When it comes to hair styling, whether you believe it or not, there’s a lot of room for error, no matter how cautious you are.
Well, that’s a fact! You may end up making a number of mistakes while styling your hair and that too, without you noticing what you’re doing wrong! And the worst part- these little blunders may simply end up spelling disaster for your hair.
Let’s have a look at the top hairstyling mistakes that often go unnoticed.
Skipping heat protectants:
That’s the worst thing you can ever do to your hair!
It’s a no-brainer that the heat from the flat irons, hair curlers and blow dryers causes the hair to become brittle easily leading to breakage. If you don’t shield your hair before subjecting the hair to any kind of heating tools, you are probably making your hair miserable.
The best solution to this problem is to use an appropriate heat protectant on the hair before you begin styling it.
Prolonged use of flat irons and curlers:
You’ve got every right to style your hair the way you want. However, that doesn’t mean you’ve to go crazy about hair styling!
It’s okay to style your hair occasionally but doing it every day may simply do more harm than good even if you are using heat protectants. As a matter of fact, your favorite hair styling tools tend to sap moisture from the hair, making it coarse and dry, making it weak and brittle.
So make it a point to reduce the usage of hair styling tools and opt for no-heat hairstyles as much as possible.
Overusing hair styling products:
Today, you can find a number of hair styling products right from hair setting gels to hair sprays to pomade to mousse and so on. These products, when used in a controlled manner, can actually help you look great but overusing these products can wreck a havoc on your gorgeous locks!
So, it’s extremely important to use just the right amount of hair product so as to get the best results that too without damaging your hair.
Neglecting the roots:
Though it’s the sleek lengths and the curls that are styled we cannot deny that roots are the support system of those gorgeous locks!
You ignore your hair roots and you’re headed towards dry, damaged and unhealthy looking hair.
In order to avoid this blunder, you need to give your roots the support and care they deserve. Make sure that you do everything needed to keep them healthy.
Coloring your hair too often:
Coloring your hair is exciting, fun and experimental. However, getting used to it and neglecting the health of your hair is not at all a good idea!
Coloring your color too often can literally disintegrate your hair over time. So, it’s imperative that you control your excitement and let your hair take a break from the intense color treatment.
Not trimming regularly:
Whenever you get a new haircut, it lasts only for 6-12 weeks. Thereafter, split ends and other such hair problems may start showing up that may further deteriorate the health of your hair.
So, it’s necessary to keep all such hair issues at bay and go for regular trims every 6-12 weeks.
Avoid these mistakes and you’ll never stop loving your gorgeous locks!
