DO sleep with a protective pillow case or bonnet. DO brush and detangle hair before washing. DO co-wash (with conditioner only) weekly to cleanse hair. DO use organic and sulfate-free shampoo 1-2 times per month. DO use a wide paddle brush from ends to root to detangle hair. DO let your hair air dry when wet. Be sure that hair is completely dry as damp hair can grow mold and promote matting. DO use natural oils and light serums in moderation to moisturize hair. Water-based products preferable.
