Quite similar to the drinking game, let’s play never will I ever. This is to swear off all the harmful things that you should never do to your afro hair.
This is basically doing too much with your hair, too often. And though, trying on new looks and latest hairstyles every day is our jam, we fail to realize that this over manipulation is damaging our crown. Choosing protective hairstyles that give your hair a rest from all that processing in between, would be a profitable and recommended shift.
Even if you are cleansing as directed by your stylist, make sure you are not using any harsh chemicals on your hair. These will strip off the moisture from your tresses. A mild shampoo will help secure the moisture and not be too hard on your hair.
Holding onto things has done no good to anyone. The same goes with split ends. Trim away those split ends off your strands to make way for longer and stronger hair.
Always be gentle in your approach. Getting your hair done in a matter of seconds by heat application may sound exciting, but can spell disaster in the long run. Team up with some mild alternative methods to curl your hair without using heat.
We’d like our hairstyles sans pain! This especially happens when protective hairstyles go wrong and the twisted hair is pulled too tight at the root. So, ladies let’s take a vow to always be gentle, and not cause our scalps any pain.
Reluctance to adopting a night care regimen is not only a great habit to nurture to manage time and hair better, but is a crime against natural hair care. Tie your hair into Bantu knots or the Pineapple ponytail and choose only smooth fabrics like silk and satin to cover it up and let it set as you sleep.
Never discourage your hair and doubt its quality. Every hair type is unique and different. Judging your hair correctly, understanding its type and texture, using the right products and tools, will gradually land you into the “great hair” zone.
You can still stop or reduce all these processes and start a new routine. Take help from these 5 Ways To Embrace Your Natural Hair to do the same.
