Myth 1- Avoid washing hair regularly

This is true that no matter what your hair type is, you shouldn't wash your hair every other day. That being said, curly hair needs as the same cleansing as any other hair type. It is completely okay to wash your hair after every 2-3 days if you are including enough moisturising products in your hair care regimen.


Myth 2- Curly hair grows slowly

It may look like that curly hair takes ages to grow, but the truth is that it just takes a longer time to see the difference. The frizz and spirals of curly hair take a longer time to show the visible length. Don't lose hope ladies and be a little more patient, your hair is growing just fine!


Myth 3- Applying conditioner is optional

Conditioner is never an optional step even if you have curly hair. In fact, if you are born with curls then you should definitely stock up on conditioners to make your hair behave. A rich nourishing conditioner will add hydration, shine, make it smoother and prevent your hair from getting frizzy.


Myth 4- Accepting unmanageable hair as a part of your life

There is no second thought that curly hair is more prone to tangles & knots but that definitely does not mean that you have to curse your hair or accept it as a part of your life. You can use an oil-based serum on the ends of your hair when your hair is wet to prevent the tangles and add shine and moisture to the lengths of your hair.
