Last week, we focused on makeup resolutions to help you kick off the new school year. And this week, we’re showing you how to care for your strands. Check out these tips from our expert Rochelle Mosley (a celebrity hairstylist, the author of How to Do Your Hair at Home, and the owner of Salon 804 in Harlem, NY).
Charlese, 14: “I will stop breakage so I can grow out my natural hair.”
The first thing breaking hair needs is a strengthening treatment. Try adding moisture to your hair with a mix of extra virgin olive oil and your favorite conditioner. Leave the olive oil and conditioner mixture on your strands for 10 to 15 minutes, and then, use a heating cap to allow all that moisture to penetrate your hair shaft. Just like the rest of your body, your hair needs to stay hydrated; doing so is sure to help your hair stay beautiful and potentially grow longer and stronger.

Tyhearra, 15: “I will learn how to maintain my perm.”
To keep that silky, straight ‘do looking fierce, remember that the most important thing is to maintain regular touch-ups. The permed hair and your new growth will not be able to survive on the same head. Don’t believe the myth that your perms should follow a schedule, though, as hair growth isn’t predictable, so always examine your hair before scheduling the next relaxer. When you start seeing long, stringy hairs in your comb and on your pillowcase, you hair is shedding, and that’s a good sign that it’s time to head to the salon for that touch-up.
