2) Tying up our hair too tight

We understand messy buns and high pony tails are in trend but tying your hair way too tight can can lead to breakage and weaker roots.

3) Skipping Conditioner

Do not skip conditioning, guys! 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 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.

The potential health benefits of drinking green tea are almost countless. "The antioxidant EGCG has been studied to treat various diseases and may help with brain function, fat loss, and lowering the risk of cancer," says Snyder. "Polyphenols are another antioxidant plentiful in green tea and can reduce the formation of free radicals in the body, protecting our cells from aging and other diseases." Keep your sipping to one or two cups a day as green tea is high in caffeine, which is best consumed in moderation, says Snyder. As for which to buy: "It's great to use organic loose leaf tea or tea bags that contain loose leaves, which are higher quality and are less processed," she says, as opposed to tea 'dust.'
