Our luscious locks are so closely tied to our sense of self-identity that we cannot accept not having them. Even thoughts cause us deep pain. That’s why it’s important to pay attention to the health of your hair. And this begins with self-awareness of the cause.
Hereditary genes, poor styling, poor nutrition, and a chaotic lifestyle are some of the main factors that cause hair loss. More than half of them can be dealt with by adjusting your daily routine. Below is a short guide explaining what you should and shouldn’t do to improve your hair health. Let’s start with five things to avoid.
Do not stack products
Increasing the number of hair care products you use does not improve or improve your hair health. Hairstyle.. On the contrary, combining different hairstyle products or layering large quantities of products on the hair can have harmful effects from the chemicals contained in them. For example, alcohol and polyethylene are two important ingredients in these products, and when used together can make hair brittle and weak.
Don’t waste your money on “miracle cures”
For some products, there are always immediate results and “miracle cure” promises. Resist the urge to buy these products. Hair regrowth is a slow and rewarding process, so if you insist that a low-priced product recovers lost hair follicles instantly, it’s a danger signal. In addition, these same products can have side effects, so do your own research first and do not take action without consulting a hair specialist.
Do not wear a tightly pulled hairstyle
Hairstyles that tighten hair are one of the reasons why hair comes off. Avoid these hairstyles that force your hair into a tight style. The worst criminals are cornrows, dreadlocks, ponytails and buns. Rollers can also overtighten the strands and cause hair loss. Dermatologists suggest avoiding wearing them during sleep and limiting them only on certain occasions.
Do not expose your hair to high temperatures
High temperatures can damage your hair. Prolonged exposure to direct sunlight and excessive use of heating tools to condition hair are both harmful activities. It is not believed that high temperatures directly cause hair loss, but consistent exposure to heat reduces the amount of hair and makes it easier to break.
Do not increase the dose
We tend to think that increasing the dose of something will give faster results, but this is not a feature of hair care products. Our bodies can only process certain amounts of chemicals in a healthy way. Attempting to achieve faster results by overdose or diversifying the number of treatments does not work. Don’t rush! Good results can be achieved in just 2-4 months.
