Myth: My Hair's Too Rough To Be Gentle With It
Just because it has a little texture to it does not mean it's the equivalent of burlap and can handle the same amount of abuse.
Hair doesn't have to feel like silk to be treated like it.
In fact, the less it feels like silk, the more it needs that gentleness and extra care to nurture it to longer lengths.
If you tend to style your hair by pulling on it, gripping it tightly and repeatedly scraping through it dry with a comb or brush, then you are being too harsh.
So for 2020, experiment with using less force in the way you touch your hair, and take advantage of products that offer smoothness and slip so your tools can be less harsh on your strands, too.
Myth: I'm Too Busy To Take Care of My Hair
Establishing a simple, consistent routine will bring the time spent doing your hair down to the bare minimum. And, since hair thrives on minimal manipulation, your hair will love you for leaving it (a little bit) alone, as long as you keep it well-protected.
To do this, try time-saving routines like overnight pretreatments and pragmatic protective styling to keep up with the clock, but never neglect your hair. In the long run, it costs a lot more time, not to mention money and energy, to sort things out if you leave your hair unattended for too long.
Myth: I Don't Need To Do My Hair - I Wear Weaves
If your hair is in a state, you are never really hiding it by using hair extensions.
Most methods of extending hair put you at risk of damage if overused, entrenching the cycle of breakage.
Rather than the "grow long hair fast" scheme they are often touted as, extensions can often become an obstacle to growing natural hair long.
After a while, your neglected tresses can become too damaged and weak to even hold the weave up and you're left with limited styling options – outside of a hat or a wig.
The best option is to learn your natural hair – what it needs, how it responds to different methods and products.
Then, you can use weaves or braids – in moderation – as a protective style, or just to give yourself a break from your daily haircare duties.
Myth: Dirty Hair Grows
If you're on a dirty hair programme and don't have robust, lengthy hair to show for it, you already know what category your hair falls into.
Since most scalps need to be fresh and unencumbered to bring forth lustrous, healthy hair, and most hair needs regular hydration and a minimum of buildup to make it to longer lengths, it's amazing this myth ever took hold.
While there is such a thing as overwashing, don't be afraid to give your hair the regular cleansing and moisture it needs to add – and keep – a few extra inches this year.
