Heavy manipulation is one of the main causes for breakage. Many ladies get caught up in the style and forget about the health of their hair. Tight braids, weaves, wigs, wreck havoc on our nape region if we aren’t careful. Avoid the unnecessary stress on your hair and give this area a break.
During the cold-weather months it’s important to keep the hair up and off of harsh heavy fabrics i.e. scarves, sweaters, coats etc. that may cause dryness and tangles at the nape. Constant direct manipulation can cause unnecessary breakage, so try to avoid as much friction as possible.
Massaging the nape on a weekly basis will help stimulate blood to the area promoting new growth. Warm a few tablespoons of your favourite oil, dip your fingers into the oil and gently massage in circular motions for 2-5 minutes. Your scalp will thank you for the extra TLC!
