5 Steps To Prevent Breakage

I hope you enjoyed your 4th of July!

We're gearing up for the big Regional Track Meet for the kids this weekend.

While everyone is doing their last minute stuff, I'm writing! 🙂

So it's time for another Q and A!

QUESTION: By doing my daughter's hair the same way, it has begun to take her hair out around the sides. What can I use on her hair to prevent breakage?

ANSWER: I'm glad you've already recognized part of the problem, and you're exactly right. Wearing the same style over and over again will cause breakage and possibly traction alopecia.

Here are a few things you can do to prevent breakage…

1. Use a product specifically formulated for damaged hair. Nioxin will help with growth, Dr Miracles also has some great products for those edges as well.

2. Change up that style. You already knew this but it's very important to change the style every time you do the hair especially if you're braiding, twisting, or cornrowing her hair.

When I get my sew ins I ask my stylist to cornrow my hair different each time to give my hair a break fromt he previous cornrows.

When my hair is braided I get the sizes different every other time I get it braided just to ensure I'm not causing any unnecessary breakage.

3. Use that scarf! Be sure to have your daughter tie her hair up at night with preferably a silk scarf. The cotton on the pillow cases over time have been known to cause breakage.

TIP: If you wrap your hair and tie it up at night change the direction of your wrap after each shampoo to prevent breakage.

4. Moisture is everything. Be sure to keep the hair moisturized at all times. I prefer coconut oil, olive oil is also great. For some hair types it's too oily so you have to find what works for you.

5. Most of all consistency is key with your hair. Be consistent in your regime and your hair will flourish and love you for it!

I can go on and on about this, but if you follow these steps your daughter's hair will start growing again.

I love those questions! Keep them coming and enjoy your weekend.

Be blessed,
