After being natural for years and talking to lots of women about this, you’ll have a better experience if you have a plan or regimen for going natural. When thinking about your plan as a natural there are many factors that impact the needs and health of your hair on a daily basis such as: your environment, the hair products that you use, your diet, just to name a few. The first step to maintaining healthy natural hair that grows and retains length is having a basic hair care regimen. So, here is my advice to all of the women who are thinking about going natural. Below are are 5 things your natural hair care regimen needs. 

1. Shampoo

First, you need a trusted and effective shampoo for your hair care regimen. You will need to find a moisturizing shampoo that you can cleanse your hair. The best moisturizing shampoos do not have ammonium or sulfates. Besides, you want a shampoo that will not leave your hair feeling tangled, dry, stripped, or dirty. Instead, you want a shampoo that is a gentle cleansers and leaves your hair feeling moisturized and soft. In other words, you want your shampoo to have you feeling like this when you’re using it. 


2. Deep Conditioner

Second, every hair care regimen for natural hair should include an ultra-moisturizing deep conditioner. It’s recommended that you deep condition your hair at least once a week for up to 20 minutes, preferably with heat under a hooded dryer. Remember, all conditioners are not created equally. There are a number of moisturizing formulas that don’t deep condition your hair very well. So, be sure to do your research to find a deep conditioner that works best for your hair. 

3. Leave-in Conditioner

Third, every natural hair care regimen needs a leave-in conditioner. The leave-in conditioner is very helpful with the detangling portion of your hair care regimen. Leave-in conditioners can also be used as moisturizers for daily use. Depending on the condition of your hair, many experts recommend that you moisturize your hair once or twice a day before bedtime and in the morning.

4. Protective Styling

Fourth, to see the results of your natural hair care regimen, you will need to incorporate styles that protect your ends and promote length retention. To put it simply, you will need to have a few goto protective styles. A protective style is any style that reduces hair combing or manipulation, keeps the hair up and off your shoulders, and cuts back on the use of heat.

5. Oils

Fifth, every natural hair care regimen needs oils. Natural oils are commonly used to seal in the moisturizer. They also help enhance the shine and pliability of hair. To achieve the best results, you need to first apply a small amount of oil on the ends of the hair. Then next step would be to work your way up the hair strand. Finding oil blends that promote stimulation to the scalp and hair growth will take this process to the next level.  One oil I recommend is the VoiceOfHair PureFix Elixir because it is all natural, vegan, paraben free, and has all of the essential ingredients that help stimulate hair growth.

Finally, just as important as it is to establish a regular hair care regimen for your natural hair, it’s also important to know when to stop and re-assess your methods. If something isn’t working well, your hair will tell you either by breaking, feeling dry, or you simply won’t see the positive results that you desire. Continue to make the necessary changes to perfect your hair care regimen so that you can rock your natural hair with confidence.
