5 Bad Habits That Are Destroying Your Hair

You spend all sorts of money on various products and expect your hair to look like something from a Disney movie. But you notice that what faces you in the mirror doesn’t change. You want to scream because your products promised amazing results. The truth is that you could actually have some bad habits that are damaging your hair. We’ve got five of them in this guide. Avoid them if you want luscious locks (which we assume you do since you’re here!).

  1. Over-washing your hair: Washing is good, right? Well, did you know that over-washing can strip your hair of its natural oils? This can lead to dry and brittle strands, as well as an oily scalp. The good news is that the trend of dry shampoo has gone nuts recently so you have your pick of awesome products.
  2. Skipping regular trims: You want to grow your hair so you just sit at home and ignore the appointment reminders. This is the approach, right? Sadly not. The last thing you want is split ends. Even those growing their hair need regular trims so don’t forget those appointments.
  3. Using hot styling tools too often: It seems as though heat treatments are everywhere at the moment because we can get our hair exactly how we want it. But the heat is bad. Try air-drying your hair more often or opt for heatless styles to give your locks a break.
  4. Not protecting your hair from the sun: Imagine how your hair feels when you apply SPF to your skin but leave your hair to survive alone. Overexposure to the sun can cause your hair to become dry, brittle, and faded.  You don’t have to go crazy – just find a leave-in conditioner with some SPF or make 2024 the year you get into hats and fashion.
  5. Using too many hair products at once: Don’t let your hair be a product playground. It’s tempting to go wild with all the hair products out there, but too many can weigh your locks down and leave them lackluster. Keep it simple, find your hair’s BFFs, and avoid the product overload. Your hair will thank you.

You won’t wake up one morning and suddenly wonder where you’ve been hiding gorgeous hair all this time (sorry again!). Use leading products like CPR shampoo and conditioner and look after your hair this year – the results will come in time. Get compliments from all those you know.

We also want to shine a spotlight on water and healthy food before we go because too many people take these for granted. Your hair needs nutrients to grow and thrive, so don’t neglect your body’s needs. You can’t eat junk food and drink no water and hope that everything will work out fine. And above all, remember that hair is just hair. Don’t let it define your self-worth or consume too much of your time and energy
