Bad hair days are just a part of life and when they come you have to deal with it, right? Hide it under a scarf or grab into a high ponytail. But have you ever wondered why this happens? We have and discovered a bunch of reasons why your hair isn’t behaving the way you want it to. Here are some mistakes most women make that lead to bad hair days.
- Using very hot water
- Changing your shampoo too often
- Not rinsing off properly
- Your hair needs a trim
- Unhealthy diet
Using very hot water
One of the worst things you can put on your hair is hot water. It quickly opens the hair cuticles, robbing all the natural oils and making them prone to breakage. Wash your hair with lukewarm water to retain all the natural moisture.
Changing your shampoo too often
While some trial and error is required to see which products work well for your hair frequently changing your hair care products will wreak havoc. Your hair needs some time to adjust from one product to the other. Those who live in metropolitan cities can trust the Dove Environmental Defence Shampoo to clean, nourish and protect their hair from the harmful effects of pollution.
Not rinsing off properly
Not rinsing off your shampoo and conditioner well causes dirt build-up and increases the need for frequent washes. Make sure you rinse your hair clean and no residue is left behind.
Your hair needs a trim
Split ends are ugly and the sooner you get rid of them the lesser bad hair days. If your hair looks limp and lifeless and dry, brittle at the ends it’s time to book an appointment at your nearest Lakme Salon right away.
If you have a mood of your own where you put donut and fries into the body, your hair will also decide to have a life of their own. Your hair gets its share of proteins from the food you eat so a box of cupcakes won’t help. For strong and healthy hair eat foods like bananas, eggs, fish and spinach.
