Why give your Afro hair a hair bath?
The scalp naturally secretes a protective "oil" essential to the health of all hair types: sebum. However, in people with Afro hair, its flow is disturbed by many factors, in particular the spiral constitution of the hair fiber. Result: the hair is dry and vulnerable, prone to breakage.
That’s where oil baths come in! They make up for this lack of sebum by providing the hair with the fatty substances it needs. Performed two to three times a month, they help to restore the lipid film and give the hair a life-saving boost. Your hair will be healthy and shiny!
