Let’s face it, every Naturalista desires soft hair. While some possess soft hair naturally, others have coarse hair that would need some form of treatment to get it softened. We want to let you know that it is possible to have soft, natural hair.

The question is: “How can I make my natural locks softer?”You can soften your natural hair at home with moisturizing products and healthy hair care habits. Your hair will become soft over time.

Let’s look at seven easy ways to soften your natural hair, no matter how difficult it may be.

How to soften natural hair

1. Moisturize your hair regularly

Dryness can occur when the natural oils in our hair start to disappear. Dry hair can lead to brittleness. Moisture is essential for natural hair to maintain its elasticity. You must retain moisture to keep your hair soft and silky. To prevent moisture from escaping, you can apply a moisturizer (water or leave-in conditioner), and seal it in with butter or oil.

You should also moisturize your hair frequently. Let’s say you moisturize your hair at least three times per week. Hydration is essential. Hydration is key.

2. Always do a Prepoo treatment before shampoo

Pre-poo treatment simply involves applying oil to your hair, preferably coconut oil or penetrating oils. This is done before you shampoo. This helps to keep the hair shiny and soft by not stripping the oils completely during shampooing.

3. Oil rinsing is a must

Another way to soften your natural hair is by using this method. This is different than pre-poo because it is performed on freshly washed hair. Oil rinsing can be used to seal in moisture. Your hair will become softer the more moisture you can retain. Oil rinsing has many benefits.

  1. It locks in moisture and increases moisture retention by absorbing the hair shaft.
  2. Improves hair shine
  3. It softens hair and makes it easier for you to detangle.

MethodMassage your scalp with any oil that penetrates the skin, such as coconut oil, olive oil, or avocado oil. Let it sit for at least 3-5 minutes. Do not rinse. Follow with conditioner. Let it sit for 5 minutes, then rinse with water.

Some people like to mix the oil with the conditioner before applying it. This is also a good idea.

4. Caramel treatment

It’s like putting a caramel candy in your hair. LOL! That’s exactly what the caramel treatment is all for. Cassandre Begccai, a beauty expert, created this method. Some ingredients in the treatment are capable of drawing moisture from the air.

Method1/4 cup honey, 1/4 cups coconut oil, 1/4 cup molasses and 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar are all you need. Mix the banana with other ingredients in a bowl. Apply the mixture to your hair. Put a shower cap on your hair and let it sit for at least 30 minutes. Follow with conditioner and wash your hair with a sulfate-free shampoo.

Bonus tipBanana baby foods can be substituted for bananas. It is much easier to wash than regular bananas.

5. Regular deep conditioning of hair

Deep conditioning can make your natural hair soften. Your hair will become soft and silky if you master deep conditioning.

Deep conditioning refers to the treatment of your hair with a moisturizing, protein-based conditioner. This is done with hot water on freshly washed hair.

You can apply the deep conditioner to freshly washed hair. Let it sit for between 30 and an hour. Rinse with warm water.

6. Steaming natural hair is a popular technique

Steaming natural hair involves using moist heat to open the hair follicle and lift the cuticle. This allows conditioners and hair treatments to penetrate every strand.

Steaming your hair is a great way to moisturize dry hair and make it super soft. Hair growth is also promoted by the moist heat, which encourages blood circulation.

7. Use Bentonite Clay mask

Bentonite Clay masks are a miracle clay that softens hair and revives natural hair.

Bentonite clay is a mix of natural minerals that can be beneficial to your hair and encourage hair growth. It softens and moisturizes hair, as well as reduces frizz. It encourages curl definition, shine, and shine.

Combine 1/2 cup bentonite powder with 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar to make a paste. Use generously to your hair and scalp. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes. Cover with a plastic lid. Rinse well.

This Clay should be used at least once per month to make your hair soft.
