Hair is something you can grow in all places.You can grow it under your arms,on your head,and even in your private parts.The hair on your head can be long and short,but whatever you do don't flat iron it,it will totally break off!I think that's what you call damaging your hair. You need to take care of your hair properly!I could tell you how to take really good care of your hair. You can use vaitman E for it or doctor micrale cream. At least greace your hair once a week and rooler rap it.You can also get perms every 4 months. Most people go natural and cut off all their hair and let their natural curls grow out! That's all i can tell you about hair.
