Split Ends And Breakage? Unexpected Habits That Ruin Your Hair

No matter how much you care for your hair, split ends and breakage are something most of us have to deal with. You can use the most luxurious products and have the best genetics in the world, and still have split ends. Why? Because there are some unexpected habits that ruin your hair, and I bet you aren’t even aware of it. 

Brushing Wet Hair

Brushing wet hair is one of the biggest hair no-nos, yet many women still do it. Wet hair is much more fragile than dry hair, so brushing it can cause it to break and lead to split ends. Instead of brushing, use a wide-tooth comb to gently detangle your hair, starting from the ends and working your way up. Then, use a detangling brush only when your hair is fully dry. The same rule applies to going to bed with wet hair — just don’t do it. Your hair is much more likely to break while it’s wet. 

Wearing Tight Hairstyles

Wearing tight hairstyles, such as braids, buns, and ponytails can put a lot of tension on your hair, causing it to break. If you must wear your hair in a tight style, use satin scrunchies or hair ties that were specifically made to lower tension. Such as the Invisibubble. Tight hairstyles can also cause traction alopecia, causing our hair to fall off in the areas that are under constant pressure. There are much better ways to get your hair out of your face. You can use headbands, claw clips, or wear loose braids. 

Using Heat Every Day

Heat styling tools, such as flat irons, curling irons, and hair dryers, can cause serious damage to your hair if used every day. The heat can dry out your hair, causing it to break and lead to split ends. If you must use heat styling tools, be sure to use a heat protectant spray and keep the heat on a low setting. Also, opt for heatless hairstyles whenever you can. Once you have a good technique down, you won’t need your curling iron as much as you once did. 

Going to Bed Without a Protective Hairstyle

Going to bed without a protective hairstyle can cause your hair to rub against your pillow and become tangled, leading to breakage and split ends. To protect your hair while you sleep, consider braiding it, twisting it into a bun, or wrapping it in a satin scarf. You can also use sating pillowcases or other vegan alternatives for silk pillowcases. They are much more gentle on our hair and help preserve its health.

Not Using Leave-in Detangling Products

Not using leave-in detangling products can make it difficult to comb or brush your hair, causing it to break. To make detangling easier, consider using a leave-in conditioner or detangling spray to help loosen any knots and tangles in your hair. The type of brush you’re using is important as well. Pick one with flexible bristles, and start brushing your hair from the ends. That will help you work in sections and gently untangle any possible knots, preventing you from conducting one of the worst habits that ruin your hair.
