7. You Rub Your Hair Instead of Blotting It
We’re not saying to dump your towel. But if you rub your wet hair deeply with a towel, you could actually be hurting it! Instead of rubbing it or wrapping it too much, simply blot wet areas. This can prevent breakage.
8. You Expose Your Hair to the Sun
Everyone loves a good beach day or an afternoon by the pool, but if you have bleached or highlighted hair, you can literally cause your hair to break and fall off! Salt from the oceans actually hardens your hair and creates a very hard film on it, and the chlorine water from the pool has several chemicals that can cause major damage, but to help this, add some argan oil to your hair before swimming. You can thank us later!
9. You Use Heat on Your Hair
To heat or not to heat? That is the question! And while blow-drying is popular and often deemed necessary, it actually damages the surface of your hair strands. However, you can air dry OR use a lower setting for the heat. Don’t over use heat, but don’t under use it either. Just be modest!
