Mistake #1: Damaging it.
“A blowfryer (blow dryer) is one way you can damage your hair because you are using a tool that is not meant for curly hair. You’re stretching out your hair, burning it with heat and you’re forcing your hair to do what it doesn’t want to do,” said Amiel.
“Another way that damages curly hair is how you detangle the hair. The best way to detangle curly hair is in the shower with conditioner and don’t use any combs or brushes. A comb or brush will rip through your hair. Your fingers are a little more forgiving, they are flexible.”
