Struggling with dry, dull, and brittle hair but don’t know why? The answer can be much simpler than you’ve ever thought!

1. Hairspray

Styling products, especially those, which become crispy on top of your hair shafts — like hairspray, wax, and mousses — can cause breakage. Consider limiting your use of these as much as possible and stick to the softer, lighter ones.

2. Tight Hairstyles

A fan of the elaborate updos and tight ponytails? Think about changing up your style a little bit. The constant tugging and pressure put on the strands make them susceptible to damage. Let your locks down from time to time to reduce the harm.

3. Styling

Learn to leave your house without doing your hair first, especially if it is not needed. Turn to curling wands and straightening irons only if it is a special occasion or you need to look particularly done up. Set the tools aside if you are going to shop for groceries or going to mall. The same goes for your blow dryer. Use it only when time pressed or learn to get by with the lowest setting only. Heat is detrimental to your strands, and you should not take advantage of it.

4. Chemicals

We all like to visit a fashion hair salon once in awhile, but maybe choose a pampering blowout instead of a dye job or chemical altering. In theory, a perm is a nice way to free yourself from having to curl your locks on a daily basis. Not so much in reality, though. Perms and relaxing as well as keratin treatments are designed to change the structure of the hair shaft, which often leads to damage and lack of luster. You favorite hair dye is also not the healthiest substance to put on your tresses since it promotes brittleness.

5. Shampoo

Yes, my dear friend, your shampoo, indeed, can be harmful to your locks, especially if they are on a drier side. Too much shampooing — especially when done incorrectly — can strip your hair of the much needed natural oils and moisture. Limit your poo usage to 3 times per week at most and learn to avoid rubbing your strands when cleansing them. Massage the lather into your scalp and rinse it out. The remaining length of your hair will get washed second-handedly when the soap is being rinsed.

These were five reasons behind your damaged hair and tips on how to deal with it!
