1. Wear low manipulation styles that will last a few days to a month to protect your natural hair.
Flat twists, braids, and two-strand twists are styles that will allow your hair to breathe and keep your hands and combs out of it. Low manipulation hairstyles or protective hairstyles will help prevent breakage and damage.
2. Wear a Satin Lined Cap (Slap) or other satin or silk covering to bed or throughout the day.
It will help to retain moisture and protect your style, keeping it fresh. Satin Lined Caps are great for running errands and protect your hair against harsh elements, including the rain or the sun. Satin bonnets and scarves are great if you don’t move around too much in your sleep. If you’re a mover and a shaker in bed, the Satin Lined Cap is the best way to go.
3. Co-Wash Your Hair with only conditioner and no shampoo at all.
Co-washing your hair is like watering a plant, according to Natural Neicey. This is great for transitioning and helps add moisture in your hair.

4. Detangle with a wide-tooth comb or a detangling hair brush to prevent extra breakage and prevent pain while detangling.
Remember to moisturize your hair before you detangle. Kimberly’s favorite detangling hair brush is by Felicia Leatherwood.
5. Find out your hair porosity level.
Kimberly’s eBook Curly Halo teaches you about hair porosity and how to find your porosity type.
6. Keep your scalp clean.
A clean and healthy scalp aids in hair growth, as build-up will actually keep your hair from growing.
Care for your scalp and nurture your hair with Kimberly Elise’s very own handcrafted Alchemy 27, an all-natural beauty serum for all hair types.
7. Deep condition your hair because it will help your hair to be shiny, healthy, and moisturized.
Deep-condition your hair at least once a week (if you have dry hair) or once a month.
8. Be consistent and build a regimen.
Find out what works for you. Maybe it’s washing your hair weekly, deep conditioning monthly, and co-washing twice a week. Whatever you do, be consistent. Don’t just wear a satin scarf to bed a few nights a week, wear it every night. Being consistent will help your hair get used to a healthy hair regimen. Check out NaturalNeiicey’s Nighttime Maintenance Routine to learn more about building a regimen before going to bed.
9. Get rid of the heat.
“Don’t be flat-ironing your hair everyday!” Natural Neicey says. Heat can cause serious damage and prevent growth.
10. Trim your hair as needed.
Do so only when you need to in order to get rid of split ends or dry ends. Natural Neicey trims her hair every 6 months.
