Our hair is 90% of our selfie, so let’s make sure our hairstyles are always on fleek! First things first, there are a few hair mistakes you must stay far away from. Once that’s covered proceed to club ‘Good-Hair-Days-Only’! Get ready to pack your favourite styles with you and leave behind these hair mistakes.
1. Don’t Wait On The Weaves
Stunning locks are what we live for and with weaves, we always get ‘em right! And yes, they’re undoubtedly heavy on the pocket, but that doesn’t mean we forget about the damage they can cause when worn for a long time. A weave should not be worn for more than 12 weeks. Let’s be true to ourselves girls, with that weave on your head, you cannot possibly clean your scalp effectively, can you?
2. Too Tight To Handle
Many times, when weaves or braids are attached to the hair they are worn on too tight. This is a big no-no! Apart from tugging at your scalp for the whole duration that they’re on, wearing your extensions too tight leads to inflammation and ultimately an infection on your scalp caused by the accumulation of dirt. So sistas, no dirty talk when it comes to you hair!
3. Too High On Heat
Okay, okay, we are all guilty of making this mistake, aren’t we? While styling your hair, you tend to keep your flat iron on the highest heat setting to straighten out the kinks and curls. The intense heat on your hair leaves them looking brittle and prone to hairfall. ‘Nuff said! Can we just make a pact to leave your locs au naturel and looking fabulous?
4. Ain’t Broke? Don’t Fix It
For all those who have relaxed their hair; this one’s for you! So remember the time the product was first worked into your hair and you got that final result of silky, smooth hair? Now, your hair looked and felt fabulous, but the minute a few of your strands started growing out, (in their natural texture) you went back to your hairstylist to relax your hair again. You know what we are talking about, don’t you? This treatment is extremely heavy on your hair and doing it twice in a short span, can really affect the overall texture of your hair.
