And if you thought you're alone when it comes to making mistakes, you are not. These hair mistakes are very common and almost every single one of us has made them at some point of time or the other.

But these are very damaging, even if they may seem like little mistakes at first. In the long run they can make your hair very weak. Here are some common habits that ruin your hair.


Washing Everyday:

Some girls have oily hair and feel the need to wash their hair every day. This is not a very good idea no matter how oily your scalp is. Washing your hair every day can strip it of its natural oils.


Conditioner On Scalp:

It is best to use conditioner only on the ends of your hair. Using it on the scalp would make your hair very greasy.


Combing Wet Hair:

Your hair is really sensitive when it is wet. Combing wet hair would make it more prone to breakage and falling by weakening it from the roots.


Not Using Heat Protection:

You have to keep a barrier between your hair and the heat styling tool. So use a serum or cream to shield your hair from getting burnt. After all, no one likes the look of burnt hair.


Tying Wet Hair:

One of the major causes of dandruff and other such problems is tying wet hair. If you don't give your hair the time to dry, there are more chances of infections to develop.


Using Iron On Wet Hair:

Do not straighten your hair when your hair is wet. Use a blow dryer to blow dry it and then straighten it.
