Taking hot showers
As much as you love hot showers, you should know that it dehydrates strands (just like skin), and strips the scalp of its natural oils, leading to dry, brittle hair that’s more prone to breakage. Instead opt for lukewarm water and try to rinse hair with the coolest temperature.

Combing wet hair
Our strands are never more fragile and prone to breakage when wet. Hence it’s important to use a wide toothed comb or let them air-dry first before any form of styling.

Not washing hair often
Skipping regular washes could lead to excessive product buildup on the scalp that can clog hair follicles. It’s essential to wash your hair every two days especially if you are sweating or using a lot of products.

Skipping meals
Starving yourself or crash dieting can cause malnutrition which could have an adverse effect on your hair. Include plenty of lean protein in your diet to curb hair loss
