8. With coarser kinkier hair you can use heavier products if necessary for maintaining form, style and moisture. But one must remember even with coarse hair light products are very beneficial but they have to be “saturated” with deeper techniques. EX: To gain optimum moisture that lasts a good tip would be Shamp and Wash with products as organic as you can get and right in or out of the shower apply your detangler comb/brush through with fingers or a wide toothed/bristled comb/brush. Then section the hair in 6-8 sections depending on amount of hair and apply your deep conditioner or two if that works best for you and massage into the scalp with your finger PADS never nails and work outward into your hair shafts and ends (I use squeezing motions and I go down the shafts of the hair through the ends so the moisturizer LOCKS itself in). Then you can choose to put a light mist of oil sheen to seal in the moisture.
12. Be careful with your sectioning clips and combs used. Even though the clips may only come in contact briefly with your hair get ones that help protect your hair from damage like rubber ones, plastic ones without hinges, material ones that have soft grips, or just use soft ponytails if desired. Duck bill clips are very popular and these also are very known for destroying hair since a lot of these have teeth, hinges or are metal. Pony tails and items alike are more time consuming but less strenuous on the hair.
