If you want great hair, there are a few things you need to stop doing.
Here’s a list of things you shouldn’t do to your hair:
1. Towel-drying hair
Towels can create a harsh friction against the hair cuticle that scrubs off leave-in conditioners and damages strands.
2. Over-washing hair
Don’t wash your hair everyday. It will strip essential oils from you hair.
3. Exposure to heat
Your hair shouldn’t constantly be subjected to a ton of heat (from the sun or styling tools) — unless you want it to frizz all of the time!
4. Skipping heat protection
Use heat protection to avoid causing damage to your hair.
5. Combing wet hair rigorously
Wet hair will shed more, so avoid combing them again and again.
6. Excessive brushing
Brush your hair less and use your fingers to style your hair more often, instead of your brush.
7. Not conditioning your hair
Conditioning not only protects your hair, adds shine and increases growth, but it also prevents breakage and damage to the internal hair shaft.
8. Applying conditioner on entire head
The ends of your hair should be the focus when putting on this super-hydrating product.
9. Wearing too-tight ponytails
Wearing your ponytail too tight or in the same position daily may cause damage to your hair.
Smoking is one of the worst things you could ever do for your hair. It dries it out, makes it stink and increases breakage.
11. Colouring your hair
Avoid artificial colouring. It damages the hair shaft, even more so than heat does.
12. Tying wet hair
Wet hair will shed more.
13. Not having a proper diet
Foods like salmon, avocado, walnuts, sweet potatoes, eggs, Greek yogurt and blueberries deliver essential nutrition for healthy hair and skin.
14. Applying heat styling tools to wet hair
Hair should always be 100 percent dry before using a heat styling tool.
15. Prolonging a haircut or trim
Skipping trims seems like the obvious choice, but once you start collecting split ends that break and destroy the shape of your hair, you’ll regret it.
