Everyone’s hair falls. It’s natural. An average human loses up to 100 strands of hair daily. But, the problem occurs when you notice huge chunks of hair falling out and no new growth. Excessive hair fall can happen due to a lot of reasons including health issues, hormonal imbalance, genetics, stress, etc. However, our daily activities also play a major role in the health of our hair. Here are five mistakes you are making every day that are making your hair fall out drastically.
- 01. Being reckless with your hair wash schedule
- 02.Not using a heat protectant
- 03. Not being mindful about your diet
- 04. Not using the right products
- 05. Tying your hair too tight
01. Being reckless with your hair wash schedule
Sure, washing your hair daily makes one feel and look fresh. But washing your hair too often or with products that are too harsh can lead to hair loss. Your hair benefits a lot from the natural oils on the scalp. These oils keep the tresses nourished. When you wash your hair daily or too often, you end up stripping your scalp of the essential oils, causing dryness. Try limiting your hair wash to 2-3 times a week.
If you use shampoos that are too harsh or drying, your hair will get weaker and you’ll face more hair fall and breakage. Use nourishing shampoos and conditioners like the Love Beauty & Planet Onion Blackseed & Patchouli Hair Fall Control Sulfate Free Shampoo & Conditioner. This duo is sulfate-free, which means it cleans your scalp without over-drying or affecting the barrier of your scalp. It's also enriched with steam-distilled natural onion bulb oil and black seed to prevent hair fall and give you the bouncy hair of your dreams. Plus, the scent of hand-picked Indonesian Patchouli will keep your tresses smelling divine all day long.
02.Not using a heat protectant
When it comes to hair care, heat is your biggest enemy. We all like styling our hair but not using a heat protectant is a big NO. When you skip heat protectant one too many times before styling your hair, you’re causing irreversible damage to your hair. This will lead to hair fall eventually. Always use a heat protectant on your tresses before using any heat styling devices.
Our go-to is the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray. It not only provides maximum protection but also adds a marvellous shine to the hair, thanks to the goodness of marula oil in the formula.
03. Not being mindful about your diet
A lot of people make the mistake of only counting calories when logging in their daily food intake. But, what matters more than your calorie digits is the number of nutrients you have consumed throughout the day. Make sure you eat foods that are rich in protein, biotin, antioxidants and vitamins. Consume healthy items like eggs, nuts, spinach, berries and fish to ensure your hair receives everything it needs to grow.
04. Not using the right products
Haircare goes beyond shampoos and conditioners. Every now and then, you have to provide your hair with additional moisture to keep it thick and bouncy. Hair masks are the best way to deliver additional moisturise to your tresses. The TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Deep Smoothing Mask not only keeps hair strong but also tackles five hair troubles in one. It makes hair softer, shiner, tangle-free, frizz-free and manageable for up to 72 hours. The reduction of tangles further prevents breakage and tugging during styling. Win-win!
05. Tying your hair too tight
This one is a no-brainer. If you tie hair too tight it will tug on the roots and ultimately cause hair fall. Tie your hair in relaxing updos like a low ponytail or a low bun, which keeps your hair out of your face and looking cute.
