Tips Submitted for April Issue by Teneya Gholston, Hair Care Expert, Creme of Nature

Don’t neglect your natural hair while wearing and styling your new weave. A plant does not grow without proper nutrients- neither does your hair! These simple tips, which feature Creme of Nature products infused with Certified Organic Ingredients will help you protect, nourish, and hydrate your natural hair using a special combination of nature’s most restorative elements, while you work it out with your weave.

KEEP IT CLEAN
Shampoo your hair regularly with a conditioning and moisturizing shampoo to keep your scalp clean. Dirt, sweat, styling products and natural oils are some of the ingredients that interfere with a healthy scalp. Often, your natural hair & scalp can become dehydrated, and brittle while wearing weaves because of product build-up and a lack of moisture. For a great shampoo to add moisture to the hair try Creme of Nature® Kiwi & Citrus Ultra Moisturizing Shampoo for Dry, Brittle or Color Treated hair.

MOISTURIZE
Continue to condition your own hair on its regular schedule. To help maintain and protect your hair keep adding moisture into the hair with conditioning treatments. Try Creme of Nature® Chamomile & Comfrey Nourishing Conditioner for Dehydrated Hair. Certified organic chamomile soothes and detangles while healing comfrey moisturizes and protects. Need a quick fix? Opt to use the Creme of Nature® Lemon Grass & Rosemary Leave-In Creme Conditioner which quickly softens and conditions. Since it is a leave-in, the conditioner will continue to nourish your hair until your next shampoo.

NOURISH THE HAIR
Be sure your natural hair does not dry out and become brittle while in braids, because of neglect. To prevent breakage and promote growth keep this hair moisturized and add nutrients that will continue to strengthen while the hair is resting. Applying a daily cream treatment to edges, natural hair around braids and to any loose natural hair will keep it strong and protected. Creme of Nature®’s Red Clover & Aloe Daily Breakage Relief is the perfect daily treatment to apply to hair to increase strength and prevent damage.

WEAVE TO WEAVE
Every time you take the weave out it is important to trim and deep condition your hair in between weaves. Keeping your hair trimmed will cut back on split ends and damage to your hair. A deep strengthening treatment will keep your hair strong and well nourished. Try the new Creme of Nature® Jojoba & Olive Oil Moisture Active Treatment, which uses a nutrient rich formula to strengthen and restore manageability.
