Natural Hair Care Tips, Do's and Dont's From Celebrity Hairstylist Johnny Wright

Here at Makho's blog we celebrate women of all shapes, color and sizes. For my natural hair beauties (meaning not chemically straightened and often coarse and highly textured)  I have a special treat for you. StyleList sat down with celebrity stylist Johnny Wright, whose most noted client is First Lady Michelle Obama for natural hair care tips, do's and don'ts, and hairstyling inspiration.

If you battle with hair issues such as shrinkage,breakage or loss, dullness and lack of moisture then this article's for you.

StyleList: What are your top five dos and don'ts when it comes to styling and maintaining natural hair?
Johnny Wright: 1. Comb hair thoroughly with conditioners, not just the outside perimeter of the hair. If you do not comb conditioners thoroughly through the hair, you can cause matting and tangling, which results in breakage.

2. Do not use excessive heat-styling. When blow-drying hair, use a Denman brush. Work in sections by dividing hair into manageable 2- to 3-inch segments, starting at the nape of the neck working your way toward the front of the head.

3. When silkening, flatironing or blow-drying, always use a thermal-protecting serum like SoftSheen-Carson Roots of Nature Remedies Thermal Smoothing Serum.

4. When wearing braids
or extensions, avoid tension around the hairline.

5. Use products that have more natural ingredients. The SoftSheen-Carson Roots of Nature Remedies line is perfect for natural hair. They're made with natural ingredients such as mango oil, Brazilian cupuaƧu butter and sweet-almond oil to help promote strong, growing hair.
