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!

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.

On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.
