Nevermind the eternal fate of your soul. What impact do your actions have on your precious natural hair?
Many of you reading this are disobedient. You are heathens! You are fornicating to the left and right, and very possibly to the front and the back. Nevermind the eternal fate of your soul. What impact do your actions have on your precious natural hair?
If you’re “conducting business” in the manner that Erykah has taught us - you're sweating. Most of our kinks (pun intended) don’t take well to sweat as it promotes shrinkage ←the ENEMY. You need me to save you and I'm here! So I conducted an experiment. The focus of this study was to determine the simplest and most effective ways to preserve your natural hair and edges, during and after sexy time. I did this experiment on my own. I considered snapping before and after pictures but then scratched that idea because it seemed like overkill. (And maybe a little perverted).....Read on for more.
We're all well aware of the benefits of silk hair ties, scarves, pillow cases, and even sheets. In the event that you are pressed for time, or just plain forgetful, here are a few ways to ensure that you don’t rub your edges out trying to make an impression this evening. Enjoy!
Wrap a silk scarf around only the edges of your protective style/natural hair.
Reduce or avoid excessive pulling. Seriously folks, your hair will fall out if this foolishness becomes a regular occurrence. Give 'em an inch, they take a mile!
Keep braids, twists, locs and other single install styles loose (or in a very loose pony that'll fall anyway) rather than in a ponytail to avoid excessive tension and therefore breakage.
