Are all the supplements and products you’ve been consuming and applying for hair loss prevention and hair growth not working their magic? If your #hairgoal is to achieve healthy, lustrous locks, perhaps it’s time to give your hair care routine an overhaul! Big changes start with small steps and here are 3 little changes you can make that’ll make a big difference with your hair in the long run.
Stop combing wet hair
Do you know our hair is more susceptible to breakage when combed or brushed while wet? Wet hair is stretched, and pulled taut which makes it easier to break, and a combing action which tugs on the hair will cause any weaker strands to break off almost immediately. Prevent this by towel drying your hair gently till about 50% dry before combing the strands out. Another way would be to use a wide-tooth comb on wet hair.
Stop tying your hair too tightly
People with long hair can surely relate to one of these hairy-fying situations:
- Your hair finds its way into soup/gravy/sauce,
- Your baby pulls your hair and refuses to let go,
- A sudden gust of wind turns you into Sadako (yup, that SADOKO that crawled out of the TV);
- Your hair gets stuck in zippers/buttons.
That’s when we will turn to our trusty scrunchie or hair clip to bun up our hair or tie it up into a ponytail.
But do you know that tying your hair is one of the biggest cause of hair fall? By pulling on your hair so tightly, you are straining the hair from the roots, and can cause unnecessary stress to your hair. This would then result in hair fall from the roots - one of the biggest causes of balding. Try not to tie your hair too tightly even if it means looking a bit messy or dishevelled, because having hair matters more, right?
Stop using too much heat treatment on your hair
Hair styling is one of the most important grooming steps so that we can head out of the house looking (and feeling) like a million bucks. If you’re a frequent user of the hair dryer and hair tongs, chances are, your hair is probably facing the consequences. Did you know that our hair can be very badly damaged by heat? Regardless whether it’s a $50 or a $500 hair dryer, heat can weaken hair proteins, and lead to fragile hair!
But there are steps to prevent your hair from getting too damaged! These include using a heat protectant spray before you use those curling wands and straighteners, and using the hair dryer on a cool setting (which dries your hair just as well compared to the heated setting). These can help to prevent breakage and further damage to your hair, while still allowing you to style your hair as you please!
With all these in mind, it is imperative to be using the right products for your hair in order to maintain a clean and healthy scalp, which plays a very important role to achieving healthy and luscious locks.
