Friday, September 22, 2017

We all have that one girlfriend who has salon-worthy hair that look like she bounced straight out of a haircare commercial. And we also know that she might have spent hours and hours on taking care of her tresses. Much as we admire her, we may not have the luxury of time and effort to do so much for our hair.

We have rounded up 5 bad hair habits that you should banish for happier, healthier and more manageable locks.

1. Sleeping On Cotton Pillowcase

If you’re sleeping on regular cotton pillowcase, your hair is likely to suffer from more wear and tear compared to sleeping on a silk pillowcase. If you’ve noticed hair loss, frizziness and dryness, you should considering switching to a satin or silk pillowcase as it allows your hair to glide easily when you toss and turn around.

2. Tying Up Hair Too Tight

Tight buns and ponytail hairstyles that tug every single strand of hair around your hairline can lead to receding hair line. If you need to, do up a loose bun or ponytail instead. But it will be best if you leave your hair as it is.

3. Drying Hair With A Towel

As mentioned on the above, your hair is the most vulnerable when its wet. Drying your hair with a bath towel can result in split ends and frizz due to the friction created. Instead, pat dry with a cotton tee or wrap it up!

4. Going To Bed With Wet Hair

Wet hair is like a loosened spring, it stretch and break more easily. Therefore, your hair is more prone to breakage if you’re sleeping with wet hair. Regardless how tired you are, always dry your hair before turning in.

5. Sleeping in a Dry Room

Sleeping in a dry room isn’t only bad for your skin, it also leaves your hair dry and crispy. Place a humidifier in your room so your thirsty strands can gently be replenished while you’re asleep.

All these simple efforts will be worthwhile in the long run!
