You may be aware that some activities are undeniably harmful for our hair, such as bleaching, but many individuals have developed unhealthy hair habits without even realizing the harm they are creating. So, how many of these hair crimes do you commit?
You're not adequately shampooing your hair.
It's all too easy to get into bad habits when it comes to washing your hair - after all, it's something you do on a daily basis – yet you might be harming your hair. You may appreciate a boiling hot shower, but your hair does not, since it drains your hair of vital oils and causes it to dry out. A gentler approach is to rinse your hair with lukewarm water. Skipping conditioner adds to brittle hair, so use it on the mid-lengths and ends of your hair every time you wash it.
You're being too rough on your wet hair.
When getting out of the shower, many individuals go for a towel to clean their hair, but this actually increases breakage. Instead, gently pat or squeeze your hair dry, or better yet, use a microfibre towel or even a t-shirt to absorb extra water without damaging it. Brushing damp hair is also a definite way to damage it, since it is at its most vulnerable while wet, so if you must remove tangles, use a wide-toothed comb.
You have your hair tied excessively tightly.
A tight ponytail may seem trendy, but if worn every day, you run the risk of getting traction alopecia. It is caused by yanking the hair in the same spot repeatedly, leading in hair loss. Small lumps on the scalp, as well as redness and soreness, may emerge in the early stages, but may be reversed by wearing looser hairstyles or taking a break from hair extensions if used regularly.
You're using too many style tools.
Take a step back from the straighteners! We're all aware that heated tools inflict harm, but how many of us choose to overlook this fact? You don't have to give them up completely, but taking a break a few times a week will benefit your hair — simply let your hair air dry when feasible. If you absolutely must use styling tools, be sure you apply a heat-protecting spray.
You are not shielding it from the elements.
We apply sunscreen in the summer and moisturizer in the winter, but many people overlook the importance of caring for their hair. When the sun shines, wear a hat to protect your scalp and apply sun protection made for hair to prevent it from becoming dry and brittle. Deep conditioning your hair can help it recuperate from the winter winds as the temperature grows cooler.
It's said that it takes 21 days to break a habit, so why not try to revamp your hair care routine?
