Natural Hair Care Tips for African-American Women for Fall

We love fall and the crisper, cooler temps. But the change in the season also means a change in your hair care routine--particularly if you are a woman of color who wears her hair naturally (that means no relaxer). To help us navigate the do's and don'ts of natural hair maintenance, veteran stylist Cyd Charisse of Atti2des 2 Hair & Nail Salon in Temple Hills, Maryland offered Everything She Wants some sage advice.

The stylist is a professional artistic beauty consultant and she exclusively uses the Design Essentials professional product line. Here are Cyd's tips for fab fall tresses:

  • A healthy lifestyle, nutritious diet, exercise and drinking water are excellent ways of producing healthy hair and a balanced lifestyle year-round.
  • Healthy gorgeous hair, whether it's relaxed or natural are a result of using healthy products and styling techniques. "My exclusive product line is Design Essentials," she says. "Design Essentials products provides moisturizing shampoos, deep conditioners, oils and treatments that guarantees your hair to shine, strengthen and give bounce and elasticity to your hair."
  • Use silk or satin pillowcases and scarves to keep your hair from drying and breaking off while you sleep.
  • Steaming increases blood flow into the scalp, which can lead to increased hair growth. "If your hair is dry and dull, one of the many custom blends I use from the Design Essentials Professional line is the Stimulations Super Moisturizing ConditionerHydrience Argan Moisturizing Creme and Hydrience Argan Moisture Replenishing Mist. This custom blend combination adds moisture, stimulates the scalp and adds shine to the hair.
  • The right cut makes transitioning from summer to fall hair painless. "Shaping, trims and dusting ends in my opinion are as needed. When cutting wet, I protect the hair with a light mist of the Design Essentials HCO Leave-In Conditioner. It protects the hair and avoid the ends of the hair from splitting. It is also an awesome thermal protective when air forming the hair."
