Regrow your nape and avoid annoying breakage with these simple tips and tricks.
No matter how healthy our hair is, there's always one problem area that refuses to cooperate. For some of us it's the nape. While the rest of our hair flourishes, our nape hair refuses to grow and also has the audacity to break. Many of us have simply accepted it and told ourselves the lie that our ‘kitchens’ aren’t meant to grow. However, there are curlies who are living proof that we do not have to tolerate a damaged nape and that it is possible to regrow the hair. If you want to regrow your damaged nape, but have no idea where to start, then read on for our top tips.
Don't brush or comb
I have seen the healthiest and longest napes on women who use no styling tools at all. This is probably due to the fact that the tools we use to smooth out our hairlines and detangle can create unnecessary stress on nape hair that is usually finer and weaker than the rest of our hair.
For detangling, use natures gentlest and best detangler — your hands. Also, when trying to lay down your edges for styles like ponytails and buns, use your hands to apply gel to your hairline and smooth it out. Then grab your satin or silk scarf and use it to wrap your hair. The gentleness of your hands will prevent breakage, while the hair tie will help your hair to dry nice and smooth.MORE: 10 Hair Breakage Treatment Tips
