What damages your hair?
 

What damages your hair?

Hair damage depends and is drastically impacted by several factors—it could be something as basic as your pillowcase and it could be something as massive as a lifestyle choice. Extreme weather conditions and environmental pollution are key factors that cause hair damage!

To prevent your hair from such extreme damage, it is advisable to build a hair care routine that suits best for your climatic surroundings and your hair type. Heat styling or overexposure to a windy environment can degrade the texture of your hair. It is also recommended that you avoid frequent styling of your hair by using heat as it draws out the moisture and nourishment from the hair strands making them dull, dry and lifeless. Heat also disturbs the natural genetic build-up of your hair and makes your strands brittle and broken.

When exposed to the harsh environment, always cover your hair with a scarf or a hat to reduce the stress on your hair strands. Use silk pillowcases rather than cotton or any other fibre as silk has a smooth texture and reduces friction between your hair and the pillow. Other fabrics like cotton or cashmere are a bit rough on your hair and may cause in slight hair fall.
