Taliah Waajid Says Too Tight Hairstyles And Too Much Product Are Among Her Top Hair Care Mistakes
Taliah Waajid has touted the benefits of going chemical free, or natural back in the early 1990s – long before it became a hair care phenomenon among African-Americans. The veteran stylist, who just released “Taliah Waajid Pure & Natural,” a line of 97 percent natural products, told BOSSIP the biggest black hair care mistakes:
Not Paying Attention To Edges
The hairline and the nape of the neck are the parts of the scalp most susceptible to breakage, and Waajid said relaxers, braids and tight pony tails can stress that area. She said to keep an eye on your hairline, and if you see any hair loss, take a break from that style.
“Any stress or over processing, and the hair there starts to go first,” Waajid said. “As soon as you see a little breakage, switch it up.”
