4 Daily Hair Habits To Avoid

When it comes to our hair, sometimes we may not realize we’re damaging our hair with our daily habits. To protect those glorious locks, keep these tips in mind! These are easy tips that will have a big impact on your hairs overall health, length and shine.

1. DON'T over-wash your hair

Stripping your hair of its natural oils can happen easily with too much shampooing, so be sure you don’t over-wash your hair. Ideally, you should be washing your hair every 3 – 4 days. And in between washes, try using a natural dry shampoo to keep your hair looking fresh!

2. DON'T scorch your hair

While we love our styling tools, they can often cause heat damage to our hair. Try to limit your use of heating elements (including hair dryers) to every other day to give your hair a break from all the heat. Try letting your hair air-dry or (if it’s wavy) braid it while it’s still wet before you go to bed. When you wake up, voila! You’ll have voluminous, naturally wavy hair for the day!

3. DON'T skimp on sleep

Yes, you heard us – you need your beauty sleep! Your body repairs and regenerates while you sleep and when you’re not getting enough, your body will be stressed. And as we’ve learned, negative stress can hinder hair growth. A good amount to aim for is somewhere between 6 – 9 hours per night. If you need natural help falling and staying asleep, check out our Beauty Sleep Complex.

4. DON'T brush too hard

When you’re taming those tangles, you want it done and done now! But brushing too hard can cause breakage, so try to be as gentle as possible with your hair to avoid stressing and damaging it. Our Denmam Hair Brush is specially designed to help you detangle the toughest twists without causing breakage. It’s especially great for those with sensitive scalps!
