Certain hairstyles in which you pull your hair back up too tightly, such as a high bun, tight braids or a high pony tail, can cause a lot of damage to the follicles of the hair, as they are being yanked back with force.

These hairstyles, when done on a regular basis, can cause hair loss and thinning of the hair.

2. Overuse Of Hair Products

Chemical-infused shampoos, conditioners, serums, gels, etc, are available abundantly in the markets these days; and they promise to give your hair an attractive finish.

However, regular use of such hair products can damage your hair, making it dry, unhealthy and brittle over time.

Hence, it is best to use them in moderation or use natural hair care products instead.
