If you want great hair, there are a few things you need to stop doing.

Here’s a list of things you shouldn’t do to your hair:

1. Towel-drying hair

Towels can create a harsh friction against the hair cuticle that scrubs off leave-in conditioners and damages strands.

2.  Over-washing hair

Don’t wash your hair everyday. It will strip essential oils from you hair.

3. Exposure to heat

Your hair shouldn’t constantly be subjected to a ton of heat (from the sun or styling tools) — unless you want it to frizz all of the time!

7. Not conditioning your hair

Conditioning not only protects your hair, adds shine and increases growth, but it also prevents breakage and damage to the internal hair shaft.

The ends of your hair should be the focus when putting on this super-hydrating product.

10. Smoking

Smoking is one of the worst things you could ever do for your hair. It dries it out, makes it stink and increases breakage.

11. Colouring your hair

Avoid artificial colouring. It damages the hair shaft, even more so than heat does.

15. Prolonging a haircut or trim

Skipping trims seems like the obvious choice, but once you start collecting split ends that break and destroy the shape of your hair, you’ll regret it.
