Whether it’s due to an improper diet, environmental factors or lack of a proper hair care routine, seeing hair strands on your hairbrush hurts worse than heartbreak. But did you know there is another thing that may be adding to your hair fall woes? Your hairstyle. Yes, you read that right. Tight, pulled back hairstyles tug on your hair follicles and can cause hair fall. The idea is to go for hairstyles that don’t require a lot of tugging and pulling. So, to help you through, we have picked out five easy everyday hairstyles that you can try to prevent hair fall.
- 01. Loose braid
- 02. Wear them down
- 03. Half up, half down with a claw clip
- 04. Messy, loose updo
- 05. Low bun with a headband
01. Loose braid
Just to be clear, when we say braid, we mean a loose and easy, three-strand braid and not the intricate ones that require a lot of tugging and pulling. This simple hairstyle is perfect for those lazy days where you don’t feel like doing much with your hair. Pull your hair back and tie it in a simple, loose braid. Accessorise with a cute scarf, and you’re good to go.
02. Wear them down
Simple and chic! Just comb your hair to get rid of all the tangles and knots and let your hair flow in its natural state. This way, you won’t be constantly tugging or pulling on your tresses. So, just let them loose and maybe add a pretty hair clip on the side to amp things up.
03. Half up, half down with a claw clip
Claw clips are back in vogue and how! They hold your hair back perfectly without tugging on it. So, for all you lovelies on the go, just pull back half of your hair from the front and use your fave claw clip to secure them in place. No more annoying hair-in-the-face situations and you’ll end up looking effortlessly chic as well. Could you ask for anything better? We think not.
04. Messy, loose updo
Sleek and tight updos are a big no-no if you wish to prevent hair fall, but that doesn’t mean you have to leave your hair open throughout the day. You can opt for a slightly messy and loose version of your favorite updo. Pull back all your hair at the crown of your head and twist it into a bun. Make sure to keep it loose and messy. This look is perfect for your office or even brunch out with your girl pals — just add a cutesy scarf and you’re ready to roll!
05. Low bun with a headband
Messy, low buns are always a good idea. It lends an effortless vibe to your overall look, without all the tugging and pulling *phew*. Just gather your hair around the nape of the neck, twist it into a bun and secure it with a claw clip or upin. Add a pretty headband to spruce up your hairstyle.
