5 FAQ’s for Nappy Styles:

How do I keep my hair from being so dry looking?

Use a Nappy Styles Quick Soft Leave in Conditioner daily.  If your hair is extra dry and damaged use a quarter size amount of the Nappy Style Beard & Hair Oil and massage into to your hair after using Leave in Conditioner.

How often should I shampoo my hair?

You should shampoo your hair at least 2-3 times per week, using the Nappy Styles 3N1 Sulfate FREE Shampoo.   Too much cleansing can make men’s short hair dry and brittle and breakage-prone.

My hair can become very tangled, dry and difficult to comb.  What is the best method for combing without breakage?

First, before attempting to comb your hair wet it thoroughly.  Once wet apply Nappy Style Quick Soft Leave in Conditioner, massage in and use Nappy Styles Gel to help in detangling and adding shine.

What steps should I take to maintain healthy, strong hair?

Cleanse with NS Sulfate FREE 3N1 Shampoo; Moisturize with NS Quick Soft Leave-In Conditioner, and Seal in moisture with light oils like NS Beard & Hair Oil for preventing dry scalp.

Can I mix products together in the Nappy Styles product line?

Yes, all of our products can be mixed together, so you can find your right mix of products for your unaltered natural hair.

DO’s & DON’Ts

Do More Moisturizing. That means each and every day, guys. Regardless of how often you shampoo hair, apply a natural moisturizer, such as almond or coconut oil, each day. Just rub some on your fingertips then run hands through hair. The benefit? An added moisture boost makes hair look softer and helps you avoid dry scalp and flakes.

Do Less Shampooing. Too much cleansing can make men’s short hair dry and brittle and breakage-prone. Why? Because most shampoos are made with sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), a harsh chemical. SLS can strip hair of its protective natural oils that keep strands supple and strong. Best bet? Only wash hair up to twice a week or check out the local barber shop for a SLS-free shampoo.

Do Some Haircut Research. Really consider everything about the haircut you choose: what kind of upkeep does it require; how well will it work with your lifestyle? If you need advice, talk to your barber about what looks work for your face and your level of commitment to maintenance.

Do Select Products Wisely. Sorry, but not all hair stuff is equal.  Make sure you choose appropriate products for your hair that are moisturizing and oil-rich and have no drying ingredients.
