Mistakes You Didn’t Know Are Damaging Your Hair
You probably don’t realize that you’re inadvertently doing things to your hair that cause damage, stress, and thinning. The following are the top mistakes you may be making that leads to damaged locks.
Too Frequent Washing
Even oil hair only needs to be washed twice a week. Washing too often strips natural oils and leads to dull, lifeless looking locks. When oil is removed at the root level, the scalp goes into overtime trying to compensate for the loss.
Hair should be washed and products rinsed out in warm water. Follow up with a cool rinse to close hair pores.
Don’t rough up hair when drying. Pat dry if using an ordinary towel. The best option is a microfiber towel or wrap to remove excess moisture.
Combing When Wet
It’s never a good idea to comb wet hair, but if you absolutely must, use a wide-toothed comb. Begin at the ends and work your way to the roots.
Be mindful when selecting a hairbrush. Use a boar-bristle brush for optimal results. Forget what you’ve heard about 100 strokes. It just causes damage.
No Heat Shield
Always use a heat shield product when using hot styling tools. Turn the heat down.
No Sun Protection
The sun’s rays are especially damaging. They’re even present in abundance on cloudy days. It damages and dehydrates locks. Use products with sun protection and wear a hat or stylish scarf if you’re going to be outdoors. Your hair may have “natural” highlighting, but it can also be a symptom of sun damage.
The Wrong Pillowcase
Cotton pillow cases absorb essential oils from hair as you sleep. The fibers are also rough. Use a silk pillowcase that’s soft, smooth, and won’t dehydrate your hair.
Wearing the hair in tight, slicked back styles and ponytails stresses hair. It leads to breakage and contributes to thinning hair.
