Myth-busting: Three tall tails about your natural hairWednesday, December 03, 2014
Only if you treat your natural hair in the same way that you treat straight hair! So actually, natural hair isn’t harder to handle, just different. You can’t use the same tools and techniques and expect the same results that you would on straightened hair, but once you learn to treat natural hair in a way which doesn’t alter it, it can be managed easily. Pick up the new routines and work with your natural hair!
It looks strong, right? But in reality natural hair is extremely delicate and needs to be treated with care and love. Arm yourself with wide tooth combs, natural ingredients and your own fingers to treat your hair with the respect it deserves.
First off, everybody has a predetermined hair length due to genetics, but black hair has a tendency to shrink up, which leads to the belief that it doesn’t grow long! Actually, with proper care and attention your hair can be as long as it can without the need to use harsh chemicals to relax or perm it. Hair grows an average of 1/2 inch per month, so if your hair isn’t growing it may be more down to lack of proper care more than anything else!
