Caring for Ethnic Hair

Caring for Ethnic Hair

Taking care of Ethnic hair can sometimes be really hard, especially if you’re not sure which products or formulations will work. We’ve put together a list of the top 4 tips to take care of Ethnic hair and included some of our favourite products from our Balmain and CHI Deep Brilliance ranges.

Start from within

Protecting your hair is not just limited to the external efforts that you can adopt. Many of the best treatments for your hair starts from within and once you have the basics sorted, then any product you use on your hair will work to its full potential. Be sure to be well hydrated as dehydration can cause a myriad of hair problems such as dryness, dullness and brittle strands. Following a good diet and avoiding greasy take-outs is a major contribution to achieving stronger and healthier hair.


Moisturising shampoo and conditioner

The CHI Deep Brilliance Shampoo and Conditioner (R790.00) is a brilliant duo to gently cleanse hair with a hydrating blend of Olive Oil & Monoi Oil, providing optimum moisture while leaving hair soft, silky, and manageable. Together, they strengthen and hydrate hair while improving the condition of dry and damaged hair.

Comb Smart

The biggest mistake you could make it to comb ethnic hair while dry. Be sure to use moisturising treatment to not only provide hydration to your hair but to also prevent breakage and frizziness. 

Using a detangling comb such as the Balmain Styling Comb is key to detangling and brushing your hair without causing any damage or ripping your hair from the scalp. This professional comb is covered in 24k gold and gives your hair body and shine.


Protect your scalp

The CHI Deep Brilliance Soothe and Protect Scalp Protecting Cream (R350.00) is formulated with a rich blend of Olive and Monoi oil that works to protect the hair and scalp during the relaxer service. A unique blend of essential oils, botanicals, herbs and vitamins offer a soothing barrier against scalp irritation and discomfort during processing, resulting in the hair and scalp feeling calm, soothed and nourished
