To take care of black hair you must keep it wrapped when you sleep. Preferably, using a satin scarf. Black hair should not be washed more than once every week, at the most. Keep the scalp oiled with a moisturizer once a day, at least. You should do a deep condition one time a month. Massaging the scalp is a very good idea to help with circulation. Try to keep heat out of your hair. A lot of work, but it pays off!
