How you are ruining your hair mindlessly?


We all damage our hair. We do in it different ways. Some of us are well aware of it, some of us are not. There are some obvious ways that we harm our hair like by bleaching, straightening, curling our hair, But there are a lot of other times we merely do it out of our habits. Once we unknowingly have caused a lot of damage, we begin to search for best hair clinic Dubai in order to restore the health of our hair. Let’s explore these habits we have all formed over years which are damaging to our locks:

Unclean hair tools

When was the last time, you cleaned your comb, brush or curling iron?  Don’t you remember? It is extremely important to clean your hair tools as they can clog the pores on your scalp which is not in the least benefit of your hair.

Cotton pillows cases

Most of us sleep on cotton pillows. Its comfortable for you but not for your hair. Cotton pillow covers suck the moisture out of your hair, making them appear dry and dull. Invest in some silk pillow covers, you’ll be glad you did and your hair will thank you.

Sun Is not your friend

SPF is vital when you are going out. You do apply it to your face and body but do you protect your hair? There are hair sprays and serums available on market that will protect it from harsh sun rays.

Towel drying

Have you ever thought about the possibility of your hair getting damaged by a towel? It does get damaged, a lot more damaged than you think. The fabric of towels can agitate the cuticles of your hair, causing split ends and dryness. A good option is to use a micro fiber towel; t shirt will also work well.


Pulling back your sunglasses can potentially damage your hair follicles. It will damage your hair and can cause breakage. So when there is no sun, put them in your bag not over your head.

Dry shampoo

Dry shampoos are the latest craze these days. In order to prevent washing ones hair and giving some texture to the locks, people use dry shampoos. While it can be helpful but excessive use of hair shampoos can be extremely bad for your hair. So, use it in a moderate way.

Tight hair styles

I get that its summer and we all want our hair to be out of our faces. Loosen up your hair styles, high ponytails and tight buns are good once in a while. Try to make your hair styles less tight at the scalp by opting for a braid, a loose low bun or simply let your hair flow freely.

Brushing wet hair

It’s easier to tame wet hair than dry hair. That’s why we all tend to brush our hair when it’s wet. Brushing hair when wet can cause unwanted breakage and fall out. You hair is weaker when its wet, so brush it after it has completely dried or is at least damp. But never brush soaking wet hair.

Try to witness your hair care habits unless the only option left is to visit hair clinic Dubai. Small changes can make world of a difference.
