Charleston Hair Salon Hair Care Mistakes That Damage Your Hair

Charleston Hair Salon Hair Care Mistakes That Damage Your Hair, your hair can be beautiful and shiny or the curse of your existence. However you feel about your hair, odds are you want it to be healthy.

The Hair and Makeup Salon of Lashes and Lace have compiled a list of hair care mistakes that you may want to avoid. 

Many of us grew up with our mothers telling us that brushing our hair 100 strokes a day will make it shine.  This couldn’t be farther from the truth.  All you need is a few strokes to style hair and spread the natural oils from roots to ends.  One hundred strokes is too much, you'll do more damage than good. 

Hair will break if you tug and brush it too much. On the other hand gentle brushing with a few strokes will make hair shine by distributing the natural oils from the scalp down the hair shafts and flattening the cuticles to make them reflect more light.

Blow drying, can give you a more controlled style, yet is one of the worst things you can do.  Each of your hair strands is covered with shingle-like structures called cuticles.  Blow drying causes heat damage making your hair cuticles become dry, rigid and brittle. 

Avoid hair spray and infusing your hair with too many chemicals.  The last things you want to do are cause build-up and strip your hair of its natural oils. Make sure you keep the number of chemical processes to a minimum, and consider establishing a routine that involves preemptive care before undergoing chemical treatments.
