Every woman loves to have hair that looks healthy and is full of life. However, a major hindrance that prevents them from achieving their goals is following some damaging hair habits. Most women are used to taking care of their mane in a certain way without thinking much about whether they are doing it right or not. As a result, bad hair habits are formed.
To have healthy hair, it is important that we change these habits. The first step towards achieving good hair health is to break through the bad habits and embrace new healthy hair habits that can help you handle your delicate mane.
Generally, the right way of brushing your hair is to move your hairbrush smoothly through your hair from top to bottom. But if you have tangles in your hair, this method may be quite damaging for your hair. Instead of pushing each knot on top of the other while brushing, detangling your hair from the bottom and then brushing it gently the usual way will help prevent hair fall or hair breakage.
Most women dry their wet hair in two ways — using a towel or a hairdryer. Both ways can cause hair damage if not done in the right way. If you are using a towel to dry your wet hair, ensure that you avoid rubbing the towel over your tresses vigorously. Rubbing the towel briskly on your hair can cause unnecessary friction and is not good for hair health. The right way to dry wet hair is to use cotton- t-shirt or a less abrasive cloth on your hair to gently blot the excess water from your hair. Also, always use a hairdryer to dry your hair only after your hair is 50%- 60% dry and not when it is completely wet.
Is combing your hair 100 strokes before bedtime good for your hair health? According to an age-old hair care tip, these hair habits helps massage your hair and scalp and help it stay healthy. However, if you constantly brush your hair vigorously, this hair care habit can do more harm than good to your hair.
Using hot hair tools can be damaging for your hair. Hair looks best when it is at its natural best. However, if you need to use hot hair tools, do not use it more than two to three times a week. Also, always use a heat protectant serum when using these tools to prevent hair damage.
