Hair Tip #2 Its Common for Black Girls to apply Heat When Blending Their Hair With Extensions


Using heat on black hair can cause severe heat damage which leads to broken damaged hair. The reason why is because black hair that is usually kinky and or curly has to endure more heat than our straighter haired friends so with more heat, dry hair and breakage can occur. Constantly blending leave out with a straightener or constantly braiding your hair repetitively can lead to thinning and breakage. This can cause a lot of women to have short hair. Using natural oils as a form of heat protection will prevent heat damage if coupled with using heat at a safe temperature that is best for your hair as well.

This depends very much on the nature of your hair. Thin or fin hair cannot handle as much manipulation (heat and styling) as those who have course hair or thick hair. It's common for black women to have fine thick hair whether they have natural hair or relaxed hair and being that thin hair is not as strong as course hair, this EASILY leads to breakage and stagnant length depending on your hair care routine and hair products used to maintain and care for your hair.
