We aren’t talking about romantic relationships here but about your relationship with your hair by way of its care routine. If you have been trying several regimes for your afro hair and are still not content with the results, then you’re definitely doing something wrong. A small mistake or ignorance when it comes to your hair care routine can make it all go in vain. If your hair still feels the same after every effort you need to check out these reasons on why your hair routine isn’t working for you.
1. Product Build-Up
Using great quality products is good, but what is better? To check the product build up every now and then. Some leave-in conditioners and oils have a tendency to build-up on the scalp. The scalp doesn’t get the required nutrition and messes with the quality of your hair. You can try a cleansing shampoo like Mega Growth Stimulating Shampoo Profectivonce in a month to get rid of the potential product build-up on your scalp.
2. Not Trimming The Ends
Those weak and damaged ends are going to do you no good!. Stop clinging onto them and let them go. Split ends hamper the hair growth and work their way up to your tresses thus damaging them. Trimming them will promote hair growth making your ends look healthy and prosperous.
3. Wrong Styling Habits
Even after using all the safe products there are, your locs aren’t strong enough? Who’s the culprit there? Heat! The finishing with heat and over-manipulation of hair, results in weakening of hair strands.
4. Hard Water
Sometimes, you just can’t escape the water. But c’mon, we wash our hair with it! A lot of girls even use a concoction of oil and water for spraying on their tresses. Our suggestion – check the water quality to ensure it’s not hard. Hard water makes it difficult to rinse your hair thoroughly leaving a product build up after the wash. A dry and itchy scalp is another consequence of using hard water. Be gentle.
