Hair fall is one of the most common problems faced by people all over the world. And while the reasons for hair fall vary from external factors such as weather, pollution and dust to internal factors such as your stress level and diet.
And even if these factors remain favourable, you can still experience hair loss because of certain mistakes you’re making. If you want to put an end to the saga of losing tresses, then here are five things that you should stop doing right now!
While shampooing and washing your hair is the most important step in maintaining good scalp hygiene, doing it too often can backfire. If you wash your hair too often, then there are high chances that you are stripping your scalp of its natural oils. Doing this again and again can pluck your hair from the roots leading to hair fall. Even if you have an oily scalp, you shouldn’t wash your hair more four times a week.

Do you too towel dry your hair vigorously? If you are guilty of this then you should stop it! Rough and intense towel drying can create friction, and also cause hair to get pulled from the roots. So try being a little gentle with your hair. And instead of your regular towel, switch to a microfibre one which is softer on your hair and also reduces friction.
Blow dryers, straighteners, and curler can all make your hair look fabulous. But they can also expose your hair to extreme heat, damaging your hair follicles in the process. So, what should you do? If you style your hair very regularly then invest in good quality styling tools that use less heat. And do not forget to apply a heat protectant gel or spray before using it.
When your hair is wet, it is more prone to breakage. So, make sure you ditch the habit of brushing your hair while it is wet. Instead, you can use a wide-toothed comb to gently untangle your hair when it’s almost dry.
There’s not a single woman who doesn’t like a sleek high ponytail! But ladies, this can really pull your hair tight, damaging hair follicles and further leading to hair fall. So, ditch all those tight hairstyles to avoid unnecessary breakage.
So, put an end to these mistakes because they could very well be the reasons for hair fall.
