In our quest for beautiful hair, we often do things that damage our hair. Damaged hair is fragile, so it tends to break. Hair breakage can leave us with frizzy, unhealthy looking hair. If we continue to damage our hair, we may eventually see thinning hair or even bald spots.

Here you’ll find 10 common hair care practices that can damage hair and dermatologists’ tips that can help you to stop the damage.

  1. Washing your hair by rubbing shampoo into the length of your hair. Changes that can help prevent hair damage:
    • Gently massage shampoo into your scalp.
    • When you rinse the shampoo from your scalp, let it flow through the length of your hair and resist the temptation to rub it into your hair.
  2. Skipping the conditioner. Changes that can help prevent hair damage:
    • Use conditioner after every shampoo.
  3. Drying your hair by rubbing it with a towel. Changes that can help prevent hair damage:
    • Wrap your hair in a towel to absorb the water.
    • Let your hair air dry.
  4. Brushing your hair while it is wet. Changes that can help prevent hair damage:
    • Do you have straight hair? Let your hair dry a bit before you gently comb it with a wide-tooth comb.
    • Do you have textured hair or tight curls? Always comb your hair while it is damp, using a wide-tooth comb.
  5. Applying styling products that offer long-lasting hold. Changes that can help prevent hair damage:
    • Try a hairstyle that does not require this product.
