We all want to care for our hair as best as possible. We buy all the right products, stick to a healthy regimen, and pay attention to our hair’s needs. But sometimes, we get accustomed to practices that harm our hair instead of nurturing it. If we do these things consistently, they turn into habits which can lead to major damage to our curls in the long run. Here are five bad hair habits to break!
2. Frustrated Detangling — We all know to be gentle with our natural hair, but some days, being gentle with ANYTHING is the furthest from our mind. When you realize that you’re having a hard day or have just stepped away from a frustrating situation, take a moment to do something that will ease your stress. Read your favorite quote, call your grandmother, watch a little bit of TV, or call your best friend. If you’re in a rush, take at least 30 seconds to take a few deep breaths. Your hair will thank you later.
4. Caring more about length than health — If you’re one of those people that absolutely loves long hair, it’s normal to feel like the most important goal for your hair is length. If you think about it, healthy hair grows. For your hair to achieve length, your hair must achieve a great amount of health. Therefore, if you dedicate yourself to healthy hair, long hair will come without you even monitoring it.
5. Comparing your hair to others — We all have a hair crush. One thing you must remember when drooling over your hair crush is to admire their hair, not compare it to yours. Comparing your hair to others can make you discouraged about your hair and you may start to neglect it or over-manipulate it trying to achieve a particular look. Next thing you know, you’re not deep conditioning as often or have started slacking on daily moisturizing. Therefore, the number one rule of a hair crush is to NOT COMPARE!
