To keep our hair healthy and strong we all have a hair care routine as per our hair's needs and suitability. Change of weather, sun exposure, change of products, use of heat tools are some of the reasons that lead to the hair problems such as hair fall, dandruff, breakage, dryness, etc. Knowingly or unknowingly we make certain mistakes that lead to hair damage. Our hair is a very important part of our beauty as it gives a frame to us giving it a complete look. Following are some of the hair mistakes that you may have added to your hair care routine:
Frequent or inadequate use of shampoo Shampooing your hair too often may lead to severe dryness and breakage. Also, it can remove natural oils from the scalp leaving the roots weaker. Whereas insufficient or less shampooing can lead to scalp damage-causing the build-up of dust and grime. You need to check the hair and scalp type before shampooing your hair, that should be appropriate for your hair. The moderate number of hair wash in a week should be 2 to 3 times a week. Choose a shampoo with natural ingredients and which is gentle on hair to keep hair protected and strong.
Use of heat tools or hot water Protect your hair from excessive heat be it from heat tools, hot water or sun. Excessive heat is one of the reasons that causes severe hair problems due to the loss of protein. It leads to weaker roots causing hair fall, breakage and dull hair. Avoid using heat tools regularly and always use regular water or lukewarm water for head wash. Before going to sun exposure for long hours, cover your hair with a scarf or apply a serum for protection against heat.
Tying hair too tightly Tying your hair too tightly can directly affect the hair follicles thereby causing hair fall. Tying your hair too tightly weakens the hair roots and leaves strong hairlines. Tie your hair with moderate pressure to keep the hair roots and follicles
Using wrong products While selecting the hair care products we unknowingly add some products to our hair care routine which are more harmful instead of benefiting us. Using unsuitable or chemical products for hair can cause damage to each strand of hair. These can harm your scalp leading to hair fall or hair loss. Sulfates, parabens, polyethylene Glycols (PEG), phthalates, and formaldehyde are the major chemicals causing hair problems. While selecting hair care products make sure to add natural products as much as possible. Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic's hair care range is aromatherapy-based and enriched with natural extracts. This range is 100% free of parabens, soap, alcohol, artificial coloring, and fragrance.
Not applying or incorrectly applying hair conditioner Conditioner is applied to the hair after shampoo that helps seal the hair follicles and lock in the nourishment. Conditioner keeps the hair softer, shinier and manageable. Not applying conditioner to hair after shampoo can make hair brittle, easy to tangle, and prone to breakage. Blossom Kochhar Aroma Magic Cream Conditioner is 100% free of parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates, sulfates, toxic ingredients, artificial coloring, and fragrances.
Improper Scalp Care Scalp care is a must when it comes to keeping your hair healthy and strong. An unhealthy scalp is marked by dryness, flaking, itching or excessive build-up causing hair roots and strands to weaken which may break easily, fall out or the texture of the hair may decline. Proper scalp care should be given with cleansing, exfoliating and hair masks.
