7 Things Everyone With Curly Hair Knows They Should Absolutely NEVER Do

You've researched and researched and you think you have a solid list of what you should do with your hair. But, has anyone told you what you should avoid? It is just as important as what you should do. Here is a comprehensive list of everything to avoid.

Don't sleep with unprotected hair.

@ninaa_charlot

Sleeping can ruin curls! Protect them with a satin bonnet, scarf, or pillowcase! This will save your hair from damage and you won't have to do handle your hair as much in the morning.

Don't wash your hair everyday.

@metime.ir

Curly hair needs natural oils to be its best. Washing too frequently strips the hair of moisture and results in some serious frizz. Personally, I wash my hair once or twice a week.

Don't dry your hair with a towel.

@poseyskincare

The rough fibers from a regular towel can cause hair breakage! Dry your hair using a microfiber towel or just an old cotton T-shirt for the best results.

Don't use harsh chemicals.

@kurleebelle

Your hair needs moisture to look amazing. Using harsh chemicals can take away moisture. For example, sulfates are in a lot of shampoos.

This is a harsh detergent that strips your hair. Avoiding it may help your hair. Check the ingredients in your products!

Don't overuse products.

@curlsby.m

An important step is finding what stylers work for your hair. However, overusing products can weigh down your hair! Try to find a balance between curl definition and volume.

Don't brush your hair when it's dry.

@beautysaleslp

This one may seem a bit obvious, but I have seen it be done. Your hair should only be detangled while wet or damp. You can use a brush, a wide tooth comb, or simply, your fingers.

Don't get discouraged.

Finding out exactly what works for your hair is a long process. Give yourself time to try new things. Good luck!

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.

10 Revolutionary Women To Remember This Fourth Of July

Independence Day is almost upon us, which means that for most Americans, it'll be time to bust out the lawn chairs and grills, gather around family and friends, and praise our history through patriotic garb and grand fireworks displays. It's the one day of the year where everyone forgets their political biases or historic inaccuracies, at least for a while, to look back on the hazy, illustrious history of the United States.

But, while we celebrate what people like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and Patrick Henry did for this country, they are not the only ones who embodied the very virtues that our nation loves to advocate for. This Fourth of July, here are ten American women who history tends to forget, despite the groundbreaking things they did for their country.
