❓I don’t have a curl pattern! 😩😩
✅It’s not that you don’t have a curl pattern. Here are a few things that can negatively effect your pattern
- heat damage
- water damage
- over manipulation
- open cuticle
- split ends
- lacking balance
❓What are the best products to use for my curl pattern?
✅Not Applicable! Lol! Curl pattern doesn’t determine the type of products you use. Density and texture can indicate the amount of product used
❓What’s my hair type?
✅Here’s a secret, it doesn’t really matter. Most people have a combination of patterns. Definition comes when the hair is properly balanced, the cuticles are sealed and hair is trimmed/cut
❓What’s my hair texture?
✅Hair texture is fine/medium/coarse
❓I’ve heard of heat damage, but I’ve never heard the term “water damage” is there such thing?
✅YES! Hair can be “over moisturized” just like it can have to much protein. The technical term is, hygral fatigue. This is when the hair has to much moisture and starts to break down.
❓Okay, so, when am I supposed to use protein?
✅ You need to get your balance in the same doses, so it’s continual. When I say this, I mean, you’re shampoo and conditioner should be providing this every single time. When you start adding protien separately it can be to much for the hair.
❓You mean I’m not supposed to use protein separately because it dries out the hair?
✅Yes, protein, when used improperly can create dry, brittle hair and can cause breakage and then you end up on a teeter totter of moisture and protein. Maintaining the balance each time you shampoo is what’s important.
❓All deep conditioners are effective, right?
✅ The short answer is no. Many over the counter deep conditioners are higher on the ph scale, and do not penetrate the hair strand or close the cuticle properly. This is why it is important to use quality professional products for intense conditioning. You want something that will restore and seal.
