Myth-busting: Three tall tails about your natural hair

There’s a lot of misinformation out there about what you can and can’t do with your natural hair, some of which might put you off transitioning to natural hair! But what is the truth? We’ve picked three of the most widely believed myths to calm your nerves,

Natural hair is hard to manage

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!

Natural hair is strong

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.

Natural hair doesn’t grow

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!
