Let’s face it, when your hair journey has been as long and eventful as mine, mistakes happen. I had a huge setback when my hair was relaxed, which lead me back to natural hair. However, my natural hair journey has not been without its pitfalls.
Take A Look
I have enjoyed my natural hair each step of the way. There was a time I styled my hair in as many ways as possible while neglecting its care. Check out the video for more on my natural hair mistakes:
My Natural Hair Mistakes
My hair has grown since I chopped again in 2012 . However, I value the health of my hair most, and there have been a few mistakes along the way. One of my mistakes led me to recently cut 3-5 inches off my strands.
- Not following a routine
- Trimming way too much
- Too much manipulation
- Not moisturizing enough
- Skipping the protein
However, I learned from my mistakes and now my hair is thriving. I created this video to share and possibly save you from making the same mistakes. The biggie here is moisture protein balance, don’t skip out on that.
I find that my hair can take more manipulation if I am keeping it moisturized and strong. This means that I follow a regular routine with moisture and protein. I also found the sweet spot concerning trims, and that definitely meant that my length retention improved.
