Protecting Your Hair

When using heat styling tools, you'll want to protect your natural hair. Africa Miranda, natural hair model and hair care writer, recommends using a heat protectant product with oil as a main ingredient. Smooth the heat protectant onto your hair before blow-drying to protect hair and give it a healthy sheen.

Oils and Natural Texture

Natural hair can be dry and water-sensitive. When caring for natural hair, it is best to apply a dab of natural oil, such as coconut oil, to your ends after you blow-dry.

Bottom Line

Using the right oils on natural hair is beneficial and causes no damage. Using a heat-protectant with natural oil as a main ingredient will help protect your tresses from drying out during heat styling.
