We list down the culprits in your everyday routine.
Washing your hair too roughly
You might not give too much thought to the way you wash your hair, but you need to be gentler with your locks if you want to keep hair damage at bay. Remember, friction can damage your hair’s cuticle, which in turn, can lead to hair breakage
Double cleansing might be a thing in skin care, but not when it comes to your hair. Unless your mane has reached the point where it’s considered beyond filthy, we strongly advise against shampooing more than once a day, as it’s only going to strip your hair of its natural oils.
Not combing through the knots properly
Patience is a virtue, especially when it comes to dealing with tangles. To prevent damaging your locks, always comb from the knot down. You’ll find that doing so will cause the knot to unravel easily. Make your way up until all the tangles are clear.
Rubbing your hair dry with a towel
Most of you have probably grown up toweling your hair dry, but while it does a good job of getting the excess water out, it’s also making your hair weak. Our tip: Gently pat a super absorbent towel on your hair or dry your locks instead.
Styling your hair while it’s still wet
Your locks are at their weakest when they’re wet, so twisting them into a bun or tying them in a ponytail might cause some of the strands to break. If you really want to fix your hair before you leave the house, make sure that it’s completely dry first. Yes, even if it means setting the alarm an hour earlier.
