Day to day we have our own hair habits we live by. Whether you are the type of person to wash your hair daily, heat it up with curls, or vigorously rub expensive oils into it, many well-loved habits will actually damage your locks, instead of renewing it. Our obsessions can cause hair breakage, thinning out, or stripping it of all health. Some damage is caused by too hot of showers or even your daily diet but most of the time, it’s bad hair habits that go unnoticed. To rejuvenate your hair, here are a few tips and reminders of what not to do with that luscious mane.
Washing your Hair Daily
There is a myth that washing your hair every day will maintain it’s health, but it is quite the opposite. Washing your hair daily will strip it of its natural oils giving you dry locks and damaging your hair to the point of falling out. This habit is most common in teens but not surprising when hearing adults follow the same rule. The appropriate amount to wash your luscious locks is only three times per week to keep its natural shine and health. The shampoo you use also has an effect, so lean towards more mild washes.
Oiling too Often
Spending money on expensive hair serums is a common usage among adults. Finding the perfect warming oil that works properly with your hair type is like finding a little magic. However, what very few know is that you should not be oiling up every day. Oiling too often attracts dirt and grime, which will lead to greasy hair resulting in more shampooing. A common practice is to oil as often as you wash, about three times a week, without letting it sit in your hair for more than a day.
