Damaged Hair from Chipped Polish

Chipped nail polish can be a nightmare for your hair.  I have been wearing a twist out and wash & go style for a week and needed to detangle.  I noticed that my chipped nail polish was snagging my hair.  At first I thought it was my nails, but then I checked and saw no chipped nails…only chipped nail polish.  I removed the polish and moved forward with detangling using Shea Moisture Purification Masque and then washing with As I Am Coconut Cowash.

Maybe it’s something that you already have as part of your routine, but if not, please remember to file your jagged nails and remove chipped polish before handling your hair.

It’s was very hot in NYC so I was wearing a bright summer color when I took these photos.
