Doing your hair when you are tired
Some days the task of washing and styling hair can feel like a mammoth undertaking. But rushing through the process can be detrimental to our hair. This is especially true for the detangling process.
It is important to always protect our hair from damage and be gentle when handling our curls. So detangling our hair when we don't have the time or patience can often result in tugging at knots, leading to breakage.
To avoid this choose a day to detangle when you are least busy, like a Saturday or Sunday. Most importantly if you don’t feel like doing your hair don’t force yourself; throw it in a quick and easy protective style like a bun and leave it for another day when you’re not so tired.
