Mistakes That Prevent Hair Growth

Everyone wants a magnificent mane of hair. but there are a number of mistakes that people make that restricts or prevents hair from achieving its full potential. The following are the most common things people do that can interfere with optimal growth.

Washing Too Often and Hot Water

Contrary to popular belief, hair doesn’t have to be washed every day, even if roots tend to be oily. Daily washing strips away natural oils and the scalp tries to compensate by producing more. Washing a couple of times per week is the goal. Don’t use hot water. It opens pores and leads to frizz and brittle strands. Use warm water and follow up with a cool rinse.

Tight Hair Styles

Ponytails are one of the worse offenders, though consistently wearing tight hair styles will take a toll. Styles that place tension on the hair leads to breakage.

Hot Styling Tools

Using hot styling tools too often dries hair and causes breakage. Turn down the heat and use the tools less often.

Proper Drying

Don’t rub hair dry with a towel. Use a microfiber cloth to gently dry or pat dry if using a towel.

Combing and Brushing

If you must comb, use a wide-toothed comb. Begin at the ends and work your way to the roots. Forget brushing 100 strokes a day. Brushing too often or vigorously damages hair. Use a boar-bristle brush.

No Sun Protection

UV rays affect hair, even on cloudy days., along with air pollution. Wear a hat or jaunty scarf when going out in the sun.

Hair Care Products

Use natural shampoos and conditioners that are designed for your specific type of locks.

Other Factors

Genetics play an enormous role in the ability to grow hair and maintain it. Age is also a major component. Hormone levels decline as men and women age, often leading to thinning that can be severe. Stress is another variable that will affect hair growth. Be sure to keep split ends trimmed.
