People who are born to one white and one black parent usually have biracial hair – hair that is hybrid of white and black hair. People with biracial hair have really tight, convoluted hair that has a tendency of becoming dry and frizzy. Biracial hair can be managed by employing special biracial hair care tips.
Biracial hair care isn’t difficult at all but, yes, it does require you to be regular in using all the hair care tips on a routinely basis and being patient with the tips to show positive effects. Here are some beneficial biracial hair care techniques that will help you in the long run.
- Combing Biracial Hair: The very first thing you need to do is to get rid of your hairbrush as a hairbrush isn’t useful for biracial hair at all. Hairbrushes make hair hard and result in split ends. A great alternative to hairbrush is a wide-toothed wooden comb. Get a fine quality wooden comb with wide teeth; this comb does not make your hair rough and improves its quality with time. While combing your hair, first entangle the tips and then comb through the roots; this results in less hair breakage.
- Washing Biracial Hair: You need to wash your hair with a good shampoo and then condition it with a conditioner for biracial hair. However, do not wash your hair more than three times a week as regular washing can dry your hair and drain out moisture from it very quickly. Moreover, while washing your hair, refrain from using hot water; hot water dries your hair at a faster rate and makes them lifeless. On the other hand, cold water is very good for biracial hair so whenever you wash your hair, make sure that the water is cold.
- Oiling Biracial Hair: Apply almond or mustard oil to your hair 3-4 hours prior to washing it. These oils moisturize your hair and make it shiny.
Use these great biracial hair care tips and get gorgeous looking hair in a couple of weeks.
