3) Skipping Conditioner

Do not skip conditioning, guys. I repeat DO NOT SKIP CONDITIONING your hair. That's one rule that you need to follow for happy hair. Skipping conditioning is just like not applying moisturizer to your skin which results in dryness. Concentrate on your ends, as dry ends as we all know is a universal prob.

4) Eating Poorly

Your hair reflects whatever your eat. Missing out on vitamins and proteins can actually thinner your hair and damage them. Never skip your breakfast and make sure you eat food that nourishes your strands, ex- almonds, eggs.

5) Using too much chemicals

Excessive chemicals can harm your fabulous hair. Make sure you don't go over-board with colouring, keratin-ing or any other treatments that involve chemicals as it can lead to extreme hair damage and breakage.

6) Sleeping on cotton

Cotton pillowcases cause friction and lead to damage and frizz. For healthy hair, sleep on a silk pillowcase so that your hair doesn't lose its natural moisture. You can also wrap your hair in a silk or satin scarf.

7) Brushing your hair from Top to bottom

Make sure you are using right technique to brush your hair. Divide your hair into four sections and gently brush your hair from bottom to top. This way your hair won't break. Also, it's an easier way to resolve tangled hair.
