What are the common winter hair mistakes?
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.
