1. NOT TRIMMING YOUR HAIR EVERY SIX WEEKS.
The tip of each hair is weaker than the root, making it more vulnerable to breakage and split ends. Having the tips trimmed every 6 weeks helps to maintain the condition of your hair and its style.
2. WASHING HAIR ON DAILY BASIS.
Regularly washing your hair strips it of essential oils and can leave it dry and brittle. If you have naturally oily hair, use a mild, pH-balanced shampoo.
3. RUBBING YOUR HAIR VIGOROUSLY WITH A TOWEL.
The action of rubbing your hair with a towel actually roughens the hair cuticle, which can lead to frizzy and flyaway hair.
4. LEAVING SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER.
Shampoo and conditioner that is not thoroughly rinsed out of the hair is the worst culprit for bad hair days. Try to rinse your hair for an extra couple of minutes after shampooing and conditioning.
5. BLOW-DRYING HAIR.
Overheating your hair makes it susceptible to breakage and strips it of shine. A better idea is to blow-dry hair until its 80% dry and then let it air dry, naturally.
6. NOT USING PRODUCTS RECOMMENDED FOR YOUR HAIR TYPE.
Many people misdiagnose their hair type and subsequently purchase the wrong hair products to style hair.
7. NOT USING A CLARIFYING SHAMPOO ONCE A WEEK.
Everyday pollutants cling to hair and leave a thin coat of grime that dulls and weighs down the hair.
