List of Mistakes to Avoid

\r\n

CHEMICALLY-RELAXED-DAMAGED

\r\nIgnoring the over- relaxing hair:\r\n\r\n

Processed hair often becomes over relaxed; they tend to become brittle and susceptible to damage. So we should nourish them with conditioners, hair masks and protein serums, which will help in rebuilding the hair’s potency. Consulting your hair stylist or hair dresser for revitalizing the over-relaxed hair is advisable.

Trying out Hair coloring at home\r\nMost of us try out hair coloring at home, which results in coloring hair darker than required. Even we select the shade that doesn’t match our skin tone and that gives us duller look rather than providing a highlighted look. Finally, we end up going to our beautician for correcting it.

Trimming your Tresses by Own\r\nDo-it-yourself hair cutting and trimming is not at all recommendable. Cutting our own bangs can result in irregular hair cutting, and sometimes we cut it too short or too wide, that give us an unwanted and silly look. Professional hair experts opine that hair should not be cut horizontally but vertically. So it is safe to leave the complete process in the hands of the hairdresser.

\r\n

Excessive hair wash

\r\n

Excess Washing Of Hair\r\nRegular washing of hair can be damaging for your hair, so do not shampoo your hair regularly. It makes your scalp dry and devoid of natural essential oils. Hair looks lusterless and dry. Generally new hairdos you want to flaunt set well in not freshly washed hair. If you want to provide your hair a refreshed look within the shampoos, apply dry shampoos that will give your hair a revived look without affecting the hair adversely

Excess Use of Hair-stylers and Tools on Damp Hair\r\nIn times of hurry to get ready faster, women frequently make this mistake. They use flat irons or curlers on wet or damp hair, which is very bad for the health of the hair. The heat scorches the hair follicle and burns the outer hair tissues, making each strand brittle. Before using hair styling tools you must dry your hair naturally and then go for styling.

\r\nTired of managing dry, tangled and frizzy hair? Avoid using hair care products that contain alcohol and detergents.\r\n\r\nBrushing Hair Harshly\r\n

In case of tangled hair we often rush and brush harshly, making the condition worse and causing a lot more hair fall. Instead, we must very carefully see the tangles and brush out smoothly all the knots and kinks. Use of smoothing liquid or conditioner before combing the hair can loosen up the strands and cause minimum hair loss. And always brush first with wide tooth combs to avoid hair breakage and hair fall.

\r\n

Towel drying hair can be rough for hair\r\nWe may have seen in movies where the beautiful female protagonist wraps her hair with a thick towel to dry her shampooed hair. But this doesn’t mean that it is the correct process to dry the hair. A towel gives rise to friction against hair cuticles that removes the off-leaves in conditioners and makes the hair shine and less dry.

\r\n

Proper use of Conditioners\r\nThe ends of the hair must be the focus at the time of using a conditioner, hair serum, or a hydrating product. Applying the conditioner on the complete scalp can result in forming build up on the scalp.

\r\n

Use of Hair Dryers\r\nWhile using hair dryers we often get the burnt smell, don’t we? Yes, correct the outer layer of the hair gets burnt when the hot air passes through our hair. Experts suggest using the dryers from a distance and keeping it moving until the hair gets dried.

\r\n

Avoiding Hair Cut for couple of months\r\nIn the love of having long, shiny hair we often refrain from getting required hair trimming. Or in our busy schedule we don’t get time to get our hair cut and that result in split ends. We must go for a hair cut or trim after every six weeks that keeps the hair volume and split end free.

\r\n

Habit of Tying Ponytail for Long\r\nTying a tight ponytail makes quick hairdo and looks nice too. But gathering and tying hair shafts with a rubber band for a long time creates split ends and breakage. Keeping a pony tail tied in the same position regularly is also a bad practice for our hair.

\r\nOver Brushing of hair causes breakage, and hair damage. Of course, brushing hair improves blood circulation in the scalp but excess of it causes itchy and dry scalp.\r\n\r\n

Food to avoid

Food to avoid

\r\n\r\nWrong Hair Nourishing supplement\r\nNever try out any supplement without consulting the medical practitioner for reducing hair loss. The supplements that can benefit you in case of hair growth are biotin, vitamin C and Iron.\r\n\r\npillows and hair loss\r\n\r\nCarelessly managing hair at night time\r\nLot of us doesn’t care about hair at the night time and keep it just open. Hair gets rubbed against the pillow or bed and that causes dryness.  A silk or satin covered pillow is good for the hair as cotton dries out the hair.\r\n
