5. Using too much heat.
As your hair grows out, it will be tempting to try new styles which may require heat. It’s smart to avoid putting heat on your natural hair as much as possible as heat damage can weaken your hair and alter your texture permanently. Opt for styles like twist outs, braid outs and Bantu knot outs that don’t require it. Curlformers are also a brilliant tool you can use if you desire a head full of curls. You can also adopt protective styles like a top knot (above) that don’t require heat.
