There are a lot of myths as to how you can grow long, silky hair. Oils, special shampoos, crazy routines, and possibly even a sacrifice here and there are a few ways people attempt to get beautiful hair. Trying to obtain beautiful hair could be as simple as stopping some really damaging habits that you might not even realize are adversely affecting your hair.
1. The Wrong Shampoo
You could very well be using the wrong shampoo. If you color your hair it’s important to use color-safe shampoos to maintain the color and the shine. It’s important to buy shampoo that does not contain sulfates.
2. Find the Shampoo Sweet Spot
You could very well be shampooing your hair either too much or not enough. It’s best to shampoo 3 to 4 times a week, and condition every day.
3. Not Trimming Your Hair
If you’re trying to grow your hair out, it’s best to get a trim every three months to rid of the dead hair and allow new hair to grow.
4. Rough Towel Drying
Roughly rubbing and drying your hair with a towel could cause breakage in your hair. It’s typically best to allow your hair to air dry, but if you have to dry it with a towel, lightly squeeze the towel along your hair.
5. The Shower’s Too Hot
I don’t know about you but I love a steaming hot shower. This however is extremely damaging and drying to your hair. If you see steam, it’s too hot.
