Are You Preventing Your Hair From Growing ?

Listed below are the most common practices that prevent women from growing longer, healthier hair!

Extensions and weaves are a lot like ponytails and braids. Over time, they can leave hair broken and brittle. The difference is the damage is at the roots where it is harder to cut out. If you have a discomfort or ache in the scalp, that indicates that what you’ve done to your hair is causing too much pressure at the roots. Traction alopecia is a serious hair loss condition caused by wearing tight hairstyles like extensions for too long a time period. So either keep it loose, or try growing your hair instead of going for instant length.

Braiding or putting your hair in a ponytail when it’s wet can cause damage sooner because wet hair is more fragile. Ponytails and braids can cause hair to break, especially if your style is pulled tightly, if you wear it that way every day, permanent hair damage can occur.

Perming refers to either a chemical straightening or a chemical curling works by breaking the inner bonds of the hair and re-forming them back together in a different way. Like bleaching, it weakens your hair, leaving it dull and damaged over time so that instead of luxurious curly locks or shiny straight tresses, your hair looks brittle and dry if you arent careful!

Bleaching your hair penetrates the cuticle with chemicals and removes your natural pigment you are changing the structure of your hair, making it more susceptible to damage. Once you bleach, you’ve altered the strength of your hair, making it weaker. If you add blow drying and styling on top of bleaching, you can really damage your ‘do, causing hair breakage, a dull look, and split ends. Highlights and semi-permanent dyes aren’t as damaging as bleach, but they aren’t without consequences they can also change the inner structure of the hair, causing a lackluster look and dryness, especially if you frequently color to hide roots or gray hair.
