  • Keeping Ends Healthy While In 'fro

     

    Hi, I'm new to the scene with this website and I must say htat I am very impressed as well as excitde about all it has to offer. I have been natural for almost 3 years and I have loved every minute of it. My hair has grown so much and is so healthy. Wearing my hair in a 'fro is my favorite style. HOwever, recently I got it straightened out by a brother who knows little about hair, and even less about natural hair. he trimmed my hair quite a bit and said that I should wear my hair in a 'fro less often b/c that style leaves my ends damaged since my hair coils very tightly. I honestly don't believe him since he know nothing about natural hair. I'd like to know how to maintain healthy ends while wearing my hair in a style that truly represents me; with no damaged ends. Please help

    Well I am 17 and been wearing a fro for nearly a year-I dont kno what he is saying really, but ummm I find that plaiting at night and keeping it moisturized with trimming ever so often(i have to get back to trimming) keeps the ends healthy.

    Maybe what he meant was that since while wearing your hair in a fro, you have to pick it out, and since your hair is tightly coiled, that causes damage. ??? Just guessing.

    I'm not good on trimming either but wearing a fro would have nothing to do with having healthy ends. I would just clip the ends ever so often when you have it in braids or twists, like a overnight thing. I trim mine when I have my hair in twists and when I think they look like they need it. BTW remember the hair grows from the roots not the ends.

    I don't have a fro, but perhaps makking sure that you use some form of moisturizer, from roots to ends (such as Profectiv Root Health or Kemi-Oyl Shea Butter Pomade), or/and using olive oil on your ends. Dry ends lead to split ends, so if you keep your hair moisturized then your ends should be fine. Some ladies wet/rinse their hair daily because water is the best moisturizer, however, if your hair takes long to dry, this might not be the best option. Trims or ' dusting' (only taking over about 1/8 of an inch) 'every once in a while' (maybe every two months) will keep split ends bay...
