10 bad habits that can cause thinning hair

Hair fall is a common concern today. After searching for the reasons you might find different aspects related to issues in your daily lifestyle. That is why it is essential to be mindful with what are these:

Hence, below are 10 commonly seen bad habits that cause hair thinning

1. Using too many styling products

Some products who claim to keep your hair intact like sprays, etc. has high level of alcohol content that can cause harm to your hair. Due to high alcohol content it tends to make your hair dry and brittle. Hence, I recommend to choose styling products wisely.

2. Using too much heat on hair

Excessive heat on hair with blow dryers or hair straighteners tend to make your hair weak and cause hair fall. The high temperature of such products damage the hair protein, cuticles and this causes hair thinning.

3. Not oiling your hair

Oiling is an important step to keep your scalp and hair hydrated and nourished. Not oiling your hair or oiling only few times causes your hair to break.

4. Tight hairstyles

Tying your hair too tight gives excessive stress on the hair follicles and they get damaged. This may cause breakage of hair and a receding hairline.

5. Taking hot showers

Washing your hair with hot water tends to stress your hair strands and dehydrates it opening up the pores on your scalp. This may lead to excess oil production and will result in hair thinning.

6. Not washing your hair often

Taking shower after a long period of time builds up dandruff and dirt which then clogs the hair follicles to grow and results in hair thinning.

7. Not trimming your hair regularly

When hair loss occurs because your hair is damaged and prone to breakage, regular haircuts can help it look better. Hair that is regularly trimmed is less likely to become damaged and develop brittle split ends, which can travel up your hair shaft toward your scalp.

8. Combing wet hair

Wet hair is the weakest state of hair. And at that time brushing or combing your hair stresses the hair follicles leading to hair thinning.

9. Stress

Hair follicles are surrounded by and invaded by a network of nerve cells. Any adverse chemical activity in the nervous system might send unwanted signals to the hair follicles. Sleep deprivation is also a key factor leading to hair loss. Stress leads to sleep deprivation in many and then causes hair loss

10. Unhealthy diet

Intake of insufficient nutrients in your diet or skipping meals tends to hair loss. Our hair is primarily made up of proteins so it is important to make sure that you have enough of them. Our hair also needs supplements for its growth which mainly contains Biotin.

Hence I recommend Chicnutrix Bounce.
