MORE TIPS FOR BIRACIAL HAIR
Always comb biracial hair when it is wet. Never comb when it is dry. You can even comb your hair out in the shower after applying conditioner before you rinse. Use a very wide tooth comb, and also apply a good moisturizer to the hair to reduce the friction if you are detangling. Our Round Rock hair salon suggests that you do not use a brush. Try to be patient and careful and work in sections. Divide the hair into 4 or more sections and tie each section off gently. After you have worked out the tangles from one section, tie it off and work through another section.
AIR DRY WHEN POSSIBLE
After a shampoo, use a soft towel such as a microfiber towel, and blot your hair instead of rubbing it vigorously. If possible, let your hair air dry naturally instead of using a heat or a blow dryer. If you must blow dry your hair, always choose the cool setting.
SLEEP ON A SILK PILLOW CASE OR USE A SILK BONNET
A silk pillow case provides a soft surface for your hair while you sleep and will reduce friction. Plus it’s a luxuriously soft treat for your face as well.
TIPS FOR PONY TAILS
Braids or twists can be great styles for biracial hair, but always use caution to make sure that the style you are choosing is not damaging your hair or causing it to break. If you use bands, make sure that you do not use regular rubber bands from an office supply store. Rubber bands can cause friction and pulling on the hair which can make the hair break. Choose smooth covered bands that are especially designed for pony tails and braids. Also make sure that there is not a metal clip on the bands which can also damage fragile hair.
When pulling the hair back into ponytails, make sure not to pull the hair back too tightly. Ponytails and braids that are too tight can cause stress on the hair and can lead to hair loss and breakage.
