What causes damage to wavy hair?
Wavy hair is naturally dryer than straight hair because the oils your scalp produces can’t travel down the hair shaft as easily. Without these oils coating the hair, it’s more prone to everyday damage.
Some of the main players involved in damaging wavy hair include:
- Rough detangling
- Using the wrong products
- Product build-up
- Mineral build-up from hard water
But don’t worry, with a bit of care, it’s easy to protect your damaged wavy hair from almost anything.
