It is okay to wash your own hair once or twice a week. Get a girlfriend to trim your ends. Apply a deep conditioner and sit under the bonnet dryer you. However, visiting your stylist when you need a specific style or can’t master the look you want or for chemical services is a good idea.
Not sure if you should DIY? Ask yourself these questions:
If I do this can I guarantee that my hair won’t fall out?
If I do this can I guarantee it will look better than before?
Will this help or hinder my goal to having healthy hair?
Remember, practice makes perfect. But if you answered no to any of the questions above, feel free to proceed to your nearest hair salon.
