Hot Shower

Who doesn’t love a hot shower after a long, hectic day, but very hot water could be the reason behind your dry and frizzy tresses. Hot water can open the hair cuticle which in turn, affects its moisture. It also increases the risk of split-end and hair fall.

Not Considering The Weather

Just like changing your wardrobe every season, you need to change your shampoos too. Using the same shampoo throughout the year will not only make your hair worse, but it can also make your hair dry and frizzy for a lifetime!

Using Too Much Product

Don’t be overzealous. A coin-sized amount of shampoo and conditioner is enough for your tresses.

Scrubbing Too Hard

Avoid vigorous rubbing while applying shampoo. Dampened hair is more prone to breaking, so scrub your scalp gently using your fingertips.

Conditioner On Roots

Conditioner is meant to moisturize your strands. So, applying it on the scalp will make it oily and your hair will become more prone to hair fall. In addition to that, the conditioner clogs the hair follicle by making it prone to dandruff. To avoid these problems, make sure to use a conditioner from the middle to the ends of your strands.

Towel Drying

Rubbing your hair with a towel can lead to hair fall as well as frizziness thanks to all that friction. The towel absorbs the heat from our hair, leaving them dry and unmanageable. So, it’s better to use an old t-shirt to blot excess water from your strands instead of rubbing them dry!
