Hair is considered the pillar of beauty. Everybody, be it men or women, loves to have healthy, shiny and strong hair that reflects one's personality. For many, a bad hair day equals a bad day, and it can seriously affect a person's self-esteem. There are many things you do in your daily lives can ruin your lustrous locks. Here are 5 habits that damage your hair without even knowing it-
# Tight hair up-do
Certain hairstyles in which you pull your hair back up too tightly, such as a high bun, tight braids or a high pony tail, can cause a lot of damage to the follicles of the hair, as they are being yanked back with force. These hairstyles, when done on a regular basis, can cause hair loss and thinning of the hair.
Using products with a lot of chemicals can cause more damage than good. Every day use of these products will ruin the quality and texture of your hair. Go for milder hair products that will nourish and beautify that mane. Deep condition your hair with moisturizing hair masks to get back your natural quality.
# Brushing wet hair
Your hair becomes more fragile when it's wet. That's beacuse the water swells the cuticle and stretches it out, making it more more prone to be pulled out from the root.
# Doubling up on hot tools
If you blow out your hair and then flat iron or curl it, you are doing twice as much damage.
# Bad shower habits
You probably already know to avoid using scalding hot water on your hair, and you probably don't shampoo it every day - both excellent ways to avoid major damage.
