Hey Beauties! In my last blog post, we talked about 3 things you shouldn't do as a naturalista, like over conditioning, using the wrong products, etc...here's a few more DON'TS to keep in mind, if you want healthy, growing hair:
4. OVERWASHING YOUR HAIR
Your hair has natural oils that it must maintain to keep it healthy. Washing it more often than it truly needs will only do more harm than good because you'll remove the oils from
5. USING TOO MUCH PRODUCT
Most hair products only require a small amount, from the size of a pea to a quarter, to effectively work. Using too much hair product can mess with your hair’s natural makeup as well as create irritation and/or greasy hair faster than you would like. Therefore, it’s best to stick to the recommended amount.
6. DO NOT BRUSH WITH A DIRTY HAIR BRUSH
Always clean your hair brush because it can collect many germs, bacteria, and dead skin cells that you are not aware of. Remove all the hair before going through your brush with a clean toothbrush, baking soda and tea tree oil solution before letting it air dry.
By keeping these things in mind, throughout your natural hair journey, will help you sustain healthy, hair-growing habits that you and your hair will LOVE!
