hair mistakes to not make

Our hair is vulnerable to a lot of problems. Hair loss, dandruff, premature greying, thinning, split ends, and dryness are just a few of the problems. But it all comes down to the unintentional errors that we make. Dealing with damp hair in inappropriate ways ranks at the top of that list. You must certainly steer clear of making these mistakes wet hair mistakes if you want those lustrous tresses. 

Tying Wet Hair In A Bun Or Ponytail

Don''t tie your wet hair

Tying your wet hair is a grave mistake that you shouldn’t ever be making. It is going to be the biggest hair blunder that you’ll ever make. We understand that keeping your hair open in the summer can be difficult, especially when they are wet.  

The temptation to tie them up in a ponytail or a bun is strong, but your tresses are so vulnerable when they are wet that your hair tie will be full of hair when you remove it. Avoid doing this at all costs; don't even tie your hair when it's halfway dry; instead, wait until it's totally dry before styling it the way you like.

Wrapping Wet Hair In A Towel

Many people prefer to dry their hair by wrapping it in a simple bath towel and sitting for 20 minutes before continuing with their day. While this process is quick and easy compared to others, if done too aggressively, it can cause damage and breakage to the ends of your tresses.

Blow Drying Your Drippin Wet Hair

While many people use curling irons or straighteners on wet hair, they are unaware of the damage they are causing. Applying heat to your hair after it has dried to about 80% is the best way to go. This will help to limit the quantity of breaking during this period.

We use the blow dryer to swiftly dry our hair when we are in a hurry, yet this is where we are inflicting harm to our hair. Wait for the water to drain before turning on your dryer to medium heat and styling your hair as desired.

Combing Wet Hair

Don't comb your hair until it's entirely dry; this causes your hair to dry out and lose its lustre. Always begin at the bottom and work your way up. In your hand, hold the portion of hair you're brushing/combing. Remember to apply a leave-in conditioner as well.

That's the first thing we do after getting dressed; our hair is frail and requires sensitive care. Brush your hair before entering the shower; if your hair becomes tangled after washing, apply a serum or a mild hair oil and brush it with a broad tooth comb. Detangling will be a breeze.

Avoid Using Conditioner Around The Roots

Applying conditioner to your roots is perhaps a larger no-no than you might think. It may appear to be crucial to maintaining your strands' condition, but this is not the case. Too much and too often lathering it on your scalp can result in oily strands and lacklustre hair.

Avoid using conditioner on your scalp at all costs if you want to produce voluminous locks." If the hair is not properly washed, it can also produce accumulation in the hair follicle (with shampoo).
