The foods you put into your body reflects on your hair. If you eat processed foods, sweets and junk foods regularly, odds are you have dull, dry and brittle hair.

Your hair is a reflection of your overall health. If you hair is in bad shape, this is an indication of vitamin or nutrient deficiency. Eat healthy and nutritious foods to keep your hair strong, healthy and shiny. Be mindful of your eating habits.

Intense towel drying

Many of you are probably guilty of this. You grab your towel after getting out of the shower. You vigorously rub your hair with a towel to get rid of excess moisture. Sure, this can help speed up the drying process, but it can really damage your locks. It can also leave you with frizzy hair.

To prevent damage, we recommend drying your hair with an old shirt or a microfiber towel. Squeeze your hair gently to get rid of excess moisture and allow it to dry naturally.

Being a clean freak

People with oily hair tend to wash their hair every single day. They are worried that they may end up with oily hair and scalp in the middle of the day. However, frequent washing can strip your scalp off of its natural oils. Because of this, it compensates for the lack of oil, so your hair ends even more oily.

If you have oily hair and it ends up greasy the next day, consider using dry shampoo. It will soak up the excess oil and will leave your hair looking and smelling fresh.

Tight ponytails

Ponytails are one of the go-to hairstyles of women. It’s one of the easiest ways to deal with bad hair day. It’s easy to do and can get your hair off of your face. While there is nothing wrong with pulling your hair up into a ponytail or a top bun, excessively tight ponytails are a bad idea.

If you tie your hair up too tightly, you’re putting added pressure onto your scalp. Eventually, this may cause traction alopecia. Your hair may fall out as a result.
