Whether it’s bleach, color, heat styling, we put our hair through a lot. So when we face a new hair problem like split ends or breakage, we’re quick to blame the common culprits. While switching your shampoo or laying off the straightener for a while might help, the answer might not be that straightforward. Find out how you’re damaging your hair without even realizing it.
Brushing Your Hair When It’s Wet
Soaking wet hair is weaker than dry hair, making it more susceptible to damage. Using a brush on wet hair is more likely to leave you with a head full of breakage. Instead, try using a wide tooth comb and work from the ends up.
We’ve all heard the myth that brushing your hair 100 times a day will make it shiny and fuller. However, this just isn’t the case. Over brushing your hair can actually cause significant weakening and damage. Instead, try only brushing your hair to eliminate knots and tangles.
While there isn’t a set number of times you should wash your hair per week, your hair will let you know if you’re washing it too often. If it’s dry and frizzy, and your head is full of dandruff, it might be time to cut back on the shampoo.
Towel Drying Your Hair
Using a towel on wet, fragile hair is a quick way to cause damage root to tip. Instead, try using a cotton T-shirt or or soft cloth to gently press the water out.
Sleeping With A Hair Tie
Just like wearing your hair in a tight ponytail or braid everyday can cause damage, so can tying it up every night. If you can’t be convinced to leave it down, try switching out your elastic band for a soft scrunchie or ribbon.
