Don’t we all love voluminous tresses? Well, let’s just say it is the best natural accessory anyone can have. But what if you struggle with your hair, and it doesn’t end up looking like you’d want it to? Most of you might say it’s a part and parcel of life, and we agree. All we’re trying to say is that a bad hair day once in a while is ‘normal’, but if you find yourself crying over the state of your hair all the time, then we need to get to the root of the problem. Yes ladies, these things do not happen by chance. There’s a reason for everything! 

So let’s not waste more time, and get to the real matter. Are you ready to find out all about the reasons for those bad hair days? 

1. A poor diet

Well, this is a no-brainer. That’s because ‘you are what you eat’ holds true in every way. Your food choices determine the health of your hair, ladies. So, if you consume a nutritious diet that is rich in fruits and veggies, your tresses are going to be happy and healthy. 

But if your regular diet includes a lot of junk like those cheesy burgers and mugs of beer or cola, then there’s bound to be a problem. If your body doesn’t receive adequate nutrients, how’s it going to help your hair? So, fix your diet and see the difference. 

2. High levels of stress

Again, stress is one of the biggest reasons for everything going wrong in our bodies. That’s because when you are stressed, your body releases the hormone cortisol in large amounts. When that happens, your hair follicles also face undue pressure. How? Your hair becomes extremely dry, and it also causes thinning. So, sit back and de-stress after a long day. It will help your mind (and your hair) get back to life!

3. Washing your hair daily

Most people believe washing their hair every single day is essential, but guess what? It isn’t, unless you work out vigorously and your tresses are covered in sweat. Otherwise, three times a week is good enough to keep your hair clean. That’s because when you shampoo daily, the product removes essential oils that are naturally produced to keep those locks healthy and strong. When those oils are eliminated, your hair is likely to get more brittle and dry. So ladies, now you know what you should be doing!

4. Too much hot water

Who doesn’t love a hot shower, either in the morning or before bedtime? Doesn’t it relax you and make you feel rejuvenated? All that’s great, but using steaming hot water for your hair is a bad idea. That’s because this water robs your hair of necessary moisture, and then your hair acts all cranky. We mean it doesn’t stay in place! It also means that you’re subjecting your tresses to intensive heat, which might cause extreme damage to your hair. Oh, it could even burn it! 

5. Missing haircuts

Are you someone who isn’t too bothered about getting regular haircuts? If that’s you, then brace yourself for a range of health issues. When you get your hair trimmed every now and then, you can get rid of split ends. That’s highly important because it will help in the healthy growth of your tresses!
