Do you feel like giving up on your quest for shiny and healthy looking hair? If it feels like you’re on the losing end and luscious locks seem like a very far away dream then it may be very possible that you have damaged crowning glory. Now where’s the glory in that?
Most of the time hair damage is our own doing. If you are lost and confused as to why and how your crowning glory got all messed up, you may want to take a closer look at your daily hair habits and hair care routine. Most of the time they are to blame for your hair mess. You may be surprised that your frequent hair brushing and the way you towel dry your hair is making your lovely mane to become rough, brittle and prone to breakage.
So how can you be damaging your hair? That is the question..
You are Damaging Your Hair If…
- You keep on exposing your hair to chemicals. Many chemicals used in various hair treatments damage the structure of the hair. If you have been bleaching or colouring your hair or getting perms, you are doing damage to the very structure of the hair which means getting rid of the protein bonds that keep your locks healthy and strong.
- Heat is the main star in your styling habits. Flat and curling irons, hot rollers and of course the hair dryer can damage your hair. Too much heat will crack the protective cuticles of the hair therefore robbing it of its moisture. Try to not style your hair with heat every single day. It is best to air dry your hair. If you would be using your hair dryer, keep the nozzle at least six inches away from your hair. Also when using the flat iron, it is best to let the iron stay in one place at a time and not let it slide down. It is also advisable to apply leave-in conditioner to your tresses before using any heat styling appliances on them.
- You use the wrong type of comb. You probably are aware that combs come in various shapes and sizes. The very reason why you are seeing such difference in combs is because of different hair types. Combs or hair brushes with finer bristles are best for fine locks, brushes with natural boar-bristles are for dine to medium hair while brushes having individually-spaced bristles with its tips coated are best for thick or curly hair. Don’t make the mistake of brushing your hair while it’s wet as wet hair is more fragile. It is best to use a wide-toothed comb for wet hair. Your mother may have taught you that brushing your hair 100 times at night will make your hair shiny but she left out the part that this can lead to split ends and hair breakage because of too much friction.
