We’ve all been guilty of falling into bad hair habits at some point. Whether it’s the overuse of hot styling tools, neglecting proper hair care routines, or being unaware of harmful practices, our hair can suffer the consequences. In this blog post, we will discuss the various habits that unknowingly are damaging your hair. By identifying and understanding these habits, we can take proactive steps to break them and cultivate healthier hair habits that promote the vitality and beauty of our locks.
Skipping Heat Protection and SPF
Summertime is all about soaking up the sunshine, but just like we slather on SPF for our skin, our hair needs some love too! It’s time to double down on hair protection this summer to prevent future hair damage. SPF helps shield your hair from the sun’s harmful rays, keeping your color vibrant and preventing it from thinning. Remembering to use heat protectants while styling your hair with hot tools is equally as important. The intense heat from tools like straighteners, curling irons, and hair dryers can strip away moisture from your hair, leaving it dry and brittle. To help prevent damage here at DeRiah, we recommend using the Oribe Invisible Defense Universal Protection Spray. This amazing heat protectant protects your hair from harmful UV rays and thermal damage up to 450°F.
Sleeping with wet hair
If you are somebody who prefers to wash their hair at night, it’s important to make sure your hair is completely dry before getting in your beauty rest. Sleeping with wet hair can be damaging to your locks in several ways. When your hair is wet, it becomes more vulnerable and delicate, making it prone to breakage. The friction caused by tossing and turning on a pillow can lead to hair strands getting tangled and possibly being pulled out. Wet hair is much more susceptible to stretching which can weaken the hair and cause it to frizz. You can add in the Oribe Imperial Blowout Transformative Styling Creme for extra body and style before drying. Your hair will thank you with a gorgeous, frizz-free wake-up call!
Wearing Tight Hairstyles Often
We all love to wear those sleek and classy pulled-back hairstyles, but wearing them too often can cause real damage to your beautiful hair. Those tight ponytails, buns, and braids can put excessive tension on your hair. This can lead to hair breakage, hairline stress, and a sensitive scalp. Let’s not forget about those unsightly dents and kinks they leave behind—major buzzkill! To address these concerns, after taking your hairstyle out at the end of a long day, consider giving your scalp some much-needed assistance with the Oribe Serene Scalp Soothing Leave-On Hair Treatment. This product can help soothe your sensitive scalp. It’s time to let your hair down and allow it to breathe and move freely, embracing loose and playful hairstyles that won’t cause damage.
