It is important to avoid those habits that can actually do more harm than good to your hair.

3 common ways people damage their hair

When you are styling your hair each morning, it is important to avoid those habits that can actually do more harm than good to your hair. Here are a few of the common ways people tend to damage their follicles without realizing it:

  • Brushing wet hair: When you are styling your hair in the morning, make sure that the hair is dried out enough to be brushed or combed. Hair follicles are at their most vulnerable and easily breakable while wet, so a comb or brush could end up causing long-term damage.
  • Relying too much on heat: Of course, many people have a tendency to use blow dryers, hair straighteners and curlers to quickly dry and style their hair. While you can certainly still use them from time to time, it is important that you limit your hair's exposure to them. Too much heat can dry out the follicles and cause them to fall out.
  • Wearing a tight hairstyle: Even if a ponytail seems like an easy way to style your hair on days when you are busy, the force of the hair being pulled back can actually pull the follicles out of your scalp. Try and keep your hair loose while you are out and about, as this will reduce the chance of long-term damage.
