Do you know that wearing the wrong scarf can rob your hair of its natural moisture and cause it to become dry and brittle or hair can get caught in the material causing it to fall out? When wrapping your hair steer away from cotton scarves and/or lying directly on cotton pillowcases. Opt for a silk scarf or silk pillowcase. Quick solution; visit a fabric store (Walmart has a section in most of it stores) purchase about a yard or of low cost silk material. Have it cut into several scarves and a big square piece to place on top of your pillow while sleeping.
Losing hair? Did you know that Traction Alopecia is one of the most common forms on hair loss in African American women? It is gradual hair loss caused by pulling and applying excessive tension and force to the hair. E.g. ponytails (especially worn in the same spot daily), too tight braids, weaves, etc. If you notice hair loss, immediate actions should be taken so that you will not cause permanent damage to the hair follicles. Give your hair a break, loosen up the braids and don't place your ponytail in the same spot every day. Be careful along the hairline, especially when wearing micro braids. If you wear a wig daily, alternate placing the comb in your hair to secure wig in place using bobby pins and stocking cap as the alternative method, pay close attention to breakage in the area of where the combs secure the wig. *Recommended product to use: Elentee Soy Organics Anti Breakage Moisturizer, Vitale Olive Oil Hair Mayonnaise, Vitale Olive Oil Breeze Shampoo, & Vitale Olive Oil 4-In-1 Growth Serum
