Before establishing Mo Knows Hair, I’d never thought much about the things I do to care for my hair as a regimen. I just have certain things I do to maintain the health of my hair that I’ve figured out over the years. In this tutorial, I talk about my routine, things I always, rarely and never do. I also reflect on my journey from bleached, relaxed hair to big, healthy natural hair, along with some advice for those struggling with the transition.

Here are some links to topics mentioned in this tutorial that may be helpful to you:

  • To Dye or Not To Dye: Hair Dye Basics – There are four factors that affect how dye reacts to hair; porosity, texture, hair history and natural color. Know the basics of dying before you color your hair.
