In case you didn't know... you should never do this to your hair:
🍂 Detangling dry hair
WHY: Detangling dry hair is a big NO, NO because dry hair is more fragile and easier to break. When hair is wet, it is more flexible and elastic, making it easier to move without breaking. A good conditioner like, Mango Guava Conditioner, applied to wet or damp hair will make your strands more manageable and slippery during the detangling process to minimize damage.
🧴Using too much conditioner
WHY: Us curly haired folk, love a good conditioner... and in this case too much of a good thing can be bad for your hair. Conditioners fall into 3 main categories: rinse out, leave-in or treatments. Each plays a specific role, and using too much can weigh the hair down, cause build up, cause the hair to lose volume, become limp and look sticky.
💪🏼 Not taking your vitamins
WHY: Staying hydrated and taking your vitamins are the key ingredients to healthy hair. Many vitamin deficiencies like B and C, are the main cause behind hair loss. See our post on 5 Best Vitamins & Minerals for Hair Growth. If you tend to forget to take your vitamins, set a reminder in your phone for each day, to get back on track.
🧼 Shampooing too frequently
WHY: Nobody likes a flaky scalp or dirty hair right? But over-shampooing is a thing you need to avoid. Depending on your lifestyle, shampooing once a week is enough. Shampooing too much will leave your hair dry, brittle and moisture starved. The best shampoo for curly textured hair are sulfate-free moisturizing shampoos. Our Almond & Shea Butter Moisturizing Shampoo is the best formula for clean curls that won't be stripped of moisture during cleansing.
♨️ Heat straightening without a heat protectant
WHY: Too much heat can change the structure of hair. Using heat to straighten curly hair without a heat protectant can cause major damage because the hair may not spring-back when washed. If you've straightened your hair and after shampooing the hair does not turn back to its natural state, then you've experienced heat damage.
