HAIR STYLING MISTAKES TO AVOID RIGHT NOW
STOP TYING YOUR HAIR TOO TIGHT
Avoid wearing high buns, ponytails, or hairstyles that pull the hair strand. By this way of styling, there is disturbance to the root of the hair, thereby leading to thinning and damage to the hair follicles. Instead, switch your everyday hairstyle to something even lighter that keeps the hair strands sane and free from breakages.
DON’T BE HARSH WITH YOUR HAIR
The way you comb and treat your hair matters. Every time you try to detangle your hair in a hurry, you lose a lot of hair. Using a wide-toothed comb is better in these times. Also, when you want to detangle your hair, start downward and slowly get to the top. And make sure to part the hair into sections to remove the tangles. While indulging in excessive hair pulling, you lose a lot of hair. So it is ideal to be gentle with your hair.
And detangling the hair when it’s wet can bring adverse effects on the hair. As wet hair is considered weak, posing too much pressure on it will cause breakage in the hair.
CHANGE HAIRSTYLES FROM TIME TO TIME
If you start to lose hair in a particular region of your scalp, check if it is occurring due to your patterned hairstyle over the period. Sometimes, hair loss can happen due to following the same style for a long time. So, loosen up the ponytails, and try braids for a week. To sum up, it is good not to stick to one particular hairstyle.
When you change hairstyles, the hair strands get a better relaxation period to recover from any trauma.
This could result in a condition called Traction alopecia.
AVOID USING HAIR EXTENSIONS
Hair weaving or using hair extensions can cause tension in the hair strands. These styling options require the natural hair to be tied tightly, which may cause damage to the roots. Following a proper care routine for natural hair before setting up an artificial styling is necessary to protect your hair.
BE CAREFUL WITH HAIR STYLING TOOLS
If you rush to work or college after using hot blow dryers on your dripping wet hair, then hair loss could be your best pal. The hair will be at its weakest state when wet, so blowing it up with hot dryers could cause severe damage. For this purpose, cool hairdryers exist and could be a better option to dry wet hair.
BEWARE OF HAIR STYLING PRACTICES
Hair teasing or backcombing, however, you may call it, is a nightmare to your hair. Using these techniques to increase the hair volume may be suitable for some time, but slowly it will surely damage the hair. So instead of sticking to these styling methods, use a hairbrush that will help pump up the volume of your hair.
Apart from these, general tips that might go way long to treat hair better includes using a mild shampoo, protective products before indulging in heat styling, and similar ways. To know more about these habits, check out our extensive blog on hair care.
Also, when you are witnessing a massive amount of hair loss despite adjusting to these simple routines, it is about time to get in touch with a trichologist and know the reason behind it. As hair loss could be an indicator of any other issue in the body, it is best to consult a doctor to avoid suffering from a significant illness.
