Time and time again we find ourselves thinking about how our hair routine is not working. Wash day becomes a chore because no matter what you do, things just are not working out the way you want them to. Hair feels dry, hairstyles not coming out the way you’d like them to, hair is not growing…Everything’s falling apart! Here are some reasons why your hair routine is not working for you:
You know what they say about inconsistency. The key to success is consistency. To be successful in achieving your hair goals, you must be consistent. I insist on the “MUST” part! You must moisturize, deep condition and trim consistently. You must absolutely detangle consistently to avoid breakage. You must consistently do the best for your hair so that your hair can do the best for you You cannot apply oil to natural hair once in 3months and expect results. Consistency is key, girl.
Do you have kinky, coily hair but you’re using products meant for straight hair? Do you have wavy textured hair but you’re using heavy oils and creams? Stop it. Today. But the question is, how do you determine the right hair products for you? Do this-Go on to the website: youtube.com and search for hair types similar to yours. See what they’re using and get the same or similar products. You could also browse Black Hair Hub to discover the world of articles we’ve written about different hair types! 😉 You’re welcome.
You may love spaghetti but if you eat it every day for a month you’ll get tired of it. Unless you’re like me…I adore spaghetti. That’s besides the point. The point is that if you keep doing the exact same thing to your hair, using the exact same products on your hair for a year without varying even once, your hair will boycott. For instance, you need to know when to use moisturizing treatment versus a protein treatment. You should try different oils and gels to see what you’re missing out on. You also should try out a few different moisturizers so that you can know if your current moisturizer is working for you. It’s called a hair routine, but be flexible with your methods.
Don’t get stuck in a rut. We’re here to help!
