5 Natural Hair Hacks

June 30, 2021

1, If you have KINKY hair,BRAIDS it EVERY TIME YOU finish WASHING IT,Might seem like common sense,but not many Naturalistas braids the hair when it is wet,This method helps keep your hair stretch Naturally without using heat and also prevents tangles especially if you’re a person who always air your hair.

2, Sleep with your hair in a satin bonnet every night.try using the one with hairband instead of elastic satin bonnet and you should also avoid putting your elastic satin bonnet on your hairline.

3, Whatever you do,DO NOT DRY YOUR HAIR WITH A TOWEL,use T-Shirt instead.this will help stop frizziness and dryness.

4, Using DIY product on your hair, can really contribute to fast growth for people who is looking for fast growth,If you feel like your have been in an uphill battle for a long time with your natural hair ,oh Well try incorporating Massage into your hair routine After using DIY Homemade product.

5,  almost every Naturalistas will say satin Bonnets should be your bestie but most ladies don’t know that we should have 1-2 satin bonnet,because you will need one satin bonnet for night and the other for day time,this will really help you not to rush  doing your hair if you’re going somewhere and didn’t do your hair on time.

this is the Bonus tips,as I was saying massage is very good for hair growth,and I always love to do my massage with essential oils,alright we all know about essential but some people don’t know which ones that can stimulate hair growth, that why I got you cover with some of my favorite hair boosting hair grow oils,To grow your edges faster it can be a struggle that’s why you need to be careful on how you handle those little baby hairline.

6 ingredients to make natural hair naturally soft without rinsing out 

Fresh Aloe Vera gel.

Vegetable Glycerin 

DIY Hair softener 

Sunflower oil and Grapeseed oil

Peppermint oil 


1. Wash your Aloevera plant and remove the gel from inside of the leafy

Then mix all the ingredients together 

Application time

I will recommend you apply this mixture on a clean dry hair,you can either apply leave in conditioner before  using your fresh aloe Vera juice or after you’re done shampooing and conditioner your hair use the aloe Vera juice instead,usually after I’m done washing my hair I’m like either tired or my hair is taking long to dry because of the leave-in conditioner or because of the thickness of my hair.

So I apply my leave-in conditioner after I’m done washing then I put it into cornrows or box braids and cover up my hair with my satin bonnet and I usually take down my cornrows or braids the next day and apply this Diy leave-in conditioner on my hair,to keep the Diy gel fresh make sure to make it the same day you’re about to use it.

then Use this aloe vera gel juice directly in your hair or scalp and you can use any of these oils I just recommend of your choice.

Welcome back to SoniaChic95 website,alright Soft luminous hair is a common goal for natural Sisters and brothers,However,life can get the best of your hair — whether due to aging,lifestyle habits or poor hair care techniques—many things can damage your already delicate hair cuticles,Over time,natural oils may be stripped from your hair which may lead to dryness.

Still,this doesn’t mean you have to settle for dry brittle hair,Softening otherwise dry and coarse hair can be treated with home remedies,All you’ll need is a combination of moisturizing ingredients and healthy hair care habits.Consider the following remedies and steps you can easily add to your own routine.

1, Know your hair type

Understanding your hair type is important before trying/any-home-remedies.Dry,coarse.hair.can.certainly use some extra TLC but straight hair may not need as much oil compared with curly hair.This is because natural oils from the scalp move easier through the cuticle the straighter your hair is.

Although you may know your hair type now,it can change as you get older because of a decrease in natural oil production.Your hair might also be different based on the climate you live in and what season it is.

2, Argan oil

Derived from Moroccan-argan-fruit extracts,-this oil-is.known-for.its.moisturizing-properties-While-research.involving argan oilTrusted Source and hair care is lacking,

this remedy shows a lot of promise.

Cosmetic manufacturers have added the oil to numerous shampoos,conditioners,and treatments,but extremely dry hair may benefit more from pure argan oil.(Get some here)Plus,you won’t have to deal with any chemicals or other unwanted additives,Apply as you would olive oil — in a single,even layer. 

3, Moisture starts on your wash day,Firstly is get your self a sulfate free shampoo.Followed buy a conditioner/ deep conditioner Or you can DIY conditioner using aloe and peanut oil it will leave your hair soft like a cotton candy,

Hot oil treatment or pre-poo.

Choose any oil you want and heat it up apply it on your scalp to the whole part of the hair,cover with plastic cap then towel.Sit under hooded dryer if don't have take a dampen towel and heat it up on microwave then wrap it around your head. Rinse your hair and do the 

LOC/LCO method

Since my natural hair is 4c and 4b I usually don’t go without the LOC Method,we are like coffee and cream haha,alright this is how it goes,

L-liquid or leave in



This is a method of how we re-moistutise our hair.Water is where the moisture comes from.Oils and creams/ butters don't have water so we have to add to our selfs.oils and butters are sealants.You will have to do a loc method each Time your hair feels dry.

After all that work done,we don't want that moisture to go to waste right.That's where satin or silk Bonnett comes in. satin or silk helps retain moisture unlike other fabrics that sucks moisture out of your hair.

4, Use a weekly hair mask

Aloe Vera gel oil can be an effective way to add much-needed moisture to dry hair.But if you’d rather not mess with pure oils,you can look for a ready-to-use hair mask instead.

Used on a weekly basis,a hair mask can help your hair draw in moisture more effectively for softer hair over time.Apply-on-damp

-not wet)-hair.after.shampooing,then.

rinse out after five minutes.

5, Bentonite clay

Bentonite.clay.is.a.volcanically-derived.substance that’s.traditionally.used.for.digestive.ailments.It’s also.sometimes.used.for.skin.issues,like.eczema,dryness and bug bites.

6, Research is ongoing about the possible effects of bentonite clay for your hair,though most related studiesTrusted Source have focused on animals

Proponents believe that the clay can help clean your hair while also balancing out moisture levels. It may even help with dandruff.

7, To use bentonite clay for your hair:

Get some bentonite clay.

Combine equal parts clay with water or vinegar,to form a thick paste.Apply in the shower as you would a store-bought hair mask.Don’t wash with hot water

Hot water can cause damage to dull,dry hair. Opt for lukewarm water instead.

8, Avoid certain protective hairstyling 

Hair accessories can be a fun and easy way to change up your look.Some accessories,such as elastic bands,are even essential when you’re working out or playing sports.But over time, mthe pulling and tightening action from these hairstyles can damage the hair cuticle.This can lead to dryness,and even patchy hair loss.

9, Go easy on frequent treatments

When you get a quality hair treatment, whether it’s a color job,perm,or straightening/relaxer treatment,the results can be addictive.You may even be tempted to get another treatment after a few weeks.

Professional hair treatments can even make your hair soft and shiny,but many of the effects are temporary.At the core of each treatment are chemicals,which can dry out and damage your hair after a while.

Your best bet is to go easy on the treatments with a minimum of six weeks in between each session.

It takes time

It can take time and experimentation to find products that give you the soft hair you’re looking for.The above remedies can help soften your hair over time.While a hair mask or a plant oil can provide immediate softness,the effects will wear off after a few days until you reapply again.

Other changes to your routine will take longer to impact your hair — this can take several weeks depending on the extent of dryness or damage.

10, Don’t forget to Drink lots of water as moisture comes from within,even for hair.Good and strong hair starts with what you put in your hair,continue reading

.Food Hair Growths

If your hair continues to be excessively dry despite the above remedies,see your doctor. Extensive dryness that won’t self-correct with healthy lifestyle habits could indicate an underlying medical condition,such as nutritional deficiencies.
