Learn when to trim your hair.
The time in between leaving the hair salon and begging your hairdresser for your next appointment can be crucial. Learning how fast your hair grows while managing the texture of your hair can be hard at first but you’ll soon learn. Try scheduling your salon visits every 6 weeks and see how you manage.
Lock in that moisture.
Sometimes using heat can be inevitable but when you do use your heating tools, keep your hair moisturized. Especially your ends! Using a leave in conditioner or co-washing on your hair can help keep your hair moisturized. (We love Eden Bodyworks Coconut Shea Leave In Conditioner!)
Keep those edges slick!

You can invest in a stick pomade like Big Head by Tigi Hair Stick, ORS Olive Oil edge Control or, set it with Motions Styling Lotion.
