Do You wonder Why Your Hair Is Constantly Cutting? Read These 6-Hair Washing Mistakes

It's fashion weekend where we give you some reasons why your hair end up tangling and cutting. I admire people with long natural hair and after my research, I have come to realize the reasons why some hair are longer and heathier than others. Here are six washing mistakes that leads to cutting or improper growth of hair.

MISTAKE 1: WASHING OF HAIR TOO OFTEN OR RARELY

 Washing of hair always disturbs the natural growth of hair and also induce cutting of the hair. leaving the hair for a long time before washing causes dry scalp and helps in subsequent development of dandruff. We are therefore recommended to wash our hair once in two or three weeks to maintain adequate hair growth and unusual cutting of the hair.

MISTAKE 2: FAILURE TO COMB HAIR BEFORE WASHING 

Most times we neglect combing our hair before washing with water. This is very harmful to our hair as it makes the hair to chop off always. When the hair is combed, some dropped hair are removed thereby preventing the hair from tangling during washing. combing the hair also helps to remove some surface impurities and allow shampoo nutrient to have healthier effect on the hair.

It is safe wash our hair by leaving the strands in a natural position. Cleansing hair in this way prevents hair tangling and cutting. If we gather the hair in lump, we might not get to to the root of the hair to remove the dirt. We might end up tangling the hair on our own if we choose that method.

MISTAKE 5: IMPROPER USE OF SHAMPOO AND HAIR CONDITIONER

Always choose the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair depending if you have an oily or dry scalp. Comb your hair before washing, foam the shampoo on your palms and apply to the hair root with your finger tips and distribute evenly over the entire surface of the head. Wash the shampoo off with warm water. Apply the hair conditioner and after some minutes, wash the hair thoroughly with water.

MISTAKE 6: RUBBING THE HAIR WITH TOWEL AFTER WASHING
