Hair Crimes: Are You Guilty?

Hair Crimes: Are You Guilty?

We've probably all been caught committing one of these hair crimes.  We're here to remind you not to continue or you will get fined. Your hair don't want to pay the fine.

  • Not communicating to your braider/hair stylist: Have you been in the chair and it feels like your hair is being mismanaged but don't want to offend your hair stylist. Well someone will pay for your silence and it will be you and your hair.  Speak up if you feel a style is too tight or your hair is not being handled with care.  

  • Brushing wet hair aggressively: Wet hair is more vulnerable to damage, and aggressive brushing can cause breakage and stretching. Use a wide-toothed comb or a brush specifically designed for wet hair to gently detangle your hair.

  • Using harsh hair ties or accessories: Avoid using tight elastic bands with metal clasps or rough materials that can snag and break your hair. Instead, opt for hair ties made of fabric or soft materials to minimize damage and breakage.  We love a good satin scrunchie.

  • Excessive chemical treatments: Frequent and harsh chemical treatments like relaxing, perming, and coloring can weaken and damage your hair. Give your hair enough time to recover between treatments and consider using milder alternatives or natural dyes.

  • Overwashing your hair: Washing your hair too frequently can strip away its natural oils, leading to dryness and brittleness. Find a balance that suits your hair type and consider using dry shampoo between washes to keep your hair fresh.

  • Rough towel-drying: Vigorously rubbing your hair with a towel can cause friction and breakage. Instead, gently squeeze or pat your hair with a soft towel or an old t-shirt to remove excess moisture.

  • Neglecting regular trims: Skipping regular trims can lead to the accumulation of split ends, making your hair appear frizzy and damaged. Schedule regular appointments with a hairstylist to keep your ends healthy.

  • Pulling or tugging at knots: Being rough with tangled hair can cause breakage and damage. Take your time and gently detangle knots using your fingers or a wide-toothed comb, starting from the ends and working your way up.

  • Ignoring scalp health: A healthy scalp is essential for healthy hair growth. Avoid excessive scratching, harsh shampoos, and heavy product buildup that can clog your hair follicles. Keep your scalp clean and well-nourished. Natural hair oils such as Donna's Recipe Strength Hair Oil has 18 natural oils and powders such as tea tree oil, argan oil, jojoba oil to stimulate hair follicles for a healthy scalp.

  • Stressing your hair with tight hairstyles: Constantly wearing tight hairstyles like ponytails, buns, or braids can put excessive strain on your hair and lead to breakage or traction alopecia. Give your hair regular breaks and choose looser styles whenever possible.

No promise you won't be in hair jail anytime soon by committing any of these hair crimes.  I know we've all been guilty in the past of at least one of these crimes but we have changed our ways. We're all about this healthy hair journey together!
