What are the com­mon win­ter hair mis­takes?

CityPress - - T# -

Women plait and weave their hair for longer than the ad­vis­able six weeks. Plait­ing in­volves a lot of pulling and stress, which weak­ens the hair and hair­line. In ad­di­tion, not wash­ing weaves and plaits regularly, or not al­low­ing hair to dry prop­erly, can cause bac­te­ria to build up and can lead to skin in­fec­tions. Scratch­ing the scalp with pins, combs or pens breaks the skin, mak­ing it vul­ner­a­ble to in­fec­tion.
