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.

1. Slough away dead cells to reveal softer, more luminous skin. Even if you already use a physical exfoliator (a formula boasting scrubbing beads to buff your complexion), adding a chemical exfoliator to your regimen will make a big difference in the look and feel of your skin. Once a week (or twice, depending on how sensitive your skin is), skip using your usual serum or moisturizer, and replace it with a leave-on chemical exfoliator, like Le Weekend De Chanel Weekly Renewing Face Care, which uses ingredients like glycolic acid to exfoliate your skin deeply, cleansing your pores of dirt, oil, bacteria, and debris that can lead to breakouts, and rose water to help calm the skin as the exfoliator does its work. Just remember to apply sunscreen immediately afterward, since it will make your skin sensitive to the sun's rays.
