AM I MANIPULATING MY HAIR TOO MUCH?

As a natural, it’s tempting to try a new style every other week. There’s so much fun inspo circulating the gram that the possibilities are endless. However, constantly twisting, braiding and pinning our hair into different contrived styles can cause breakage from over-manipulation. All the pulling and tugging can put too much tension on your hairline, and the excessive combing and brushing causes us to shed more hair than is really necessary. Even if you think you daily bun is harmless, hair can break off around your scrunchie if it’s too tight. I have personal experience with that one. Have fun with your curls and kinks but remember that your hair thrives best when it is simply left alone.
