Love to accessorise your hair with a scarf or head wrap? This week Lumka shows you how to protect your hair under a ‘doek‘.

Covering your hair with a ‘doek’ can be damaging

Whether your covering your hair overnight or during the day, these haircare tips will protect your hair and keep it looking great underneath your scarf or head wrap:

Use oils

Before covering your hair up at night, use Argan Oil Hair Treatment (R59,95, The Body Shop) as a moisturiser.

Then, instead of using a stocking or ordinary scarf, use a Donna Mesh Wrap (R29,95, Clicks) to protect your hair. This will keep your hair healthy and moisturised overnight.

Moisture and seal

If you have very curly hair (or you’re just having a bad hair day and want to cover up), use Dark & Lovely Oil Moisturiser (R29,95, Dis-Chem) – don’t just cover up dry hair.

Before you go to sleep, place your hair in a high ponytail, leaving the ponytail portion of your hair at the very top so that your curls are not disturbed when sleeping.

Try to do the same during the day.
