We have all heard about how hair is the crowning glory on a person’s head. Along with being dainty but also having a mind of its own, our hair is undoubtedly unpredictable. Sometimes it differs according to the climate, the place, the water, the humidity, the air-conditioning, you name it. Taking care of your hair calls for a lot of love, but once you get the hang of it, there’s no going back. We have taken time to list out some of the most atrocious things you can do to take care of your hair. Read and remember never to do them.
- You are using too many heat styling products.
We all love the feeling we get as we leave the salon—the bounce in our step, mostly thanks to the magic in your hairdresser’s fingers. But we know that the amount of heat they use to style it is terrible. No, we aren’t asking you to swear off from your flat iron and curling wands forever. But use them sparingly is all.
- Washing it all the time
The feeling of a great head wash day is undeniably impressive. But you have to do it with a little grace. If you wash your hair too often, your hair won’t be able to take it. The moisture is stripped, leaving it damaged and fragile. Always remember to wash your hair only twice or thrice a week. Invest in a trustworthy brand of dry shampoo when your hair feels too greasy for comfort. We have recommended our choice of dry shampoo right here.
- You are not washing it often enough.
This situation is pretty much a no brainer. You know about the amount of grub and dirt that our thin hair attracts daily. Make sure you allow your hair to feel healthy and wash it thoroughly whenever you do.
- Using artificial treatments all the time
We know colored hair looks good, especially when it brings out your eyes and accentuates your smile. But, we also know how doing it regularly, and that too, along with bleach, damages your hair to a point from where there probably is no return. We know it’s fun, but just don’t go crazy with it. Moreover, make sure you stay away from relaxers, permanent straightening, and lunatic perms.
