Common Misconceptions and Answers about Kinky Hair

Aug.22,2022
This entry was posted in Construction By Bailee

Every girl has struggled with hair - for most of our lives, many kinky curly-haired girls have been clueless when it comes to dealing with their hair. In this age of the internet, there is so much information out there, true and false, that it's hard to know if that's a good thing or if everything is true. Today we're here to give some girls with kinky curly hair some more detailed explanations! Let you bust some of the misconceptions about the content, as well as guidance on what the correct approach should be.

Myth 1: Kinky curly hair = messy hair for life

Fact: This is not true!

If your hair is healthy and moisturized, you should be able to brush or comb it smoothly to minimize shedding. If your hair is dry and frizzy, then you should definitely use a conditioner. Moisturizing conditioners are designed to help loosen those tangles and knots with ease. Starting at the base of your curls, use a wide-tooth comb and gently brush your hair upwards. You can also try gently tugging at the ends of your hair while applying the conditioner. It's important to remember that your combing is best done in the shower, before you get out and condition your hair with hair products so that you have clean hair that is not contaminated with dirt, sebum and/or products.

Myth 2: Washing your hair regularly will dry out your kinky curly hair

Fact: Regular hair washing is actually beneficial for kinky curly hair

Cleaning your hair helps get rid of product build-up and dirt (such as dirt, oil, gel-based products and others). When the scalp is not completely clean, product residue and dirt can cause brittle or oily hair. When the scalp is clean, sebum production is stabilized, which minimizes the chances of oily, greasy hair.

Myth 3: Kinky curly hair are hard to grow

Myth 3: Kinky curly hair are hard to grow

Fact: Hair does grow, but it is hard to notice because it is too curly.

Yes, kinky curly hair does need attention and for these hair types, keeping your hair well moisturized is the key to seeing significant growth. Since your hair is tightly coiled, it can be difficult to retain the natural healthy oils from your scalp and stop it from flowing freely into your strands. This causes your hair to become dry and brittle, which eventually leads to breakage. So it's not that your hair can't grow because it's so weird, it just needs some moisture and love!

Myth 4: You can use any shampoo

Fact: The simple answer is no!

You should choose a shampoo product that is specific to your hair type, especially if you have wavy or curly hair. The chemicals in some shampoos can remove oils from your hair and cause it to become coarse. This can lead to frizz. Look for products that are sulfate-free, as sulfates will remove the oil from your hair and leave your hair feeling dry.

Myth 5: You can fix split ends by using certain products

Fact: Split ends cannot be repaired by using certain products.

This is a catch. Products that claim to smooth out split ends may only mask the problem, not solve it. If you have damaged hair with minimal split ends, the best thing to do is to go to a barbershop and have the ends trimmed. This will help eliminate dead ends, reduce dryness, and then keep your hair healthy. Finally, make sure your hair is styled correctly, which will also prevent the dreaded split ends from forming in the first place.

Having kinky curly hair doesn't mean you have a problem. Before you let anyone tell you, you need to first feel comfortable with your hair and know how to care for your hair. kinky hair is beautiful in its own unique way, and you need to be proud of your hair Please rethink the stereotypes and misconceptions surrounding kinky hair. We are all unique, and so is your kinky hair.

Myth 6: Regularly brushing kinky hair will straighten it

Myth 6: Regularly brushing kinky hair will straighten it

Fact: Regularly brushing kinky hair can lead to more frizz.

Sure, brushing straight hair can make it flat and shiny, but this won't last long. Extremely kinky curly hair is susceptible to damage and can be damaged by the bristles of the brush. If your curls are tight, avoid brushing your hair too often (especially with a metal brush) as this can weaken the hair follicles. We recommend running your hands through your curls in the shower or immediately after rinsing with conditioner, as your fingers are gentler on tightly curled hair. Also, remember not to blow dry your hair if possible.

What are the hair types that can never turn to curly hair?

Hair doesn't just turn into curly/wavy hair, it's either naturally curly/wavy or it's straight. In some cases, you might think your hair is originally straight because of regular brushing, blow drying, and not enough conditioning, but once you switch to a healthier hair care routine it becomes wavier and its real curliness shows.

Is there a difference in the curly hair routine between long and short hair?

It's definitely easier to take care of shorter hair because you won't need as much product, it will be less prone to frizz, it won't get tangled as much, it will dry faster, etc. but the same steps in taking care of long curly hair applies to short curly hair.

Is hair affected by the weather? How much does the weather change curly hair?

Yes, of course it is! Curly hair is affected by humidity the most! It also tends to become a bit dryer in dry weather so you need to change your hair care routine and products accordingly. During dry weather make sure to condition your hair a little bit more and maybe use a heavier leave in conditioner. As for humidity, you need to use a higher hold gel or use a diffuser so your hair dries faster. Also for some ladies, they might need to cut out any products that contain glycerin
