Minimal styling means setting your curls for at least 5 - 6 days without heat, manipulation and re-application of tons of product. Here are a few reasons it can equate to healthier hair.
YOU MANIPULATE YOUR HAIR LESS: You’re not twisting, scrunching, rolling and stretching your hair every five seconds. Being a lazy styles means that you likely do one style, once a week and leave it be. Your hair (and scalp) get time to breathe and you give your hair a greater chance of retaining length.
YOU USE LESS PRODUCT: You’ve likely found something that works and because you’re not interested in product build-up, which would lead to more frequent washing, you use less.
YOU ENCOURAGE GROWTH: Many naturalists have reported that less frequent washing contributes to growth and more retention. The reason is simple: washing can sometimes deplete the hair of moisture, tamper with your hair’s pH level and cause tugging at the roots during the detangling process. Three week or even once a month washing can help restore your mane.
