Avoid the temptation of hot showers, as scalding water can strip your hair of its natural oils, leaving it dry and prone to damage.
Resist the urge to wash your hair daily; overwashing can lead to a dry scalp and brittle strands. Opt for a schedule that suits your hair type and lifestyle.
Using excessive shampoo or conditioner can weigh down your hair and make it greasy. Use a moderate amount and focus on the roots and ends.
Excessive use of hot styling tools can cause heat damage. Apply a heat protectant before styling to shield your hair from the heat.
Brushing or combing your hair without detangling first can lead to breakage. Start with a detangling spray or conditioner to gently ease out knots.
Vigorous towel-drying can lead to frizz and breakage. Instead, gently pat your hair with a soft towel to absorb excess water.
Forgetting to apply a leave-in conditioner or serum post-wash can leave your hair unprotected. Lock in moisture for a smooth and shiny finish.
