Natural hair needs a lot of care to stay clean, moisturized, and healthy. One of the ways you can do that is by washing it. That said, it isn’t always obvious how you should do this.
Some people damage their hair in the process, and others have no idea how to wash it the right way and maintain healthy hair. What should you know about it?

How to Wash Natural Black Hair
1. Pre Poo With Oil
The first step to washing natural hair is to pre-poo. It’s essential because it protects your natural hair from drying up and thus keeps it moisturized. Apply natural oil on the root of your hair all the way to the tips. You can use this chance to detangle your hair as it was brittle and stiff before. Let the oils settle for 30 minutes on your hair. Rinse with running water.
2. Time To Apply Shampoo
After you wash out the pre-poo oils, apply some shampoo to your hair. Make sure you apply it on your scalp as well. Get a good lather out of it by mixing it with water before using it on your hair. During this process, you really want to massage your scalp and get it clean and fresh. When you are done, run your hair on water and rinse off all the shampoo.

3. Condition Your Hair
Apply the moisturizer from the mid-length of your hair to the tips, spread it all around it, and leave it for a few minutes. As that happens, detangle yourself again. Finish this step by washing it all out.
