Overwasing your hair
Frequent washing can strip essential oils from your scalp, leaving your hair lacklustre and lifeless. If you have greasy hair, washing your hair every other day will do. If not, then you may still be able to go another day without washing. Use a dry shampoo to freshen up your hair in between washes.
You don’t condition your hair
Conditioners are like moisturizers to your hair. It is important to condition your hair every time you wash it to keep it from drying. Also, don’t forget to deep condition at least once a week.
Using too much hair care product
Some people use a number of products in the hopes of making styling easier. However, using too much products is not a guarantee that you’ll have better looking hair. In fact, it’s the exact opposite. These hair products can weigh your hair down and make it look greasy. Less is more when it comes too hair styling products.
Too much heat
The curling iron, the flat iron, the hair dryer and all other heat styling tools can cause damage to your hair. Your hair becomes brittle and breaks away easily. In spite of this, most women still insist on using them on a regular basis. If you can’t live without blow drying, straightening or curling your hair, use a heat protectant spray.
