Wedding Wednesday... Natural (Heat-free) hair addition

Natural hair has taking over. Everyone is focusing on how to maintain healthy hair.
There are many ways to develop and maintain healthy hair, but it takes consistency. 
I tell my clients all the time, "I can tell you what to do to have healthy hair, but if you don't implement the things I tell you at home then it doesn't work. You'll have to decide if you want mediocre hair or fabulous hair. The best way for me as a professional to tell if the hair is healthy is the sheen on the hair. If you have a nice head of hair, then a healthy sheen will be reflected. 
It's important to understand the structure of hair. I have compared hair to a plant in previous post and know you see why. Check out the picture below...

 I'm all about the science behind the way the hair grows. Some people have been abusing their hair for years and have damaged the follicle bulb. If that bulb is damaged, then it's permanently damaged.
That's why it is so important to take care of the head of hair you get.  
When you are wearing natural styles it's important to set a schedule for necessary maintenance. 
Protein treatments every 4-6 weeks (more often if hair is shedding more than normal)
Trims every 6-8 weeks 
Hydration treatments varies, based off personal preference
Moisture is the most important component in maintaining good haircare. Natural hair gets dry easily especially based off the climate you live in. Overall you have to keep your hair hydrated.  
No matter what style you wear, you should always be laying your head on satin. Whether it's a satin scarf, bonnet, or pillow case. 
Satin locks in your moisture, cotton dries out your hair.

*Tress tip- You can steam conditioner into your scalp by wrapping a hot towel around your hair and placing a plastic cap over it. It penetrates the conditioner into your hair.
