20130822-212259.jpg

A big part of a successful hair journey is the ability to retain your length and this can be achieved through consistent moisture and sealing. Your weekly deep conditioning also plays an important role as well. If you’re desirous of retaining length, then you’ve got to do the following:

1. Detangle gently by using a detangling spray.

2. Do Oil-pre poos.

3. Keep your hair moisturized.

4. Avoid using heat on your hair.

5. Air dry consistently.

6. Use seam free comb for your hair.

7. Apply protein treatments.

8. Seal your ends.

9. Do not comb or brush your hair when wet unless your hair can withstand it.

10. Clarify regularly to avoid product build up.

11. For protective styling, choose low manipulative styles.

12. Sleep on a silk/satin pillow or invest in silk/satin hair bonnets.

13. Avoid styles that pull at your edges.

14. Massage your scalp regularly.

15. Lightly use natural oils on your scalp on alternate days.

    I want to ask a question regarding tip number 15. I have been using the Njoy Oil almost every day since I got it over 3weeks ago, have I been applying it the wrong way all this while because I haven’t been following the alternate day rule?

      Hi Moji,

      Yay!!! you finally delivered on your promise. If you are currently carrying your hair right now, it’s alright if you apply daily since you’ll be washing by the end of the week to remove all product build-up. However when you’ve got protective styles like braids or weave on, then it’s usually advisable to use natural oils on alternate days.
