13 Mistakes You Should Avoid In Hair Care.
Using the wrong shampoo could result in having a very bad hair day! Different shampoos have different features and benefits, so in order to maintain the most vitality and luster, it's important to match what your hair needs to the features and benefits that are right for you.
The easiest way to find the right shampoo is to look for words on the label that match your hair type, such as dry, oily, fine, or frizzy.
#12 Washing your hair too often or not often enough.
How often you wash your hair may also depend on your hair type and quality of water you're using. If your scalp is naturally very oily, you can wash your hair once every 1-2 days. If you hair is normal or dry, it only needs to be washed once or twice a week.
#11 You've been shampooing your hair wrong.
The real reason your hair looks and feels so good after a trip to the salon is because the pros understand that the key to happy hair is a well-ecuted shampoo.The quantity of shampoo to be used depends on the length of your hair. There is a method to use a shampoo.
First you have put the shampoo on your palms, and rub them together to whip up the foam and then apply to the roots of your hair and massage it gently. Keep massaging your head throughout the wash, this is beneficial for your hair roots.
#10 Not moisturize and nourish your hair.
The reason for dry hair is that your scalp doesn't produce enough natural oil to moisturize your hair. It's also possible that the condition or structure of your hair is causing the moisture to escape, which leads to dry hair.
You can use special balms and hair masks to address this problem. The correct way to apply balm is to apply it along the whole length of the hair, while avoiding rubbing it into the skin.
#9 Choosing the wrong water temperature to rinse your hair.
If you think that water temperature isn't important, think again because it actually is. If you learn how to use water of different temperatures to your favor then it may really benefit your hair.
If you use cold water for your final rinse then there's a much better chance that your hair will stay shiny, healthy and frizz-free for a longer period of time. Ideally, you should be using warm or tepid water, this will help dilute the oil glands’ secretions, remove dirt, and improve blood circulation.
#8 Using a towel to dry your hair.
Blot your hair with a towel instead of rubbing it to remove moisture. Don't tie the towel around your head with a towel, it can rough up the cuticle i.e. the uter layer of the hair, causing it to look frizzy or fluffy and potentially lead to more breakage.
#7 Brushing wet hair.
Wet hair is more susceptible to damage than dry hair. Wet hair is more elastic and more likely to break. Even brushing dry hair excessively is damaging since brushes and combs can snap or break hair.
After washing your hair carefully separate them with your fingers. Only after that can you begin to comb. Be sure to use a comb with wide teeth. Begin from the ends, and then move towards the roots.
#6 Regular use of hair styling products.
No surprise here, heat causes damage. Hairdryers, styling irons, and other similar appliances not only removes the surface moisture but also removes water that is bound to the hair.
If you using these appliances frequently don't forget to apply a thermal protective spray along the whole length of the hair.
#5 Using the hair dryer incorrectly.
Using a hairdryer incorrectly can cause damage to your hair. Here is the correct way to use it. First you have to blot wet hair with a towel. Then use a flat nozzle attachment of your dryer and begin from roots to ends.
Its okay if you set the temperature to max, but later it needs to be decreased to avoid overdrying. End the procedure by treating your hair to a few blasts of cold air.
#4 Unhealthy diet.
A balanced diet can give your hair all the nutrients it needs. Your hair needs the same well-rounded diet that provides all the recommended vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients needed for good health in the rest of your body.
A strand of hair is composed of mostly protein, which means your hair needs protein to grow. Another important component of the hair-friendly nutrition formula is zinc. It can be obtained by including eggs, seafood, kohlrabi, porridge, avocado, or prunes in your diet.
#3 Not wearing a hat/cap.
A hat can offer good protection from the sun. A woolen hat keeps away the cold. When choosing a hat, make sure that it's comfortable to wear and it should not be tight fitting.
#2 Not washing your combs.
At least once a week, your comb needs to be washed in warm water. Also it should be replaced regularly.
#1 Leaving your hair down while you sleep.
If your hair is long or medium-length, you can tie a loose ponytail so that your hair doesn’t turn frizzy by morning. An added advantage of plaiting your hair overnight is that you have tangle-free hair and lovely, natural curls the next morning.
