Natural hair is trending and for a good reason.
We're allowed to embrace the natural kink, coils and curls of our crown.
It's very versatile, beautiful and should be worn for the world to see.
However, there are certain things that you cannot do with natural hair.
In this blog post, we will discuss seven things you cannot do with natural hair.
1 - You cannot use just any product
When you want to properly take care of your natural hair, you have to be very specific about the products you use. You cannot be using products from different lines as they may not all work well together. In addition, some products are not formulated with the right ingredients needed for your hair to flourish. It is best to use products from the same line. They are formulated to work well together so to keep your hair as healthy as possible. Our Tailored Beauty Products is perfect for your natural hair. They are made with organic ingredients that will not strip your hair of it's natural moisture and will prevent damage.
2 - You cannot use heat excessively
While heat styling tools like flat irons and curling wands add to the versality of your natural hair, the excessive use of these tools can damage your hair. Too much heat will damage the protective layer of each and every hair strand. So your curls will become limp and not curl like it used to. Also, the hair becomes weaker so it's easier prone to breakage, knots, tangles and even hair loss! We're not against the use of it however, It's best to limit heat styling and opt for protective styles that don't require heat.
3 - You cannot neglect your natural hair's regimen needs
At some point, You cannot ignore your hair's regimen as it needs it to thrive. If you don't your hair will not look , feel or be in a healthy state to thrive. Natural hair requires a lot of attention and care in a healthy hair regimen. This includes cleansing, and conditioning your hair on weekly (or biweekly basis). As well as applying treatments to your hair such as hair masks or deep conditioner on a weekly basis. And more importantly ensuring that your hair is moisturized at all times.

4 - You cannot avoid protective styling
A lot of us think protective styles are knotless braids, locs and wigs. However, this can also include low buns, cornrows, mini twists and min braids. So there is a protective style to suit any natural's budget, time and their overall lifestyle. You have to do protective styles on your natural hair. These should be apart of your regimen as these styles do as the name suggests. Your hair will be protected as it requires little to no manipulation. This will reduce breakage, knots, tangles, split ends and single strand knots. Therefore, you're able to retain as much of your length as possible during this time.
Also, protective styles will just give you a break from styling your hair. You will have an extended period of time of not having to worry about your hair. You don't have to worry about wash day, or styling it in the morning.
5 - You cannot use any type of comb or brush
Using the wrong comb or brush can cause damage to your natural hair. It's best to use wide-tooth combs and/or a denman brush. These tools are designed with firm bristles that are evenly spaced apart. So they are able to remove the tangles without tearing your hair out. Also, the bristles are designed to enhance the natural ringlets of your kinky, coily, curly hair.
In conclusion, natural hair requires specific care and attention to keep it healthy and beautiful. By avoiding excessive heat styling, washing your hair too often, using the wrong products, neglecting your hair's needs, using the wrong combs and brushes, skipping protective styling, and skipping trims, you can help to maintain healthy natural hair. Remember, healthy hair is beautiful hair.
