Last night vlogger/blogger Janelle Stewart tackled that very question and I thought it was sort of interesting because there are many of us who like to wear a fro daily.
The general rule of life is anything that is done too much will eventually suffer a little bit, does this mean you cant wear your fro? Absolutely not! It just simply means you have to take preventative measures to maintain and protect your hair.
We have added Janelle’s video to the bottom of this post where she gives her own tips on how to manage wearing a fro daily and we have a few to add and reiterate as well.
1. A moisturized fro is the only way to go
If your fro looks great but is always dry, your strands will break for sure. To maintain that style weekly you must deep condition weekly using both moisturizing products and protein based products
2. Avoid the sun
If you are in the sun daily then a daily fro is not the best idea. Sun damage is no joke, your hair will dry out and you could possibly get heat damage.
3. Do not pick out your hair every day
We are with Janelle on this one, constantly picking your hair especially if it is already picked out, is not ideal for fragile strands. Lift the roots on the first day but be very careful there after.
A fro will be very prone to tangles because our strands are naturally attracted to each other and will want to wrap around each other
If you notice that you are losing a ton of hair when you detangle then you might want to reconsider your styling practice.
Our ultimate suggestion would be to mix it up, you can technically wear a fro daily but to preserve your strands it doesn’t hurt to protect your strands every now and again.
