Blow-drying and ironing the Afro hair too frequently
"Constant blow-drying and ironing can damage cuticles, split the strands and dry out the hair."
Solution: "Rather than blow-drying and tonging, try roller setting instead. As this involves less direct heat being applied to the hair, this option is a kinder way of getting hair smooth. And remember, whenever you're heat-styling your hair, always use protection first by applying a product such as the Injibs Egg Protein or Injibs Hair Volume to help guard against damage."
