To have shiny and healthy hair , it is necessary to take good care of it. To do this, you must start by using the products that correspond to your hair type. But there are also some mistakes not to make.
The 5 mistakes to avoid that damage your hair
- washing your hair too often
Ideally, you should only wash your hair once or twice a week. For what ? The scalp produces natural oils that take care of the lengths and when we wash our hair, we remove these oils.
- Use heated appliances often
Devices such as straighteners or curling irons are harmful to the hair because they remove their moisture and make them dry. Hair cuticles are also damaged making the hair dull and fragile.
- Color/bleach your hair
Coloring and bleaching damage the hair because during these, the hair cuticles are opened to allow the product to penetrate. Over time, the cuticles may close less well and thus make the hair fragile, brittle and dull.
- Tying up your hair too often
Tying your hair in a ponytail or a bun ruins it. The tighter the elastic, the more fragile the hair becomes. Therefore prefer a clip to attach them.
- Not cutting your hair regularly
It is recommended to cut your ends every two to three months to keep your hair in perfect health. The longer you wait to cut it, the more split ends your hair will have.
