1. Excessive Brushing
Here’s a tip most people don’t know: one of the worst things to do to your hair is to brush it too much! That age old advice of brushing your hair 100 strokes before bed each night is nothing you should be working into your schedule; trust me! Instead, brush your hair less and use your fingers to style your hair more often, instead of your brush. An easy way to do this is to brush it first thing in the morning when you wake up. The natural oils from your head that accumulate overnight are more abundant in the morning before air, sunlight and chemicals in the air have managed to dry it out more. You’ll comb through all these natural oils first thing, distributing them down your hair shaft, which helps them condition your hair naturally. Then, don’t brush your hair the rest of the morning while you’re getting ready. Style your hair with your fingers, and even hot-roll it or tousle it dry with your hands. Don’t brush it again until bedtime, or whenever your shower.
