7 Mistakes Many Naturals Make | Curly Nikki | Natural Hair Styles and Natural Hair Care
After reading this article, I thought back to all the dumb stuff I put my hair through once I thought I could *because I was natural*.
*I never deep conditioned.
*I used so much shampoo, I'm surprised I didn't scrub my strands away.
*Not only did I bleach my whole head to go blonde, I flat ironed it without any product/heat protectant.
*I passed my flat iron over the same sections multiple times.
*I used my heat tools on the highest settings; I burned off a section of hair with my curling iron once.
*I never slept with a scarf on my curly hair.
*I would go weeks without combing my hair, straight or curly.
*When I did comb it, I would rip my comb or paddle brush through it without any concern for breakage.
*The products I used contained mineral oils, silicones, alcohols, and all kinds of foolishness.
I can't even begin to explain how it is that I still have hair growing from my own scalp. I would have given up a long time ago, but my hair still keeps hanging on lol.
