Hair Care: what not to do

See also

No matter who you are we all want it; hair. It comes in a variety of different styles and textures, literally. It may be straight, curly, half shaved or in a rainbow mohawk. Creative hairstyle designs seem to be endless. While we love being experimental with our hair a ton of us are not properly caring for it. Hair grows from about half an inch to an inch every month and here are some ways to ensure your hair stays healthy.

One of the biggest no no’s women make is using artificial chemicals to process their hair. Be it coloring, relaxing, or keratin-ing, chemicals cause extreme breakage and damaging of the hair. The best option is to minimize the amount of chemicals used on the hair. Now, once all the chemicals are set in immediately after we tend to run to the heating tools to style our freshly chemically processed hair. This is the worse thing to do, especially if you are not using a heat protector. Too much heat strips your hair of moisture making your strands look thirsty and dry.

When is hair most susceptible to breakage? The answer is when it is wet. Hair is at its most vulnerable state when wet and this is a popular time most women choose to either brush or comb their hair. To eliminate breakage try using a wide tooth comb or finger detangling to separate strands.

Often times described as a women’s crown and glory our hair is fragile and needs tender love and care. If you want your hair to grow strong and healthy you have to take care of it. Minimizing the processing and taking added steps to reduce breakage can make all the difference.
