The 6 worst things you can do to your hair
BY LUSETA BEAUTY
TYING YOUR HAIR TOO TIGHTLY
Have you ever noticed that your hair seems to break in one spot repeatedly? It might be because you are tying your hair too tightly. When you put your hair up in a ponytail or bun, you probably tie your hair in the same spot. To keep your hair secure, you may use hair ties to secure it too tightly.
You can tell that your hair is tied up too tightly if you can’t move the hair tie without discomfort, if it give you a headache from tension, or if you see small pieces of hair sticking to the hair tie when you remove it. To avoid causing breaking and damage to your hair, always use elastics that don’t contain metal. Be careful not to tie them too tightly and rotate the spot where you put your hair tie.
USING TOO MUCH HEAT ON YOUR HAIR
Heat styling tools like curling wands and flat irons can help you create the look you desire. But, if they are used too often, or on too high of a heat setting, they can also cause damage to your hair. To avoid using too much heat on your hair, alternate styles that require the use of heat-styling tools with styles that can be created without heat-styling tools. Also, always use heat-styling tools that allow you to lower the temperature of the tool. Use the lowest possible heat setting for your hair type.
SKIPPING HEAT PROTECTION
OVER-TREATING YOUR HAIR
Hair color and other treatments are a fun way to experiment with your hair and switch up your style. But, if you do chemical treatments too often, you may risk damaging your hair. To avoid this, be sure that you don’t over-treat your hair. Allow the proper time between chemical applications to give your hair time to recover between treatments. If you’re in doubt, consult a professional stylist.
NOT CONDITIONING YOUR HAIR
It’s important to pair your shampoo with the right conditioning treatment. Some conditioners are moisturizing, and others may strengthen the hair, add volume, or add shine. Each conditioning treatment is different, and you should carefully select the right one to meet your hair care needs. No matter what, don’t skip out on the conditioner!
SKIPPING HAIR TRIMS
We all want long hair and skipping hair trims may seem like a good idea to hold onto length. But, you should actually trim your hair regularly to promote healthy hair growth. Although trimming your hair does not make it grow, it helps to keep your ends healthy so that you can retain length. If you want healthy hair, don’t skip out on trims!
By avoiding these six hair care mistakes, you will experience healthier, more vibrant hair.
