Do you think washing hair is a simple task? If your answer is yes, you must have made several common mistakes in your hair routine. When it comes to washing hair, matters like how often hair should be washed, and with what, should be taken into consideration.
Nowadays, people pay more and more attention to hair care, therefore, the use of techniques and products that might result in unnecessary hair damage is being eliminated. Generally speaking, it is difficult to skip all the products containing sulfates, phtalates, parabens and those beauty products, because of quite a lot products containing those ingredients more or less. But we can make sure whether our hair is properly conditioned, so as to take care of our locks to the most extent. For example, oils, masks, and DIY recipes are made use to replenish moisture and protect our strands from damage.
Unfortunately, even some of us shampoo and condition their hair well, they still suffer from hair problems, and this is because of the mistakes we make when drying our hair.
And here are 6 common mistakes we tend to make when drying our hair.
- Towel Dry Our Hair
When our hair is wet, it becomes more fragile than usual. If we rub it using a towel, the friction resulting from rubbing always brings breakage. Therefore, we had better to blow and air-dry our hair. Since air-drying is actually not the best for hair either. There’s actually a fine balance between how much air-drying and blow-drying time your hair should receive for optimal health.
- Not Using Heat Protectant
Heat can do harm to our hair. Before using any hot tool, including blow dryers, we should spray our locks with a heat protectant, by which means can we steer away of damages that come with heat styling.
- Beginning With Hair That Is Too Wet
In general, the longer we apply heat to our hair, the more damage will happen to our hair. If our hair is still dripping, we need to wait till it is not so wet.
- Not Parting Our Hair
It may be difficult to dry our hair effectively and tell whether our hair is drying evenly, if we blow dry all of our hair at once. It is suggested that we divide our locks into at least two parts around our heads horizontally instead, so as to make sure that our hair is drying completely and evenly.
- Using A Wrong Brush
When blowing dry our hair, we tend to suffer more damage caused by overheated metal brushes. It is suggested that we use a boar bristle brush, which will be able to grip our hair.
- Not Using Concentrator
By using a concentrator on our hair dryer, we can find that our hair drys faster and with a sleeker finish.
