BIRACIAL HAIR IS BEAUTIFUL

Biracial hair is beautiful and comes with its own set of needs. Whether your hair is thick, thin, wavy or kinky, these five expert tips will help you take care of your hair and find the style that’s right for you. Here, Kimberly Kimble, celebrity stylist and owner of Kimble Hair Studio in West Hollywood, California, shares her tips for biracial hair care.

Know your hair  

 “As far as biracial hair is concerned, like any other kind of hair, there are many different variations — wavy, curly, kinky,” Kimble explains. “You need to first determine the texture of your hair, and once you do, you can treat and style accordingly.”

Use the right products

Once you’ve determined your hair type, it’s important to select the right products. “If your texture is curly, it’s very important to keep it moisturized,” says Kimble.

“Use a moisturizing, sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. If your hair is frizzy, you should be using a de-frizzing product when you blow dry. Use a lightweight product when blow drying your hair to extend the life of your blow dry. If your hair is wavy and thin, use thickening products, and be sure that they are alcohol free.”

Be careful if you color

“Highlights last longer and are less maintenance

than any other type of color, so they are a good choice of color treatment for this type of hair,” says Kimble.”Color treatments can dry out the hair, so use hydrating treatments and products after a color treatment.”

Don’t over shampoo

“It’s best to wash very curly hair only every four days to once a week,” says Teri LaFlesh, author of Curly Like Me: How to Grow Your Hair Healthy, Long and Strong

LaFlesh — whose mother is black and father is white — wrote her book after struggling with her hair for 30 years before discovering how to take care of it naturally.

Concentrate on gently washing the scalp only. Do not pile hair on top of the head and rub it in. Shampoo the scalp, and when rinsing, let the soapy water run over it and down the hair.” In her book, LaFlesh also explains how shampooing isn’t always necessary, and sometimes all that’s needed is conditioner. “The conditioner will do what the shampoo would have done, which is to grab dirt and hold onto it while it is rinsed away with the dirt. It just does it much better.”

 “The best kind of conditioner for rinsing out your hair is a light, all-purpose one,” says LaFlesh. “It isn’t that important what kind you choose here, since you will be rinsing it out again. Try not to get one that says volumizing, or one for oily hair.” Kimble adds, “Sleeping on a silk pillowcase and/or wearing a silk bonnet

to bed helps prevent dry hair.”
