SOME WAYS WE SABOTAGE OUR HAIR
Washing too often
one of the most common ways we sabotage our own hair is by washing it too much , which leaves our hair feeling super, squeaky clean and which simultaneously make it dry and brittle in the process.
Avoid washing your hair too much since some shampoos contain ingredients that can strip hair of its natural oil. you could go 3 to 4 days without washing hair depending on your daily activities.
Drying hair for a long period of time can make your hair fizzy, brittle and cause it to break from constant heat exposure. Try not to dry your hair for more than 5-10 minutes if you must use heat. Let your hair air dry as much as possible.
Always check the heat setting and be sure it is not set too high, so that it does not burn your hair and cause heat damage.
