Are you confused on why your hair growth is stunted? It is beyond washing and keeping the hair neat to your taste, there are costly mistakes you might be making that could be causing that.
Below are some numbers of mistakes we make while trying to care for your hair:
NOT TRIMMING YOUR HAIR EVERY 6 WEEKS
The tip of your hair is weaker than the root, making it more exposed to breakage. Having the tips trimmed every 6 weeks helps to maintain the condition of your hair and its style.
WASHING HAIR ON A DAILY BASIS
When you wash your hair regularly, it strips off essential oils and can leave it dry and brittle. If you have naturally oily hair, use a mild, pH-balanced shampoo. When washing your hair, avoid rubbing the scalp vigorously as it will stimulate the oil glands to produce more sebum.
RUBBING YOUR HAIR VIGOROUSLY WITH A TOWEL
The act of rubbing your hair with a towel actually roughens the hair cuticle, which can lead to your hair falling off.
LEAVING SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER IN YOUR HAIR
When shampoo and conditioner are not thoroughly rinsed out of the hair that is the beginning of bad days for your hair. You must make sure you rinse your hair for an extra couple of minutes after shampooing and conditioning.
BLOW-DRYING HAIR UNTIL COMPLETELY DRY
Overheating your hair makes it susceptible to hair breakage, and leaves it looking dull. A better idea is to blow-dry hair until it’s 80% dry and then let it air dry, naturally. Also, hold the hair dryer at least 30 centimetres away from your hair.
NOT USING PRODUCTS RECOMMENDED FOR YOUR HAIR TYPE
Many people misdiagnose their hair type and subsequently purchase the wrong hair products to style hair. Always go for products that suit your skin type.
NOT USING A CLARIFYING SHAMPOO ONCE A WEEK.
Everyday pollutants cling to hair and leave it dulls and weighs down the hair. Using a clarifying shampoo once a week will give hair a residue free fresh start.
