Hair—relaxed or natural—is no resilient matter. It splits. It snaps. It easily falls out. But wait! Don’t reach for the scissors just yet. Are you failing to give your hair the moisture it needs? Are you wrapping it up every night?
It’s time to let go of these hair routines…forever.

1. Not trimming your ends
Retaining length is very important to a lot of us but do we really need to be so scared of a pair of scissors? Split ends cause breakage and weaken the hair. A little snipping goes a long way in gaining the length you want. Do it regularly.
2. Not Moisturizing Correctly
When it comes to relaxed hair, moisture is essential. But not any kind of moisture! Instead of using products that suffocate strands (namely those containing petroleum and mineral oil), have your go at natural oils like jojoba, coconut or extra virgin olive. They’re substantial enough to nourish hair while providing elasticity, but light enough not to weigh it down.
Great Natural Oil To Try: DME Virgin Coconut Oil. It’s certified organic, comes in a resealable jar and will keep for several years at room temperature.
3. Overusing Heat
