Did you know that dull looking hair is often caused by everyday common mistakes you make while treating your mane? Read on..
Styling tools, experimenting with different shampoos, irregular sleep patterns and an unhealthy diet are major causes for hair fall.
But did you know that simple lifestyle mistakes you do on a daily basis are leading to aggressive hair fall. Below are six simple common hair mistakes you are doing currently that is aggravating your hair fall.
6. Taking A Bath In Hot Water
Having a hot water bath is relaxing for your body but bad for your hair. Hot water dries out your scalp by stripping off its natural oils and leaves the hair brittle.
A cold bath is beneficial as it flattens the follicles and increases their ability to grip the scalp. Thus, a cold shower can help your hair look healthier and shinier.
However, if you are one of the many who cannot bear the cold, you can shower in lukewarm water. That also works.
5. Not Shampooing The Right Way
There are times when you are out of the shower but your hair feels dull, lusterless and uncleansed. This is a result of product buildup or shampoo residue.
Washing your hair the right way reduces hair damage to a large extent. Work up a lavish lather on your scalp by reaching out every part of your scalp with your fingertips.
Rinse off thoroughly to wash away any residue. A clean scalp will help your hair dry faster, giving it a voluminous and healthy appearance.
4. Brushing On Wet Hair
The most common mistakes you do and are not aware of is combing or brushing wet hair. Hair roots are at its weakest when they are moist. Combing or brushing causes weakening of hair follicles that leads to hair fall.
It’s best to let your hair dry normally before you start combing. Using a wide tooth comb from the ends of the hair to the top can avoid split ends.
3. Regularly Cleaning Your Brushes
Clean your brushes regularly. Using a dirty comb on your scalp can cause more damage to your hair. An unclean brush or comb can accumulate dirt and grime on your scalp.
This will make the scalp oily, weaken the hair follicles in turn resulting in hair damage. Make it a habit to clean your brushes and combs and replace them every 2-3 months for good hygiene.
2. Wearing Tight Ponytails
Yes, you read it right! Wearing tight ponytails or tight hair bands can cause hair damage. A tight ponytail or bun pulls back your hair that can cause breakage from the roots, resulting in hair splitting and damage.
Further, it pulls the nerves around the scalp resulting in headaches. A prolonged headache can cause stress, which is one of the major causes for hair fall.
1. Understand Your Hair Type
One of the biggest mistakes you make which you are not even aware off even while reading this article is not knowing your hair type. Every step you take to care for your hair depends on what hair type you have.
For example, if you have an oily scalp but are unaware about it and are using dry hair products, you will end up with more damaged hair.
Hence knowing your hair type is the most important step that will decide your further hair care actions.
