A Block Head, black hair with its sensual, very curly texture. This makes it unique among other types of hair, and it takes a lot more effort to keep its strands in the right condition. In this article, we will introduce you through African hair dummies and provide maintenance tips and other valuable information to help you get along better with your dolls.
How does African hair differ from other textures?
African hair has always been a bit tricky compared to other hair textures. Abnormal, dull and prone to becoming curled and tangled. If you see it in a dummy, never question it as a head. No, it's not damaged or worn out, and it doesn't need to be replaced. It's all because of the special skin texture that makes it look and feel that way.
African hair has a rough and open epidermis, which allows it to adhere to other strands and form tangles. Nor should you expect black hair to shine in its natural state. Although the skin of Caucasian hair is flat and closed, reflecting light well, the rough surface of the black cuticle is less professional and therefore dull.
But rest assured, because if you use the right hair products properly, you can bring shine to a black fake Block Head. We say it makes sense because putting a lot of oil on your hair to make it look more shiny is one of the worst ideas anyone can adopt when it comes to African hair. You should always keep it in proper range so as not to push the hair down and cause it to break under its own weight.
Basic maintenance skills combing.
If you've never used black Block Head before, you might be wondering if you can comb through quirky textures. Of course, if we think of grooming as a way to straighten hair, we can't do it on the curls of mannequins, because it will only destroy their special texture. If we think of grooming as a way to entangle and remove frizz from our Block Head, it may have a place in daily maintenance. However, you must be extra careful and gentle to prevent damage to your Block Head.
Combing African hair can be difficult and tricky because of the lack of elasticity and moisture, the rough surface of the skin increases friction and causes the roots to undergo a great deal of tension. The hairline of a mannequin may not be as firmly fixed to the scalp as hair on a human scalp. This makes the grooming task much more challenging and requires an extremely gentle approach. To minimize damage, you must choose a wide-toothed comb. It is recommended that you work in sections and use a regulator to reduce friction and tension on the harness.
Washing and conditioning
When it comes to shampooing, you don't have to be as generous as your white wig friends. You don't want to wash African hair too often, as it can cause dryness and dullness. If you practice your hairdressing techniques every day, it's best to wash once or twice a week. Don't rub it as it will aggravate the curls and mess up the hair. Dry parts should occur naturally. Try to avoid blow-drying as it can dry out hair and damage its curls.
When it comes to conditioning, that's the most beautiful gift a fashion model with black hair can get. Regular use of conditioner helps keep hair smooth, preventing tangles and wetting for a more routine look. Conditioner also has the effect of eliminating dullness and adding luster to the hair of abnormal mannequin.
The bottom line
Caring for a dark-haired fashion model isn't rocket science, but it's not easy. You have to spend a lot of time keeping abnormal hair in good condition and preservation, as its rough texture increases the likelihood of frizz, drying, cracking, and darkening. You must be gentle with your hair in all aspects to avoid damaging the style and causing more damage.
