Growing Longer Hair And Stop Hair Loss, Dry Damaged Hair During The Winter Months

When you make the decision to growing your hair longer you will also be making a decision to being more aware of the products and heat you use to groom it.

There may be simple things we do that cause stress to our hair that we are unaware of, such as:

  • Excess heat
  • Exposure to long term sun
  • Exposure to extreme cold
  • Lack of moisturizing product
  • Lack of conditioning
  • Tight hairstyles

We have to protect our tresses from the brutal cold air and the dry indoor heat. Silk or satin lined hats can give your hair added protection to prevent winter dryness and breakage.

Remember to never go to sleep without wrapping your hair or to never allow your hair to rest on wool fabric that dry and pull out strands of hair.

Find Out How Long Should African American Braids Styles Stay In

Hairtalk: Stylish Braids from African RootsLeaving braids in hair is of great life saver and concern to many, such as people on the run with school, work, and other activities that cause us to seek convenience in hair braiding.

Braided hair will last long if done properly. Great braiding is not enough if hair is not properly prepared. What good is a great style now if your about to lose your hair later?

Because of our many textures and scalp conditions the time varies for many of us. I would suggest that hair braids ideally be left in for only 2 weeks. But the truth is they can stay in for up to six month for hair that grows slow or is not to fine causing stray hair to come through.
