Don't Make These Hair Mistakes!

Hair behaving badly? Not doing what you want? You've probably been making these common hair care mistakes and by following these tips you will soon have the shiny, silky hair you've always wanted!

Mistake 1 - Towel drying your hair - with a towel
Now this is a fast track way to damaged hair as it is most venerable when wet. It can also make your hair frizzy as you are rubbing the stands the wrong way. Swap the towel for an old shirt for a more gentle drying experience and to promote shiny hair. I personally never use a towel on my hair other than to squeeze out excess water.

Mistake 2 - Wearing a ponytail too high
Or any style which involves tying your hair up, as it can weaken the hair, especially if it is always in the same place. If you do want to tie your tresses up, use something made from a soft material or a scrunchie.

Mistake 3 - Not using protection
Of the heat kind. You don't want burnt hair! Using heat appliances regularly without any heat protection can cause fizziness and can cause hair to break off. It can also make it very dry and hard to do anything with.

Mistake 4 - Brushing your hair wrong
When tackling your tangled tresses, always start from the ends and work your way up to the roots. If you start from the roots, you'll be pushing the tangles down your hair, causing your hair to become damaged.

Mistake 5 - Not drying hair before styling
Hair should be 100% dry before you let the straighteners/curling tongs anywhere near it, and this includes any dampness from products. If you don't, you are essentially boiling the product to your hair - not good, especially if it contains alcohol!

Follow these tips and you should soon have the hair of your dreams! (May take a while for these tips to work, so don't give up too early!)
