How to Manage Biracial hair
The entire process of managing and caring for biracial hair can be divided into these simple steps:
- Acceptance: Accept the fact that you have frizzy, kinky hair and be at peace with it. The more you adjust to this reality, the easier it will become for you to like it and look for remedies to assuage your wiry hair problems.
- Wash your Hair not more than 3 Times a Week: Biracial hair is generally very dry and if you wash your hair more than 3 times a week, you will drain out every drop of moisture from it, making it even drier and brittle too. It is best to wash your hair twice a week but if it becomes greasy quickly, it is better to wash it thrice a week but not more than that. Use a shampoo and conditioner that has hair-softening agents like almond oil, yogurt and mango and Shea butter.
- Use Conditioning Masks for your hair: Conditioning masks can be easily made at home and are very good for biracial hair. One effective mask is “honey and olive oil” mask. Mix 2 tbsp. of honey with 3tbsp. of olive oil; heat the mixture in microwave for about 20-30 seconds. If the mixture is too hot, wait for it to become slightly cooler and then massage it on your hair; keep it on for around 30 minutes then rinse it off with cold water.
