Bandwagons are often loathed by many because nobody wants to be known as the one who followed the ‘trend’ without really having a passion for the facts.
But we all do it and this year has its fair share of bandwagon trends that down right changed the way that we thought about our hair. For us some bandwagons were kind of awesome because as our knowledge and knack for breaking boundaries increased we ended up with more options now, more than ever before.
Below we list 6 bandwagon trends that we jumped on this year:
With celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Blac Chyna endorsing the vitamins* with 3-month challenges on Social Media, Hairifinity vitamins* without a doubt was one of the biggest trends, if not the biggest in the year of 2014.
Why? Because not only was Hairifinity a big hit among those of us who are familiar with the healthy hair care world, but it was huge for those of us who are not as well. Everyone likes a quick fix and it appeared as if Hairfinity* did just that.
For many low-porosity, type 4 ladies the MHM or Maximum Hydration Method was a God send! The regimen is based on the use of high-alkaline products such as baking soda and natural gels and conditioners. It helped many women (and men) achieve ultimate moisture and definition for their gorgeous kinks and coils.
Many reported that they had less shrinkage, more weighted curls and coils which is a awesome for fine hair. You are able to have super moist strands without the use of many products after reaching an optimal moisture level.
Although microtrimming has been around for a while, it really blew up this year. For many women who were looking for ways to thicken up their ends without sacrificing a lot of length, this was their Savior.
When microtrimming you would cut off around 1/8- 1/2 inch of hair every 4-8 weeks. Depending on your hair growth per month/year, this method would allow you to keep retaining length while maintaining thick ends.
