Almost women want to look beautiful and your hair is one feature that draws quite a bit of attention. But, you might be amazed to learn that your hair care routine may be more harmful than helpful. Here are some common mistakes that you may get while trying to take care of your hair:
1. Too much heat
The curling iron, the hair dryer, the flat iron: all of these can damage your hair heavily, but why do we use them every day, some people sometimes use more than once a day? All of this heat, especially when you don’t use a product to protect your hair from heat damage. If you must use heat to curl, straighten or dry your hair, use a product that helps you protect your hair from heat damage.
Read the hair dryer reviews to choose the right heat level of your blowing dryer.
2. Too much of a good thing
The thing that you shampoo your hair every day is absolutely unnecessary. To give your hair a fresh look, washing in clear water simply and then blow drying it. You will achieve better results if you rinse your hair with bottled mineral water instead of hard water tends to dry hair out.
3. Do not brush before washing
A damage double-whammy: Your hair is extremely weak when it is wet, and wet hair is easier to become untidy. To prevent shower-induced snarls, give your hair a brush before hopping in. Once you like to comb in the shower, apply conditioner, use your fingers to untangle strands with, and then use a wide-toothed comb before rinsing.
4. Wash your hair too often
Shampooing can strip essential oils leaving your hair vulnerable to damage. If your hair is not very oil, skip a day or two in between washes.
On the days you do not shampoo with water, try to use a dry-shampoo spray and then comb through hair gently. This will remove odor, dirt and oil from your hair and leave hair soft, shiny, and fresh until the next wash.
5. Skipping the conditioner
I often hear women say that they really hate conditioners because their hair doesn’t get tangled. De-tangling the hair is just the initiation of a long list of benefits that come along with conditioning the hair regularly.
Conditioning your hair after each washing usually can keep hair healthy, shiny, and free of split ends. If your hair is too damaged or dry, use a leave-in conditioning spray daily to protect your hair from further damage. To keep hair hydrated and healthy, you can also use a deep conditioner once a week.
6. Wait too long between cuts
Perhaps the most common hair care mistake women make is that they do not get their locks cut regularly. Little by little, the ends of your hair become brittle, dry and more susceptible to split ends. Even though if you’re letting your hair grow out or don’t want to cut, regular trims can work wonders on your hair.
Many stylists recommend that getting a trim every six to eight weeks, depending on how fast your hair grows, to stabilize less breakage and more manageable hair.
