron: An iron deficiency, often indicated by low ferritin levels can disrupt the normal hair growth cycle, causing more hair follicles to shed prematurely, a condition known as telogen effluvium. Therefore consuming iron-rich foods can help ensure you have an adequate supply.
Vitamin D: More than just for strong bones, it's crucial for happy hair follicles. A vitamin D deficiency can disrupted the health of your hair, potentially lead to hair thinning or even hair loss. During winter months, boost your daily supplementation and don't skimp on this vitamin.
1. Scalp Massages:
Treat your hair to regular scalp massages for increased blood circulation. Be gentle; we're promoting growth, not damage.
The heightened blood flow, in turn, nourishes and supports the health of your hair, aiding in its growth and overall vitality.
2. Protect Your Edges:
Preserve your hairline and edges by taking proactive measures against traction alopecia—a condition arising from persistent hair pulling that can result in follicle damage and eventual hair loss.
Incorporate protective hairstyles that do not pull tightly on your edges like this refined twist-out into your styling repertoire.
3. Reduce Stress:
Consider adding stress-reduction techniques into your daily routine, such as meditation, long walks or yoga.
Prolonged stress can elevate cortisol levels, a hormone that, when imbalanced, may adversely affect hair follicles, potentially leading to hair loss.
