Normally sometimes your hair undergoes plenty of stress. But the point is that the stress may be extended because of some hair mistakes. What are those hair mistakes you may make in your daily life? Several experts give their explanation.
Don’t: “Don’t have your hair over processed to follow a hair trend”, said Rita Hazan, a celebrity colorist who once styled iconic hair makeovers for Jessica Simpson, Beyonce, Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez and more.
Reason: Hair may suffer from serious hair damage resulted from coloring too often.
Fixing method: Avoid bleaching your fragile and dry hair. Apply conditioning treatments once or twice a week to restore it. For Hazan, a consistent color schedule and regularly repairing treatment work well in keeping Jessica Simpson’s hair healthy.
Don’t: “Don’t dry your cowlicks and fringe before styling,” said Christina Swmonds, hairstylist of Harper Salon in Los Angeles who works with Kristen Bell, Baley Cuoco-Sweeting and Anna Faris.
Reason: If your cowlicks and fringe are air dry before styling, it is difficult to manipulate and style it. This brings undesired flyways or messy hair look.
Fixing method: Spritz a little Batiste Dry Shampoo in the roots of your dry cowlicks and fringe, so that oils and sweat that can disrupt your style can be soaked up, according to Symonds.
Don’t: “Don’t wash your hair every day,” said Jennifer Loura, senior stylist of Benjamin Salon in Los Angeles, who works with Cat Deeley and Katrina Bowden.
Reason: Excessive sebum may be produced if you wash your hair too often, and washing your hair too frequently can also strip your hair of essential oil working in moisturizing and protecting your hair, according to hair goddess Connie Britton.
Fixing method: Try not to wash your hair too often, at least once every other day. To extend the life and texture of your current style, use hair powder.
Don’t: Don’t blow dry upside down, according to Joseph DiMaggio, who is the master session ambassador for Daviens North America.
Reason: You blow dry your hair to close or seal the cuticle, but flipping the hair over can push the cuticle up and rough up the hair.
Fixing method: Use a concentrator nozzle on the head of your blow dryer, so that it can concentrate on the point you want to dry, which help to close the cuticle. If you want to add more volume, apply a volumizing mousse. When applying the mousse, use a brush to apply it evenly to your hair.
Don’t: “Don’t dye your hair more than once every year or every six months,” said Marie Robinson, a colorist and founder of Marie Robinson salon, who works with celebrities like Emma Stone, Michelle Williams, Anne Hathaway, etc.
Reason: There is averagely six inches growth of the hair for every people. Dyeing your hair more than once every six months does not benefit your recovering your hair, leading to dull and fragile hair.
Fixing method: Resist the urge of dyeing your hair. For a dramatic change, you are suggested cutting your hair meanwhile.
