Five things that you might be doing wrongly to impair your hair growth

Hello wonderful and lovely kinks of the world! Happy Saturday and happy weekend...
So I am trying really hard to keep the consistency in my posting schedule, so let's get into it...

As a new natural or even if you have been in the game for a minute, there are always some things we don't do correctly or even are ignorant of. This journey is always a learning curve and process so here are some of the things you may be doing wrongly that affects your hair growth.

  • HEAT: Things like BLOW DRYERS, FLAT IRONS, CURLING WANDS etc these are all things that can affect the growth of your hair if over done so be careful not to over do it.

If you are going to dry your hair, do sir drying and if you want some curls in your hair use a rod set.

  • NOT SLEEPING IN A SATIN SCARF OR BONNET: I never used to believe in this theory, I just didn't get the fact that a satin scarf or bonnet can do anything for me,  but multiple studies have shown that using this reduces breakage and makes hair growth better.

  • BRUSHING HAIR WHEN WET: When your hair is wet, it is more tangled and using a brush causes serious frizz and cause tension to your roots and ends. This causes stunted hair growth and is generally bad for your hair.

  • ALWAYS CHANGING AND USING DIFFERENT HAIR PRODUCTS: I have talked about how consistency is Key 🔑 in your hair journey in previous post and this consistency includes ticking to a particular brand of product for your wash day. ALWAYS changing products and regimen is not healthy for your hair, I understand that you may be trying to figure out what works best for your hair but it doesn't take a long time to figure it out... 

  • YOUR HAND IS ALWAYS IN YOUR HAIR: I know I know I have the same problem too 😢 (pot of beans life) but for your hair to grow and flourish, you have to keep your hands out of your hair and leave it alone! 

Hope this post have been helpful to you,  leave me a comment in the comment section down 👇 below if you have any more tips.

Hey kinks what's up y'all?.... Greetings! I hope everyone is having a fab day?

Okay so to the post what is a split end?  The end of a hair strand is damaged resulting in the strand separating into two or more fragments.

Hair breakage is more of a problem for naturals than split ends because split ends is as a result of many activities that a TRUE natural try to avoid..

Most naturals really suffer from hair breakage and I used to be a part of the team (even do my hair still breaks it has reduced a lot)

Here are five tips to help you manage hair breakage..

TRIM YOUR HAIR AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE:I came in contact with someone who told me that she has a phobia for cutting her hair and she was worried she was weird, but the psychologist in  me didn't see her as crazy though, this is a real problem that a lot of women have. With that being said,  trimming your hair doesn't mean you are cutting it off, it means you cutting of the damaged ends to allow new growth to be possible.


Hey kinks what's up y'all? Happy weekend darlings..

So based on the numerous questions on hair growth, here are three reasons why your hair isn't growing.

YOU COMB IT ALL THE TIME: I have stressed this IN  my hair journey that I don't comb my hair all the time. In fact one of my new year's hair resolution is to comb my hair less this year..  So I take finger detangling serious and I am patient with it. Combing of natural hair (which is already hard in the first place)causes SERIOUS tension to your hair follicles and breaks your hair more than it would if you just finger detangle!.  

YOU DO NOT MAINTAIN A HAIR ROUTINE: like I have said in previous post you have to be consistent but not just consistent, you must have a hair routine or regimen.. Your hair has to be accustomed to a specific method.. It's not everything that is flying in the market that you should do (Charley trust me I learnt the had way).. There are a lot of DIY's out there but you have to be c…
