Hair can be fun, but it can also be a struggle if we don’t treat it right. Did you know that there is a very rare condition called “uncombable hair syndrome” that most often develops during childhood? Children with light curly hair usually have it.
His hair does not grow but in different directions. This condition does not require treatment and improves with time. But there are many other conditions that can be avoided and even avoided.
We don’t want you to suffer from these problems or lose your hair (they say that each person loses 50 to 100 hairs a day). Then we have prepared a list of what not to do for you.
Ways We’re Ruining Our Hair
6. Choosing the Wrong Angle
Let’s talk posture, ladies. If you’ve already washed your hair while standing in the shower like the girls in TV commercials, stop doing it as soon as possible. Yes, it is a comfortable position, we will not discuss it.
But the facts speak for themselves: tilting your head is the best way to wash your hair properly.
First, it is much easier to apply the shampoo only to the scalp (remember to always point to the roots and not the ends). Second, it helps to wash your hair better, because the hair moves away from the head and falls in free fall.
Also, if you want to use a hair conditioner or mask, keeping your head low will prevent you from placing the product too close to the roots. And we don’t want greasy roots, right ladies?
5. Drying Hard
Women tend to make the same mistake here as when washing their hair. Very hot air will help you dry it faster, but it will also have long-term consequences for your hair.
Remember to always apply a good amount of heat protection product to your hair before drying it or using a flat iron. Next, set the dryer to medium heat and full power. Fold in the same position as the wash and direct the airflow parallel to the hair.
Move the dryer in short strokes from side to side. Do not use a large massage brush at this stage. When finished, put the dryer on cool air to close the cuticles and give the hair a smooth and smooth finish.
If you only use a towel to dry your hair, we recommend two things: use a silk towel or never twist your hair with a cotton towel. Wet hair is particularly prone to damage and cracking.
4. Not Drinking Enough Water
“Without water, there is no life“. We cover the washing aspect, but that’s not all we need to learn about water when it comes to hair. Everyone knows that drinking water is crucial for good health. Raise your hand if you haven’t started your Monday by pouring yourself a large glass of water at least once. Few people know that hair also needs water to grow. Water makes up 15% of your total hair mass, so make sure you drink enough, right?
3. Going All Natural
Haircare at home is all the rage now. It becomes more and more popular with the increase and popularity of the use of products on our hair. But it is one thing to use what your hairdresser recommends and quite another to prepare your own secret potion.
Women especially like to include oils in their hair care routine. But beware, natural oils (coconut, argan, jojoba, etc.) do not go very well with styling devices. The average burning temperature of the oil is 160-250 ° C (320-482 ° F), and the average temperature we set for our hair straighteners is 170-230 ° C (338-446 ° F) and the average temperature we set for our hair straighteners is 170-230 ° C (338-446 ° F).
Imagine what the result could be … Scorching hair! Using a curling iron a few days after applying oil to your hair is also not a good idea. The oily membrane can remain on the hair for up to 2 weeks.
2. Leaving It Be
In short (pun intended), getting your hair cut is something you should do on a regular basis, unless you’re one of the lucky ones without split ends. You may think that not cutting it will help you grow your hair. Rapunzel would be jealous. Unfortunately, this is not going to happen.
Each of us has a kind of “genetic ceiling” that does not allow us to grow hair to the length of our dreams. This means that caring for these lifeless split ends and treating them with serums to maintain their length doesn’t make any sense.
It is better to take good care of what nature and your parents gave you. It’s so easy to try on wigs and extensions these days that you shouldn’t hold on to what you don’t have.
1. Forgetting to Brush
Brush, brush, baby. Having a cup of coffee early in the morning sounds wonderful, but we also recommend brushing your hair while the coffee is boiling on the stove. We often forget about this simple procedure that can do wonders for the look and feel of our hair.
For a good dry scalp exfoliation, use a brush with natural bristles to massage the scalp before washing to get rid of flakes and start blood flow. Stimulates hair growth by providing nutrients to the follicles. In other cases, brush your hair with a comb and do not touch your scalp.
In that way, we leave the sebaceous glands alone. Start brushing at the ends and slowly work your way up to the roots for 10-15 minutes.
Side note: If you like to wear your hair in a ponytail, don’t make it too high and don’t wear a tight elastic band. After a day with this, you will probably have a headache and some damaged hair as well.
