Myth #8: Natural Hair Can Handle Chemical Color Better Without Breakage
Chemical color puts just about the same amount of stress on hair as a chemical relaxer. Permanent color breaks into the cuticle layers of the hair strand and dissolves proteins in hair fibers. Chemical treatments of any kind always leave textured hair weaker than it was before processing. It’s okay to color your natural curls, but be prepared to go the extra mile to maintain your hair’s health and prevent damage.
