5 Styling Mistakes That Are Making You Lose Hair

Written by

Everybody sheds. In reality, the general public lose around 50-100 hair per day, so it’s normal to lose a few strands even as you bathe, brushing your hair, or styling your locks. That stated your hair shouldn’t be coming out in handfuls; if it is, talk on your physician, since you might have an iron deficiency, hypothyroidism, lupus, or alopecia.

But there may be another factor you have not taken into consideration: your styling habit. Yes, that’s right, something you are doing in an attempt to make your hair look better, may in turn be making it an awful lot worse.

Heat styling your hair without any protection

Curling or straightening your hair without first applying a protective product is a surefire way to dry out the cuticle of your hair and end up with fried, thinning locks.

Brushing your hair too often

Excessive combing or brushing strains your scalp, which can cause breakage and hair loss, therefore we recommend brushing only once in the morning and once at night.

Wearing your hair pulled back tightly

Constantly wearing your hair in a tight ponytail, braid, or bun gradually pulls your hair out by the root. Over time, this kind of hair loss (called traction alopecia) can become permanent. Whenever possible, try wearing your hair down or tied loosely back.

Wearing weaves or extensions

They may be popular, but weaves and extensions are generally sewn tightly right into your hair, which can strain it.

If you do opt for extensions or a weave, treat these add-ons gently and make sure you don’t pull too hard on them when brushing.

Teasing and backcombing your hair

When done correctly, the look can be sexy and sophisticated. However, frequent tugging can put a lot of strain on your hair, which can lead to weakened hair that breaks easily. If your hair is already dry, damaged, or you see a lot of split ends then it’s probably best to avoid this.
