TikToker, Monique M Rapier, shared the mistakes you’re making in a video that has gone viral with over 300k views.
Although these techniques may be destroying your hair, she said many people didn’t know about them.
So which ones are you making?
She first says that brushing your hair too frequently can cause it to break.
As does brushing your hair wet without any sort of detangling spray or leave-in conditioner applied beforehand.
Monique also said people make the common mistake of not applying hair oil as they think it will make their hair greasy.
She says using it will ‘transform your hair.’
One of the worst mistakes people make is sleeping with their hair down and not having a protective hairstyle, she claims.
She said it was super important to put your hair in a protective style when sleeping to reduce breakage.
In the comments, she recommended using a silk bonnet or tying your hair in a fluffy sock.
Monique claimed there was no point in using conditioner if you don’t leave it on for the recommended two minutes.
This is so that your hair can absorb the moisturising qualities.
Moniques said: “Learn from my mistakes PLEASE, which ones do you still do?”
Viewers of the video were grateful for Monique’s advice on what not to do.
One wrote: “Omg I’m glad I came across your contents. I am so guilty I always do almost all of them like 3/4.”
“I had no idea we need protective hairstyles omg!” Exclaimed another user.
A third commented: “Your hair care tips have transformed my hair in less than a week… THANK YOU for making it so straightforward!!!”
