‘Anonymous’ wants to know in regards to the Dominican Hair Salon if it is too much heat used and if it will break off the hair….
Personally I only get my hair washed every 3-4 weeks. Many my find this shocking but it is just how I was raised. I only get a relaxer put in 2-3 times a year. I don’t mind if my kitchen gets a little curly in between washings or relaxers.
I also take daily vitamins and drink 10 glasses of water a day.
Look I’m not a Hair Scientist but from my observation throughout the years, women who relax, color and apply heat on a regular basis tend to break off their hair.
When my hair is fresh from washing and I have it in a bone strait style I wear a wrap to bed tied with a scarf.
Somewhere around 2 1/2 weeks- I get lazy and my hair gets more body (depending on humidity) and no longer looks bone strait. I don’t run off and get it done again.
I may curl it myself into a flip using a oil sheen or a dab of olive oil. From that point I will pin each ringlet up at night with a separate bobby pin and sleep with a silk scarf or bonnet.
Afterwards the style is changed to a fuller look with a flip at the ends.
I would show you a picture if you guys would tip your Virtual House Mom (me) every once in a while… I’d be able to get a new digital camera!
Anyway, I don’t let people run their dirty fingers in my hair or otherwise play with my hair. I don’t play with it either. As a matter of fact- I barely comb it or touch it.
I do it once a day or before I go to work- otherwise it is tied up.
When I do touch my hair, it is mostly to stimulate my scalp.
In my opinion diet and how often you are getting your hair done has a lot to do with whether or not heat will break off your hair.
