Humans are creatures of habit. Oftentimes, when we develop a routine we tend to stick to it for weeks or even years. When it comes to a hair regime, this is just as true. When we find something that works, we stick to it. Whether out of convenience, cost-effectiveness, or aesthetics, our hair regime rarely changes once set in place.
That being said, there are some everyday hair habits that might be damaging your hair. Are your hair habits ruining your hair? Today, MyCuts will be discussing 4 hair habits that could be doing more harm than good. Let’s get started!
1. Daily Shampooing
Shampooing your hair is refreshing, rejuvenating, and relaxing. There’s nothing better than taking a shower after a long day and cleaning out all of that excess oil and grime that has accumulated throughout your busy day. Unfortunately, you could be making things worse for yourself if you’re shampooing on an everyday basis.
Your hair requires natural oils in order to keep your hair follicles and scalp properly hydrated. When you shampoo every day, these oils are stripped away and this leads to dry and damaged hair over time. Instead, we recommend using a dry shampoo in-between washes to keep your hair looking and feeling its best!
2. Heat Styling Tools
You’ve likely caused a lot of damage to your hair over the years if you use a blow dryer or hair straightener each time you get out of the shower. As the famous saying goes, “all things in moderation.” Using heat styling tools occasionally is fine, but using them on a daily basis can be very harmful to your hair. Instead, you should allow your hair to air dry when possible, and use plenty of heat protection products in the event that you absolutely must use a heat styling tool.
3. The Wrong Kind of Hairbrush
Unfortunately, many of us don’t put much thought into the type of hairbrush we buy. This often leads to using a type of hairbrush for your hair that doesn’t do well for your specific hair type. Those with thinning hair, for example, should use a soft-bristled hairbrush. Those with curly locks should avoid hair-brushing altogether and use a wide-toothed comb instead. Using the right type of hairbrush in your hair regime can make all of the difference!
4. Wearing Tight Ponytails
Let’s face it: ponytails are convenient. This hairstyle is a go-to for many women as it is easy, quick, and stylish. Unfortunately, this well-loved hairstyle can actually damage your hair. If you are wearing especially tight ponytails, this can lead to hair thinning over time. If you’re looking for an easy and stylish hairstyle that won’t be as damaging to the health of your hair, try out a loose braid or maybe a headband to get your hair out of your face instead.
