of an email I received from Tabrina, Tabrina says that she does not know what it takes
to keep her African-American hair healthy and she’s been hearing this and that up in
the left and right all types of information about what to do she is super confused she’s
tired of dealing with damaged hair and she needs some answers so Tabrina thank you for
your email and I’m going to tell you the key things they need to do to keep your hair healthy
not going to fill you with a whole bunch of this whole bunch of that it’s a very simple
concept about how to keep your hair healthy and I am going to tell you how so the very
first thing you want to do is make sure you keep your hair conditioned you do this by
using quality hair conditioners quality moisturizers quality products to make sure that you can
actually keep your hair conditioned if you want more information about what kind of products
to use on your hair I’ve done a book called the black hair manual that teaches you step-by-step
what to look for for your specific type of hair and what kind of ingredients to avoid
when you are looking for products to help you with keeping your hair conditioned and
healthy the second tip goes for pretty much everyone is that you have to keep your ends
trimmed you have to keep them trimmed by making sure that you keep away damage such as single-strand
knots and incomplete splits frayed ends damaged ends on even if your hair is very porous you
will notice that you have to keep your ends trimmed because they get very dry so it is
very important that you keep the ends trimmed off your hair because if your hair is constantly
splitting and breaking at the ends you will notice that it seems as if your hair is a
growing but your hair is going from the scope is just that the ends are damaged your hair
is breaking off as fast as your hair is growing so number one keep your hair conditioned number
two keep your ends trimmed my final tip something that really stuck out to me when you said
that your is constantly suffering from damage is probably with the fact depending on the
type of tools or the amount of heat you’re using on your hair so totally eliminate heat
from your regimen or barely use heat I barely use heat to keep my hair healthy I only use
a blow dryer and the tension method to help me to dry my hair so that I can braid a lot
more easier my hair shrinks a lot so when it does dry and it’s not a more of a stretched
state it takes more effort to comb through my hair so if you barely use heat or just
don’t use heat at all of these things combine is going to put you on track for healthy hair
so number one keep your hair conditioned number two make sure keep your ends trimmed f and
ree of damage so you can actually start to gain length and number three limit your heat
usage or minimize it and if you want more step-by-step thorough instructions on exactly
what kind of regiment to implement for your certain type of hair on a detail about that

  1. how often do you recommend putting heat on ur hair? im using a blow dryer once a yea-r can I get away with twice a year?
    thanks

  2. I don't have a set trim time. I try and repair where possible HOWEVER if the damaged ends are costing me other hair then they have to go……  Now. Like single strand knots have you noticed you Never have one in a section? There's Almost Always 2 or 3. And you can tell when you have some in a section because of how it detangles it's like ………….like in winter when your hands are chapped and you run your hand over silk it catches. The sections of hair with knots in them are like that. It's just my feeling but I think those knots are doing more damage than just to that strand but also to the hair in the section once I start to manipulate it even if I manage to avoid a large tangle. So I try to Avoid them at all cost and snip them out whenever I find them.  

  3. What qualities or questions  should I ask or look for when searching for a professional stylist that specialize in caring for natural hair?

  4. Can you pls make a video of you cutting your hair so I can see how the dead end looks like? Cuz I really don't know were to stop when I do that .

  5. I went back to readers after being natural for over a year, i prefer to wear sew inns to keep from damage but now i want to have a leave out. How long should i wait between relaxing my hair and i am using a texterizer on my hair now, i want to keep some of my curl pattern.? I was relaxing monthly. My hair is dry and naturally in a 4b pattern.

  7. My hair is mostly natural and I flat iron my hair once a week. Is that okay to do for my hair ? I also deep condition and use a heat protectant spray , but my hair is also partly bleched.

  8. So true! I just did my trim with a flat iron set and I'm glad  I did it now. I had so many split ends, but now I'm good to go. I love your videos and website.

  9. So I should trim my hair every time I do it and and what conditioner should I use and I wanted to train my hair to be straight and I need a flat iron for that and that's hot

  11. Could you do a quick hair 101 video? I'm planning on adopting or fostering and have no idea where to start in case i have a child with hair that's different than mine. I've learned a few terms like porocity but i have no idea how often to wash their hair or what techniques are needed. I'm skilled with french braids and some braided updos but that's all i know. Any suggestions for someone like me who didn't grow up learning these skills?
