Women always complain of hair breakage, hair thinning, bald spots, partial or full hair loss, etc., without actually knowing the causes of such problems. Today we are looking at some of the most common hair care mistakes women make.
The first mistake is using too much product. When we change anything about our hair, we always panic, buy a ton of extra styling products and put it all on. Our hair ends up looking greasy or weighed down, so we end up washing our hair too frequently which just dries it out. Be extra judicious with products. You can always add a little more as you go.
Many people are fascinated, yet often frustrated, with the manageability challenges of their new growth and want to go back to relaxing. The first six to eight months of growth are not their true natural curl pattern or hair texture. Their scalp and follicles are still healing, so they need to do everything they can to make it through this “scab hair period” and into your true hair texture. Once they’ve made it through this patch, they’ll have softer, more manageable and even curl patterns.
Curly hair is the driest hair type so no matter how you’re wearing it, you need a really great leave-in moisturizer. Most women say they “know” about moisturizing, but stop with rinse-out conditioners, hair oils and treatment masks. You need a leave-in to ensure hair stays super hydrated.
