MNA Life Style Desk: We are all obsessed with having long, thick, and beautiful hair and however, a lot of what we are doing to our hair to make it look its best is actually making it feel its worst.
Hair will naturally thin out and look dull with age, but there are steps that anyone can take to stop or even reverse this problem. These are the most common mistakes that are made, but the good news is that they are easily fixable to bring your hair new life.
You don’t need 100 brush strokes a day for healthy hair! Quite the opposite, excessive brushing can ruffle the hair cuticle and cause breakage.
You brush wet hair!
Wet hair is much weaker than dry hair, so treat it carefully. One of the worst things you can do is tug a brush through it, forcing tangles apart. Instead, try brushing your hair before hopping in the shower to work out knots and air out the roots.
Too much heat
Many modern styling tools now come with adjustable heat settings, and your own setting will depend on the type of hair that you have.
It is recommended to start at 300 degrees and only gradually increase the heat, if you are not seeing the desired results. And remember, do not ever use hot tools on hair that is wet, and always use a heat protectant product.
Cleansing agents in shampoos, like sulfates, have gained popularity. Though there are no health hazards that come from them, these chemicals do have a tendency to dry out skin, hair, and the scalp while stripping away color.
