Team BeBeautiful is officially on myth busting spree! And this time we’ve landed on curly hair land. Taking care of you curly mane is difficult enough and then there’s so much information out there in the form of tips, tricks, regimens and more. More often than not one tip always contradicts the other so how can you be sure, right? Well, we’re about to debunk some of the common curly hair myths!
- Myth 1 – Avoid washing hair frequently
- Myth 2 – Accept tangles as part of your life
- Myth 3 – Curly hair has slower growth
- Myth 4 – Conditioner is optional
Myth 1 – Avoid washing hair frequently
It is true that no matter what your hair type, you shouldn’t wash your hair every day. That being said, curly hair needs as much cleansing as any other hair type. Washing your hair every 2-3 days is okay if you’re incorporating enough nourishing products in your hair care routine.
Myth 2 – Accept tangles as part of your life
Yes, curly hair is more susceptible to tangles but that does not mean you have to accept it as a part of your life. Applying oil based serum to the lengths and ends when your hair is wet prevents tangles and adds shine and moisture to the hair.
Myth 3 – Curly hair has slower growth
It may look like curly hair takes forever to grow, however, the truth is it just takes longer to see the difference. The spiral and curves of curly hair make it longer to show visible length. Don’t lose hope, your hair is just growing fine, be a little patient!
Myth 4 – Conditioner is optional
Conditioner is never an option if you have curly hair. In fact you should stock up on conditioner if you want your curly hair to behave. A moisture rich conditioner will add shine, nourishment and prevent frizz. We suggest the Dove Regenerative Repair Conditioner, it restores lost nourishment and makes it strong and smooth.
