7 Bad Hair Care Habits That Makes Your Hair Frizzier.
- Using shampoos that have chemicals like sulfates
Sulfate is a strong detergent that is often added to shampoos. Sulfate not just cleans the dirt, it can also strip hair of natural oils and dry out your hair leading to frizz.
What To Do: Use sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners, recommended by a Dermatologist. Check out these best chemical-free shampoos available in India.
- Using alcohol-based hair products
Alcohol dries out your hair, leaving it brittle and frizz-prone.
What To Do: Try using hair styling oils/creams without alcohol as it helps lock in moisture and protects the shine of your hair.
- Taking head-bath in super hot water
When you wash your hair with hot water, it strips the hair of the natural oils, which is a necessary ingredient to maintain moisture in your hair and keep it smooth.
What To Do: Always take a bath in cold or lukewarm water.
- Repeatedly touching your hair too much
Playing with your hair too much, especially when it’s wet spoils the natural curls or wave patterns it has. When the curl loses its definition, it can get frizzy.
What To Do: Keep your hands off your hair.
- Drying your hair with a towel
The habit of crushing your wet hair up in a towel to dry it causes frizzy hair. It causes rough hair cuticles that don’t align with your other hair strands.
What To Do: Let your hair air dry.
- Overusing heat hair styling tools
Constant use of blow dryers, flat irons, or curling iron to style your hair damages your hair and strips it of moisture causing your hair to frizz.
What To Do: Minimize the use of heated styling tools (if you can) and let your hair air dry naturally. Protect your hair with a thermal protectant spray before heat styling.
- Over Brushing your hair
Brush your hair only to untangle your locks. Over-brushing, hair stretches your strands and damages your hair causing frizz.
What To Do: Gently brush your hair only when needed from root to hair tips to distribute naturally occurring scalp oils. Do not rip it through.
