As the golden hues of summer fade and the excitement of a new school year begins, it's essential to ensure our crowning glory is ready to shine. Afro hair, with its unique texture and beauty, requires special care, especially during the transition from summer to fall. So, as we bid adieu to beach days and welcome the hustle and bustle of school, here are the 10 commandments of afro hair care, hair growth, and self-care to keep in mind:



1. Thou Shall Deep Condition Regularly:

Summer can be harsh on afro hair. Replenish and hydrate your locks with a deep conditioning treatment at least once a week. We recommend Mimi et Mina's Deep Conditioning Mask.

2. Thou Shall Protect Thy Hair at Night:

Always wear a silk or satin scarf or bonnet to bed. This reduces friction and helps maintain moisture, promoting healthy hair growth.

3. Thou Shall Embrace Natural Oils:

Natural oils like jojoba, coconut, and argan are blessings for afro hair care. They nourish the scalp, promote hair growth, and add a natural shine. Check out Mimi et Mina's Natural Oil Collection.

4. Thou Shall Not Overheat:

Limit the use of heat styling tools. If you must, always use a heat protectant.

5. Thou Shall Trim Regularly:

Trimming your ends every 6-8 weeks prevents split ends and breakage, ensuring your natural hair remains healthy and vibrant.

6. Thou Shall Prioritize Self-Care:

Remember, healthy hair starts from within. Take time for yourself, be it a spa day, meditation, or simply reading a book! Your hair reflects your overall well-being.

7. Thou Shall Stay Hydrated:

Drink plenty of water. Hydration is key for hair growth and maintaining the health of your scalp.

8. Thou Shall Avoid Tight Hairstyles:

While braids and ponytails are stylish, ensure they're not too tight. Excessive tension can lead to breakage and damage.

9. Thou Shall Educate Thyself:

Understand your hair type and its specific needs. Not all afro hair is the same. The better you know your hair, the better you can care for it.

10. Thou Shall Spread the Love:

Share your hair care secrets, favorite products, and self-care routines with friends and family. After all, sharing is caring!
